Dr Jatinder Singla, Director Orthopedics, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Mohali said, “Arthritis means inflammation or swelling of one or more joints. It describes more than 100 conditions that affect the joints and connective tissues. Specific symptoms vary depending on the type of arthritis but commonly with age people suffer pain and stiffness. Pain that affects joints might hurt during or after movement and joint stiffness might be most noticeable upon waking up or after being inactive. Your joint might feel tender when you apply light pressure to or near it, loss of flexibility, grating sensation, bone spurs, and swelling are some noticeable symptoms.The pain comes with a fever and it develops quickly and is related to redness and extreme tenderness of the joint.”
Dr Rahul Mahajan, Consultant Neurology, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Mohali said“With growing age, we notice visible and invisible changes in our body like headache, migraine, facial deviation, uncontrolled seizures, stroke, memory loss, difficulty in walking and speech. Elderly persons are more likely to suffer from a neurological problem after the age of 55-yr because our brain and central nervous system are going through the aging process too. This is one reason elderly persons are more likely to suffer from neurological problems. Regular exercise, quitting smoking and tobacco products, getting plenty of rest, taking care of diabetes, high BP, balanced diet with ample sources of vitamins B6, B12, and folate can keep neurological problems at bay.”
