Arthritis is a common condition that causes pain and inflammation (swelling) of the joints and bones. Almost in all cases of Arthritis, there is a source of infection which leads to toxins which is responsible for Arthritis.The main symptoms of arthritis include:


  • Pain
  • Stiffness
  • Restricted movements of the joints
  • Inflammation and swelling
  • Warmth and redness of the skin over the joint



The most common forms of arthritis are:


In people affected by osteoarthritis, the cartilage (connective tissue) between their bones gradually wastes away (degenerates), leading to painful rubbing of bone on bone in the joints. The most frequently affected joints are in the:


  • hands
  • spine
  • knees
  • hips

Osteoarthritis often develops in people who are over 50 years of age. However, it can develop at any age as a result of an injury or another joint-related condition.
The cause of osteoarthritis is not fully understood. One theory is that some people are genetically predisposed to developing osteoarthritis, which means that they have an increased likelihood of inheriting it from their parents. However, this theory has not yet been proven.


Rheumatoid arthritis:-

Rheumatoid arthritis is a more severe, but less common, form of arthritis than osteoarthritis. It occurs when the body's immune system attacks and destroys the affected joints, causing pain and swelling to occur. This can lead to a reduction in movement and the breakdown of bone and cartilage.
Rheumatoid arthritis is caused by a fault in the immune system (the body’s natural defence against illness and infection) that makes the body attack its own tissues. The fault may be inherited genetically (passed on from a family member).


Coping with arthritis:-

There are things that you can do to manage your condition, ease your symptoms and improve your quality of life. For example:

  • Controlling your weight can help to ease pressure on joints.
  • Avoiding stress or injury to your joints can help to prevent or reduce the severity of osteoarthritis.
  • Good posture can strengthen healthy joint structure.
  • Physiotherapy and use of a walking stick or cane can help prevent worsening of existing conditions.
  • Weight-bearing exercise, such as walking, will help to prevent osteoarthritis by increasing the strength of muscles that support your joints. It's not true that avoiding exercise will help reduce joint problems in later life.
