Arthritis, a common condition, represents all joint diseases or joint pains. There are over 100 forms of arthritis, and a shocking number of 50 million adults in the United States of America suffer from different kinds. This condition is commonly experienced by women, and mostly in aged people. The highest cases of disability are caused by arthritis with osteoarthritis being the most common disease. It is also referred to as a degenerative joint disease, as it involves the degeneration of the soft tissue found between the joints.
When cartilage wears away, the bone rub against each other, thus causing swelling, pain, and stiffness. The joints eventually lose strength as the pain continuously increases. As there is no particular cure for this condition, it is possible to manage the pains. Factors that result in osteoarthritis condition include age, excessive weight, previous injury, and also family history. As stated before, this condition does not have a cure. Therefore, there are strategies that have implemented so as to achieve maximum relief, success, and good health. These strategies involve constant exercise, medical treatments, and also a healthy daily routine.
On the exercise category, it is important to involve oneself in physical activity so as to manage the pain as well as the loss of mobility that could be associated with arthritis. Also, engage in activities that are focused on building the muscles that are located around the joints. On a daily routine, take the initiative to stretch and do some gentle exercise right before getting into bed.
Ensure that you walk for at least for 30 minutes, or more each day. Also, avoid smoking as it increases the damage of the connective tissues, making you weaker. For the medications, speak to your doctor and let them recommend the most appropriate medication for you. This is because medications that provide arthritis pain relief often have side effects when consumed for a long period.
