We often hear from our elders that age has crippled them.
It is worth noting that this is not an ordinary complaint. Because of mobility problems, it will become more and more inconvenient for them to go out because of leg pain. They may slowly become more reluctant to move much and begin a "lonely" old age. Some elderly people are prone to falls and fractures due to crippled legs and feet. Over time, pneumonia, bedsores, muscle atrophy and cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases will follow, one after another.
They may try tapping, medicinal wine, and even various wild prescriptions to relieve their chronic hip, leg and knee pain.
However, the pain does not go away 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 unable to walk or sleep because of pain. This pain and immobility is probably caused by 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 joint mobility in OA occurs due to years of repeated stimulation of chronic inflammation. The joints have lost its lubrication and delicate structure that had been formed by long-term evolution. The cartilage that could buffer and lubricate is also worn out with age and overuse. Rough bones endings are left to rub painfully against each other at the joints, particularly in the hands, spine, knees, and hips.
Because of joint degeneration, unbearable pain is inevitable, and this seriously affects the quality of life in older patients. The most important thing to overcome and live with OA is to solve the symptom of pain. There's a lot you can do to feel better today by following the tips below:
-Controlling weight to reduce joint pressure
If your weight is too heavy, there will be a huge burden placed on the already fragile knee joint, therefore increasing wear and pain.
Studies have found that a combination of a healthy diet and exercise can reduce weight by at least 10%. After 18 months, the pain experienced by obese OA sufferers can be reduced by half. In addition to the pressure caused by being overweight, the fat cells will secrete hormones and inflammatory mediators, which aggravate the inflammation of the small joints in the body.
-Keep warm and regularly exercise 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 using blankets and wearing 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 is soothing and provides warmth and buoyancy. It's a gentle way to exercise joints and muscles -- plus water resistance is a gentle way to exercise using resistance to help build muscle strength.
-Use assistive devices to spread the burden of joints
The legs of some elderly people may become deformed due to osteoarthritis, such as O-shaped legs or X-shaped legs. If it occurs to you, it’s 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.
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 recognized and understood by more people, so that it can be relieved and controlled more effectively. Relieving pain is the key to improving the quality of life for those living with OA. 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, 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 with immunity to improve muscle strength, flexibility, and also avoid potential harm when symptoms spread to non-joint structures. You will feel the degree of joint mobility of your knees improve soon, without nasty side effects that medications may have.
