The Types of Arthritis Care

As a fan of sports activities, Budi feels very healthy body. However, recent months he often felt pain in his joint. At first, he just thought the pain was caused by sprains, but it was a sense that never healed. After seeing a doctor, he was informed that the affected joint arthristis. Well, if it has been like this happened, Budi had to do therapy, can not in one treatment will cure the disease.

Heterogeneous disease
You think is too young to get arthritis? ehm, wait a minute. One of the most popular misconception about arthritis is that it is a disease of the elderly. In addition, arthritis is also a heterogeneous disease, it can attack all types of people. Arthritis is characterized by pain, stiffness, and sometimes swelling in the joints; can affect people of all sexes and ages, from children to parents.

Although there are over 100 types of arthritis (like gout, fibromyalgia, and lupus), osteoarthritis is the most common. It is a condition in which there is damage to the cartilage at the tip of the bone joints, among others, in the hands, hips, knees, and back. Without pads, friction occurs between the bone and eventually result in pain, swelling, and even changes in bone shape. Pain and disability caused by arthritis can hinder your daily activities. In addition, fatigue and stress that accompanies it can make you susceptible to other diseases.
Unfortunately, no treatments have been found to cure arthritis in total. Currently, there are limited treatment aims to relieve pain and discomfort, and prevent the possibility of defects. On the other hand, many people turn to a variety of treatments that are also believed to help you from this problem.
AcupunctureThe practice of acupuncture has been practiced for over 2,500 years and has been scientifically proven to relieve the pain of arthristis. Hypodermic needle intended to stimulate acupuncture points along the energy channels, so as to balance the flow and restore health. Acupressure is a technique similar to acupuncture but uses finger pressure instead of needles. By pressing a few points on the body, lactic acid buildup can be avoided, which then helps reduce the pain.
Massage TherapyMassage is an ancient form of pain relief, since more than 3000 years. The massage techniques can help you to relax and let blood flow through your body naturally so as to reduce pain. Reflexology is another type of massage is based on the knowledge that the nervous system of the body organs affected by the nerves in your feet. When pressure is applied to certain areas of the foot, other areas of the body will feel relaxed.
Flotation therapyFlotation is sometimes used to treat arthritis pain. This method requires the patient to float in a pool filled with Epsom salts. Epsom salt has been known by some as a pain reliever. How it work is by stimulating the production of endorphins.
Therapeutic Heating and CoolingHeating treatment method can be a warm bath, using heating on the pain area or using a heating pad. This method is one of the oldest treatments for arthritis. This therapy sends excitation heat to the joints. In addition to heating, there is also a method to compress the joints with cold water. Sensation obtained from both methods were intended to ease the pain. However, keep in mind that do not use a cold compress for more than 20 minutes due to excessive cold can damage the skin.
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)TENS uses electrical stimulation of nerves to block pain signals to the brain. Electrodes are placed on the skin and with a low level, an electric current produces vibration sensation and feeling a bit numb.
DietAdjusting your diet can often help with the symptoms of arthritis. Reduce consumption of animal products, except fish, and increasing fruits, vegetables and grains are very helpful. Meat, especially organ meats, should be avoided because it triggers the buildup of lactic acid in the joints. Types of food from the potatoes, tomatoes, peppers and eggplants are very likely aggravate the symptoms of arthritis, so you should avoid it.
Glucosamine + HD DT: Supplements for Arthritis SufferersGlucosamine sulfate is highly recommended as a nutritional supplement arthristis patients. Glucosamine is made naturally in the body of a compound of sugar (glucose) and plays a major role in the creation and maintenance of cartilage.
The body naturally has its own mechanism to rebuild the joints and connective tissue, make sure your body with optimal levels of essential nutrients that will help to do its job.

Who is Concerned About Health?

