What types of arthritis are?
characteristic feature of the disease that occurs defeat multiple joints. This is not necessarily simultaneous destruction of various joints (usually - symmetric), there is another 'scenario' - the joints will be "drawn" slowly, almost at random.It is because of this feature of the disease, and has been called "arthritis", ie. E. Arthritis, which develops in several joints.
Arthritis is a disease of the inflammatory nature of the joint, which leads to the defeat of the joint membranes.It should be noted that the causes of arthritis can be quite a lot on this basis allocate certain types
other words, the symptoms of arthritis is almost always the same, but its causes may be different. This is the cause of the disease depends on the how to treat arthritis.
The following types of the disease:
- rheumatoid under which most often affects the medium and large joints;
- rheumatoid under which the cause of disturbances in the cartilage are immune changes;
- crystal, the cause of which is a metabolic disorder;
- infectious arthritis develops after serious infections, it exists as an infectious-allergic subspecies;
- psoriatic - usually develops in young people some time after the skin lesions of psoriasis;
- jet, the cause of which is a chlamydial infection.
What are the symptoms of this disease?
manifestations of arthritis in many respects depend on what kind of disease.For example, in the form of rheumatic diseases often observed prompt "throwing of" inflammatory process from one to the other joint.Because the unofficial name of the disease was the expression "volatile rheumatism", but much earlier than the official name of the disease was "flying gout."Development of the disease is usually accompanied by sharp pains, swollen joints and begin to deform, their mobility is severely restricted.In this case, the joints most often affected symmetrically.
rheumatoid form of the disease at an early stage the pain is much less, and swelling of the joints is almost invisible.Also, patients often appears meteozavisimost.With the progression of the disease the pain intensifies, there are neurological symptoms - burning sensation, numbness, chilliness.Also, there is stiffness in the joints in the morning, and the movement led to its strengthening.The disease can affect the whole body, leading to the development of some diseases of other organs.This type of arthritis is also characterized by symmetry.
Infectious arthritis of the knee and shoulder joint - frequent consequence of some serious diseases - brucellosis, syphilis, gonorrhea, tuberculosis, scarlet fever, dysentery, and even complex forms of influenza.In this case, the joints swell and become painful, limited mobility.But in addressing the main diseases such arthritis quickly.
crystalline form of exchange or polyarthritis characterized by the appearance in the articular cartilage of salt deposits, because of which the inner surface of the joint becomes rough and eventually covered with cracks.This "salt deposits" (which in fact is simply the destruction of cartilage membranes) at first imperceptibly, but later this arthritis leads to severe and very severe pain.This form of arthritis mainly affects the small joints that turn red and swell.Also appear on the skin "tophi" - small arthritic nodules, because some of this form of the disease called "nodular polyarthritis", although this is wrong.
What preventive measures exist?
polyarthritis is a complex disease that must be treated for a long time, while it is not the best way affects the comfort of human life, because the movement in some joints severely limited.Recovery depends on the patient, who must understand that his body has its limits, you need to know and take them.The appearance of symptoms of the disease is a serious reason to review and change some of their habits.
basis of this disease - an unhealthy diet.Sugar, fatty foods, spices, tobacco, alcohol, foods that are rich in starch, physical overload - all this leads to the accumulation of harmful and toxic substances.This last is the accumulation of years.
For this reason diet for arthritis is one of the best methods of prevention of the disease. Also, it is necessary and in the treatment process as the only way possible to fully saturate the body with all the necessary vitamins and trace elements.
How to cure a disease?
polyarthritis of the joints characterized by the fact that it depends entirely on the cause of its appearance, because treatment of folk remedies at home are rarely (if not to say - almost never) is effective.The problem is that the first thing should be to eliminate the cause of the illness, and an ordinary person almost never be able to understand what form of the disease he faced and how to fight it. In this regard, the best option would be to immediately go to the doctor, undergo a full examination and later to follow all the recommendations of experts. But these recommendations are usually normalized not only the medication, but also limit the bad habits, require a certain diet and so on. D.
arthritis treatment involves first the removal of the causes of its development.For example, reactive and infectious polyarthritis intended to include treatment of antibiotics, which must cope with the focus of infection.Diseases of this kind after the elimination of the causes of their development are usually pretty quickly with minimal treatment.Crystal (exchange) type of the disease involves the restoration of normal metabolism, and thus in the course of treatment play an important role diet, vitamins and exercise therapy.
first drug, which begins with drug treatment - NSAIDs.Some people mistakenly think that this is a cure for arthritis, but it is not so - NSAIDs are designed simply to reduce inflammation and remove the pain.These drugs are good that they act quickly and effectively, but their effect is temporary and ends at the end of treatment.
Have NSAIDs and serious shortcomings - long intake leads to an extremely unpleasant side effects from the digestive system.Furthermore, it was shown that these drugs have a negative effect and contribute to the destruction of cartilage in the joints.
In those forms of arthritis, which are caused by autoimmune disorders (systemic lupus erythematosus, for example) applied corticosteroids.They relieve pain and other symptoms of the disease more effectively than NSAIDs but also cause considerable damage to the body.
When rheumatoid arthritis is prescribed anti-rheumatic drugs, which allow you to change for most diseases of this kind.Usually they are assigned simultaneously with NSAIDs and corticosteroids, as the effect of the use of basic drugs appears only a half or two months.
What are some traditional recipes to treat the disease?
course, there are a number of "grandmother's recipes" that are to a greater or lesser extent, help people.But such prescriptions should be used only after consultation with your doctor, because these methods are not able to completely get rid of the disease, most of them based on the effect of conventional heating, so for a while the pain recedes.In the course of the disease itself such funds rarely have at least some influence, but it can act as support.
