What Is Arthritis?

pain relief for arthritis

AROUND 10 million people in the UK suffer every day with the symptoms of arthritis that causes pain and inflammation in a joint.

The two most common types are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis affects 33% of people aged over 45, making it the most common form of arthritis. The condition is caused when wear and tear to the joints stops them being able to move freely, leading to pain and inflammation.

Often called “wear and tear” arthritis, osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of the disease. In OA, joint cartilage breaks down over time, causing symptoms like joint pain and stiffness.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

RA is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks joint tissue, causing inflammation of the joint lining leading to joint pain, stiffness and swelling. Over time, the joint components are damaged and the condition worsens. About 400,000 people in the UK are affected, with three times as many women as men diagnosed.

Medication is needed to control the symptoms of arthritis such as pain, and to prevent further complications.

Unfortunately, there is no cure for arthritis but there are treatments which can help to slow the condition down. Also, there are things YOU can do to help with the symptoms!

  1. Watch your weight! As we get older we tend to put weight on, and this puts extra stresses on our joints. A healthy diet is essential!

  2. Do Some Exercise! The key to preventing arthritis is maintaining strength in our muscles.  We need to keep our muscles as healthy and strong to help with daily movements such as getting out of the chair, opening jars and getting in and out of the bath!

  3. Keep warm! Heat treatments, such as heating pads or warm baths, tend to work best for soothing stiff joints and tired muscles. Heat enhances circulation, delivering nutrients to joints and muscles. It’s good for getting your body limber and ready for exercise or activity. Cold is best for acute pain; it restricts blood vessels, slowing circulation and reducing swelling. It also numbs nerve endings, dulling pain.
