Drugs for joint health: what they are
The musculoskeletal system performs an indispensable function in our body: with its help we can move freely. It is important to maintain the performance of the joint apparatus, pay attention to the slightest changes in health, in time to consult a doctor and conduct treatment.
Pharmacology for the Health Care
Pharmacologists have developed a variety of drugs for the treatment of joints and spine diseases: arthrosis, arthritis, gout, osteochondrosis. Pharmacists offer pharmacy clients various pills, ointments, creams, however, none of the medications can be used without the appointment of a doctor. Consider the most common and well-proven drug groups for the treatment of diseases and spine and joint repair:
- Painkillers and anti-inflammatory
- Muscle relaxants
- Homeopathic preparations
- Analogues of synovial fluid
These drugs are widely used in the treatment of inflammatory and degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletalapparatus, well tolerated by patients and give good results. Before taking any of them, you should consult a doctor for a full-time consultation.
Pain and anti-inflammatory drugs
For the treatment of arthritis, arthritis, which is always accompanied by severe pain, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are used:
These drugs effectively relieve pain syndrome and reduce inflammation in the affected area. NSAIDs should be used with caution to people suffering from gastric ulcer ulcers, gastritis, duodenitis. Taking NSAIDs can trigger an aggravation of these diseases.
The above drugs are symptomatic therapy, they relieve pain and inflammation, while not eliminating the cause of the disease and not treating the affected joints or spine.
Please note: uncontrolled use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can lead to stomach and bowel diseases.
Hormonal drugs significantly reduce or completely eliminate inflammation in the affected joint, and also increase the immune response, which is especially important for rheumatoid arthritis. Preparations of the adrenal cortex are released in the form of tablets, ointments, injections, which allows everyone to choose the most acceptable form of application.
Many drugs are known from the group of corticosteroids, which are successfully used in the treatment of diseases of the joints and spine: hydrocardisone, diprospan, kenalog. Depending on the severity of the disease, the doctor prescribes intraarticular administration of the hormone - injections are made several times a year in conditions of strict asepsis and antiseptics. No hormone drug can be used without the appointment of a doctor in charge, any changes in health should be reported immediately to the doctor.
Pain syndrome in diseases of the musculoskeletal system causes a spasm of muscles, which must be removed for effective treatment. Myorexants block the supply of a nerve impulse to the affected muscle, and it completely relaxes. The most common and effective muscle relaxants are sirdalud and mycosalm. When taking muscle relaxants should avoid driving vehicles, managing complex mechanisms and devices, as drugs weaken focus and concentration.
The hidroprotectors promote the restoration of cartilaginous tissue, nourish and slow down its destruction. The therapeutic effect of the drugs of this group becomes noticeable a few months after application, and their effectiveness is proved only in the early stages of the disease.
Chondroprotectors are prescribed by a course that should be repeated on a regular basis. Produced preparations for oral administration - Structum, Dona, Teraflex, Arthra, as well as chondroprotectors in ampoules for injections: Alflutop, Elbona, Hondrolon, Adgelon.
Homeopathy on the health guard
In recent years, interest in homeopathy has increased - treatment with small but regular doses of the drug that cause a healthy person a condition similar to the disease. When taking homeopathic remedies that contain many times the diluted substances that cause the disease, healing takes place in sick people.
Despite the confrontation between traditional medicine and homeopathy, many homeopathic preparations are successfully used in the treatment of arthritis, arthrosis, osteochondrosis and give good results.
Widely used preparations are Written, Osteochel C, Traumeel C, Objective T, Diskus compositum. They have a minimum of contraindications to use, rarely causes side effects, suitable for children and the elderly. Proper selection of a homeopathic preparation guarantees improvement of the patient's health, pains are reduced significantly, the interval between attacks of the disease is significantly increased.
Despite the safety of homeopathy, treatment with this group of drugs should be started only after consultation with a homeopathic doctor.
