Arthritis is a term often used to mean any disorder that affects joints. The term is derived from arthr meaning joint and itis meaning inflammation. Symptoms generally include joint pain and stiffness. Other symptoms may include redness, warmth, swelling, and decreased the range of motion of the affected joints. Other organs are also affected in some other arthritis. Each year, arthritis results in nearly 1 million hospitalizations and close to 45 million outpatient visits to health care centers. Taking into consideration the huge expenditure, Siddha Spirituality of Swami Hardas Life System has brought out unique remedies to overcome problems of arthritis, without money and medicines. Hence, let us know arthritis in detail with its types, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatments in Medical science, Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Home remedies, as well as Free Siddha energy remedies, without money and medicines.
There are over 100 types of arthritis. The most common forms are:
- Osteoarthritis: Osteoarthritis usually occurs with age and affects the fingers, knees, and hips.
- Rheumatoid arthritis: Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder that often affects the hands and feet.
- Other types: Gout, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, and Septic arthritis.
Osteoarthritis affects more than 3.8% of people while Rheumatoid arthritis affects about 0.24% of people. Gout affects about 1–2% of the Western population at some point in their lives.
In Australia, about 15% of people are affected, while in the United States more than 20% have a type of arthritis. Overall the disease becomes more common with age. Arthritis is a common reason that people miss work and can result in a decreased quality of life.
The total cost of arthritis cases, as estimated, is close to $100 billion of which almost 50% is from lost earnings.
Pain, which can vary in severity, is a common symptom in virtually all types of arthritis. Other symptoms include swelling, joint stiffness and aching around the joint(s). Arthritic disorders like Lupus and Rheumatoid arthritis can affect other organs in the body, leading to a variety of symptoms. Symptoms may include:
- Inability to use the hand or walk
- Stiffness, which may be worse in the morning, or after use
- Malaise and fatigue
- Weight loss
- Poor sleep
- Muscle aches and pains
- Difficulty moving the joint
It is common in advanced arthritis for significant secondary changes to occur. For example, arthritic symptoms might make it difficult for a person to move around and/or exercise, which can lead to secondary effects, such as:
- Muscle weakness
- Loss of flexibility
- Decreased aerobic fitness
These changes, in addition to the primary symptoms, can have a huge impact on quality of life. Arthritis is the most common cause of disability in the United States.
More than 20 million individuals with arthritis have severe limitations in function on a daily basis. Arthritis can make it very difficult for individuals to be physically active and some become homebound.
Decreased mobility, in combination with the above symptoms, can make it difficult for an individual to remain physically active, contributing to an increased risk of obesity, high cholesterol or vulnerability to heart disease. People with arthritis are also at increased risk of depression, which may be a response to numerous factors, including fear of worsening symptoms.
Diagnosis is made by clinical examination from an appropriate health professional and may be supported by tests such as radiology and blood tests. All arthritides potentially feature pain.
Rheumatoid arthritis is generally worse in the morning and associated with stiffness lasting over 30 minutes. However, in the early stages, patients may have no symptoms after a warm shower. Osteoarthritis, on the other hand, tends to be associated with morning stiffness which eases relatively quickly with movement and exercise.
Elements of the history of the disorder guide diagnosis. Important features are:
- Speed and time of onset
- A pattern of joint involvement
- Asymmetry of symptoms
- Early morning stiffness
- Gelling or locking with inactivity
- Aggravating and relieving factors
- Other systemic symptoms
Physical examination may confirm the diagnosis or may indicate systemic disease.
Radiographs are often used to follow progression or help assess severity.
Blood tests and X-rays of the affected joints often are performed to make the diagnosis.
In certain arthritides, screening blood tests are indicated, which might include:
- A rheumatoid factor
- Antinuclear factor (ANF)
- Extractable nuclear antigen
- Specific antibodies
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It can affect both the larger and the smaller joints of the body, including:
- Hip, and
This is mainly acquired from daily wear and tear of the joint, which can also occur as a result of the injury.
Osteoarthritis begins in the cartilage and eventually causes the two opposing bones to erode into each other. The condition starts with minor pain during physical activity, but soon the pain can be continuous and even occur while in a state of rest. The pain can be debilitating and prevent one from doing some activities.
Osteoarthritis typically affects the weight-bearing joints, such as:
- Knee, and
Osteoarthritis is most commonly a disease of the elderly. More than 30% of women have some degree of Osteoarthritis by age 65. Risk factors for osteoarthritis include prior joint trauma, obesity, and a sedentary lifestyle.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a disorder in which the body’s own immune system starts to attack body tissues. Most damage occurs to the joint lining and cartilage which eventually results in erosion of two opposing bones, which often affects joints in the:
- Knees, and
RA (Rheumatoid arthritis) occurs mostly in people aged 20 and above. In children, the disorder can present with:
- Skin rash
- Disability, and
- Limitations in daily activities
With earlier diagnosis and aggressive treatment, many individuals can lead to a better quality of life than if going undiagnosed for long after RA’s onset.
