Arthritis Cuases and Treatment

Arthritis can be defined as joint inflammation. It’s a health  disorder which can affects joints and also other parts of body. Arthritis is a combination of two Greek words which are athron and itis. Athron means joints and itis means inflammation.

Arthritis may lead to very bad health complications. In the initial stages whole body gets involved in it and after some time one or more joints may completely deformed and it may also make the patient handicapped. Mostly this affects joints and bones.

Arthritis can be divided into various types but I am going to divide it into three parts. Redness, swelling, stiffness and pain are the common symptoms of all three types of arthritis.

The first type of arthritis is Rheumatoid Arthritis. This type of arthritis affects toes, knees, wrists, joints etc. This arthritis may deform all body joints.

Second type of arthritis is Osteoarthritis. It can affect any joint of your body but mostly this type of arthritis affects feet, spine, hips and knees.

Third type of arthritis is Gout. It affects big toes and lower limbs. It’s very painful. Even you can feel pain from bed sheets and shocks.

Mostly arthritis happens to the people having age group of 40 plus. Women get more affected by this problem than men. Three times more women are suffering from this problem than men.

The major causes of arthritis are over weight, physical stress, imbalanced diet, nutrition deficiency, hormonal changes etc.

There are so many remedies for the treatment of arthritis. I am going to discuss some of the major remedies:

The best home remedy for arthritis is to wrap red flannel around the joint and leave it through the whole night.

A gentle massage with luke warm oil is very effective for relieve.

In the winter season the best home remedy I have ever seen is steam bath and body massage in sunshine. Sunlight is also an energy source for joints in the winter season.
