People with osteoarthritis live with agonizing symptoms and intolerable pain. Cytotron, a relatively new form of treatment, has healed many joints doomed to be cut off and replaced with artificial limbs and prostheses.
Have you heard some older folks complaining of consistent pain in their knee joint? Some will notice when they walk or bend their knee joint, they could hear crackling sound. These are symptoms of osteoarthritis. Most of those who are suffering from this form of disease have to live with daily intolerable pain in their joint, most commonly knee. Some have gotten so bad that they are limping when they walk. Many have to rely on painkiller to maintain a bearable quality of life.
What is Osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis is a one form of arthritis. The end of our bones is covered by a layer of soft, elastic tissue known as cartilage. This cartilage helps to cushion the impact when the ends of two bones, as in the case of a knee joint, touch each other during times like trying to stand still from a jump, or jogging. When the cartilage is depleted, thinned out or mostly worn off, a person has osteoarthritis. That is when the ends of the bone may be touching each other or in contact. This leads to bone on bone impact, resulting in unbearable pain. If you ask a doctor about osteoarthrtis, chances are they will tell you there is no cure for this disease because cartilage cannot be re-grown or re-generated.. This is what is written in medical textbook and this is what is taught in medical school. In this article you will learn of a very new form of treatment that proves the medical textbook wrong and calls for re-writing of medical textbook.
What are the Symptoms?
All people suffering from osteoarthritis have some degree of pain. Some less, some more and some intolerable. Most are probably taking some form of glucosamine to help maintain their disease from getting worse. Many will still face deteriorating condition despite taking this supplement everyday. Many have deteriorated to relying on walking aids like crutches to walk. Some become wheelchair bound. The worst scenario is cutting the joint off and replace with an artificial one.
Medical Treatments Available
Unfortunately, there are not many options to treat this disease medically. And, there is no cure under the auspices of Conventional Medicine. Treatments are aimed at maintaining the disease from getting worse, though most patients’ condition will still deteriorate and get worse. Therefore, many will resort to painkiller to sustain their quality of life. As the pain gets worse, the painkiller gets stronger and stronger. Only those who have suffered or are suffering from this disease know the agony and frustration of this debilitating disease. When the condition gets to the point where all cartilage has virtually worn out, the specialist will have to resort to joint replacement surgery. Unfortunately, replacement surgery may not solve the problem once and for all. Often, one has to undergo more than one surgery or return after a few years to do more work on the replaced joint. Sometimes, people with replaced knee joint could not walk properly. Sometimes, there may be inflammation around the replaced joint. Wherever surgery is involved, a patient is almost always subject to many risks, including infection and inflammation.
