Five daily effects of osteoarthritis

by | Jul 5, 2023 | Reports

 Pain is one of the most prominent symptoms of osteoarthritis. People suffering from osteoarthritis experience pain in the affected joints constantly or intermittently. This pain can vary in intensity and usually worsens with movement or at the end of the day. The sensation of pain can significantly affect quality of life, limiting the ability to perform basic daily activities such as walking, climbing stairs and even sleeping properly.

 Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that affects millions of people worldwide.

 It is characterized by wear and tear of the cartilage lining the joints, which causes pain, stiffness and inflammation. Although osteoarthritis is more common in older people, it can also affect young people due to joint injuries, congenital malformations or genetic factors.

At Quantic Nanotech we have spent years researching and working on the development of a therapeutic glove with advanced technology with the aim of mitigating the effects of this painful disease. In addition, we have developed a natural cosmetic with anti-inflammatory properties that can help improve the symptoms of osteoarthritis and arthritis.

 An open clinical trial conducted in several centers, by prestigious rheumatology experts, has shown significant efficacy in improving pain and function in patients with osteoarthritis of the hands.

 Osteoarthritis affects thousands of people and conditions their daily activity. Today we discuss five of the day-to-day effects of this disease, and how it impacts the lives of those who suffer from it.

  •      Chronic pain: Pain is one of the most prominent symptoms of osteoarthritis. People suffering from osteoarthritis experience pain in the affected joints constantly or intermittently. This pain can vary in intensity and usually worsens with movement or at the end of the day. The sensation of pain can significantly affect quality of life, limiting the ability to perform basic daily activities such as walking, climbing stairs and even sleeping properly.
  •     Limited Mobility: Joint stiffness is another daily effect of osteoarthritis. As the disease progresses, the affected joints become less flexible and stiffer. This makes movement more difficult and decreases the range of motion of the joints. Simple tasks such as grasping objects, buttoning clothes or getting up from a chair can become challenging and painful. Reduced mobility can also lead to decreased physical activity, which in turn can have negative effects on cardiovascular health and overall well-being.
  •     Impact on daily life: Osteoarthritis affects not only physical health, but also the quality of life of those who suffer from it. People with osteoarthritis often experience difficulties in performing basic household tasks such as cooking, cleaning or shopping. Recreational activities such as playing sports, dancing or going for walks may also be limited. These changes in functional ability can lead to frustration, sadness and even social isolation, as people with osteoarthritis sometimes avoid certain situations due to their condition.
  •     Emotional and mental disorders: Osteoarthritis not only affects the physical body, but also the emotional and mental well-being of those who suffer from it. Chronic pain and limited mobility can have a significant impact on mood, leading to depression, anxiety and stress. Loss of autonomy and the feeling of being limited by the disease can lead to feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. Adequate emotional support, both from healthcare professionals and from family and friends, is essential to cope with the emotional challenges of osteoarthritis.
  •     Dependence on medications and treatments: Osteoarthritis is a chronic disease that requires long-term treatments. People with osteoarthritis are often forced to rely on medications to relieve pain and reduce inflammation.

In addition to medications, affected individuals often require physical therapy, muscle strengthening exercises and lifestyle changes to combat symptoms. These treatments often involve a financial and time burden, as well as side effects from the medications used. The constant need for treatment and disease management can lead to a sense of dependence and worry about the future.
