Arthritis

In spite of being very common, arthritis is a condition not well understood. The term ‘arthritis’ is actually an informal term for joint pain or disease, and it does not refer to a single disease. More than 100 types of arthritis exist and they all have similar symptoms. Arthritis can affect people of all ages, sexes and races, and it is a leading cause of disability in the U.S. An estimated 50 million adults and 300,000 children have arthritic conditions. Women are more prone to this condition and it occurs more frequently with age.

The most common symptoms of arthritis are swelling, pain, stiffness, and decreased range of motion. These symptoms can change from one day to the next. and vary in severity from mild to severe. Although symptoms may be stable for years, they can progress and worsen over time. People with severe arthritis may suffer chronic pain and be unable to complete normal day-to-day tasks, such as walking or climbing stairs.
A person’s joints can change permanently as a result of arthritis. Affected joints may be visible, such as knobbly fingers, but serious damage is often only detected on X-rays. Along with the joints, some types of arthritis affect the heart, eyes, lungs, kidneys, and skin as well.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It is caused by wear-and-tear damage to a joint’s cartilage – the hard, slick covering on the ends of bones where they come together as a joint. Bone ends are cushioned by cartilage, and such cushioning allows nearly frictionless joint motion. However, if the cartilage is damaged enough, there is possible bone grinding directly against bone, resulting in pain and restricted movement. This wear and tear may occur over the years, or it may be accelerated by injury or infection.
Furthermore, osteoarthritis also damages the bones and deteriorates the connecting tissue that holds the joint together. In case of severe cartilage damage, the lining within the joint may swell and become inflamed.

Rheumatoid arthritis

When you have rheumatoid arthritis, the body’s immune system attacks the lining of the joint capsule, the tough membrane engulfing all joint parts, causing the membrane to become swollen and inflamed. As a result of the disease, cartilage and bone may eventually be destroyed.

Risk factors for arthritis include:

  • Obesity. Having excess fat on your body puts a lot of stress on your joints, particularly your knees, hips, and spine. An obese individual is more likely to suffer from arthritis.
  • Previous injury. When a joint is injured when playing sports, it is more likely for that joint to eventually develop arthritis.
  • Family history. Your chances of developing arthritis may be increased if you have parents or siblings who suffer from it.
  • Your sex. The number of people who are diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis is higher among women, whereas people with gout, another form of arthritis, are mainly male.
  • Age. For many forms of arthritis, the risk increases with age.

Arthritis Pain Treatment

Treatment can help patients manage the ailment and get as close to an arthritis cure as possible. Acousana therapy is a highly effective, non-invasive approach to treating mild to severe arthritis with success rates over 86%.

Acousana utilizes patented SoftWave® technology to stimulate your body’s natural healing response by increasing blood flow by up to 300%, quickly reducing inflammation, therefore, providing arthritis relief.

Acousana therapy uses patented electrohydraulic SoftWaves® that are delivered through the skin using ultrasound gel. The SoftWaves trigger a natural biological response which initiates a healing process by increasing blood flow and improving circulation.

The SoftWaves “fool” the body into thinking that “damage” has occurred, when in reality, no damage has taken place. This response initiates your body’s natural self-repair process by reducing inflammation and thereby providing arthritis relief.

Range-of-motion exercises

Exercises like these reduce stiffness in your joints and improve your ability to move them through their full range of motion. The exercises may involve movements such as raising your arms over your head or rolling your shoulders from side to side. In most cases, these exercises can be performed on a daily basis.

Strengthening exercises

Building strong muscles helps protect and support your joints. Strengthening exercises like weight training are a great way to maintain and build muscle strength. Avoid exercising the same muscle group two days in a row. Take at least a day off in between workouts. If your joints are painful or swollen, take an extra day.

You can increase your strength on a three-day-a-week program to jump-start your improvement, but you only need two days a week to maintain your gains.

Aerobic exercise

Fitness can be improved through aerobic or endurance exercises. In addition to increasing cardio health, they can also help control your weight, give you more stamina and energy, and improve your overall well being.

Walking, bicycling, swimming, and using an elliptical machine are low-impact aerobic exercises that are easier on your joints. Start slow, but make it a goal to achieve 150 minutes of moderately intense aerobic exercise every week. If it’s easier on your joints, you can split the time into 10-minute blocks.

A moderate-intensity aerobic exercise program is the most effective and safest if it is done most days of the week, but even an exercise program done just a few times a week is better than no exercise at all. As long as you can carry on a conversation while exercising, you are in the moderate intensity exercise zone.

Case Study - Arthritis

This patient has been suffering from degenerative arthritis starting when she was just 12 years old.

Severe arthritis has kept this woman from enjoying activities she loves such as quilting. Her arthritis restricted her mobility and cause each movement to be very painful particularly in the morning. Her hands were visibly swollen and tender.

After just one 10-minute, hand arthritis treatment, she comments that her hands felt less swollen, more flexible and much less painful. She was able to move her fingers to a degree that she hasn’t been able to do in a long time!

Acousana helped this woman increase the movement in her hand so that she could not only enjoy her hobbies but also get back to simple day-to-day tasks without experiencing pain from arthritis.
