Myths and truth about our joints
How harmless is knee pain or lower back stiffness? When to start worrying?
Joint pain can be due to various causes. Since joint problems are not uncommon - in Russia more than 600 thousand people get arthrosis annually - a lot of myths and speculations arose around this topic. Consider the most popular of them.
Myth # 1. Joint pain comes from “salt deposition”. This problem has no relation to table salt. On the other hand, a rather rare deviation in the metabolism (with gouty arthritis) leads to the deposition of uric acid salt in the joints.
Myth number 2. Arthrosis is treated with painkillers (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory) drugs. This is not true. In complex treatment, the doctor prescribes them almost always to improve the patient's quality of life. Few of us like living with pain. But they can not influence the development of arthrosis.
Myth number 3. Arthrosis can be cured very quickly. In reality, only a systemic approach and long-term use of supporting drugs - chondroprotectors - will help get rid of arthrosis.
Myth number 4. Tomatoes are responsible for the appearance of arthrosis. Arthrosis is usually the result of a complex of factors unfavorable for the joint (trauma, sedentary lifestyle, prolonged stress, weight gain). However, eating tomatoes does not apply to them.
Myth number 5. Cure arthrosis can be "folk medicine." In fact, medicinal herbs and rubbing them can help relieve symptoms. But in order to achieve a pronounced therapeutic effect, they should be used only in combination with chondroprotectors, gymnastics and hyaluronic acid preparations.
Myth number 6. Squats help cure arthrosis of the knee joints (gonarthrosis). Excessive load on damaged joints is very dangerous. Squats can lead to knee injuries even in healthy people. If the knee joints are already affected, then you can only accelerate the development of the disease!
Myth number 7. Joint diseases are inherited (they are congenital). Arthrosis itself is not related to heredity. Genetically transmitted features of metabolism, the structure of cartilage and skeleton. But this does not necessarily lead to the development of arthrosis. Congenital anomalies of the joint also do not always lead to osteoarthritis. If you pay due attention to your health, even with unfavorable heredity, arthrosis does not threaten you.
Reality: how to get rid of pain?What to do if joints already make themselves felt? First of all, the correct diagnosis is necessary. Without consulting a qualified specialist, you can not do here.
It is important to know that changes occur in the joint structure over time. The cartilage with which the endings of bones in contact in the joint are covered becomes more fragile over time, loses elasticity and gradually wears out. You can try to restore it with glucosamine. The production of the latter in the body with age becomes insufficient, and the metabolism in the joint is impaired. In its natural form, glucosamine is found in cartilage. But in most cuisines of the world, cartilage is not a familiar product. To compensate for its deficiency in the body, we would also have to abandon the heat treatment of cartilage, which is associated with a health risk.
The company Promo-Med recently launched the innovative Ellastenga product on the Russian market, which contains a unique substance, Active Glucosamine. The natural glucosamine in Ellasteng is easily absorbed and can help improve the condition of tissues in damaged joints. Ellastang gel can be used to enhance the effect - local action can enhance the effect.
The benefits of regular use of Ellasteng: • stimulates the restoration of cartilage tissue • helps to reduce the risk of diseases of the musculoskeletal system; • helps to improve joint mobility; • reduces discomfort in the joints; • helps to prevent cartilage destruction; • participates in the biosynthesis of cartilage tissue; • improves the functional state musculoskeletal system • participates in the processes of cartilage tissue regeneration.
To maintain the required glucosamine level, it is enough to take 1 capsule
