There are more than 30 joints in the foot and 26 bones which are held by tough band of ligaments, muscles and tendons. Together these provide smooth controlled motion to the organ necessary for walking well. Arthritis can restrict such movements and cause inflammation, pain and swelling of the joints. Most people suffering from RA or joint pain take pain killers to get rid of stiff ankles or they are advised to wear specific type soft shoes or those with rigid heels to relieve foot pain.
Some go for surgery to get rid of stiff ankles where replacement of the ankle joints is done. Sometimes, the condition of muscle pain and fibromyalgia can cause such pains which can be triggered by environment, foods (e.g. high gluten foods) or change in thyroid flow. Such pains can aggravate when one exercises and induce a vicious cycle where the person suffers from sleep disturbance and is unable to relax. These conditions reduce energy levels and efficiency.
Massage is the method based on manipulation of body skin layers and connective tissues and the use of proper herbal oils can help in the elimination of sore joint problems, stiffness, while improving the range of motions to relieve foot pain and also get rid of stiff ankles. The application of moderate to light pressure can stimulate pressure receptors and it conveys the brain the message to alleviate pain, whilst producing stress reducing chemicals in brain. Such relaxation techniques can help in reducing blood pressure and stress. Every day the method of self-massage can reduce pain and stiffness of RA as it reduces blockages in blood flow to the extremities.
The method of pressure along with Orthoxil Plus capsules and Orthoxil Plus oil can stimulate the blood flow and relieve foot pain. The herb Vitis Quadrangularis in the foot and ankle pain herbal treatment increases basal secretion of IGF receptors where the increase is more than 50 percent during SaOS-2 osteoblasts. Both mineralization and mineral nodule formation was observed (the results were concentration dependent) with the intake of the water extract of the herb.
Proliferation of osteoblasts was attributed to osteogenic activities of the herb and this resembled the properties of Vitex negundo, one of the other ingredients in the herbal arthritis supplements Orthoxil Plus capsules and Orthoxil Plus oil. The regular intake of the herb Vitis Quadrangularis increased collagen synthesis where the increase was up to 106 percent over baseline and this was related to increase in osteoblasts. These herbs have bone healing properties and are widely known as bone settler. Study show these were effective in improving painful conditions in humans suffering from mandibular fractures and could get rid of stiff ankles. The improvement in the level of fracture and pain is due to suppression of corticosteroid signalling. It preserves bone tissue and promotes osteoblastic differentiation and proliferation.
