Chronic arthritis pain and treatments

Many suffer from chronic arthritis pain;  Especially neck pain, back pain, knee pain, shoulder pain etc. are noteworthy.  One of them is pain due to age-related osteoporosis.  Such as cervical spondylosis, lumbar spondylosis, osteoarthritis etc.

In addition, some other chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis or spondyloarthropathy.  Physiotherapy is also effective in treating these ailments along with the treatment of specialist doctors.

Spondylolisthesis: It is a degenerative disease of the vertebrae of the spine.  Here, in addition to vertebral erosion, some six new bones grow, called osteophytes.  In spondylolisthesis, the gap between the two vertebrae is reduced, which puts pressure on the nerve root and causes the nerve to feel pain.  If it is in the neck part of the spine, it is called cervical spondylosis and when it is in the lumbar part of the spine, it is called lumbar spondylosis.

Osteoarthritis: It is also an age-related degeneration of the internal structure of the bone joint.  This anger causes the cartilage inside the joint and the joint surface to erode, and the internal synovial fluid in the joint also decreases.  This reduces the gap inside the joint.  Then it is difficult to move the joint of the affected rage.  With osteoarthritis of the knee, the patient cannot sit down, it is difficult to sit on the toilet, it is difficult to go up and down the stairs.

Rheumatoid arthritis: This rage affects six joints of the hands and feet.  Pain and swelling in the joints, especially when you wake up in the morning, the pain of anger increases a lot.  Walking for a while reduces it a bit.

Ankylosing spondylitis: This is also a spinal arthritis rage, which first attacks the lower part of the spine;  Later it gradually spreads to other parts of the spine.  The worst part of this rage is that it destroys the normal shape of the spine and makes the spine stiff.  As a result, the affected person cannot wrap around the neck and waist of the spine and cannot lean forward.

Physiotherapy treatment for chronic pain: Spondylosis or osteoarthritis is an age-old bone loss disease that cannot be completely cured.  However, it is possible to reduce the pain of anger through treatment.  Besides, if you follow some rules and do some exercises as directed by the doctor, you will feel better.  Similarly, both rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis are not completely curable.  In this case also the patient has to take some medicine as well as physiotherapy treatment and certain exercises.  Physiotherapy is a treatment without any side effects, long-term treatment, painkillers, immunological drugs as well as treatment of such patients as advised by the rheumatologist.  However, in the case of taking physiotherapy treatment, the treatment must be taken under the supervision of a specialist physiotherapy doctor.
