Tennis Elbow

"Though this condition is known as Tennis Elbow, this is not commonly seen in Tennis Players. It is also termed as elbow lateral epicondylitis. All age groups go through Tennis Elbow, especially the working class. It can occur either due to a single injury or repetitive work pattern. Usually one has pain along the outer aspect of the elbow (lateral epicondyle of the elbow). It occurs due to inflammation of the extensor carpi radialis brevis tendon. During the acute inflammatory phase, it is always advisable to take adequate rest with anti-inflammatory medications.  Unfortunately, majority of the population do neglect treatment and continue working in spite of the pain.  At one point of time the pain will become more severe and non-responsive to medication, but 60 percentage of initial pain will get healed completely over a period of one year.


Patients not responding to anti-inflammatory medication may need steroid injections at the site of inflammation.

Before using steroid injection, one must be aware of its pros and cons.  It is the duty of the practitioner to make the patient aware of  steroid injection and its benefits.  If epicondylitis progresses to an advanced stage,  it may result in complete or partial tear of the ECRB. In such cases, with partial tear, there is a definite role for PRP  (platelet rich plasma ) injections which yield complete relief in 50% of cases.

Complete tear may fail to heal by itself and necessitates repair of the ECRB tendon to the bone followed by a structured Physiotherapy to yield complete functional outcome" says Dr. M. Shyam Sundar of Ortho-One, a Specialist in Shoulder & Elbow Surgery, Joint Replacement, Sports Medicine.

They are the most active muscles helping our daily activity and tend to get tight.  Women who stand and work in the kitchen for long hours often get calf muscle pain.

Selecting the correct method, correct dosage of exercise is also the key for obtaining good results. When the stretch is done, there will be a sense of stretch followed by pain and it will be due to the stretching of the muscle.

The body has to be held in that position where you feel the stretch and you can count till 20.  Perform 5 times of these stretch exercises in a session and during the day.

Rheumatoid arthritis is different from other types of arthritis in one way. It affects joints on both sides of the body, such as both hands, both wrists or both knees.

What are the causes of RA?
Doctors don’t know the exact cause. Something seems to trigger the immune system to attack the joints and sometimes the other organs. Few experts have a thought that a virus or bacteria may trigger changes in the immune system, causing it to attack the joints.. Certain genetic patterns may make some people more likely to get RA than others.
How Is RA Treated?
The different treatment options for RA include medications, rest and exercise and in some cases, surgery to correct the joint damage.

Get Permanent Relief From Arthritis


In recent times, we might have been hearing the term Arthritis, but we might not have known what exactly, Arthritis is.

What is Arthritis?
Arthritis is a term often used to mean any disorder that affects joints.

Symptoms
Symptoms generally include joint pain and stiffness. Other symptoms may include redness, warmth, swelling, and decreased range of motion of the affected joints.

As of today, there has been no cure identified for rheumatic diseases. Research carried out in this area suggests that though there are no cures, the condition can be controlled. Treatment of arthritis may vary from individual to individual. Depending on the type, severity and impact of the disease, treatment has to be tailored to suit every individual. On discussion with experienced doctors, the risk and benefits of each treatment method can be analyzed. Experienced doctors at Ortho One at Coimbatore, India can give you best results within a short span of time. 


Medication for Arthritis: 

Inflammatory arthritis can be treated by using drugs. The sooner the patient starts the treatment, the better. Taking quick action on inflammatory arthritis can reduce the damage caused to the bones and joints. 

Therapy through drugs can be divided into two categories: 
  • Drugs that treat the symptoms (stiffness and pain) of arthritis
  • Drugs that can suppress the effects of inflammation, reducing progression of the disease.
To our luck, there’s no treatment in the world that can produce no side effects. Side effects in the treatment of arthritis using medication can be minor, and rarely serious. Consulting with rheumatology consultants can make it easy to treat the disease.

What are the possible medications for arthritis? 
  • Painkillers: The most commonly used painkiller is paracetamol. They can suppress the pain, but cannot give you long term relief.
  • Steroids and NSAIDS (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs): These are highly effective. They are used in the combination with analgesics. They are mostly prescribed in the cases of inflammation as they reduce swelling, stiffness, and pain. They are also available as gels and injections. NSAIDS are used with caution as they can produce heart attacks, strokes, and also affect important organs. 
What are the medications for Inflammation?

DMARDS (Disease Modifying Anti-Rheumatic Drugs): It helps suppress the inflammation, and also helps in treating the cause of the disease. They are mostly used in the treatment of inflammatory types of arthritis, and connecting tissue diseases. They can be used safely when used for short durations. 

What are the Physical Therapies for Arthritis? 

Several physical therapies are recommended, a few of them are: 
  •  Hydrotherapy: Regular Exercise in a warm pool of water can provide you enough support and can avoid putting pressure on the joints. 
  •  Occupational Therapy: These Advices on how to manage daily tasks without adding pressure to the joints. 
  •  Physiotherapy: This helps with general fitness as well. Exercises are tailored to the patient's needs, along with usage of heat packs, and ice to help reduce pain. 
  • Surgery in Treatment of Arthritis: Surgery for arthritis has become a common procedure. If the damage caused to the joint is severe or treatments through other measures fail, surgery is the option. They are very simple procedures called keyhole surgery, where the joint needn’t be opened up. 
Ortho One Orthopedic Specialty Center offers best Arthritis Treatment in Tamilnadu with the help of dedicated team of doctors and other staff.
