Tips Treatment Of Rheumatoid - chronic ra

Rheumatoid arthritis treatment can relieve join pain symptoms and may slow progression of the disease. The best rheumatoid arthritis treatment has the best results when it is started early and aggressively.
To get results in these disease, the doctor will pursue these strategies for rheumatoid arthritis treatment:

  • Early, aggressive treatment: The first strategy is to reduce or stop the inflammation of rheumatoid arthritis as soon as possible, the sooner the better.

  • Targeting remission of arthritus: Doctors refer to inflammation in RA, as the disease activity. The ultimate goal is to stop inflammation and achieve remission, meaning signs of inflammation o be minimal or not present signs or symptoms of active inflammation. One strategy to achieve this goal  in rheumatoid arthritis treatment is called "treat to target."
  • Tight control: Getting a disease activity at a low level and keeping it there is what is called an ,,tight control of rheumatoid arthritis." Research shows that tight control can prevent or slow the rate of joint damage.

  • RA medications: There are various medicines used to treat arthritus. Some are used primarily to relieve symptoms of RA; others are used to slow or stop the disease and to inhibit structural damage. Medications for mild symptoms are: anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) available over-the-counter. They are used to help relieve the pain of arthritis and inflammation. NSAIDs include drugs as ibuprofen, ketoprofen and naproxen sodium, among others. For people who have had or are at risk of gastric ulcers, the doctor may prescribe celecoxib, a type of NSAID called a COX-2 inhibitor that is designed to be safer for the stomach. These drugs can be taken orally or applied to the skin (as a patch or cream), directly to a swollen joint.Drugs that slow activity diseases corticosteroidsCorticosteroid medications, including prednisone and methyprednisolone, anti-inflammatory drugs are fast acting. They can be used in RA to keep under control potentially harmful inflammation, while waiting NSAIDs and DMARDs (below) for their effect. Because of the risk of side effects associated with these drugs, doctors prefer to use them for the shortest time possible and at doses as small as possible. DMARD is an acronym for antirheumatic drugs. DMARDs are drugs that work to modify the course of disease.
  • Traditional DMARDs including: methotrexate, hydroxycholorquine, sulfasalazine, leflunomide, cyclophosphamide and azathioprine. These drugs can be taken orally, injected or be self-administered as an infusion in a doctor's office. Biologics: These drugs are a subset of DMARD. Biologics can work faster than traditional DMARDs, and are injected or administered by infusion in a doctor's office. Because they target specific steps in the inflammation process, they do not destroy the entire immune response, as do other RA treatments. Inhibitors JAK are one nine sub DMARDs. Known as "JAK inhibitors" block Janus kinase or JAK pathways, which are involved in the body's immune response. Tofacitinib belongs to this class. Unlike Biologics, it can be administered orally.
  • Surgery: Surgery for RA may not be necessary, but can be an important option for people with permanent damage is limited to the vital function of everyday mobility and independence. Joint replacement surgery can relieve pain and restore function in severely affected joints of RA. The procedure involves replacing the damaged components of a joint with metal and plastic parts. Hips and knees are most commonly affected. However, ankles, shoulders, wrists, elbows, and other joints can be considered for replacement.

So do not forget you goals! Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a progressive inflammatory disease that affects the joints. It gets worse over time unless the inflammation is stopped or slowed. Only in very rare cases, rheumatoid arthritis goes into remission without treatment.The objectives of treatment are rheumatoid arthritis and RA medication to control inflammation and to slow down or stop in RA (arthritus).
Rheumatoid arthritis treatment usually includes medications, occupational or physical therapy and regular exercise. Early, aggressive treatment is the key to good results. And with today's treatments, joint damage can be slowed or stopped in many cases.
