Treatment of joint diseases

The diseases of joints, ligaments and muscles are a very widespread phenomenon, which significantly limits mobility and makes the daily life difficult. Though the aged people more often complain about the joint diseases, young people are not insured against them either. They most often face problems with shoulder, knee and hip joints. In case of problems with joints, it is important to timely visit the doctor, as the severe diseases can cause complications and disability.

SYMPTOMS AND CAUSES OF JOINT DISEASES

The joint diseases are divided into two main groups: arthritis (inflammation of joints) and arthrosis (wear and tear of joints). The patients usually complain about the bursitis (accumulation of fluid in joints) and gout (disease of joints, caused by the metabolic disorder).

The different reasons can become the cause of joint diseases:

  • infections;
  • traumas;
  • excessive physical exertion;
  • hereditary predisposition;
  • hypothermia;
  • complications after other diseases of the locomotor apparatus.

The signs of sore joints:

  • pain during the physical stress, after it or at rest;
  • deformation of small wrist joints;
  • difficulty in mobility;
  • redness, swelling;
  • high temperature;
  • crepitus when moving.

METHODS OF TREATMENT OF JOINT DISEASES  

The treatment of joints starts from the examination by the doctor, who listens to complaints and replies to patient’s questions, after which, if necessary he orders the examinations, such as blood test, rheumatoid tests, ultrasounds of the joint and CT scan. Based on the results of performed examinations, the doctor determines the method of treatment and necessary medications. The clinic also uses the cutting-edge method of treatment of chronic problems with joints – shockwave therapy. It is quite risky to self-medicate the diseases of joints.

As per statistics, about 40% of the humankind is susceptible to joint diseases. In order to minimize the risk of joint diseases, it is important to avoid strenuous physical activities, but at the same time to move a lot and do physical exercises. It is also important to timely visit the doctor with traumas of the joints and ligaments, as the undertreated injuries also often cause complications.

18-12-2014 Обратился в клинику после длительного бронхита и осложненного ОРВ, перед этим меня лечили антибиотиками в обычной поликлинике, но вылечить окончательно не могли. Я рад, что обратился в клинику и меня поставили на ноги за 1 неделю.Проходил лечение на дневном стационаре.Хочу отметить внимательность обслуживающего персонала, индивидуальный подход и при этом демократичность цен.
Спасибо!

Благодарим за Ваш запрос. В ближайшее время менеджер свяжется с вами
