The word rheumatic means aches and pains in muscles, bones and joints. Two of the most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
Although arthritis affects seniors the most, it can affect people of all ages, including children. The cause of arthritis is not clear and there is no cure at present.
Arthritis is painful and prevents us from leading active, healthy lifestyles. It’s important to understand what causes the pain so that you can manage it. There are several factors contributing to your pain such as:
Age – Age is an important factor as you are more likely to experience chronic pain. The most common type of arthritis known as osteoarthritis is age-related. Osteoarthritis is more likely to develop in older people than the young, although there some exceptions.
Genetic predisposition – Your genes can either make you more sensitive to pain or more tolerant towards pain. Hence, different people react differently for similar condition.
Gender – Women are prone to chronic pain disorders more often than men. They are also more pain sensitive than men. They experience pain more severely and longer than men.
Personality traits – Your ability to endure hardship combined with cheerfulness, self-confidence and sense of humour can make a difference on how you experience pain.
Social isolation – Sometimes pain can cause people to move away and isolate themselves. This is because they believe they have lost their independence. Such isolation can compound your pain.
Spiritual beliefs – Faith, they say, can move mountains and it certainly can play an important role in how you manage pain.
Finally, it’s not only important to understand your pain but also how to manage it. Although there is no cure for arthritis, turmeric, garlic and ginger have anti-inflammatory properties that may help decrease symptoms of arthritis. Maintain a food dairy and find out if certain food aggravates the symptoms and pain. Come up with a diet plan that is anti-inflammatory and reduces pain. Contact us for more information.
