Arthritis - Symptom, Treatment And Causes

What is Arthritis ?

You may have arthritis if you experience stiffness and pain or moving around is difficult. Swelling of the joints and pain is there in most types of arthritis. The junction at which two bones connect is called a joint, like the knee or elbow. With time an inflamed joint can get badly damaged. The skin and eyes may also get affected in certain types of arthritis.

The different kinds of arthritis are.

  • Osteoarthritis- It is the most prevalent kind of arthritis. An injury or aging is usually the cause for osteoarthritis.
  • Autoimmune arthritis- It happens due to the immune system attacking functional cells in the body by accident. The commonest type of this arthritis is rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Infectious arthritis- It spreads to the joint from a different body part.
  • Juvenile arthritis- It takes place in children.
  • Psoriatic arthritis- People with psoriasis are affected by this.
  • Gout- When there is an excess build-up of uric acid within the body, it leads to gout. It generally originates from the toes. Arthritis can’t be cured but several treatments are available that may successfully alleviate the pain.

Here are some non-surgical treatments:

  • Changes in lifestyle- Certain daily habits and changes in life can reduce the spread of the disease and help with the pain as well.
  • Reducing activities that make the condition worse.
  • Changing to activities that reduce impact on the ankles and feet, instead of the high impact ones.
  • Weight loss to decrease the impact on joints for increase in function and pain reduction.
  • Physical therapy- Certain exercises help increase the range of flexibility and motion. The ankle and feet muscles can be built up as well.

A physiotherapist or a doctor can create a customized exercise regime to meet your lifestyle and needs. Even though physiotherapy aims to alleviate pain, sometimes it may have the opposite effect due to friction build up on the joints. If this happens, then an alternative treatment needs to be sought and you should immediately consult your doctor.

Assistive devices- Walking with a cane or wearing braces might improve mobility. Custom made shoes for arthritis, reduce pain as well.

Medications- Painkillers like naproxen and ibuprofen reduce pain and swelling. Cortisone injections may relieve pain and help manage the inflammation. These however, aren’t permanent. Surgery helps with the pain and makes life functional again. It may however take up to 9 months for full recovery.

Can't be cured, but treatment helps Require medical diagnosis Lab test always required Chronic: can last for years or be lifelong
Symptoms
Increase in swelling and pain in mornings, or after resting and sitting Motion induced pain Vigorous activity induced pain Redness, warmth and swelling in the joints. Tenderness on applying pressure to the joint.

Ways To Treat Plantar Fasciitis!

Ways To Treat Plantar Fasciitis!

Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of pain on the bottom of the heel.

Plantar fasciitis occurs when the strong band of tissue that supports the arch of your foot becomes irritated and inflamed. The plantar fascia is a long, thin ligament that lies directly beneath the skin on the bottom of your foot. It connects the heel to the front of your foot and supports the arch of your foot. The plantar fascia is designed to absorb the high stresses and strains we place on our feet. But, sometimes, too much pressure damages or tears the tissues. The body's natural response to injury is inflammation, which results in the heel pain and stiffness of plantar fasciitis. In most cases, plantar fasciitis develops without a specific, identifiable reason.

There are, however, many factors that can make you more prone to the condition:

  • Tighter calf muscles that make it difficult to flex your foot and bring your toes up toward your shin 
  • Obesity 
  • Very high arch 
  • Repetitive impact activity (running/sports) 
  • New or increased activity

Although many people with plantar fasciitis have heel spurs, spurs are not the cause of plantar fasciitis pain. Because the spur is not the cause of plantar fasciitis, the pain can be treated without removing the spur.

The most common symptoms of plantar fasciitis include:

  • Pain on the bottom of the foot near the heel 
  • Pain with the first few steps after getting out of bed in the morning, or after a long period of rest, such as after a long car ride. The pain subsides after a few minutes of walking 
  • Greater pain after (not during) exercise or activity

Tests

X-rays provide clear images of bones. They are useful in ruling out other causes of heel pain, such as fractures or arthritis. Heel spurs can be seen on an x-ray.

Other imaging tests, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound, are not routinely used to diagnose plantar fasciitis. They are rarely ordered. An MRI scan may be used if the heel pain is not relieved by initial treatment methods.

