Human Body has more than 20 Joints which are meant to provide maximum range of movement for the body. Knee and Hip Joints help us in walking and sitting. Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist and Finger Joints give range to the movement of our hands for doing all kinds of work including the typing on the keyboard which I am doing just now. With age there is wear and tear in the joints and the density of the bones also goes down which makes the joints weaker. Excess body weight also puts undue pressure on the joints and leads to faster deterioration. Arthritis is a disease which makes the bones brittle and eats away the joints. Two of the biggest reasons for joint pain are osteoarthritis and obesity. Vitamin D acts as Calcium Channel regulator in our body and the deficiency of Vitamin D means that the calcium which is meant for the bones does not reach the right place which leads to weaker bones. X-Ray, Bone Densitometry Scan (DEXA), CT Scan and MRI are all great modalities to find out the health of your bones, ligaments and joints. Blood tests like Serum Calcium and Hydroxy Vitamin D3 are also quite important to know about the shape of the things to come in the future.
If you have reached a stage when the joint pain does not go away even while sleeping then your choices might be limited to Joint Replacement Surgery. However if the treatment is started with the onset of the joint pain then non surgical options are available. Keeping the body weight in check is one of the best ways to avoid faster joint degradation. Reducing one kg of body weight reduces the pressure on your knee joints by around 5 kg. Osteoarthritis cannot be cured or reversed but its progress can slowed through medication and exercise. The joints are not supposed to carry your weight and building strong muscles reduces the weight on the bones and the joints. More than 90% of the Indians are deficient in Vitamin D and taking regular supplements for Vitamin D is unavoidable. This will keep your Vitamin D levels within the normal range and help the bones in becoming stronger. Losing Body Weight through regular exercise and proper healthy diet alongwith Vitamin D Supplements is the only way to keep your joints healthy and pain free. We are always there to add some medication to this lifestyle which will take care of the little pain which has just started to creep into your life.
Dr AK Sethi has more tha 44 years of experience in the field of orthopaedics and is the best doctor for permanent treatment of joint pain without surgery. Our body has more than 20 joints and if you have to change every joint then the cost would be in excess of Rs. 5 Crores. However the cost of doctor consultation and the diagnostic tests for knowing the health of your joints costs peanuts in comparison to this. Moreover the treatment lies in life style modification which needs only a strong motivation and not money to achieve. A healthy lifestyle would save lots of money rather than costing it. You can save on fuel cost if you adopt walking as a way of life. Healthy food is much cheaper than the junk food which we consume so regularly. So next time when you have to pay Rs. 500 - 1000 for either the doctor consult or the physiotherapy session, do not frown as these people are only trying to save your joints which are worth 5 Crores. Do not forget that the artificial can never be as good as the original. For any query please whatsapp at +91-8800188336 or email at email@example.com
