Osteoarthritis: all you need to know about this Rheumatic Disease

Osteoarthritis in Turkey and Istanbul is a widespread disease that affects millions of people around the world (men and women), mainly people between the ages of 40 and 50 years. It is characterized by pain, stiffness, and functional loss. It results from the decay of the cartilage that covers the ends of the bones at the joints.

Osteoarthritis: what are the Types and Causes?

Osteoarthritis affects many of the joints such as knees, feet, ankles, and wrist. There are two types:

  • Primary osteoarthritis: when the person has no obvious symptoms.
  • Secondary osteoarthritis: many of the diseases that affect the joints such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout, lupus, diabetes, injuries, and surgeries belong to secondary osteoarthritis.

Osteoarthritis is a disease linked to several mechanical and genetic factors that are associated with an inflammation. Lack of activity and high weight can also cause osteoarthritis.

How is Osteoarthritis Treated today?

Osteoarthritis is a very painful disease that has a negative impact on daily activities and can in some cases cause disability. It is treated by multiple methods and treatments that depend on the infected area:

  • Drugs: drugs are essential to treat osteoarthritis such as paracetamol, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, intra-articular injections of steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (steroids), or hyaluronic acid.
  • Sports: when pain is severe rest is essential. But, several exercises can treat osteoarthritis such as walking, cycling, and some gymnastic movements. Weight loss can also improve the quality of life of the infected person.
  • Natural remedies: in the majority of cases, drugs are not enough to treat osteoarthritis, but they must be accompanied by natural remedies such as nettles, essential oils, glucosamine, and chondroitin.

Who are the People at Risk?

A number of factors lead to the development of osteoarthritis, such as certain repetitive movements and very mild repetitive trauma.

For example, dance, football, and rugby can provoke hip osteoarthritis. Trapezius exercises induce an osteoarthritis of the spine. Besides, Football, cycling, basketball, swimming, and skiing lead to osteoarthritis of the knee.

Some occupations such as farmers and construction workers are more likely to have hip osteoarthritis because their daily movements can cause premature wear of this joint.

Overweight increases the risk of having osteoarthritis due to increased mechanical stress on the affected joint. The lack of physical activity decreases blood supply to the muscles and causes a change in the cartilage. Having more than one person in the family with osteoarthritis can be a factor. 

What is the Rhizarthrosis?

Rhizarthrosis, also known as thumb osteoarthritis, affects the joint between the metacarpal of the fist and the wrist bone. This joint allows the thumb to perform a series of movements, such as moving up, down or through the palm, as well as the ability to pinch.
