The ins and outs of arthritis
Did you know that arthritis means ‘joint inflammation’? There are many types of arthritis, like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and gout. But all of these types share common symptoms - swelling, pain and stiffness – and they can cause short and long-term misery for sufferers.
What is arthritis?
Inflammation that accompanies arthritis is the result of the body’s reaction to disease and injury. And, when inflammation occurs over a long period of time, this can lead to arthritis and resulting tissue damage. The inflammation commonly occurs around a joint, which can make movement difficult with swelling and stiffness.
How can you relieve arthritic pain?
Arthritic pain can be relieved through a mixture of anti-inflammatory oral or topical medication, or physical therapy remedies. However, more serious types of arthritis need more advanced medical attention so if you feel like your joint inflammation is more serious, you need to consult a doctor. For fast, temporary relief, try an anti-inflammatory oral remedy with ibuprofen from the Nurofen range.
