OSTEOARTHRITIS

The symptom of pain, swelling or stiffness with limited joint movement is called Arthritis. The term Arthritis is non-specific. It does not correspond to any specific disease by itself. It simply denotes the symptoms.

The two most prevalent kinds of arthritis are Rheumatoid Arthritis & Osteoarthritis. It is also called degenerative arthritis. In a normal healthy person, a joint surface is covered with cartilage, which provides padding in the joints thereby acting as a smooth cushioning material inside joints and preventing bones from rubbing together.  However, with the progress of the age and extensive use of joints, often with wrong postures or burdened with obesity, the joint cartilage gets damaged and starts to wear out completely; leaving the bone ends with unprotected and causing painful joints.

The joints that carry the body’s weight are most likely to develop Osteoarthritis. Most commonly affected areas are knee joints, vertebral joints in the neck and lower back. However, finger joints near the nails and a joint called ‘1st carpometacarpal joint’ in the hands are the most common sites of Osteoarthritis.

Osteoarthritis occasionally can be found in multiple members of the same family, implying a genetic basis of the condition. Rarely, some of these hereditary cases of Osteoarthritis are caused by defects in collagen, which is an important component of cartilage.

Through the combination of Classical Homoeopathy, Botanical Formulations and Internationally Acclaimed Advanced Physiotherapy, the pain of Osteoarthritis can be reduced effectively and rejuvenation of the affected areas begins.
