Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA pain) : Types of treatments
Physiotherapy can relieve pain and reduce inflammation. It can also help patients with rheumatoid arthritis maintain joint structure and function. Certain types of treatment are used to counteract the specific effects of rheumatoid arthritis:
Using heat or cold can reduce joint pain or stiffness. Use ultrasound waves to help reduce inflammation around the tendon sheath (tenosynovitis). Active and passive exercises to improve and maintain joint range of motion. Local rest and splints to reduce joint pain. Improving the function of finger splints and other assistive devices to prevent deformity and improve hand function. Relaxation techniques to reduce secondary muscle spasm Acupuncture Chiropractic Medicine Electrotherapy Massage Therapy
Oxygen-ozone therapy is a minimally invasive treatment for rheumatoid arthritis that uses the biochemical properties of a mixture of oxygen and ozone gas.
Ozone improves blood circulation. This is done by increasing the fluidity of the bloodstream as a fluid. This effect causes more of the hemoglobin-carrying oxygen to reach the capillaries, and eventually the cells receive more of the oxygen they need. Many patients with chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis have circulatory problems.
Another benefit of ozone therapy in rheumatic diseases is often seen in mood disorders, fatigue, depression, which chronic fatigue often leads to the patient complaining. There is a wide range of rheumatic drugs with severe side effects. These side effects mainly affect the kidneys and liver. The high volume of long-term damage to the kidneys and liver in patients taking these drugs confirms the protective effects of ozone therapy. People with rheumatic diseases can use ozone therapy periodically by consulting their doctor.
