Arthritis

Arthritis causes pain and inflammation in a joint and it is a common condition.

In the UK, around 10 million people have arthritis. It affects people of all ages, including children.

Osteoarthritis arthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis are the two most common types of arthritis.

 

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis in the UK, affecting around 8 million people.

It often develops in the over 50’s. However, it can occur at any age as a result of an injury or another joint-related condition.

Initially Osteoarthritis affects the smooth cartilage lining of the joint, making movement more difficult than usual, leading to pain and stiffness.

In joints with Osteoarthritis, the joint cartilage (connective tissue)  becomes thin, damaged and worn, causing the bone in the joints to rub together This can lead to swelling and the bone tissue next to the cartilage can also be affected and bony spurs can develop around the edges. These spurs are called osteophytes and may be seen on X-rays.

The joints that are most commonly affected are those in the hands, spine, knees and hips.

 

Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis affects more than 400,000 people in the UK. It often starts between  the age of 40 to 50 and women are three times more likely to be affected than men.

Rheumatoid Osteoarthritis occurs when the body's immune system targets affected joints, leading to pain and swelling. 

In people with Rheumatoid arthritis, antibodies are formed against the synovium (the tissue that surrounds each joint). This causes inflammation in and around affected joints. Over time the inflammation can damage the joint, the cartilage, parts of the bone near to the joint and there can be a change in the joint’s shape.

The joints that are most commonly affected are the fingers, thumbs, wrists, feet, and the ankles.

 

Treating arthritis

There is no cure for arthritis, however there are many treatments which can help to slow down the condition.

For Osteoarthritis, painkillers, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories and corticosteroids are often prescribed.

In severe cases, the following surgical procedures may be recommended:

  • arthroplasty (joint replacement)
  • arthodesis (joint fusion)
  • osteotomy (where a bone is cut and re-aligned)

For Rheumatoid Arthritis, the aim is to slow down the progress of this condition and minimise damage to the joints. The following treatments may be recommended:

  • analgesics (painkillers)
  • disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs
  • physiotherapy
  • regular exercise

 

Joint care

It is important to look after your joints if you have arthritis, so that you can try to prevent any further damage. Try to reduce the stress on your joints when you carry out everyday tasks such as moving and lifting. 

Use your shoulder instead of your hand when opening a heavy door to take the pressure off. Try using both hands to carry your shopping, or distribute the weight evenly in a rucksack or shoulder bag and try not to grip things too tightly, grip as loosely as you can.

It's also important to avoid sitting in the same position for long periods of time and to take regular breaks so you can move around.

***** This is good stuff!
By Justme

Penetrex really does work! I've tried many remedies for severe arthritis in my knee and ankle. Some heat, some cool, some numb for a while; most smell bad or at least medicinal, but Penetrex actually reduces the pain and inflammation and makes my aching joints feel better. I've been using this wonderful cream for nearly a year once (or occasionally twice) a day and I'm honestly not sure I could get along without it. The scent is a pleasant light mint which dissipates quickly and absorbs completely as you rub it into skin so there is no residue on clothing or sheets. I recently shared a jar with a dear friend who suffered for over a month with shoulder pain from overexercising and kayaking. Penetrex worked very well for him, too, and after only a week he was thrilled to be able to pick up his grandkids again. This is good stuff! Hope it works for you, too.

***** Works great! No more knee pain!

My wife was having a lot of knee pain from arthritis. She used this as directed, and the pain is gone. This is a great solution for joint pain.