Analogues of synovial fluidIn a healthy joint in the cavity there is a synovial fluid that serves as a lubricant for the surfaces of cartilages and bones, making the glide smooth and painless when moving. When the amount of synovial fluid decreases or changes its chemical composition, a person experiences pain when moving.
With such conditions, a drug is introduced into the joint bag, which assumes the role of the synovial fluid: Ostenil, Fermatron, Synvisc, Synocrome, Hyalux. The introduction of preparations - prostheses of synovial fluid is carried out in conditions of complete aseptic and antiseptic, since any violation of the integrity of the skin can lead to infection.
For any symptoms of musculoskeletal disorders: pain, swelling, redness of the joint, restriction in movement, unpleasant sensations in the lumbar region, neck, you should consult your doctor for advice and advice on treatment. No medication, even if it has been successfully used in the past, can not be used without the appointment of a doctor.

Basic principles of arthritis treatment + video!
Arthritis medication, homeopathy, physiotherapy
In brief about the types and symptoms of arthritis
, there are several different types and forms of arthritis
Arthritis can have a metabolic, infectious-allergic, dystrophic, traumatic, reactive origin. The main clinical symptomatology of arthritis consists of: arthralgia( joint pain), hyperemia( edema, swelling, redness, local increase in joint temperature), dysfunction of the joint, deformation.
Arthritis is not without reason considered a serious problem, because it is characterized by a protracted nature, prone to relapse, and can lead to disability of the person and loss of his working capacity.
Treatment can be prescribed correctly only by putting a correct and accurate diagnosis. Therefore, it is worth recalling the variety of forms of this disease.
Types of arthritis
A group of arthritis is very extensive, but it can be divided into inflammatory and degenerative.
Inflammatory: rheumatoid, reactive, infectious arthritis, gout. In these diseases, the internal surface of the synovial membrane of the joint is affected.
Degenerative: osteoarthritis, traumatic arthritis. They are accompanied by damage to the articular surface of the cartilage itself.
The course of the disease: acute, subacute, chronic.
The types of inflammation in arthritis are serous( there is an exudate of inflammatory exudate in the joint, synovitis), serous-fibrinous( exudate precipitates fibrinous sediment - more severe), purulent( the most serious course, the entire bag,phlegmon capsule joint).
Features of individual forms of arthritis
joint deterioration is the main symptom of arthritis
Some types of arthritis are characterized by the defeat of certain joint groups. With rheumatoid arthritis, this is a symmetrical change in the joints of the hands, feet. Psoriatic arthritis is characterized by the defeat of the distal joints on the hands and feet, and Bekhterev's disease - the joints of the spine, sacroiliac joint.
Symptoms of arthritis: pain in joints of undulating character;swelling, swelling;restriction of movements in the joint, stiffness in it;fever, chills;the change in the shape of the joint and the appearance of the skin above it - the later symptoms, characteristic of the long course of the disease.
Basic principles for the treatment of joint inflammation( arthritis)
1. Treatment of the causes of arthritis
Elimination of the cause of this disease is an obligatory component of the treatment of joint arthritis - infectious, allergic, gouty.
2. Pathogenetic therapy of arthritis
Treatment should be comprehensive and aimed not only at the causes of the disease, but also some of its development mechanisms.
treatment of arthritis should be performed only by the doctor
Pathogenetic therapy of arthritis is directed to:
- normalization of metabolism, balance of minerals and vitamins, exposure to the focus of infection, that is, on the correction of immunological and general reactivity of a person;
- decreased intensity or complete elimination of local and general inflammation( medication, physiotherapy, balneotherapy);
- rehabilitation - restoration of joint function( massage, exercise therapy, reflexology, acupuncture and much more);
- therapy of the underlying disease, if arthritis only accompanies some other disease.
The peculiarity of the treatment of arthritis is the duration, phasing and complexity. This is always the maximum individual treatment plan, selected by a qualified specialist, based on the group, the form of the disease, the nature of its course, the duration of life, the presence of complications, taking into account the assessment of the general condition of the person and the tolerability of various drugs.
Medical treatment of arthritis
This section will list the main groups of drugs, the names of some of them, but only for reference.