Been 3 months and almost 4 months I breathe Rote Ndao District, East Nusa Tenggara Province. Teaching elementary school is my goal coming into the southern districts of Indonesia. A lot of experience I have gained, not only to the extent of education, children or teaching and learning activities. Yes, one of which I have experience about health here. I have its own story about the health of the population of East Rote Rote particular district.
Starting with RI Anniversary celebration was held. 17an celebration in East Rote place very lively. Almost all villages took part in this celebration, both as participants in the race, organizers or spectators. The celebration centered on Pepela 17an, a village with a Muslim majority population. Various competitions are held, such as tug of war, climbing nut, a traditional dance Rote, Jai (a type of poco-poco), long-distance running, hiking, climbing nut, football etc.. The competition followed by all people: elementary school children, junior high school and parents. Yes, of course, my students follow the competitions. Playing on a very solid even we (me, the teachers, students and parents) must be willing to stay at an elementary school near the center of the race. Schedule a solid race and the only participant that's it (understand, we just take a little disciple because these strategies can reduce spending, especially to eat) make children tired. It is also felt by students from other schools. And ... the victim was falling, .... High fever, malaria, sore eyes, cough, food poisoning, collapsed during the race, it all happened during the race week. This condition is exacerbated by the absence of medical teams from health centers.
I go to Rote and comes with a blue bag containing drugs standards are the foundation. With the bag, I try to help people who are sick during the event 17an. Initially I asked, what they feel, then I see the symptoms. With my habit of taking drugs at home, I have applied to them. High heat, I give paracetamol, cough cough medicine that I give them but I forget the brand and give me an ulcer drug when they say it feels pain in the gut. Handling like this I think is not quite right, but thanks to God almost all of them successfully. I gave up when I think there are junior high school boy who seemed affected by malaria. Yes, I became a nurse in imitation Rote. :-)
On day three races were held, one of the disciples, Saldy name, hit a kick in the head when he played ball. Blood was flowing from his head. Incidentally at the time I'm home to change clothes. When I returned to the place to stay, a gentlemen holding a cotton swab on the head Saldy. Once I know that Saldy suffered head injuries from the story that a lot, it took Mr. Coffee. I started the confusion, in the heart ... "you know, there are sick children that he even makes coffee ....". And it turns out the coffee will be used to treat head injuries Saldy. "People here usually if there are injuries, use of coffee just mom ...", said Mr it.
One of the interesting race, race. Every elementary and junior high school send a representative two sons and two daughters to follow the race. The competition was held at 3 pm, the sun still comes up and is very hot, can imagine how hot it is. Race among junior high school students is the opening match. Approximately 2000 meters distance to go. Yet half of the specified range, there are runners who collapsed and again there was no medical team. As a result, the committee should oversee the participant that does not pick fraud, had to intervene. I saw the child, such as difficulty breathing and overheating. And suddenly an old 40's Gentlemen, pour a bottle of water into the boy's body. The child may not get up. I then suggest you should immediately take the boy was taken somewhere more quiet and comfortable, because boy trying to be awakened, but no attempt was transferred from side road. My speech was not followed, even someone say .. "get up too soon, the mother ...". A few seconds later, not far from where I stood, a boy from another school, also collapsed. After the incident, then the first child moved into the room collapsed. I was asked to help revive him. I had come into the room which is certainly more comfortable and quiet. The boy had regained consciousness but could not breath well, so impressed him in pain. When I try to help the child to breathe properly, it appeared that some mothers are busy smearing the child's hands and feet with onions. I started the confusion. To my knowledge these children have difficulty breathing and was not cold, so why should a child wear an onion like colds. I ignore what they do and still leads the child to breathe calmly and simply improved after I left.
A few weeks after the race ended, I was chatting with PTT doctors here. He has served more than 1 year. I told him about the incident giving pembaluran coffee and onion. He just chuckled and he said ... "That's not the worst, even the use of oil and brake fluid to treat injuries from a fall". Indeed, the strange handling. Then I asked some villagers' whether no counseling from physicians and clinics about first aid accidents in the home environment? " and most of the answers, "No son" (no). ok, I immediately thought that the village where I teach is about 17 km from the clinic. Far enough to seek treatment. Moreover, the absence of the condition is exacerbated transportation to health centers. So now who's health care?
