by Shreya Mehta Presenting from the patient's point of view
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) or Sandhivata is a chronic disorder that leads to loss of movement in joints and can also lead to disability, if not cured and managed in time. It is one of the most common forms of arthritis found in ageing adults. There are a number of ways for sandhivata upchar or treatment but it is a commonly known fact that the best way to take care of rheumatoid arthritis is its effective management. And one of the most promising and effective ways to take care of chronic RA cases is use of physiotherapy and physical exercises to reduce stiffness in joints, provide relief from pain, strengthen muscles and improve joint mobility.

Benefits & Role of Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy plays a major role in effective management of rheumatoid arthritis and one should consult a professional physiotherapist for the same. As sandhivata affects mobility and movement of joint, this leads to a reduction in physical activities on part of the patient. This causes joint immobilization and physiotherapy serves as an effective way to keep the joints mobile through simple exercise. This improves muscle strength and helps a patient to stay physically active in daily life.
 
Factors to Keep in Mind while Planning Physiotherapy Sessions for Sandhivata Upchar

As rheumatoid arthritis can be of different types and can take various forms, physiotherapy sessions must be planned while keeping multiple factors in mind. A professional physiotherapist, before suggesting exercising schedule for a patient keeps in mind stage of rheumatoid arthritis, age of patient, compliance of patient with the exercising schedule and if rheumatoid arthritis involves only local or systematic joints. Based on these factors, the physiotherapy sessions duration, severity and schedules are decided. Also, a structured and customized physiotherapy program is framed comprising of stretching, aerobics, strengthening and other exercises according to the comfort level of the patient.

A patient suffering from active rheumatoid arthritis looking for sandhivata upchar must ensure that he/she avoids heavy physical activities such as climbing stairs of lifting heavy objects. Also, in chronic cases of inactive arthritis, a physiotherapist can recommend common conditioning exercises such as walking, cycling and swimming along with adequate resting periods for excellent results.

As conditioning exercises are known to improve muscle endurance and aerobic capacity in a patient suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, these exercises can be really beneficial in effective management and sandhivata upchar in the long term. One thing that must be kept in mind while drafting an exercise program is that if a pain increases, patient feels weak or joints swell after physiotherapy session/exercise, the whole physiotherapy session must be revised and a doctor must be consulted for further course of action.

These patients can really benefit from physiotherapy sessions conducted under the guidance and supervision of a qualified and professional physiotherapist. Also, a careful planning of routine physical activities can help in reducing pain level and improving mobility of joints.
