Most often, reactive arthritis is caused by an infection of the digestive system or reproductive system (bladder, urethra, genitals). You can find out the cause of arthritis at an appointment with a specialist, and tests and additional examinations will provide confirmation of the diagnosis.
Get antibiotic therapy. The standard course of treatment is usually 7-14 days. During this time, it is necessary to take antibacterial drugs that have been selected taking into account the determination of the sensitivity of microorganisms to their action. After completing the medication course, you will need to take tests after 3 weeks and, if necessary, undergo a second course of taking antibacterial drugs.
Eliminate inflammation in the affected joints. To reduce pain and inflammation in the joints, it is necessary to take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and glucocorticoids. The dosage and duration of the course depends on the degree of intensity of the inflammatory processes. In some cases, the introduction of hormonal drugs into the joint is indicated.
Use traditional medicine methods. Local applications on sore joints, compresses and ointments help speed up tissue repair. A mixture of honey, aloe and vodka, warm sea salt compresses, paraffin applications and herbal infusions (violet tricolor herb, cherry seeds, birch buds) help reduce inflammation.
Restore joint mobility. Physiotherapy exercises will help return the joint to perform its functions - it should be practiced regularly and under the supervision of an instructor. Physiotherapy (ultrasound, magnetotherapy, heat exposure, laser treatment, current, acupuncture, etc.) is designed to restore damaged tissue and accelerate the healing process. Spa treatment (water procedures, mud applications, massage) allows you to eliminate all manifestations of the disease, fully restore the functionality of the joints and reduce to a minimum the risk of relapse.
