Arthritis is the inflammation of a joint or joints of the body. The inflammation occurs when the autoimmune system is affected, and it attacks the joints instead of repairing the body, hence the ligaments and tendons in the joints become inflamed. There are many types of arthritis, and this depends on the causes, but the most common ones are rheumatoid arthritis, which is an autoimmune disorder and osteoarthritis which happens when the cartilage wears down. The common symptoms of arthritis are stiffness, joint pain, and swellings of the affected joints. The symptoms are mostly noticed in the morning after they have rested the bones the whole night. The treatment of arthritis varies as one can visit a doctor and also use natural herbal medicines and ways.
The natural ways that you can use when you have arthritis will help one to reduce the pain, inflammation, and stiffness. Some of the best natural ways include:
Exercises are important for our daily lives, and they are great for arthritis patients. Exercises help control the amount of weight that you have, lubricates the joints, and strengthens the joint muscles hence you can move around easily. When you are not exercising, the synovial fluid in the joints turns and becomes a thick gel, hence makes the joint stiff, but exercising makes the fluid viscous hence the joints become lubricated. You don’t have to exercise much, but can take a walk for about 15-30minutes each day, do joint exercise or stretches to help get rid of the stiffness and also cycle.
