We often heard that elders said they are lamed by age.
It is worth noting that this is not an ordinary complaint. Because of the mobility problems, it will become more and more inconvenient for them to go out because of leg pain. They slowly become reluctant to move much and begin a “lonely” old age. Some elderly people are prone to fall and fracture due to inconvenient legs and feet. Over time, pneumonia, bedsores, muscle atrophy and cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases will follow one after another.
They will try tapping, medicinal wine, and even various wild prescriptions to relieve the repeated hip and knee pain when bothered by the leg pain.
However, the pain does not stop easily. Instead, it becomes more severe and frequent with age, until the elderly are confined at home or in bed due to unbearable pain.
In fact, it is not necessary for the old to be able to walk or sleep because of the pain. It is probably a common disease known as Osteoarthrosis (OA), and age has a clear relationship with it, especially after age 50. The number of people bothered with symptomatic OA is also likely to increase due to the obesity epidemic. Fortunately, this disease can be managed and controlled to make the elderly feel more comfortable.
Fighting osteoarthritis is actually beating pain
In short, osteoarthritis means inflammation of the joint. The pain and limited mobility in OA occur as years of repeated stimulation of chronic inflammation. The joints have lost the lubrication and delicate structure formed by long-term evolution. The cartilage that could buffer and lubricate is also worn out with age and overuse. Left rough bones rub painfully against each other, particularly in the hands, spine, knees, and hips.
In this way, unbearable pain is inevitable, and seriously affects the quality of life in older patients. The most important thing that should be solved is the pain it brings. There’s a lot you can do to feel better today like below ways.
-Control weight and reduce joint pressure
If the weight is too large, the overweight part will be doubled, which will put a huge burden on the already fragile knee joint, thereby increasing wear and pain.
Studies have found that a combination of healthy diet and exercise can reduce weight by at least 10%. After 18 months, the pain in the obese affected by osteoarthritis can be reduced by half. In addition to the pressure caused by being overweight, the fat cells will secrete some hormones and inflammatory mediators, which aggravate the inflammation of the small joints of the body.
-Keep warm and regular exercises to enhance joint strength
The knee joint is the coldest part of the body. Although cold does not cause osteoarthritis, it will exacerbate the pain. In cold weather, the temperature of the knee joint will further drop, affecting local blood circulation and metabolism of inflammatory mediators. Elderly people with leg pain must keep their lower limbs warm during the autumn and winter seasons such as blankets and warm pants.
In addition, proper exercise can enhance the support of the muscles around the joints and reduce the burden on the joints. But you must choose the right exercise. Don’t choose some exercise methods that increase the burden on your knees, such as climbing, or going up and down. The knee joints will suffer more damage instead. In contrast, walking, Tai Chi, biking, swimming, yoga, or sitting and raising your legs to move your joints, etc. are better exercise choices for people with osteoarthritis. Water exercise is especially ideal because water can soothe warmth and buoyancy. It’s a gentle way to exercise joints and muscles — plus it fights against resistance to help build muscle strength.
-Use assistive devices to spread the burden of joints
The legs of some elderly people will deform due to osteoarthritis, such as O-shaped legs or X-shaped legs. If it occurs to you, it is a good idea to wear knee pads or medical orthoses to improve joint deformities, and crutches and walkers can also be used to reduce the burden on joints. They are good for alleviating pain and slowing down the development of diseases.
As a result, osteoarthritis is currently one of the most common causes of chronic disability in adults. In any case, osteoarthritis is a problem that every family may encounter now and in the future. The pain it brings needs to be valued and understood by more people, so that it can be relieved and controlled more effectively. It is the key to relieve pain and improve the quality of life. We hope that every elderly person can have a high-quality life in their old age.
What can the healing frequencies do?
If you have osteoarthritis, please don’t continue to suffer. By using the healing sound based on Rife Frequency for osteoarthritis, Cartilage Diseases, Autoimmune Diseases, and Joint Inflammation Remedy, it can greatly assist you to maintain joint function and reduce inflammation of joints, especially in the hands, knees, hips, and spine. Naturally, sound care improves the quality of life and reduces many symptoms, including, pain, swollen joints, stiffness, etc. This natural method of healing sounds is also known to help the body’s self-regulation, especially in immunity to improve muscle strength, flexibility, and also avoid potential harms when symptoms spread to nonjoint structures. You will feel the movable degree of knee improves soon without nasty side effects that medications may have.
