Solution To Overcome Arthritis In Mothers Aged 66 Years?
sorry I want to ask if grade 2 arthritis suffered by my mother aged 66 years can not be cured without surgery mksh
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The term arthritis or arthritis, actually refers to a variety of conditions that occur when there is an inflammatory process that is characterized by swelling, pain, redness, warmth and other discomfort in the joints of the body. Specifically, arthritis is extensive and has many types, such as:
And there are many more types including immune system disorders and infections, so we can't know which arthritis you actually mean. For this question, we suspect that what you mean is arthritis in the form of osteoarthritis because it is quite often and one that has a classification of degrees. You can clarify with your mother's doctor, and if this is not what you mean, we apologize in advance and please make a new question.
Osteoarthritis (OA) occurs because there is cartilage damage that occurs slowly. The reason could be due to age, female sex, overweight, and injury to the joints. OA has 5 degrees or stages, starting from 0, 1, 2, 3 and 4, with 0 being said to be "normal" and 4 being the most severe stages "
Regarding your question, the stage that requires surgery or surgery is actually the 4th stage, so if your mother is at stage 2, of course it can be handled without surgery. We say 'dealt with' because this condition is indeed incurable. All treatment is only used to relieve symptoms. In the second stage, the treatment given is to lose weight when overweight, do aerobic exercise according to ability, avoid activities that increase the burden on the joints such as squatting, kneeling, or jumping, warm compresses and consumption of painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs.
Our advice, because we also do not know for sure whether this is really a disease that your mother is suffering from, you should check your mother at another orthopedist to get a second opinion. If the doctor also recommends surgery without knowing your mother's doctor's opinion beforehand, it means that your mother really needs surgery. So, hopefully answering your question.