Treatment

  • More than 90% of patients with plantar fasciitis will improve within 10 months of starting simple treatment methods.
  • Rest. Decreasing or even stopping the activities that make the pain worse is the first step in reducing the pain. You may need to stop athletic activities where your feet pound on hard surfaces (for example, running or step aerobics).
  • Ice. Rolling your foot over a cold water bottle or ice for 20 minutes is effective. This can be done 3 to 4 times a day.
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication. Drugs such as ibuprofen or naproxen reduce pain and inflammation.
  • Exercise. Plantar fasciitis is aggravated by tight muscles in your feet and calves. Stretching your calves and plantar fascia is the most effective way to relieve the pain that comes with this condition.
  • Calf stretch
  • Plantar fascia stretch
  • Cortisone injections
  • Supportive shoes and orthotics
  • Night Splints
  • Physical therapy
  • Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT)
  • Surgery is considered only after 12 months of aggressive nonsurgical treatment.

Arthritis Of The Shoulder- What Are The Symptoms and Causes?

Arthritis Of The Shoulder- What Are The Symptoms and Causes?

Arthritis is a common ailment that affects a majority of adults across the globe. It can affect any joint in the body and cause inflammation, pain, and swelling. When arthritis affects the shoulders, it causes stiffness, pain, and lack of movement.

Signs and symptoms of arthritis of the shoulder:
The only symptom caused by shoulder arthritis is a pain, which, in turn, causes a limited range of motion. It is worth discussing these symptoms in detail:

The Symptoms-

  1. Pain: Any kind of activity concerning the shoulder aggravates the pain and it usually worsens with the passage of time. When arthritis affects the glenohumeral shoulder joint, the pain is mostly felt at the back of the shoulder and tends to get more severe with weather changes. Many patients also complain of pain present deep in the joint. On the other hand, the pain of arthritis in the acromioclavicular joint is centred on the topmost part of the shoulder. In some people, rheumatoid arthritis affects the entire shoulder when both acromioclavicular and glenohumeral shoulder joints are affected.
  2. Lack of motion: The pain caused by arthritis of the shoulder leads to a limited range of motion and it may be difficult to take part in a common day to day activities as well. People affected with arthritis of the shoulder are not able to lift their arm or comb their hair or pick up something from the ground. There could also be a snapping sound when one tries to move his or her shoulder.

But not all individuals affected by shoulder arthritis have pain and loss of range of motion. Some people having severe joint problems have very few symptoms.

Causes of Arthritis of the Shoulder!
Age is one of the most compelling causes of shoulder arthritis as it generally affects people aged over 50 years. However, it may also occur in younger individuals after experiencing a trauma or injury such as an accident or fracture or dislocation or severe infection. Arthritis of the A-C joints affects younger people while that of the G-H joint affects older people though there can be exceptions as well. Also, arthritis is genetic as well which means in a family affected with arthritis, every individual possesses a risk of being affected by it. Other causes of arthritis include:

  1. Gout: Gout is arthritis that occurs when there is an accumulation of excess uric acid.
  2. Juvenile arthritis: This kind of arthritis leads to pain, swelling and stiffness in the shoulders.
  3. Rheumatoid arthritis: This is a chronic inflammatory disease of the joints which takes place when the immune system instead of shielding the body from foreign bodies, attacks the thin membrane lining of the joints.

Although there is no treatment that can absolutely cure arthritis of the shoulder, numerous pain management options are available. It is important to talk to an expert and decide which course of action can offer maximum relief.

9 Amazing Facts About Arthritis!

Arthritis is a disease that affects the joints, muscles and soft tissues, which cause stiffness, disability and pain. It is one of the complex conditions and has also been discovered in the remains of people living more than 500,000 years ago.

Although it is usually found in people above 50 years, in rare cases, it can affect younger generations as well. The three most common forms are osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis. The symptoms of some arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis, include the following:

These symptoms typically last more than two weeks.

