Apparatus for treatment of gout, cervical degenerative disc disease and back massage
Gout is one of the oldest chronic diseases in the world. In the Middle ages many great men suffered from this disease mainly because that consumed a lot of meat and fish and drank all of it a fair amount of alcohol. Among the famous patients of those times is well known for king Henry VIII, the sculptor and artist Michelangelo. For the first time about gout wrote Hippocrates, and he called it simply «a trap for the feet» — so the word gout and translated from the Greek.
What is gout
Gout is a metabolic disorders. It occurs due to the high content of uric acid in the body. Uric acid (urate of sodium) excreted by the kidneys and is the result of the breakdown of purines, which enter the body with food.
Purines are the simplest representatives of imidazopyrimidines (heterocyclic compound, having a flat molecule). Purines represent colourless crystals, very soluble in water. They are contained in almost all foods and usually excreted along with the urine. But once the metabolism is disturbed and uric acid starts to be produced more than output. Accordingly, the acid content in the blood increases.
At a certain concentration of uric acid formed crystals of urate. They can be deposited in the joints, under the skin and in the kidneys. In the end, urate accumulates in the tissues.
Gradually in those places where the salts accumulate, the cones are formed, which eventually leads to deformation of joints, treatment which is often used by special devices.
The treatment of the disease
The General plan of treatment includes the removal of pain and constant intake of necessary medicines. While acute pain is usually prescribe colchicine, it helps to relieve pain during the day. Still used drugs such as ibuprofen and indomethacin. Can also help special devices. Physiotherapy methods and hardware treatment will help relieve acute pain and protisa with gout. To such methods of treatment include:
- the use of devices for UV radiation and electrophoresis of drugs;
- back massage;
- bromine and radon baths;
- mineral water.
The device physiotherapeutic treatment called phonophoresis. With his help, the treatment is combined with diet and medications, especially in the case of chronic gouty arthritis, and the presence of inflammatory changes in the joints. The use of apparatus for the treatment of osteoarthritis may reduce joint pain.
Treatment of gout with the help of machines is having a good effect on synovial membrane of joint — inner layer of joint capsule or bone-fibrous channel.
The treatment helps to remove uric acid salts from the human body, the kidney condition improves. Such procedures using the apparatus for the treatment of gout contribute to the anti-inflammatory effects. Tophi shrink and gradually disappear and gout attacks reduce their frequency and duration.
About this equipment you can still say that it is usually used in periods of complete or incomplete remission. Treatment in the acute period is designed for multiple procedures: it is ultraviolet irradiation of the joint, impulsive currents, electrophoresis and application of dimethyl sulfoxide, which has analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects. It is used in the form of a solution mixed with water, sometimes adding analgin.
Treatment in intermediate-paroxysmal period is performed using the ultrasonic device, which affects the joints, reducing the crystals and pain relief. Ultrasound has a stronger effect in combination phonophoresis of hydrocortisone as it acts directly on the blood circulation and removes crystals faster and more efficiently. This system treatment improves the functionality of the kidneys.
With joint pain and thermotherapy is used with applications of mud and paraffin. It helps reduce pain and improves joint function. Thermotherapy is often recommended for the treatment of osteoarthritis, this procedure is carried out using paraffin.
What camera to choose
The benefits of physiotherapy include the treatment of arthritis and cervical degenerative disc disease. Apparatus for the treatment of osteoarthritis — it is also phonophoresis. The use of back massage will help to relax the muscles that have a beneficial impact on joint function. For the treatment of osteochondrosis in house conditions it is possible to buy a special physiotherapy massage device. It is simple and easy to use, but be sure to consult with your doctor.
Currently available wide range of devices for the treatment of both at home and in the hospital. The most common series of such hardware are the devices of the «Vitafon». Foniruyutsya such devices are oriented for home use. The essence of treatment of these funds is to compensate the deficit of biological microvibrations tissue in the human body. It is a basic condition to achieve the desired treatment outcome.
Among the main advantages of this type of apparatus experts highlighted the fact that the «Vitafon» is very effective even when medications do not achieve the desired results of treatment or the symptoms of the disease are added side effects that interfere in achieving the goal. In addition, this series of machines can be used for patients of all ages, since the devices are absolutely safe and do not cause the development of comorbidities.
In a range of devices «Vitafon» includes several varieties of it: «Vitafon», «Vitafon-T», «Vitafon-5», «Vitafon-IR» and «Vitafon-2».
They differ in the number of features and modulation modes of vibrations, the number of simultaneous tonirovania areas on the body of the patient. The list of pros and noted the presence of the device memory to the last session of treatments and also work these devices from the mains and from the battery.
Under what other conditions apply machines
The composition of such devices usually includes a special mattress that:
- allows to carry out the procedure of massage;
- used to treat degenerative disc disease (including cervical degenerative disc disease);
- it is used to treat arthritis;
- suitable for the treatment of degenerative disc disease in the home.
As a massage mattress can be used for individuals of any body type and age. It has enough adjustments in length and width. This allows the patient to feel comfortable during the procedures.
In addition to back massage and treatment of low back pain, massage device allows high-quality and low-cost treatment gout. In equipment such mattresses are no dangerous or inaccessible places, which makes physiotherapy treatment method tonirovania at a high level.
Thus, the use of hardware in treating diseases of the joints allows to minimize the use of expensive and sometimes completely ineffective drugs. Massage mattresses and appliances for the treatment of such diseases together lead to a painless and long-lasting result, the outcome of which will be a complete healing from arthritis, osteoarthritis or gout. The treatment method of tonirovania at this stage of development of medicine is one of the most affordable and quality in the fight against disease.
