Rheumatoid Arthritis and OsteoArthritis what works

Arthritis comes in several forms. The most active are rheumatoid arthritis which seems to be caused by the body attacking its own joints and Osteoarthritis a condition caused by wear where the bones and cartilage deteriorate and the bones rub together causing pain.

Arthritis damage is visible in x-rays, MRI and other imaging sources

Inflammation is present in both kinds of arthritis and because of the swelling and soreness is the source of most of the pain. Research continues into cures and remedies for both kinds of arthritis.

There are a few rules that will help you control the pain…try to use natural relief instead of medication and surgery. Ice is great to use to relive pain. Sometimes heat will work. It is a matter of try and see.

Keep your weight down, if already overweight and suffering from knee or hip arthritis, consider water exercise in the pool to keep your joints working as much as possible. I personally use the hot tub first, then the pool when my hip begins to hurt really bad. The hot and cold seems to relieve the pain better than pills. Try 5 minutes in the hot tub, 10 minutes in the pool and repeat several times always ending up in the pool to cool down.

Even if you hurt, it is important to keep moving. When you stay active it helps keep your joints open and working. Do as much as you can, when you can and after a few days you should be able to do more. If you stop moving it is like the ice age has moved into your joints and you get to the place where you can’t move.

Stretching helps, even seated in a chair or recliner. Take a few minutes each hour to extend legs, pointing toes and making circles and do the same with your arms and hands. This is a gentle form of exercise but it will help.

Do some research into the types of enzymes and herbs that are beneficial in reducing inflammation. Be careful in in using herbs as some people have allergic reactions to them, so start off slowly.

Most important, keep researching, reading and educating yourself about arthritis. What works for someone else may help you.