Few facts about arthritis
Most people, even though diagnosed with arthritis, are unaware of the following facts:

  1. Snakes, bees, and ants: After years of treatment, some people have turned to specific natural therapies that come from snakes, bees and ants. As per a study by researchers in Brazil, bee sting venom helps reduce the symptoms of arthritis.
  2. Gout is a form of arthritis: Repeated flare-ups, pain and swelling are the result of uric acid, built around the joints. This can be due to genetic predisposition, some diseases and consumption of excess meat, seafood, fructose-sweetened drinks or alcohol. The bunion joint that connects the big toe to the foot is often affected first in people who have gout.
  3. Children get arthritis too: Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is the most common amongst children and affects kids between the ages of 1 - 3 or 8 - 12 years. It strikes girls about twice as often as boys. As per a recent survey, 1 in every 250 children globally suffers from arthritis.
  4. Injuries increase the risk of arthritis: Injured joints are prone to develop osteoarthritis (OA). People with knee injuries have six times the chance, while those with hip injuries are three times more likely to develop OA.
  5. Climate cannot cure: People have a misconception that wet, cold climates cause arthritis rather than a warmer climate. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Orthopaedics confirmed the same frequency for both warm and cold climates. However, sore joints find warm atmosphere more soothing.
  6. Obesity increases the risk: Excess weight is one of the primary causes of osteoarthritis, especially for weight-bearing joints like knees, and to less extended hips. But there is also a higher risk to joints like ankles, back, big toes and hands.
  7. Animals can also develop: Not only humans but animals like dogs, cats and others can also develop osteoarthritis. The symptoms are almost the same as the ones faced by a human. It can also lead to a loss of appetite, which can cause weight loss.
  8. Race counts: Both whites and African Americans experience arthritis at similar rates. However, blacks have higher chances of severe joint pain and limitations in activity as compared to whites.
  9. Women are prone to arthritis: Statistics show that women have a significantly higher risk for all types of arthritis except gout. As per the Arthritis Community, Research & Evaluation Unit, women are twofold more prone to arthritis than men.

Rheumatoid Arthritis - Symptoms To Watch Out For!

Rheumatoid Arthritis - Symptoms To Watch Out For!

Rheumatoid arthritis affects the lining of the joints and causes pain and swelling that may lead to joint deformity and erosion if left untreated. This disorder of the auto-immunological system occurs when the body's immune system attacks the body's own tissues.

This condition is progressive in nature, and can cause the destruction of joints, leading to functional and locomotive disability.Though rheumatoid arthritis is a disease that can last for years, patients may not experience any symptoms for a long time. In some cases, the disease may affect other parts of the body like the eyes, lungs, and the heart.

Symptoms of the disease:

  • Fever, fatigue and loss of weight: Fatigue is a common symptom of rheumatoid arthritis. It may be a result of the body's reaction to insomnia, anemia, and inflammation. It may also be caused due to loss of appetite and the consequent and unintended weight loss. Sometimes rheumatoid arthritis is also accompanied by fever.
  • Problems in the joints: One of the most common symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis is swelling of the joints that become tender and painful. During the early days, only the smaller joints are affected, especially the finger and toe joints. However as the disease worsens, the symptoms spread to other body parts like knees, wrists, elbows, ankles etc. Joint redness and warmth are also characteristic features of rheumatoid arthritis. It is also recognized by joint deformity and stiff joints.
  • Rheumatoid nodules: Another symptom of rheumatoid arthritis is the presence of firm bumps of tissues under the skin on the arms. These bumps are known as rheumatoid nodules and may be painful. The nodules may come and go depending on the severity of the disease at a particular time. During flares, they may appear, and they may subside during the periods of remission just as all the other symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.

Arthritis - Can Poor Diet and Nutrition Lead To It?

One of the most common diseases that afflict a large section of the population is arthritis. It is common among people who are above 40 years of age. Acute joint pain, difficulties in movement and weakened bones are among the most common symptoms of arthritis. Given the fact that it is a condition that has permeated into modern life so deeply is what makes arthritis one of the most feared illnesses of this time. Although there are multiple forms of arthritis, there are primarily two types, which are:

  1. Osteoarthritis: This is characterized by a breakdown of the cartilage between the bones. It is mostly known to affect a person’s joints.
  2. Rheumatoid Arthritis: This is a form of auto immune disease that severely affects the lining within the joints of bones.

