Joint Disease

Simply put, arthritis is joint disease. Any and every joint can be affected by arthritis. Whether it's inflammation, stiffness, daily wear and tear or general pain, this affliction can severely hamper your ability to do the most simplest of tasks. People with arthritis can have trouble just opening a bag of chips or turning a light switch on and off.

Arthritis usually affects older people, since advanced age can bring about limited abilities, but it can affect people at any age. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, and this joint disease is in part due to age. Other problems can follow with the onset of arthritis, such as muscle aches, lack of sleep, inability to exercise and more.

While there is no treatment for arthritis, there are general therapies to have better joint care. Small exercises, such as moving your fingers back and forth, can increase activity and help relieve pain. The more you can make these movements in affected areas, the better your flexibility as well as ability to hold back pain. You can turn to aspirin, too, for treatment. This kind of reliever is more of a slight buffer, but nonetheless can give you some peace of mind that your life does not have to be controlled by such pain.

It is best to have a holistic approach when dealing with arthritis. As it is a common problem with older age, a great way to keep the affliction to a minimum is better diet. Fruits and vegetables can better provide nutrients to ward off pain, as well as decrease future inflammation.
