Cones on the legs, why they appear and how to get rid of them
On the globe, a lot of people suffer fromthe fact that they have on one or both legs, in the region of the thumb, there are deformations, called in the people bones or cones. For their treatment, a lot of recipes are offered, but before embarking on their application in practice, it is not out of place to find out what it is - the bumps on their feet, where they come from.
First of all, I want to note that this is not justa cosmetic defect, but still a disease. Not even one. Hated cones can be the result of gout, osteoarthritis and valgus deformity of the joints of the thumb. Of course, each of these diseases has its own causes and its methods of treatment, although outwardly they are manifested by the same ugly bones.
Cones on the legs, caused by gout - nothing more,as a complex disease, based on a metabolic disorder in the body. In patients, uric acid is not excreted by the kidneys, but accumulates in the blood and is deposited in the joints. In addition to sesamoid bone and metatarsophalangeal joints, it can be deposited anywhere, even in some human organs. Naturally, no lotions here can not be helped, drugs are needed to reduce the level of uric acid. Various ointments and tinctures, as well as ordinary iodine, help to relieve inflammation caused by gout and pain.
The causes of gout are many, includingfrequent intake of alcohol in large quantities, an incorrect lifestyle, unbalanced diet, neuropsychological disorders and heredity. Completely restore the metabolism and thus permanently end gout, unfortunately, fails. But you can control its manifestation, adhering to the right diet, eliminating the consumption of salty foods, smoked products, spicy spices and alcohol. During periods of exacerbation it is recommended to use baths from sea salt, decoctions of chamomile, nettle, sage, calendula. After the foot bath, wipe off, and put on an ointment with an analgesic on the sore spot.
You can apply a slurry of raw potatoes orordinary potato starch, mixed with sunflower oil. Also, folk medicine advises taking decoctions of nettle and cowberry leaves to remove salt from the body. Excellent result gives and rice diet, during which every morning for breakfast you need to eat boiled rice without salt, sugar, butter and any other ingredients. If enough salts were deposited in the joint, and the deformation is already considerable, shock-wave therapy is used that destroys and removes salts, followed by mud treatment.
Cones on the legs caused by valgus deformityjoint, usually associated with congenital flat feet, congenital deformities, as well as frequent wearing tight or narrow shoes and shoes with high heels. The toe is thus turned inside, and the joint begins to bulge, forming a bump. When contact with shoes, especially hard, there are pains in the curved joint, it becomes inflamed. If the time does not take action, the thumb can curve so much that it lies on the adjacent fingers. The joint can move so badly that even surgical intervention will not restore the normal appearance to the foot, and the person will have an easy gait.
How to remove cones on legs in such cases? There are many tips and recipes. Perhaps, if the disease is in the initial stage, and the cone is not large, applying animals and birds to the affected area of bile, beeswax, propolis, combined with wearing a corrective bandage and even using shoes, and using a wide soft shoe will give definite results. If the deformity of the joints is already significant, all tinctures and lotions can help to relieve inflammation only. Effective treatment is performed only surgically, and in some cases, surgeons insert knitting needles into the joints of the curved fingers, and the adjacent fingers are held in position by special screws. This operation is very difficult. To prevent this, you need to contact the orthopedists at the initial stage of the disease.
In some cases, joint deformitygrows into an osteoarthritis. In this case, deformations occur not only in the joints, but also in the bone tissue. This disease is more common in full people and in the elderly, although it can also occur at a fairly young age. It is caused by a deficiency in the body of trace elements, acquired or congenital diseases of bones and joints, regular hypothermia, joint injuries, operations on them, toxins.
To treat such bumps on the legs should be superviseddoctor. Medical methods, laser therapy, mud therapy, oxygen therapy and others are used. From folk medicine, you can take recipes that relieve pain, swelling, redness around the cone. If the doctor suggests surgery to remove it, you do not need to refuse. The operation in most cases is not limited to simply cutting off the stone. In addition, the surgeon puts the joints in place, fixes them in the right position, aligns the deformed foot.
In any case, if you have bumps on your legs,treatment should be started only after consulting with an orthopedic physician and determining the cause of their occurrence. A general recommendation is to wear comfortable shoes, in proper nutrition and daily routine. You can not abuse alcohol, you must avoid various injuries to the feet and legs.
