How To Ease The Pain Of Knee Arthritis

Often painful, knee osteoarthritis, is a result of wear and tear of the cartilage; which eventually causes the thigh bone, to rub the tibia, which is a shin bone ... causing friction and pain. If left untreated, knee arthritis not only causes pain, but also causes disability and stiffness, which prevents movement and mobilization. Therefore, incapacity can occur!

Knowing this, what are your thoughts and concerns about this situation? Because my mind wanders around with a few options available - like Knee replacement, I contemplated possible risk factors for my own health ... such as the inability to walk after surgery due to severe pain, other than financial costs. However, if I choose not to undergo surgery, what other options can I emphasize, both beneficial and lasting? The choice is without a doubt, so let me reflect here.

May I consider this procedure?

  1. Microfracture - This helps to restore cartilage - a standard procedure for reconstructing damaged or worn cartilage that causes pain. With micro-fractures, the surgeon drilled holes in the knee, called the patella. Because it causes bleeding in the bone, it stimulates stem cells to create scars like cartilage. As a result, it provides a cushion for the knee joint. Although it is a low risk, it is only a short-term remedy.

  2. Botox - It is used to prevent pain. Surprisingly, Botox although associated with smoothness of wrinkles, is now increasingly being used to reduce pain in knee osteoarthritis. As is well known, injections can restrict the transmission of certain chemical signals that can transmit pain information between the brain and the nerve.

  3. Electro-acupuncture - This helps in reducing pain. The needle is inserted into the eye on the skin attached to a light electric current, which can reach nine volts. With current help, the needle stimulates the release of endorphins and oxytocin, both hormones that reduce pain and stress. After three to six sessions lasted one hour at a time, improvements were felt.

  4. Stem cell implants - This is to grow the cartilage. Stem cells are taken from the patient's marrow - to create the same cartilage as the natural cartilage. Any risk can be considered minimal, since stem cells will not face rejection ... because they are patients themselves.

  5. Platelet-rich plasma - The patient's blood is pulled back into a closed plastic container and rotated inside the machine, to break the components. A protein rich in blood and platelets, called plasma that initiates blood clotting - is then injected into the damaged knee joint. With a strong mix of enzymes and growth factors, plasma helps heal the area.

  6. Exercise - It is one of the best and natural remedies for reducing knee pain, which is much more effective in promoting healing! Strengthening of the quadriceps muscles inside probably , will provide more support for your knee joints. In addition, these exercises include "squats" and "step-ups" as well. In addition, cycling and swimming that do not put pressure on the knees are highly recommended.
