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)
1. Osteoarthritis
2. Gout
3. Rheumatoid Arthritis
4. Polymalagia Arthritis
5. Cervical myleopathy and spinal canal stenosis
6. Osteoporosis
7. Low back pain
8. Fibromyalgia

                      Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis is defined a chronic disorder as a result of inflammation, affecting mostly the flexible (synovial) joints and tissues and organs in the body. The disease affects more women than men and generally occurs after the ages of 40, causing diminished quality of life of many elders(1). According to CDC, Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) affects over 52 millions of adults in the US alone, including 294,000 children under age 18 with some form of arthritis or rheumatic conditions(2). Rheumatoid Arthritis can induced bone loss through elevating bone resorption without increasing bone formation(4). A cross-sectional population-based study of 1042 patients with rheumatoid arthritis showed that RA patients had an increased risk of death from various causes(4a).

B.4. The Important supplements for rheumatoid arthritis
1. Glucosamine
Glucosamine, a compound of the simple sugar glucose and the amino acid glutamine, is a precursor for glycosaminoglycans(194,289), a major component of joint cartilage(195,290). In a randomized placebo-controlled study of 51 rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients: 25 patients in the glucosamine group and 26 patients in the placebo group, Glucosamine hydrochloride at a daily dose of 1,500 mg showed to improve some symptomatic effects on RA(291).
The orally administered combination of a glucosamine-chondroitin-quercetin glucoside (GCQG) supplement also exerted a special effect on improving the synovial fluid properties in OA patients, according to the Matsuno Clinic for Rheumatic Diseases(292). Furthermore, a novel glucosamine analogue also showed to inhibit the development of RA through exerting antioxidative and immunomodulatory effects(293).

2. Omega 3 fatty acids
Omega-3 fatty acids found abundantly in cold water fish, algae and seeds and nuts of plant has shown to exhibit the prevention of different pathologies, such as cardiovascular, psychiatric, neurological, dermatological and rheumatological disorders(297), including RA. Dr. Shafaghat A said," The hexane extract from the flower, leaf, stem, and seed contained 39.1%, 43.2%, 29.0%, and 37.6% of omega-3 fatty acids, ... possess considerable antioxidant activity(298) of that may be helpful in attenuate the oxidative stress in induction of RA.
Dr. Jeromson S. and the research team at the University of Stirling suggested that Omega 3 fatty acid also plays an essential role in Skeletal Muscle Health(299) in inhibition of pro inflammatory cytokines(300) which has a direct influence to the onset of rheumatoid arthritis.
In Rheumatoid Arthritis, omega-3 fatty acid supplementation improved physical functioning, physical role, bodily pain, general health, vitality, social functioning, grip strength, morning stiffness, comparison to the effectiveness of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in patient of rheumatoid arthritis(301).
