Herbal Remedies for Arthritis
Arthritis and Joint Pain
Arthritis manifests itself most commonly as joint pain, stiffness and swelling. Joint pain can be hip pain, knee pain, hand pain, wrist pain, as well as joint pain in other areas of the body. Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis are the most common forms of arthritis.
Osteoarthritis (OA)is generally believed to be caused by wear and tear to the bone cartilage. It commonly affects the joints of the fingers, knees, hips, and spine. Joints of the wrists, elbows, shoulders, and ankles can also be affected but is usually due to an injury or unusual stress to that joint. Cartilage cushions the bone ends in a joint and allow it to move smoothly. When cartilage breaks down, the ends of the bones thicken and the joint may lose its normal shape. As cartilage further deteriorates, the ends of the bones may begin to rub together causing pain. In addition, damaged joint tissue can cause the release of certain substances called prostaglandins, which can also contribute to the pain and swelling.
Osteoarthritis Risk Factors:
Osteoarthritis affects 21 million adults in the US alone.
Rheumatoid Arthritis causes inflammation of the joint lining, which can lead to pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of function. It also can cause inflammation of tear glands, salivary glands, the lining of your heart and lungs, and the lungs themselves.Rheumatoid Arthritis can also cause rheumatoid nodules which may form under the skin of the elbow, hands, the back of the scalp, over the knee, or on the feet and heels. They are generally painless and can be as small as a pea to as large as a walnut.
RA is an autoimmune disease. This means the body's natural immune system attacks healthy joint tissue, initiating a process of inflammation and joint damage.
General symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis include:
