Arthritis and joint pain: symptoms, treatment and prevention

Arthritis and joint pain: symptoms, treatment and prevention


There are two broad categories of arthritis
– inflammatory and osteoarthritis, and they all have individual sub-features. Rheumatoid
arthritis has particular features – it affects the small joints of the hands. For example,
gout may affect peripheral joints, but it can have other distributions too, ankylosing spondylitis
may affect the back, and some peripheral joints, and osteoarthritis tends to affect more the
large joints but also the small joints in the tips of the fingers. They can be interchangeable,
so osteoarthritis can have inflammatory components, and rheumatoid arthritis can go on to have
osteoarthritis changes. Fortunately there are very clearly defined ways of assessing
patients both clinically and in terms of different investigations to determine the form and type
of arthritis each individual has – and we also have very many effective treatments which
can be tailored to that individual, to help reduce the symptoms or to get them into remission,
and in some cases into drug free remission. Arthritis sometimes may have no symptoms,
only have some clues in the blood tests and other investigations that we might be doing,
but often the cardinal symptoms are: pain and swelling, stiffness, and difficulty with
movement or function and disability generally. There can also be systemic features so not
the joints, but other parts of the body might be affected, such as the lungs or kidneys,
or muscles. The key features as far as the joints are concerned are pain and swelling. If
there is any swelling that’s a high probability of inflammation or infection or something
significant with the joint, and the individual should be assessed. It really should be
looked at as a medical emergency because having any symptoms leads to loss of function, which
then takes a huge amount of effort to recover and to improve. So it’s best to prevent progression
and get timely treatment – we’re going to be covering treatment later on – but if we
delay treatment, conditions are less responsive, and may not be as effective, and so it’s really
important that the treatment is carried out as early as possible with the appropriate
drugs. Fortunately there are several different treatment
approaches in arthritis that have been proven to be effective. We can broadly categorise
them into non-drug, drug, and surgical. The aim of all treatment should be to eradicate
the symptoms, and to restore function, and if we treat early and if we treat appropriately,
we should be able to achieve that in the majority of cases – and in some cases, we are even
able to achieve drug-free remission, drug-free and symptom free, and restore the individual
back to their former health. The range of option that we might have in broad categories:
there’s non-drug, such as nutrition, exercise, physiotherapy – of the drug treatments there
are a number of different agents, and they can be administered in a range of different
ways such as tablets, creams, infusions or injections into a given joint, and of the
surgical approaches, maybe keyhole surgery or open joint surgery. All of these treatments
used appropriately can help significantly or fully control symptoms, and restore function,
and hopefully prevent progression of the condition. Our understanding of arthritis and the risk
factors has improved significantly – there are a number of genetic factors that cannot
be changed – but there are also some lifestyle factors that can be altered, and the risk
of developing arthritis reduced, such as smoking, alcohol, diet, exercise can have a role to
play. But it’s important to bear in mind that if you do have any symptoms, to seek help
early – even such a thing as a tennis elbow or a symptom related to a given one joint
can have an impact on the related structures and lead to muscle wasting, and lead to some
loss of function or disability, and reduce your energy and your productivity. Treatment
early is more effective than waiting for a period of time before you have treatment,
or some degree of disability has set in. So we would advise you to seek help early to
be fully assessed and have adequate treatment to help reduce the symptoms and to prevent
any progression, and hopefully get to a point where you are symptom-free and you don’t need
any ongoing treatment.

  3. 3. NATURAL KNEE PAIN: I Challenge Worldwide Medical Scientists & Doctors
    All existing treatments for this disease in all fields are untruthful, non-curing and only treatment business. I am an Electrical Engineer. I challenge worldwide Medical Scientists and Doctors. Already informed WHO / Govt. of India / Govt. of Kerala many times that cause of Knee Pain is lack of certain food minerals at Knee location and giving that food mineral for 40 days the disease will be cured absolutely. If the Govt. is utilizing this method, the patients will get absolute remedy with a few cost, stopping the existing treatment business robbing patients. There is no need of any medicine. Very simple.
    1. NATURAL KNEE PAIN: ABSOLUTE REMEDY WITHIN 40 DAYS. No cheating. Only Certain Food Supplement is Needed. No treatment, medicine, operation, doctor or hospital.
    I have clearly invented the reason and absolute remedy for Knee Pain within exact 40 days very earlier. The reason for Knee Pain is the lack of necessary food minerals for the smooth function at Knee Location. The absolute remedy is assured giving a food supplement (actual required minerals) for 40 days, from 2005, without any treatment, medicine, operation, doctor or hospital. Thousands of patients including operation advised from Govt. Medical Colleges have been cured. (Other diseases absolutely cured using food supplement are Disc Pain & Neck Pain within 40 days. By food control; Piles & Peptic Ulcer within 10 days, Diabetic within 40 days). The secrecy of Food Supplement Formula / Food Control Formula will be handed over to interested large scale manufactures / parties on specific conditions. My clear contact address is here:

  4. Doctors Joel Wallach, Joseph Mercola, Katherine Poehlman, Kurt Woeller, McPherson Brown, Lonnie Herman, and Joel Fuhrman, discuss eliminating Mycoplasma Bacteria to help relieve the pain caused by Rheumatoid Arthritis, right here on YouTube.

  5. My uncle was suffering from joint pain since long and took many medicines but got no permanent relief from this problem. Then he tried Joint Support Pack of "Planet Ayurveda.
    It was very effective and he gets recovered day by day. Thanks to "Planet Ayurveda".

  6. I've suffered since I was 7 and I'm now 34. Obviously I'm getting worse but half of this is doctors changing roles and not receiving meds on time so I'm on the usual steriods but now with children i worry more as I can feel I'm really not good and this can lead to stress, short fused but more on bad day's. It's depressing and painful. After not receiving meds for two months about 3 years ago my heath went downhill fast and I've never really recovered so would be nice for some miracle lol! Arthritus can change over night!

  7. Didn't tell you what you need to do. (useless) – probably wants you to contact him so he can charge you money for the advice.
