Rheumatoid arthritis is mostly one of the heaviest articulate sicknesses mainly flowing with majority of different lesions. This illness strikes people with any ages but most of all those ones who are over thirty years old. Women become sick on this disease practically in five times more often than male persons. This sickness chiefly strikes about 1-2% of the world population.
Rheumatoid arthritis symptomsare generally differed with symptoms of other articular illnesses. In overwhelming majority of various cases in the beginning of this disease it is chiefly happened some inflammation and intumescence of the spotty-phalangeal articulations of hands’ indicatory and medium fingers. Such inflammation of the spotty-phalangeal joints is often combined with inflammation and tumidity of the radiocarpal articulations. But sometimes these joints become inflamed and they swell in the first case. It is significant that inflammation of articulations under the arthritis pain reliefis practically symmetrical such on right hand as on left hand. And as opposed to rheumatism under this illness the inflammation in these articulations is steadfast, the edema and pain in them are adhered from some months till several years.
Unfortunately there are no “magic tablets” delivered the patients from this illness quickly and forever. But it is necessary to treat this disease constantly. The modern preparation from the rheumatoid arthritis chiefly brake the development of sickness, take off some unpleasant symptoms and also prevent some appearance of different complications. The medicamental agents chiefly used for rheumatoid arthritis treatmentare usually divided into two types – anti-inflammatory drugs (or NSAIDs) and immunomodulatory remedies (or immunomodulators).
The first group chiefly includes such medicamental remedies as Toradol, Movexx Plus, Diclofenac, Aleve, Pentagesic, Feldene, Aceclofenac, Panadol Extra, Celebrex, Motrin and so on. These medicaments take away all inflammations and also diminish the pains.
The second type of anti-rheumatoid remedies includes such drugs as Naprosyn and Indometacin. They suppress some immune reactions and thereby they wrestle with this illness. It is necessary to take into account that the patients must apply all these medications during the prolonged time sometimes the whole life. Also there are some other anti arthritis medicationsas local anesthetics (Emla, Lidocaine, Nimesulide Gel and so on), some non-narcotic analgesics (Zupar, Tylenol, Acetaminophen, etc.) and different other pain-killers (Mobic, Rumalaya, Joynt, Arcoxia and so on). Practically all these medications’ applying calls many nonoperating results so it is chiefly followed to take these meds only under the physician’s controlling. Also these preparations are generally applied for the curing of juvenile arthritis, osteoarthrosis, rheumatism, osteoarthritis, podagra, arthralgia, myalgia, neuralgiaand so on.
Also rheumatoid arthritis treatmentcan include different physical procedures (with the exception of such ones which warm the affected articulation) which give some good effects. Especially low-frequency magnetotherapy and low-speed laser therapy chiefly help people in treating of this illness. If the patient doesn’t feel any improvements the physicians prescribe some surgical operations by demounting of affected tissue in the articulation – it can slow down the sickness’s progressing. Today the majority of such operations are made arthroscopically with using of intra-articular probe.
