I’m a 39-year-old woman … in the past year or so I have gout. After a couple of times to the doctor only pain relievers. It’s been almost a week that the pain in my left leg, especially in my pelvis is very painful especially if I can walk. I am a bit pessimistic about pain medication but it doesn’t bring significant results. Can gout sufferers like me do physiotherapy?

1 Answer:

Hello Lia, thank you for asking to

Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.

Gout or gout arthritis is a disease of arthritis caused by high blood uric acid levels. Examination to determine the level of uric acid at this time is very fast to find out the results. Normal uric acid levels are:

Female: 2.4–6.0 milligrams per deciliter (mg / dL)
Male: 3,4–7,0 mg / dL

Treatment of gout can be given drugs to reduce symptoms and prevent recurrence. To prevent the recurrence of this disease, you should avoid high purine levels of food, and reduce high-sugar drinks and alcoholic drinks. Patients will also be advised to meet their protein intake by consuming low-fat milk, and to exercise regularly to achieve and maintain ideal body weight.

Besides physiotherapy can be done based on certain conditions that match the indications. One of them is arthritis or inflammation in the joints that is getting worse due to increasing age. But before physiotherapy is done, it is best to consult with a specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation (a physiotherapy doctor), so that the required treatment program can be determined. But for the results, each person will give a different response as well as the results.

That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
