There are many complementary therapies to reduce osteoarthristic symptoms. Besides, the medication should have a combination with diet, exercise. That’s a long and effective treatment

 

Regular exercise:

 

National Institute of arthritis, musculoskeletal and skin diseases of America (NIAMS) recommended that people with arthritis should apply three types of exercise:

  • Exercises like dance to help maintain normal joint motion, reduce stiffness and increase flexibility.
  • Strengthen the weightlifting exercises to help increase muscle strength.
  • The aerobic exercise or exercises such as cycling to improve cardiovascular health, help control weight, and improve overall function. Weight control is important because the weight will create extra pressure on many joints.

The decline in female physiology and disease issues about Osteoarthritis

Women in middle age especially in autumn is the period of physiological decline that causes Osteoarthritis making many people worry

The common symptoms often occur such as menstrual disorders, hot flashes, sweating, easy to cardiovascular disease, being often tired, no restful sleep, decreasing memory, often frustrated, angry.

However, it can be said that problems with Osteoarthritis is the most popular permanent concerned making women become more pessimistic and depressed.

The decline in female physiology and disease issues about Osteoarthritis – 1

The most common symptom of osteoarthritis patients in physiological decline phase is painful joints. The pain may become more dull or intense when the weather changes.

The main reason is due to the aging of the body making joint degeneration and leading to difficulty walking, swollen joints, causing pain, affecting daily life or labor and decreasing life quality.

As far as data showed that nearly 1/3 of women after menopause have to face with bone density decline, and they will lose about 35% bone density and 50% osteoporosis.

Actually, this situation has started early but just happening a lot faster during pre-menopause – menopause as a result of declining female physiology.

Therefore, women must be proactive in preventing Osteoarthritis as well as other diseases and have a treatment of osteoarthritis before entering the physiological decline phase.

If the prognosis lasts for many years, the joints were deformed, natural therapies cannot recover intact joints but can help patients reduce pain and are not dependent on toxic drugs.

Lose weight

The reduction of weight would be helpful to patients having rheumatoid arthritis if phenomena are overweight, losing weight can help reduce mechanical stress into leg joints, reduce joint destruction, reduce pain and also reduce stiffness.

Eat carbohydrate fully-rich foods such as rice, wheat, potato to be not malnourished. If rheumatoid arthritis patients are being taken drugs made from teroids (cortisol, prednisone, medexa …), they should avoid foods containing high sugar level such as cakes or tea.

Protein

Use 50 g of meat, 100 g of beans every day. If you can, you should eat 3-4 eggs / week (who have high cholesterol should be reduced to 1-2 fruits / week).

In addition, replace rather less animal protein by vegetable protein. Should increase in drinking milk as it is an important source supplying calcium, is good for arthritis patients.

Lipid

Some studies show that saturated fat can increase inflammation in the body. These foods contain high amounts of saturated fats such as animal products: smoked pork, beef, butter can increase prostaglandin. Prostaglandins are substances causing inflammation, pain, swelling and joint destruction in rheumatoid arthritis patients.

These patients should not take more than 20 g of vegetable oil per day and should use peanut oil, sesame oil…

Omega-3 fatty acid system is capable of inhibiting the response of the immune system, reducing reactions of arthritis, relieving the symptoms of the disease. Omega-3 is found in fish oil as salmon, mackerel, herring, sardines, tuna

Some studies when the patient take from 2-4g of fish oil, even 5g / day, shows some promising results: joints are less stiff and less painful.

Vegetables and fiber

Vegetables are in green or yellow containing more antioxidants such as beta-cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, and vitamin C can effectively deter arthritis.

What is degenerative osteoarthritis ?

What is degenerative osteoarthritis?

Degenerative osteoarthritis has clinical manifestations by joint pain and chronic spine pain, no expression of inflammation. Basic lesion of the disease is degeneration of the articular cartilage and intervertebral discs, the changes in the bone under the cartilage and synovium. The main disease cause is aging and an overload pressure and stretching of cartilage

What cause degenerative osteoarthristis:

The aging

In adult, cartilage cells are incapable of reproduction and regeneration, on the other hand when people get older, along with the body aging, cartilage cells gradually decreasing synthetic function creating collagen fibers and mucopolysacarit, making cartilage erosion in quality espescially the elasticity and strength

Mechanical factors

This is an important factor accelerating the degenerative process,  especially the secondary degeneration, which illustrates a sudden increase compressive force per surface area unit of the joints and intervertebral discs, also known as overload, including:

  • The birth defects change the normal compression pressure of joints and spine.
  • The secondary deformation after injuries, tumor and dysplasia alters relationship and morphology of joints and spine.
  • The increase in load due to excessive weight gain such as obesity or occupation.

Due to this characteristic, Rheumatoid arthritis is classified in autoimmune disease group that means the body produces antibodies against components in the body.

In rheumatoid arthritis, what exact cause makes the immune system disorder and start attacking healthy tissue.

According to the results of the latest research of The United Disease Control Center concluded that 46.6 million American adults in the US, accounting for 21.6% of the United State population have to suffer from arthritis, the disease typically causes knee osteoarthritis. The percentage of women accounts for 25.4% but that of male accounts for 17.6%.

The pain makes so many people cannot perform daily activities such as getting out of bed, going up and down stairs and driving.

The knee joints are fixed together by ligaments and tendons connecting bone to bone (at the joints), otherwise, tendons connect muscles to bones. Between the heads of bone is the cartilage that allows them slide over each other smoothly.. Therefore, any elements listed above can cause knee osteoarthritis

Knowledge of Osteoarthritis hip

Knowledge of Osteoarthritis hip

Overview

Hip arthritis is a common form of arthritis. It affects the hip joints similar to how it affects the knee. Hip joint is a connecter of pelvis or pelvis with femur.

Cause of Osteoarthritis hip

Hip arthritis caused by hip injury before. The change in alignment of the hip, for example, after fracturing hip or bone around can lead to weight distribution is not uniform on the hip. This situation increases the wear and tear of the joints.

Some people are born with deformed hip joint. This disease is called hip dysplasia (DDH). Serious cases of DDH are usually detected from birth or an early stage in life, but milder forms of DDH can only start annoying for adults.

Necrosis (AVN) is another cause leading to degeneration of the hip joint. In this case, the femoral head (femoral ball, or thighbone) lost a significant portion of its blood supplying and begins to die. Femoral head is dead cannot stand with the high pressure that is transmitted through the hip joint even during normal activities such as walking and climbing stairs, and over the time it becomes increasingly distorted. AVN related to alcoholism, fractures and hip bone deviation, and treatment with corticosteroids in time treating for other patient. In some cases, the cause of hip arthritis cannot be determined. In early stage necrosis can usually be diagnosed by magnetic resonance imaging MRI. However, in such cases, the hip osteoarthritis may be related to the effects of aging and wear and tear over time.

Symptom of Osteoarthritis hip

The most common symptoms are pain while putting weight on the hip is inflamed such as when walking or even sitting for long time. The pain usually occurs in the groin or buttocks, or sometimes on the front of the thigh.