Categorically you are warned: the independent use of any medicine for arthritis without proper examination, the delivery of tests and doctor's appointment can be dangerous to your health!
NSAIDs( non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs)
diclofenac helps to relieve pain in joints
This group of drugs has a pronounced anti-inflammatory effect, as well as the ability to reduce vascular permeability( this reduces swelling), and anesthetize.
This group includes drugs such as diclofenac, ibuprofen, ketoprofen, ketorolac, nimesulide, etc. You can find out more about them in an article devoted entirely to anti-inflammatory drugs.
Pain medications for external use
This group of medicines is prescribed against the pain syndrome in diseases of the musculoskeletal system. They are applied topically - on the skin above the joint. The main advantage of this method of application is that the components of the drug are absorbed directly into the area of the affected tissues, bypassing the path through the gastrointestinal tract. This reduces the number of side effects and increases the concentration of the active substance at the destination.
Contraindications: intolerance of components and skin damage.
Examples of such drugs: dolgite-cream, apizatron, butadione, benguin, voltaren, fastem, emulgel, diclofenac acry-ointment, etc. To find out more about such gels and balms you can see in the article "Ointments for the treatment of joints".
muscle relaxants relieve muscle spasms
This group of drugs relaxes the musculature, which strains with a pain syndrome. Such a contraction of muscles is a very common protective reflex, which limits mobility in the affected joint, reduces the range of movements in it. When the painful attack is prolonged, the muscles can not stop the spasm, because of what they begin to hurt themselves with a long strain. Muscle relaxants relax muscles, increase mobility in the joint, and relieve pain.
Examples of drugs: sirdalud, midokalm, baclofen.
Why can not I endure the pain in this case: spasmodic muscle tissue does not get enough nutrition, oxygen, from them poorly derived metabolic products - there is pain already in the muscle, which, in turn, increases spasm. A vicious circle is formed.
Antifungal drugs do not give salts of uric acid to form in the blood serum, and also to fall out into the joint cavity.
Preparations: milurite, allomarone, allopurinol.
Bone mineralization preparations are a means of restoring normal mineral metabolism of bone tissue. An inadequate human diet often puts an urgent need for the appointment of a mineral and vitamin supplements by the doctor. The most commonly prescribed are combined preparations such as Berocca with calcium and magnesium, Vitrum calcium, Biovital for children, Materna, Teravit, Kalcimin and many others.
homeopathy is another way to combat arthritis
As practice has shown, the competent appointment, combination and use of the drugs of this group contributes to a significant improvement in the condition of patients with arthritis.
Remissions are lengthening, pain attacks become less intense.
These drugs have almost no contraindications, it can still cause some side effects, so avoid self-medication even with homeopathy!
Preparations: Recenned, Traumeel C, Target T, Osteochel C, etc.
Physiotherapy and the treatment of labor
Arthritis is characterized by the fact that in the absence of movement in the patient's joint, the pain syndrome only increases, so reducing the load on it is strictly contraindicated. Turning to a physiotherapist, you will learn effective methods of physical analgesia. You can return the previous amplitude of movements in the joint, quickly rehabilitate after surgery, prosthetics or injuries.
arthroscopy of the joint
When the damage to some or all of the joint tissues can not be cured by pills, injections, ointments or physiotherapy, various surgical methods are used:
- arthroscopic synovectomy - removal of the synovial membrane fragment;
- cartilage transplantation - from a healthy joint is taken cartilaginous tissue, grown in laboratory conditions and inserted into a damaged joint;
- replacement of joint with prosthesis;
- implantation of a metal spacer into the joint, imitating the joint surface.
Invasive methods of treatment of arthritis also include punctures and rinsing of the joint cavity with various drugs.
Alternative medicine has huge resources. Recipes of traditional medicine often have a rational grain and are able to well affect the patient's condition as part of a comprehensive treatment. But which methods and methods are more effective, contain one or another component that is missing in treatment, only a good doctor can assess.
