上楼梯时,关节突然剧烈疼痛

关节容易折断或扭伤?

您是否患有骨关节炎?

骨关节炎是由关节退化所引起,是一种常见的慢性关节疾病。骨关节炎,通常被解析为 “磨损性”关节炎,好发于手指、手肘、髋骨及膝盖关节。

 

发炎的关节最初会感觉疼痛,紧接着肿胀。由于疼痛和肿胀,导致关节的活动受到限制。

 

随着持续的肢体活动,将出现难以忍受的疼痛,即使在温柔的触碰下也会变得难以忍受。持续性的关节疼痛或僵硬,好发于早晨一起床或身体长时间处在固定姿势。这种疾病可能涉及一个或多个关节。

 

 

根据一项新加坡健康调查显示,年仅18岁的年轻人面对长期关节的问题。

 

10% - 20% 马来西亚年长者遭受膝盖关节炎的影响。
 
东南亚年龄介于25岁及以上的人当中,有29.5%的人患有手部骨关节炎。
 
亚洲女性骨关节炎的风险高于男性。

关节疼痛非靠止痛药不可?

虽然止痛药或其他止痛处方可以快速解决问题,但是也同时存有许多副作用如轻微的肠胃不适、晕眩,而更令人担心的是肝脏和肾脏受损。药物的耐受性也是一项值得关注的事,身体可能需要越来越多高的药物剂量以达到止痛的效果。
