Understanding arthritis

Arthritis: navigating joint pain and stiffness


Arthritis, often associated with joint pain and stiffness, is a condition that can significantly impact your daily life.

It's not just a single disease; it encompasses more than 100 types, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

This condition can be particularly challenging for sufferers, as it often interferes with work and family life.

Medical interventions can sometimes be frustrating, with treatments focusing more on managing symptoms rather than providing a cure.

Home remedies for arthritis

Treating arthritis at home


Gentle Exercise

While staying active might seem counter-intuitive, gentle exercise like walking or swimming can actually help. 

But remember, overdoing it can worsen symptoms.

Heat and Cold Therapy

Traditional advice often includes ice packs, but using heat can feel more comforting and be just as effective for many people without the discomfort that is often caused by ice. 

Over the Counter Medication

Anti-inflammatories and pain killers are common, but the relief they offer is temporary and prolonged use can have side effects.
