Arthritis is a condition that causes pain and inflammation in a joint. Around 10 million people suffer with the condition in the UK, including children. It most often develops in adults who are in their late 40s or older. It’s also more common in women and people with a family history of the condition. However, it can occur at any age as a result of an injury or be associated with other joint-related conditions, such as gout or rheumatoid arthritis.
The mainstream’s approach to treating arthritis is to prescribe powerful painkillers that only shield the painful symptoms associated with the condition. Few mainstream therapies focus on repairing the damaged joint cartilage or combating the inflammation associated with arthritis. So, what are you alternatives? Can the condition be treated without having to resort to taking powerful painkillers and steroid injections on a regular basis? The Daily Health will help you find answers to all these questions and much, much more.