Causes
The causes of arthritis might vary from person to person. Some of them are discussed below:

  1. Diet and nutrition habits: Some food items, especially red meat and products derived from animals can cause a rise in the level of uric acid thus, increasing the risks of arthritis as well as gout. Smoking also has been known to worsen this condition.
  2. Genetic predisposition: Some people are more prone to develop arthritis as they are genetically predisposed to it.
  3. Problem in the immune system: Rheumatoid arthritis is one condition which is caused by the attack of immune system on the lining of the joints within the body.

Risk factors for arthritis include:

  1. Obesity: The joints are subject to excess stress because of the excess weight. This results in a higher risk of arthritis in obese people.
  2. Age: The risk of arthritis increases with age.
  3. Family history: It is possible for you to be vulnerable to this disorder if arthritis runs in the family.
  4. Previous injury: People who have had a previous joint injury are more susceptible to arthritis.

Typical symptoms of both forms of arthritis are:

  1. Redness in the affected areas
  2. Stiffness in the joints
  3. Pain in the joints of the body
  4. Swelling in particular joints or most joints of the body
  5. Decreased mobility either due to pain or stiffness

Hello, Thanks for the query. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder. In severe type disease, there is a relentless progress in the inflammatory process, which leads to joint deformities. Certain drugs do work in reducing pain and swelling etc. But the damage continues. There is really no permanent treatment or cure. Thanks.

In allopathy there is no permanent treatment of this as your age is 22 yr, and recently onset of disease can be cured by ayurveda otherwise it will be difficult to treat ,so first I will tell you this disease is mainly aggrevated by aam formation if you stomach is not clear or motion it occurs again and again so try to take healthy diet, avoid ,chilli, spice,junk food etc, if your digestion is not proper then correct it causes of swelling is many so identify the season or duration, morning or evening stiffness etc, these will correct with yoga asan likeVirasana Malasana Makarasana Utthita Parsvakonasana Parsvottanasana Trikonasana Garudasana etc it helps to reduce swelling and stiffness, use sand fomentation on painful and sweeling joint gives felief from both, or hot fomentation with eranda patra decoction all these remedies gives relef but you have to take panchkarm treatment for permanent solution.

Know More About Arthritis
Dear friends, I am Dr Shekhar Shrivastav. I am senior consultant orthopaedic at Sant Parmanand Hospital, Delhi. Today, we'll be discussing Arthritis and specifically arthritis of the knee joint.

Now people usually come and ask me what do you mean by arthritis. So arthritis is the inflammation of the joint. Joint is made up of two ends of the bone which are lined by an articular cartilage which helps in a smooth motion of the joint. So when that cartilage gets destroyed you get arthritis. Now it can get destroyed due to various reasons but the most common reasons are due to ageing process which we call osteoarthritis. So there is degenerative wear and tear of the joint which leads to osteoarthritis or there can be an inflammatory cause such as rheumatoid arthritis which involves the lining of the joint and damages the cartilage. Now then people ask or most of the people who come to us with arthritis involve arthritis of the knee joint. So knee joint is the joint which is common in which is most commonly involved in osteoarthritis of the knee joint. The patient usually comes with pain, swelling and stiffness. They have difficulty in walking, climbing stairs and sometimes in severe cases, they have pain even at rest.

How do we manage that?

Now in order to manage that first, we should know what is the cause of arthritis? So we do some x-rays. X-rays give us an idea about the cause of arthritis as well as the extent of the damage. Now we also go for some blood tests which will give us an information if it's because of an inflammation or any infection. So these are the various causes of arthritis.

Now how do you manage our practice?

Patient has a company with pain, swelling and such disability so initially, we start with conservative management which is nonoperative management. So in that we ask the patient to do some lifestyle modification like we asked them to avoid using stairs or if they are using stairs then they have to use a railing so that there is not much stress on the joints. If they are into sports then we ask them to shift from contact sports like jogging or Aerobic to low impact exercises like swimming or cycling. We send them for physiotherapy. Physiotherapy helps a lot in arthritis. It helps in gaining strength in the muscles which protects the joint and it also gives increased flexibility and moment of the joint. We can give some medications and form of painkillers and thin perimeter because they reduce the inflammation, reduces the pain and in acute cases we can also inject the region.

