It turns out, it is enough to change the way of life, to reconsider your diet and this will weaken the pace of progression of symptoms of osteoarthritis. There is evidence that women, due to weight loss, significantly reduced the risk of osteoarthritis of the knee joint.
Changes in lifestyle include the introduction of daily exercise. With this disease, regular exercises will help strengthen the muscles, will contribute to the growth of cartilage. It is worth considering that in this case high-noise sports can have a negative impact on the body.
Specialists usually recommend therapeutic regenerative workloads, which consist of special movements that perfectly support body biomechanics. It is good to include in the physical education complex exercises for strengthening the muscular system and the elements of aerobics.
Another important point in the fight against osteoarthritis - Vitamin mode. It is known that certain therapeutic effect can bring antioxidant vitamins, C and E. Vitamin D and calcium are recommended for strengthening bone tissue. In this case, the daily dose of calcium should be 1000-1200 mg, and vitamin D - should not exceed 1200 units.
Useful for osteoarthritis thermal treatments. The use of warmed wax (paraffin), the constant wearing of warm woolen socks helps relax the muscles and relieve pain.
There are also additional devices - orthoses that are made from various materials. Such devices are used to improve the motor function, to maintain, align, prevent the destruction and deformation of the joints. The orthoses consist of tires and bandages that fix the inflamed joints in the correct position and evenly distribute the weight of the body to the musculoskeletal system. In some cases, patients use walkers, crutches, sticks and shoes with orthopedic effect.
Ophthalmic drugs may be weakened, including acetaminophen (tyylenol), aspirin, ibuprofen (Motrin, advil), naproxen (Ali), and ketoprofen (aridis). The latest developments in pharmaceuticals include drugs containing chondroitin sulfates and aminoglucose, which are natural components of synovial fluid.
It is known that aminoglucose perfectly removes inflammatory processes and promotes the formation of a new cartilage. It is also important to know that aminoglyacillosis increases the level of sugar in the blood - before it is used, people suffering from diabetes must always consult with a doctor.
It has been shown that aminoglucose slows the rate of progression of osteoarthrosis of the knee joint.
