Arthrosis is a rather complex disease characterized by deformation of the cartilage tissue of the joint. The main feature of the disease is that over a long period of time, not only destruction, but also restructuring of the articular ends of the bones occur in the joint.

Unfortunately, arthrosis is a very common disease. About 80% of the world's population suffers from this joint disease. And neither age nor gender of a person plays a role here. With every year of life, the likelihood of joint damage increases.


The main symptom is pain. But she will not tell about the specifics of the disease.

So doctors identify the main symptoms of arthrosis, which include the main one:

  • Painful sensations. They appear mainly during the movement of the diseased joint. At rest, the pain subsides. Sleep goes away without pain, only if the disease begins to progress quickly, then the pain practically does not go away. It is possible to characterize the pain syndrome during periods of exacerbation as a throbbing pain, as with dental problems.
  • Crunchy joints are a sign of arthrosis. The thing is that the soft movement of bones inside the articular bag becomes impossible. Bones rub against each other and this produces a distinctive sound. Yes, crunching can occur in other diseases, and even in healthy joints. But the "crunch of arthrosis" is distinguished by "dryness", the sound seems to muffle something. If there is a crunch, then pains appear.
  • The mobility becomes much less. This is due to the fact that new bone formations with the progression of arthrosis lead to muscle spasm. The joint gap is overgrown, the mobility of the joint is minimized.

To finally get a diagnosis of arthrosis, you should consult a doctor and undergo a full diagnosis, which will make it possible to prescribe the necessary treatment.

Causes of the disease

The main reason for the development of arthrosis of the joints is metabolic disorders in them. There is a loss of elasticity of the cartilage tissue, due to which the bones begin to wear off, from which inflammation and pain begins.

But, a violation of substances is not the only reason for the development of arthrosis of the joints.

This list is supplemented by the following circumstances:

  • Previous injuries. They can be sprains, sprains, fractures.
  • Metabolic disorders - diabetes mellitus and similar diseases.
  • Additional load for the musculoskeletal system in the form of excess weight.
  • Arthritis in its purulent manifestation.
  • Elderly age.
  • Poor quality, malnutrition.
  • Frequent hypothermia of the body.
  • Autoimmune disease.
  • Poisoning is not food, but of a general nature, intoxication.

Also, in addition to the reasons that may appear during a person's life, there are those that can be inherited.

Of these, the most common are distinguished:

  • Arthrosis of the hands and fingers can be inherited, as scientists have found.
  • A disease characterized by a violation of the formation of type 2 collagen fibers. Because of this, the cartilage wears out very quickly. This disease is inherited.
  • Intrauterine violation of the correct development of the musculoskeletal system.

Methods for getting rid of the disease

Medicine suggests different ways to get rid of arthrosis.

But treatment (even at home) should begin as early as possible, because the less deformation of the joint, the easier it is to stop this process, keeping the joints free of pain and severe deformation as long as possible. Different methods should form a complex of treatment, which includes traditional medicine. Joint medical treatment consists of several stages. The first thing a patient needs is pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs. To relieve pain and inflammation, then only you can switch to other methods, which involve the traditional treatment of arthrosis.

Prescribed as a tablet form, and the form of gels or ointments. Usually, an ointment or gel is used at night, for a sound sleep without pain, as well as to relieve inflammation in combination with other drugs.

In the course of treatment, when an exacerbation of arthrosis manifests itself, corticosteroids are used. These are hormonal agents that are injected inside the joint. They relieve inflammation, swelling and pain. Such drugs have a large number of side effects, so they are prescribed only under the supervision of medical personnel.

Treatment of arthrosis with folk remedies

Herbal medicine probably pops up wherever folk medicine is mentioned. Using herbs at home is simple and inexpensive, so this option is quite relevant.

So, recipes using herbs against arthrosis:

  • We buy in the pharmacy collections of chamomile, immortelle, St. John's wort, motherwort, corn. Grind everything together and mix well. Now you need to take 2 tablespoons of the resulting mixture and pour 400 ml of boiling water. Leave to infuse for 2 hours. You need to use it half an hour before breakfast, lunch and dinner. The course is one and a half months.
  • It is necessary to combine the ingredients in a 2: 1: 3 ratio:
  1. raspberry root, nettle, elecampane;
  2. mountain arnica, black elderberry;
  3. rosemary flower.

Pour 400 ml of boiling water over two tablespoons in total, steam in a water bath for about 10 minutes. Drink this broth three times a day half an hour before lunch. Consume for at least a month.

Home treatment also involves the use of various improvised means for compresses, wraps. Folk remedies can relieve night pain, inflammation.

So, treatment with folk remedies can be carried out:

  • use fresh cabbage leaves as a compress. To do this, simply attach them to the sore spot and wrap them, for example, with a bandage. Leave it overnight. Cabbage will relieve pain.
  • Treatment of the fingers of the upper and lower extremities with baths. For this procedure, you can and should use spruce or pine infusions.
  • 100 g of mustard powder and 200 g of sea salt. Mix and pour 30 ml of refined kerosene. Such a solution should be rubbed into the sore spot at night. Use for 2 weeks.

Preventive measures

Treatment with folk or traditional methods will not help if the patient does not follow the doctor's recommendations regarding the elimination of the cause of the disease.

Tablets or solutions will not be able to return the patient to the previous regimen if poor nutrition became one of the causes of the disease, and the patient did nothing about it. That is, in some way, the diet also provides treatment.

Obviously, the load on the joints increases when a person is overweight, which means that it is necessary to get rid of it not only for aesthetic reasons.

The cells of the whole body are nourished due to the normal amount of hemoglobin in the blood, physical activity in the rhythm of life, and a full set of essential microelements in the diet. Accordingly, it is necessary to maximize your way of life to ensure that these criteria are met.

Treatment should begin with prevention. If the patient already feels some discomfort, mild pain, it is worth contacting a doctor. After all, unfortunately, if you start the disease, even with folk remedies, even with medicines, it will be impossible to restore the joint.
