Reduce and Eliminate the Pain
If you are familiar with this by personal experience, you may be one of the 46 million Americans (that's 1 out of every 5) that are living with arthritis every day.
To better understand how to get relief from this debilitating disease we need to look more closely at its root causes.
Some of the types of arthritis which are associated with inflammation include:
What is Inflammatory Arthritis?
Arthritis actually means inflammation (itis) of the joints (arthr) and can include a great variety of joint problems. The term refers to a group of more than 100 rheumatic diseases and other conditions that can cause pain, stiffness and swelling in the joints or other parts of your body. It can also damage the joint cartilage and lead to joint weakness, instability and visible deformities that can interfere your ability to perform basic daily tasks. If simple things like walking, climbing stairs, using a computer keyboard, washing dishes or brushing your teeth causes you pain, you know from your own experience. Arthritis can affect anyone regardless of age and most commonly affects joints in the knees, hips, hands and spine. If not treated properly, inflammatory arthritis can irreversibly damage joints, bones, organs, and skin. Of course. It also dramatically impairs your quality of life.
Inflammatory arthritis refers to conditions that involve the immune system and inflammation in the joints. In osteoarthritis there is inflammation because the articular cartilage on the ends of bones has been worn away. In rheumatoid arthritis, there is inflammation in the joint lining. Inflammatory arthritis stiffness and pain usually is felt early in the morning and after prolonged sitting. This is different from degenerative arthritis, in which the pain worsens later in the day and with activity.
Arthritis-related conditions primarily affect the muscles and bones but it is may also be systemic, affecting the whole body. Arthritis can cause damage to any bodily organ or system, including the lungs, kidneys, blood vessels, skin and even the heart. The Arthritis Foundation cites independent studies by Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston and The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota both of which prove that the widespread inflammation of rheumatoid arthritis is linked to heart disease and an increased risk of early death.
No one really knows all the causative factors behind arthritis but there are certain risk factors to keep in mind:
What we do know is that, when you have arthritis, your immune system goes into over-drive and causes the joints to swell and become inflamed. Therefore, treating the inflammation becomes key in managing the pain and discomfort associated with inflammatory arthritis.
