How to do exercises for older patients?

Some elderly patients may find it difficult or impossible to do exercise even though they have tried to do so. They may ask their friends, family and doctors to help them do the exercises, or do them at home themselves.

The elderly patients are usually more relaxed when they do exercise because they have found a support in their hands, arms and legs and so feel more confident. Often they don’t have to do the exercises as much as they would like and do not feel tired after doing them. They may feel more comfortable doing exercises while sitting down, particularly for people with low back pain. Many older patients who are not able to do exercise because they are suffering from some form of arthritis should be offered this.

It is always advisable to be cautious when doing these exercises if a patient has an ankylosing spondylitis. There has been a large increase in the incidence of osteoarthritis of the spine, the joints and the ligaments.

What is ankylosing spondylitis and what are its symptoms

Ankylosing spondylitis is a degenerative disease of the spine. There are three main stages of ankylosing spondylitis. If the ankylosing spondylitis in a patient is not controlled it may lead to a lot of other pain, difficulty in walking and increased symptoms of muscle weakness, pain, numbness or weakness.

These are some of the most common symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis. These symptoms may only appear in 1 in a 100 cases but there have been cases of people showing more symptoms, such as:

In the first stage the joints in the back start to develop pain and stiffness. In most of cases these symptoms are gone after 3 weeks of treatment.

In the second stage pain can start to improve, but it is much more severe. This is often the most frequent stage and often goes into complete absence by 6 weeks. At this point, the patient is usually still in the third stage.

In the final stage of ankylosing spondylitis the joints in the back gradually fail and so begin to have problems with movement. This is a stage in which most patients feel the best. It is often called ‘incomplete’ ankylosing spondylitis. The ankylosing spondylitis may not be complete at all but may still be progressing. The end result is a patient who has no arthritis in the joints and who has lost the pain and stiffness from the first stage. These are the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis in the joints.

What is the solution?

There are several causes for these symptoms, as the cause is usually determined from the stage at which these symptoms begin. The symptoms can come and go in a short period of time, sometimes being mild or becoming more severe over a long period of time.

The only way of reducing the amount of pain in the joints is to reduce the level of inflammation. The levels of inflammation are the key to getting rid of the symptoms and to controlling the disease. The best way to do this is to have a good doctor who understands that arthritis is a degenerative disease of the spine. The doctor will usually discuss how the arthritis develops and how it progresses with you. A good doctor is willing to do the exercises and support you. He or she knows that you are not being treated as a child and that you need help. He or she will understand that arthritis is.
