Osteoarthritis Pain Information
Overview: It is estimated that over 20 million Americans suffer with symptomatic osteoarthritis or OA, more commonly known as degenerative joint disease (DJD). Osteoarthritis commonly accompanies the aging process. In fact, over 80 million Americans have degenerative changes of the joints and bones. Fortunately, the majority of these individuals are not symptomatic. Even though osteoarthritis seems like a normal process of aging, osteoarthritis is actually a medical condition that results in a deterioration of the cartilage of the joints and the bones underneath and around the joints and a decrease of the fluid in the joints, known as synovial fluid. The early changes of osteoarthritis typically appear in the middle ages and progress into the senior years. The majority of individuals over 70 experience at least some pain or limitations and many seniors suffer severe pain and disability as a result of osteoarthritis.
As the disease progresses the cartilage of the joints may be completely worn away and the bones of the joints may become grossly deformed. With lack of activity, the ligaments and muscles around the joints atrophy, or diminish in size and strength. The joints at the hands, particularly at base of the thumb, are commonly involved with stiffness, pain, and enlargement of the joints. Osteoarthritis also develops in the shoulders, the joints and bones of the feet, and the joints and bones of the neck, or cervical spine, and back, or lumbar spine. The weigh-bearing joints of the hips and knees are frequently affected. While the cause of osteoarthritis is not understood, the risk of developing osteoarthritis seems to increase based on family history of osteoarthritis, excessive wear and tear on the joints, previous injuries to the joints, obesity, and smoking.
Treatments for Osteoarthritis Pain
The usual is often too much, frequently too dangerous; yet, rarely enough
While there is still no cure for osteoarthritis, advances have been made with surgical joint replacement, especially of the hips and knees. Still, the majority of osteoarthritis victims still suffer with the pain and limitations caused by this disease. The standard treatments for pain, such as prescription narcotic and non-narcotic medications are frequently ineffective and have serious side effects, such as sedation, nausea, and addiction. Extended use of some over-the counter (OTC) medications such as ibuprofen, naproxen, and acetaminophen may even result in stomach ulcers, kidney failure, heart failure, and liver failure. Many sufferers with osteoarthritis often search for alternative solutions to the usual over-the-counter and prescription medications. The disabling effects of osteoarthritis may be reduced by weight reduction, discontinuing smoking, muscle strengthening, stretching exercises, proper diet, and vitamin supplements such as glucosamine, chondroitin, and omega 3 fatty acids. Victims of osteoarthritis should always seek the evaluation and care of a qualified physician for the best and most current treatment options for osteoarthritis.
Sudden severe pain, especially in the chest, arms, or head, pain associated with fever, numbness or weakness, or pain in any area of the body that does not resolve after a couple of weeks, should always be evaluated by a physician to be certain that other medical conditions, including heart disease, stroke, infections, or even cancer is not the underlying cause of pain.