Now, in severe arthritis when all this treatment has failed in that case it requires surgery. Surgery can be in different form. If the patient is having any loose fragment which is causing locking, then, in that case, we can go for arthroscope which is a keyhole surgery, where we make just small incisions like the tip of this pen, we put our instruments inside and we take out that piece which is a simple thing. In severe cases, we go for replacements. So it can be either partial replacement or total knee replacement. Now in severe cases with patients of great disability who have difficulty in walking who have pain on each step, who have pain even at rest, knee replacement surgery is a boon for these patients. It increases their activity, it increases their social life and it also makes them more mobile.

So if you want to know more about arthritis, if you are suffering from this problem and you want treatment you can contact me through lybrate or you can contact me at Sant Parmanand Hospital, Delhi.

Thank you.

Hello Viewers!

Welcome to our channel. Me Dr. Priyanka Suneet Shende aap sab ka is channel pe swagat karti hun. Pichle video me humne jana aahar kya hai. Ise kis tarike se hume lena chaiiye. Aahar me hume kis sabzi ko importance dena chaiye, vo sab humne jana. Humne virudh aahar ke bare me bhi jankari li. Aaj hum is virudh ahar se utpan hone vali ek mehtavpuran bimari ke bare me janenge. Jiska name hai amavat. Amavat ko agar hum kisi modern science me compare karna chahenge to vo ho skta hai rheumatoid arthritis. Ji han rheumatoid arthritis ka mul karan modern science me btaya nhi gya hai. Ise autoimmune disease kha gya hai. Lekin ayurved iska mul karan bhi btata hai or ise jad se nikalne k lia bhi paryas krta hai.

To ye ama kya hai? Ana means immature essential nutrients which form into the stomach due to the indigestion or due to the sluggish digestion which goes to the circulation as in immature form which stored into the cells. Its neither digested nor flushed out and it clogs all our channel nutrients in our body. So, ama ek apachit ahar hai jo hmare body me apachit tarike se jama ho jata hai. Jhan jhan pe cavity hai, jhan pe joint hai ya fir lungs hai, heart hai, vhan pe ye store kia jata hai. Or apachit hone ki vjha se na hi ye digestion me ata hai or na hi hum ise nikal bahar kr skte hain. Islia aise hi body me ye jama rehta hai. Or dhirghkalin aajar utpan krta hai. To iske primary symptoms kya hai.

Isese pehle hum iske hetu k bare me jante hain jaise mene pehle btaya virudh ahar age ka main hetu hai vo kya hai virudh ahar, aap pichle video me dekh skte hain.

To iske next symptoms kya hai jisme main hai joints pe swelling aa jana. Sabse mehtavpurn symptoms hai ki subha joints me stiffens aa jata hai jiksi vjha se patient joint move nhi kr pata, uth nhi pata hai. Itna severe usme jakdan ati hai. To morning stiffness is the first symptom jisko hum other disease se differentiate kar skte hain. Isme ek typical type of pain rehta hai.

Jisko hum vrishchik dumshvat vedana. Mtlb just like scorpion sting. Bichu ke katne ke jaise dunk marta hai. To agar humne ye primary symptoms treat nhi kia then it goes into the next worst condition, which is difficult to treat. Morning joint stiffness ko agar hum garam pani se seke to ye khul jati hai. Main joint jo rehta hai hand and foot ke, elbow joint, hip joint, ya fir hmara knee joint, ye main joint ke upar swelling rehti hai. Redness rehta hai. Ye bhi ek typical sign hai. Uske sath me excessive salivation, excessive urination hota hai. Indigestion rehta hai. Constipation rehta hai. To ye sab iske main symptoms hai. Iske sath me hum kya kya test kar skte hain jisme first ESR hum kar k dekh skte hain or C-reactive protein, ye hum kr k dekh skte hain.

Isko agar treat nhi kia to it goes to a next difficult level jhan pe pure joint me vakrata mtlb joint pure tede ho jate hain. Jisko treat karna bhut hi jyada difficult ho jata hai. Modern science ke according isme symptoms ke according treatment dia jata hai jisme NSER, DSER, anti-inflammatory, anti-pain killer ya for steroid, iska istemal kia jata hai. Jiski vjha se pain kuch samay k lia kam ho jata hai. Lekin disease as it is vhan pe rehta hai. Ayurved me iska mul karan pta hai. Iske lia isko jad se nikalne k lia bhi paryas kia jata hai.
