What is Osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis is a degeneration of the cartilage and joint tissues in the body that causes pain, stiffness and reduced mobility. It can also cause inflammation and swelling to develop around joints. Osteoarthritis affects about 8 million Americans age 65 or older and approximately 27 million people worldwide. The condition usually occurs gradually over time, but it may start suddenly following an injury. The most common symptoms are
– Joint pain that worsens with the use
– Stiffness upon waking – Loss of function (painful movements) – Decreased range of motion (for example, bending down to tie shoes) – Morning stiffness lasting more than one hour after getting out of bed or rising from sitting in a chair for long periods of time
– Decreased grip strength and muscle control in the hand. The symptoms may vary from mild to severe, depending on the location and severity of the damage to joints or surrounding tissues. Sometimes, osteoarthritis is referred to as degenerative joint disease because age is one of the main risk factors for developing the condition.
Cause of Osteoarthritis
Degeneration of the cartilage results in Osteoarthritis, due to which it causes rubbing of bones and reduction of joint movement.
Few causes of Osteoarthritis are given below;
- Joint Injury or trauma
- Muscle weakness
- Inappropriate footwear (causing increased and imbalanced pressure on the knees)
- Older age
- Having family members with OA
- Joint injury or repetitive use (overuse) of joints
- Joint deformities such as unequal leg length, bowlegs, or knock knees
- Presence of Gout, rheumatoid arthritis, septic arthritis, or any other disease that affects bones or joints
Risk Factors For Osteoarthritis
The contributory factors to osteoarthriris are
– Female gender – Stress – Obesity – Allergies (such as food allergies) – No history of trauma or injury that resulted in broken bones – Sedentary lifestyle
* Osteoarthritis is most commonly found around weight-bearing joints such as hips, knees, and ankles although it can occur in other places like hands. Therefore, individuals who are most likely to develop osteoarthritis include: – Those who are overweight – Those who participate in physical activity and sports that involve repetitive joint motion for longer periods of time such as running or jumping.
– People over the age of 35 who have had long-term stress on their joints, such as from improper body weight distribution (carrying heavy bags on shoulders, holding babies or toddlers with arms outstretched) * The use of anti-inflammatory medications on a regular basis may also affect your risk.* Although cartilage does not have blood vessels, it has a connective sheath that contains nerves.
These nerves send pain signals to the brain when the tissue is damaged by wear and tear or an injury. Fibroblast cells then break down the healthy cartilage tissue to form scar-like fibrous tissue.* This process is what causes the symptoms of osteoarthritis. To stop or slow down the progression of osteoarthritis, it is necessary to reduce excessive use and weight-bearing on joints for patients with mild disease. For patients with moderate to severe disease, surgery may be required.
Symptoms of Osteoarthritis
Common symptoms of Osteoarthritis are
- Pain: Your joint may hurt during or after movement.
- Tenderness: Your joint may feel tender when you apply light pressure to it.
- Stiffness: Joint stiffness may be most noticeable when you wake up in the morning or after a period of inactivity.
- Loss of flexibility: You may not be able to move your joint through its full range of motion.
- Grating sensation: You may hear or feel a grating sensation when you use the joint.
- Bone spurs: These extra bits of bone, which feel like hard lumps, may form around the affected joint.
- Swelling: There may be swelling and warmth and creaking of the affected joints.
- Exercise: Worsens after exercise and from putting weight on the joint
- Seasonal: It worsens in monsoon
- Mobility: Limited mobility of the joint
Diagnosis of Osteoarthritis
A diagnosis of a condition is the identification of its presence and what might have caused it. A diagnosis for osteoarthritis may include whether the condition is acute or chronic, and whether there are signs of inflammation. Sometimes doctors will look at the size of the joint space as well to see if there is any narrowing due to osteophytes which are bony projections. Doctors will also examine how symptoms affect an individual’s function and use of their joints, looking at factors such as range of motion.
-What does an x-ray show?
-Is this a chronic or acute condition?
-Is there evidence of swelling around the joints?
- Limitation of movements
- Grating sensation
Investigation and lab tests:
- Blood tests: To rule out any other causes of Joint pain such as Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Treatment of Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis treatment plans can involve:
- Weight control.
- Rest and joint care.
- Nondrug pain relief techniques to control pain.
- Complementary and alternative therapies.
Maintaining a healthy weight, exercising, and using special devices to help you get around can also have a big impact on your symptoms.
Losing weight if you are overweight or obese can help take pressure off your joints.
People with gout should avoid alcohol and foods that are high in purines, and that includes organ meats (liver, kidney), dried beans, sardines, anchovies, asparagus, and mushrooms. When the body breaks down purines, it produces uric acid, and excess uric acid causes painful crystals to deposit in the joints. Making these changes may reduce flare ups, but they almost never cure the condition
Relieving Stiff Joints With Exercise
When you’re in pain, the last thing you may want to do is exercise, but it’s actually one of the best things you can do for your joints. Aerobic, strength-training, and stretching exercises can all be helpful. Work with your doctor to learn what exercises are safe for you to do. Physical therapy is also a common part of treatment in people with OA. Regular exercise can also help you maintain a healthy weight.
Are surgeries available for treating Osteoarthritis?
Surgeries are available for certain cases of osteoarthritis. One way in which a surgical procedure may be needed is to replace the damaged cartilage or bone with an artificial joint. The other type of surgery that is used for treating arthritis is called arthroscopy. In this instance, the surgeon will insert a very small camera into the joint and use the images to determine how best to remove any degenerative tissue without causing further damage to the joint.
Homeopathic Treatment of Osteoarthritis
Homeopathy offers complete relief from all the symptoms of Osteoarthritis.
The medication can help in controlling pain as well as improving the mobility of the joints.
Most patients notice a reduction in the pain and stiffness after commencing treatment and improved mobility of the joints.
An overall general improvement in the health is also noted by majority of them
OA is a degenerative condition, it may not be possible to reverse the changes that have already occurred at the microscopic level on the joints but it is possible to slow down the further progress of the condition. In advanced cases, palliation is all that can be offered to the patients.
Also, it can prevent from complications that can occur in the condition like:
- A rapid, complete breakdown of cartilage resulting in loose tissue material in the joint (chondrolysis).
- Bone death (osteonecrosis).
- Stress fractures (hairline crack in the bone that develops gradually in response to repeated injury or stress).
- Bleeding inside the joint.
- Infection in the joint.
- Deterioration or rupture of the tendons and ligaments around the joints, leading to loss of stability.
- Pinched nerve (in osteoarthritis of the spine).
