Your doctor has prescribed OrthoScot for pain relief against Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Gout and Muscular pain.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease which occurs when a person’s immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissues in the joints. In Osteoarthritis, the protective cartilage gradually wears down as the bones at the joints begin to scrape against one another due to repetitive movements and unnecessary pressure on joints. Rheumatoid arthritis occurs in smaller joints of the body, while Osteoarthritis is seen in bigger joints like hip and knee joints.
Some of the symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis are fatigue, fever, loss of appetite, rheumatoid nodules, weight loss and inflammation in other areas such as the eyes and lungs.
Those suffering from Osteoarthritis can develop bone spurs or other bone abnormalities.
Treatment for Rheumatoid and Osteoarthritis includes medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to reduce inflammation, alleviate pain and stiffness in the joints and improve their range of motion. Physiotherapy may also be suggested to keep the joints flexible and help improve a person’s mobility.
Gout is a form of arthritis causing pain and discomfort in the joints. Gout is also an inflammatory disorder where a person develops high levels of uric acid in their blood. These uric acid crystals can deposit in the synovial tissues, especially in the hands, feet, and elbows. A typical gout attack is characterized by the sudden and severe pain, swelling and redness in a joint. Patients experience gout commonly in the big toe and also in their ankles, fingers, elbows or wrists.
An acute gout attack will generally reach its peak 12-24 hours after the onset of pain. Treatments for gout include taking medications to reduce the amount of uric acid in the body, reduce acute gout inflammation or for the removal of uric acid. Dietary changes such as avoiding foods and drinks known to cause gout are also recommended.
Muscle cramp or muscle spasm is an involuntary contraction of a muscle. Muscle spasms occur suddenly, usually resolve quickly, and are often painful. Muscle cramps happen due to muscle fatigue, dehydration and depletion of electrolytes. It also occurs if the muscle has been previously injured or strained, overstretched or if it has been held in the same position for a prolonged period of time. The muscle cell may run out of energy and fluid leading to a forceful contraction. Muscle spasms occur suddenly, are usually short-lived and often painful.
The initial treatment is to gently stretch the muscle and resolve the acute situation. For treating muscles that have been damaged or strained, medications may be required for pain relief like anti-inflammatories, narcotics and muscle relaxants.
