Physical Therapist or Physiotherapist 's  Response
Hello,

I understand that the patient has too much pains at the joints which are weight bearing in nature. usually the injection given in between the particulars for reducing the pain. Also, there is nothing like a gas in the joint. In fact, there is not sufficient space in between the articular surface to have gas in the joints. There will be restricted joint movement and the patient might feel some gas restricting the movements but with regular exercise this problem can be resolved.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Jay Indravadan Patel, Physical Therapist or Physiotherapist
