Arthritis – Take It Under Control and Get Your Life Back!

Arthritis – Take It Under Control and Get Your Life Back!

Health News

By Dennys Passeto

Red, burning, swollen and so stiff you don’t want to move…that’s what those who suffer from arthritis experience on a daily basis. If you know this all to well, you are probably one of the 46 million Americans (that’s 1 out of every 5 people) that are living with arthritis every day. To better understand how to get relief from this debilitating disease we need to dive deeper into its root cause.

Some of the types of arthritis which are associated with inflammation include:

  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • gout
  • tendinitis
  • bursitis
  • polymyalgia rheumatica

What is Arthritis?

Arthritis painArthritis actually means joint (arthr) inflammation (itis). Arthritis can be used to define a group of more than 100 rheumatic diseases and other conditions that can cause pain, stiffness and swelling in the joints or any part of your body.

Additionally, it can damage the joint cartilage which can lead to joint weakness, instability and visible deformities that can interfere and, in severe cases, limit a person’s ability to perform most basic daily tasks such as walking, climbing stairs, using a computer keyboard, washing dishes or brushing your teeth.

Arthritis can affect anyone regardless of age and most commonly affects joints in the knees, hips, hands and spine. If left undiagnosed and not treated properly, arthritis can cause irreversible damage to the joints, bones, organs, and skin. Not to mention dramatically impair your quality of life.

Arthritis-related conditions primarily affect the muscles and the bones but it is also considered to 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 sites two independent studies (Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota) both of which prove that the widespread inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis is linked to heart disease and an increased risk of early death.

No one really knows the exact cause of arthritis but there are certain risk factors to keep in mind:

  • Genetics – likely to contribute to risk but no one knows how much.
  • Age – the older you are the more at risk you become.
  • Weight – maintaining a healthy weight will ease the load on the joints.
  • Previous Injury – major injuries are likely to contribute the risk.
  • Occupational Hazards – repetitive, high demand jobs increase risk.
  • Certain Sports – high level, high demand sports can contribute to arthritis (however, general exercise is always a plus)
  • Illness or infection – an infection in the joint or gout can lead to arthritis.

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 this condition.

Sadly enough, the Arthritis Foundation reports that half of those Americans with arthritis don’t believe anything can be done to help ease their pain. You may be in that situation yourself, having thrown your hands up in frustration and simply decided to live with your pain. The good news is that by reducing the inflammation you can significantly ease the painful symptoms associated with arthritis.

YogaHere are a few ways to reduce your inflammation:

  • Exercise – less weight equals less stress on joints
  • Diet – Eat plenty of vegetables, fruits and whole-grain products; limit sugar, salt and fat (especially saturated fat found in animal products)
  • Rest – a good balance between rest and activity is the key to joint health Over-the-counter and prescription medications – while these may provide temporary relief by masking the pain they are not always get to the root of the problem – inflammation. They can also    have serious side effects, especially with long-term use.
  • Natural anti-inflammatory supplements – probably the most promising natural approach to reducing inflammation in a long while. We recommend looking for supplements containing systemic    enzymes and all-natural herbal ingredients.

By taking these simple steps to reducing inflammation you will be well on your way to managing your arthritis pain and it devastating effects on your mind and body. Everyone should strive to achieve a healthy and active lifestyle for optimal health and well being.
