Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are medical condition mostly caused by work related occupations and working environment, affecting patients’ muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments and nerves and developing over time. A community sample of 73 females and 32 males aged 85 and over underwent a standardised examination at home. Musculoskeletal pain was reported by 57% of those interviewed. A major restriction of joint movement range was frequent in the shoulder but uncommon in other joints(1).
Types of Musculo-Skeletal disorders in elder(2)
3. Rheumatoid Arthritis
4. Polymalagia Arthritis
5. Cervical myleopathy and spinal canal stenosis
7. Low back pain
Osteoarthritis (OA), a form of arthritis, is defined as a condition of as a result of aging causes of wear and tear on a joint, affecting over 25 million people in the United States in alone. University of Porto Medical School indicated that one must understand the differences in prevalence and incidence estimates of osteoarthritis (OA), according to case definition, in knee, hip and hand joints(3).
The characteristics of osteoarthritis are aching pain(5), stiffness(6), or difficulty of moving the joint or joints(7). The pain usually gets worse in change of weather, at night and in the advanced diseases, the pain can occur even at rest(8). Today management of osteoarthritis (OA) focuses on pain relief and improved physical function through pharmacological, non pharmacological, and surgical treatments(4).
B. In herbal and traditional Chinese medicine perspective
B.3. The Preventive Minerals
1. Minerals for osteoarthritis
Certain minerals such as calcium(316)(317), magnesium, selenium, zinc, and iron; may be a good sources of pain reliever for patient with osteoarthritis, according to the studies(325). According to the randomized to four double-blinded treatments for 12 weeks by Minnesota Applied Research Center, Glucosamine sulfate (1500 mg/d), Aquamin (2400 mg/d) and Combined treatment composed of Glucosamine sulfate (1500 mg/d) have shown effectively in improvements in symptoms of pain and stiffness of osteoarthritis(315).
The osteoporosis association of Canada recommended at 3 serving of milk and alternative serving of yogurt, cheese, calcium-fortified beverages, puddings, custards, etc for 50 plus elder(318). In deed, as we get older the function of replacement of osteoclasts in any areas of damaged or weakened bone are slower due to reduced process of bone remodelling(319) of which may involve the utilization of body in calcium aborption(319).
According to the study by Central South University,dietary magnesium (Mg) of elder patients is associated to reduce risk of radiographic knee osteoarthritis (OA), joint space narrowing (JSN)(320), especially in white population(321).
According to joint study lead by Dr. Zeng C, Serum Magnesium Concentration is found to be deficient in patient with osteoarthritis(322). In deed, patient with osteoarthritis is found to have a decreased bone levels of Mg, in comparison of radiographic bone density and bone mineral density (BMD) in patient with Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs)(323),
In male STR/1N mice model, dietary selenium and other vitamins not only is found to have an decreased risk of osteoartritis, OA, but also play an important role in prevention or therapy of mechanically induced OA(324). In deed, according to the joint study by College of Medicine of Xi'an Jiaotong University, alterations in selenium metabolism and apoptosis due to inability of MYC mediated metabolism and apoptosis signaling pathway may contribute to the pathogenesis of KBD, a special type of endemic osteoarthritis(326). Patient with osteoarthritis is found to have a low level of selenium in comparison to osteopororsis(323).
Zinc may plays an important role for the development of osteoarthritis, according to Randers Regional Hospital, patient with osteoarthritis are found to have significantly higher serum zinc concentrations and lower urine zinc concentrations in comparison to patient with osteoporosis(327).
High level of zinc in patient with osteoarthritis may be a influence of bone turnover and femoral head bone density and biomechanical properties(328).
In the inflammatory effects, according to the Harran University, plasma trace element concentrations do not exhibit change in immunoregulatory cytokines in OA patient(329).
Used topical Copper-salicylate gel has shown to relief pain for patients with the hip or knee osteoarthritis with side effects of more skin rashes(330). Other topical Cu-Indo gel has shown effectively against joint inflammation in the MIA-treated rat model of osteoarthritis(332).
In a comparison of caeruloplasmin-bound copper in serum copper levels in 49 patients with active rheumatoid arthritis, in 33 patients with osteoarthritis, research found that caeruloplasmin-bound and non-caeruloplasmin bound are both elevate in serum copper levels in the rheumatoid group, as compared to patient with osteoarthritis(331).
Reduced in take of rich iron dietary foods and supplements may be necessary for patient with with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, according to studies, synovial iron deposition is found to associate to patient with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis(334). Hereditary hemochromatosis (HH), a hereditary disease cause of excessive intestinal absorption of dietary iron, may have a contribution to the synovial iron overload in induction of the progression of HH-related OA(333).