Therefore, before using folk methods of treating arthritis, be sure to discuss them with your doctor. And you can find out more in detail about these methods of treatment in the article Treatment of acute / chronic inflammation of the joints( arthritis) with folk remedies.
Homeopathy for knee arthrosis
Many people suffer from arthrosis of the knee joint( gonarthrosis) in the world. Traditional medicine can not overcome this disease, but the use of medicines and non-pharmacological agents helps to slow the progress of the disease and eliminate the pain caused by it. A completely different approach to the treatment of arthrosis offers alternative medicine - homeopathy. It is aimed at restoring the joint by improving the condition of the whole organism. How to cure gonarthrosis with homeopathic remedies?
Advantages of homeopathy treatment
At the heart of treatment with the help of homeopathy are several principles. The main one is that to eliminate the disease take an insignificant dose of a substance that can cause the same disease in a healthy person. So, for the removal of edema used drugs based on bee venom, which is able to retain fluid in the body. The effectiveness of homeopathic remedies is confirmed by many people who, thanks to these drugs, were able to recover from their ailment.
The advantages of homeopathy treatment are as follows:
- This alternative therapy eliminates symptoms rather than improves the condition of the diseased organ, treats the entire body and even the soul. The goal of homeopathic treatment is the resumption of the self-regulating processes of the organism, the normalization of the work of all its systems and organs. As a result, biological mechanisms are launched, leading to the elimination of the cause of the disease itself and the improvement of the health of the entire body.
- Homeopathic remedies are safe because they are made from natural ingredients. They are non-toxic and do not cause serious side effects, allergies.
- Treating homeopathy is cheaper than medication.
- When selecting drugs and doses for treatment, an individual approach is used.
- Homeopathic medicines work well with traditional therapy, improving its effectiveness, alleviating the side effects of using medications.
Mechanism of action of homeopathic remedies
In the preparation of homeopathic remedies, a special technology is used - the starting substance / drug is diluted in water to an insignificantly low concentration, while the liquid is shaken repeatedly. As a result of this process, information from the diluted drug is transferred to the elements of the structure of the liquid by changing the frequency of its oscillations.
In other words, water remembers the properties of a soluble object in it. Until the end, the mechanism of the action of homeopathic preparations on the human body has not been studied. But there is a theory that when such a substance gets into the body, internal organs and systems begin to resist small doses of the substance provoking the disease. So the body learns to fight the disease and starts a slow recovery process.

Feedback on results
Arina, 40 years old: My mother was constantly tormented by severe pains in her knees due to arthrosis of the joint. I had Traumeel C ointment, which I used with lactose. Mom began to use it for rubbing joints. I was surprised when a few days after the application, the mother said that she no longer feels the pain. The only drawback of this drug - it is not cheap.

What is the main problem? The main problem of arthrosis is that it refers to irreversible diseases, which are almost impossible to cure. This disease affects the cartilaginous tissue, accompanied by a decrease in activity, difficulty in movement and strong pain. In especially neglected cases, the entire joint can be affected, which makes it practically impossible to rehabilitate the patient and significantly limits his mobility. If you find the first symptoms, you can delay the onset of the disease and prolong the youth of your body. Here the main thing is timely access to a specialist, setting the right diagnosis and an effective treatment regimen with the help of modern medications. The usual treatment for arthrosis - how safe is it? For the treatment of arthrosis, non-steroidal drugs are most often used, which are not so harmless and have a number of side effects. As an adjunct to drug treatment, patients are recommended to limit physical activity and physical activity, attend physical therapy classes and physiotherapy sessions. Often, such therapy is not only impossible in our real life, but also does not give a proper result. The use of drugs that help restore cartilaginous tissue, carries a certain threat to the health of the patient, especially if used for a long time. Special gels and ointments help to relieve pain symptoms only, and then for a certain period of time. However, a patient who suffers from severe pain and restricted mobility of the affected joint requires qualified help to eliminate the prompt elimination of complaints, and even better, the very causes of the disease. Therefore, increasingly these patients are turning to homeopathy
