Individuals Rheumatism are at risk for decreased flexibility, muscle atrophy, decreased muscle strength and reduced cardiovascular endurance.
Deficit in such areas will lead to functional compromise and increased health care expenditures. Therefore, a multifactorial approach utilizing medications and rehabilitative techniques is necessary. Fortunately, under proper counseling, individuals with rheumatoid arthritis can safely exercise, improving overall physical fitness, greater ease for activities of daily living and an improved sense of well being. Rehabilitative techniques include appropriate periods of rest and activity modification; therapeutic modalities such as heat/cold or electrical stimulation; bracing and adaptive equipment.
Rheumatism are ailments affecting the joints. It can present in so many ways depending upon the cause of the condition. There may be swelling around the joint, pain, difficult movement, redness etc. Accurate diagnosis is the key to effective management. Investigations like blood tests, X ray, MRI etc maybe sought to, for identifyng the cause of the condition. Some conditions can be autoimmune which makes it difficult to treat whearas some are quite easily controlled with treatment. Different types of arthritis like Ostoearthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis broadly come unde this group. We have specific treatment protocols for each of such conditions.
Rehabilitation services may be provided at the following types of facilities:
Either freestanding or part of a hospital complex, patients stay up to 2–3 weeks. During this time, an organized team of specially trained professionals provides a coordinated, intensive therapy program – often 3 hours a day, 5 to 6 days a week.
As with inpatient programs, patients stay overnight at this facility during rehabilitation. Rehabilitation services at nursing facilities vary significantly, so families should get specific information about each option. “Skilled Nursing Facilities” (sometimes referred to as SNFs) typically place emphasis on more intense rehabilitation, while traditional “nursing homes” offer residential care with limited hours of therapy.
Often part of a larger medical complex, these facilities offer access to physicians and a full range of rehabilitation professionals without going to a hospital. Patients live at home, but typically visit the facility for several hours a day, 2 to 3 days a week, and receive coordinated and focused therapy sessions. For this to be a viable option, the patient must have access to transportation.
