Different Methods of Arthritis knee treatment
knee treatment during the initial stages of knee arthritis involves
the use of conservative, nonsurgical measures. Some of the measures
taken during the course of arthritis knee treatment include losing weight,
switching from running or jumping exercises to swimming or cycling,
and minimizing activities such as climbing stairs that aggravate the
condition. Some of the other measures taken during the course of arthritis
knee treatment include performing exercises which helps increase the
range of motion and flexibility as well as help strengthen the muscles
in the leg. A cane, energy-absorbing shoes or inserts, a brace or knee
sleeve are some of the assistive devices that help the patients suffering
due to arthritis during the course of arthritis knee treatment.
When medications do not respond, arthritis knee treatment involving surgery becomes mandatory. The arthroscopic surgery for arthritis knee treatment uses fiber optic technology to enable the surgeon to see inside the joint and clean it of debris or repair the torn cartilage. An osteotomy procedure used for arthritis knee treatment, involves cutting the shinbone (tibia) or the thighbone (femur) to improve the alignment of the knee joint. A total or partial knee arthroplasty procedure used for arthritis knee treatment involves the replacement of the severely damaged knee joint cartilage with metal and plastic. Cartilage grafting is performed as part of arthritis knee treatment in some knees with limited or contained cartilage loss from trauma or arthritis.
