What do you know about your joints?

Simply speaking, a joint is a connection between two bone ends. These bone ends are wrapped by a layer called cartilage. Cartilage functions as a shock absorber and provide lubrication for movement.

There is also a container surrounding the two bone ends. It is called a joint capsule. Inside the joint capsule is a very important lubricating fluid for our joint called synovium fluid. Beside synovium fluid, there exists all sorts of strings which are attached to the joint to hold it together. These are called tendons or ligaments.


So, a joint is where two bone ends meet together. Like a machine, to move around, it needs supports –a cushion layer, lubrication and some ‘gears’. Over time these parts can break down and cause problems, and repairs are necessary.

02. Treatments

Common ways to deal with joint pain.

  • Traditional
  • Alternative

Great efforts are being put into forming treatment that treat problems at the root, however, many challenges remain. Arthritis conditions still remain one of the biggest medical and healthcare challenge to overcome.  Some popular mainstream treatment includes joint injection, medication drugs and biological drugs. These have serious and unpredictable side effects and requires professional consultation before taking on. Treatment with these methods are often very expensive. 


It is a common practice for doctors to prescribe pharmaceutical drugs for joint pain. These drugs while certainly effective, they can have serious side effects. So, it is also a growing trend for doctors to prescribe nutraceuticals products to limit the use of drugs. For example, prescribing omega-3s can reduce the dosage of Ibuprofen. 

A considerable number of joint pain sufferers find non-medication and non-traditional methods very beneficial. Alternative pain treatment methods are usually in form of nerve calm and physical therapy. Biological substances such as essential oils and food-related mixture is also used by many. Always be cautious when dealing with alternative therapies and consult with a professional. 


Acupuncture

Fine needles inserted into skin to release blocked energy.A numerous number of people has found this treatment helpful and it isquite prevalent in Asian countries.


Chiropractic   

A form of physical therapy. Mainly to alleviate dislocation,deformation and injuries. The principle behind chiropractic is to relieve nervepressure in the spine and joint to relieve pain and restore functionalities.


Other Methods

Aromatherapy, Homeopathy and Massage.
