Aids To Osteoarthritis?
hello, my mother is undergoing treatment for osteoarthritis, and my mother has difficulty walking she says it hurts, are there any tools that can be used to reduce pressure in the knee joints. if there is what it’s called if I want to buy at an online shop?, thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Osteoarthritis is a condition in which inflammation of the bones and joints occurs due to various factors, such as aging, obesity or overweight, history of injury to related parts, heredity and the impact of certain activities or occupations. This condition causes complaints in the form of pain, stiffness and swelling in the joints which makes it difficult for patients to move normally.
Regarding your question, among the ways that can be done to make osteoarthritis sufferers feel comfortable is to give medicines in the form of pain relief and inflammation. If the drug received or prescribed for your mother so far has not been able to reduce the pain, then tell the doctor who treats it, so that further action is taken in the form of drug administration that has a stronger effect. This is important because there are indeed levels in the administration of pain medications, and it cannot be the most powerful but gradual. If your mother still feels pain, it is not impossible that the drugs used are still of low strength.
Then for tools that can be given include footwear in the form of sandals or shoes that have been designed so that they are soft when stepped on, use crutches or sticks to share the pressure on the knees and feet, or if it is very painful and makes it difficult to walk using a cane, can use a wheelchair.
However, we suggest that you should discuss this with the orthopedist who has been caring for your mother. Because do not let the use of this tool be an adaptation response to disease, when in fact the condition can still be cured. By discussing it directly with the doctor, it can be determined what steps and healing targets your mother will go through, and what tools are most appropriate for her. In the meantime, make sure your mother's ideal body weight, and take medication regularly. So, hopefully answering your question.