Bone erosion is a central feature of Rheumatoid arthritis. Bone continuously undergoes remodeling by actions of bone-resorbing osteoclasts and bone-forming osteoblasts.
Lupus is a common collagen vascular disorder that can be present with severe arthritis. Other features of lupus include:
- Skin rash
- Extreme photosensitivity
- Hair loss
- Kidney problems
- Lung fibrosis, and
- Constant joint pain
Gout is caused by deposition of uric acid crystals in the joint, causing inflammation. There is also an uncommon form of gouty arthritis caused by the formation of rhomboid crystals of calcium pyrophosphate known as pseudogout. In the early stages, gouty arthritis usually occurs in one joint, but with time, it can occur in many joints and be quite crippling.
The joints in gout can often become swollen and lose function. Gouty arthritis can become particularly painful and potentially debilitating when gout cannot successfully be treated.
There is no known cure for either Rheumatoid or Osteoarthritis. Treatment options vary depending on the type of arthritis and include:
- Physical therapy
- Lifestyle changes
- Weight control
- Orthopedic bracing
Joint replacement surgery may be required in eroding forms of arthritis. Medications can help reduce inflammation in the joint which decreases pain. Moreover, by decreasing inflammation, the joint damage may be slowed.
In general, studies have shown that physical exercise of the affected joint can noticeably improve long-term pain relief.
Individuals with arthritis can benefit from both physical therapy and occupational therapy, which significantly:
- Improve function
- Decrease pain
- Delay need for surgical intervention in advanced cases
Exercise often focuses on improving muscle strength, endurance, and flexibility. Occupational therapy can provide assistance with activities.
There are several types of medications. For example:
- First-line treatment for Osteoarthritis is Acetaminophen (Paracetamol)
- Inflammatory arthritis involves Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) like Ibuprofen
- Opioids and NSAIDs are less well tolerated.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is autoimmune so, in addition to pain medications and anti-inflammatory drugs, is treated with another category of a drug called Disease-Modifying Antirheumatic Drugs (DMARDs), which act on the immune system to slow down the progression of RA. An example of this type of drug is Methotrexate.
A number of rheumasurgical interventions have been incorporated in the treatment of arthritis since the 1950s. Arthroscopic surgery for osteoarthritis of the knee provides no additional benefit to optimized physical and medical therapy.
Further research is required to determine if Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) for knee osteoarthritis is effective for controlling pain.
Low-level laser therapy may be considered for relief of pain and stiffness associated with arthritis. Evidence of benefit is tentative.
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy has tentative evidence supporting improved functioning but no evidence of improved pain in osteoarthritis. The FDA has not approved PEMF for the treatment.
Arthritis treatment – Ayurveda
Boswellia (Indian Frankincense) and Commiphora Mukul (Guggulu) in the form of capsules taken three times a day can decrease pain. In addition, the herbs may help to decrease inflammation and to strengthen bones and improve flexibility. Triphala herb can help to clean the colon.
Diet modification: Anti-Vata diet should be taken. Avoid hot and spicy food, and other foodstuffs like dairy foods, potato, eggplant cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, okra, potatoes etc. Consume plenty of fruits, fruit Juices, homemade soups, green salads, and green vegetables.
Massage: Hot baths, compresses or massage with massage oils such as Almond oil, Sesame oil is beneficial in arthritic pain as it reduces Vata. Massage vigorously on the most severely affected areas for full benefits.
Physical exercise and yoga: Exercise in moderation daily, too much exercise can cause further aggravation to your arthritic condition.
Arthritis treatment – Homeopathy
Try the remedies below for treatment at home, but be sure to follow up with a homeopathic professional if you don’t see any improvement:
Bryonia: Pains are worse from the slightest motion, better after rest. Pains are also better from pressure or by lying on the painful side.
Caulophyllum: Women are mostly affected by the small joints, particularly the fingers, hands, toes, and sometimes the ankles. Pain and stiffness can alternate from one joint to another every minute. Small joint problems plus uterine difficulties.
Arthritis Home Remedies
Attractive and relatively affordable, copper bracelets are, for some, a necessary accessory. People think copper has antioxidant effects that can reduce inflammation. However, there’s no evidence to support wearing copper bracelets to relieve joint pain. There’s not a lot of good science to wearing copper bracelets, but it probably isn’t going to harm you either.
There’s no research to let you know the correct dose of this possible cure, but folklore recommends letting golden raisins soak up some gin for about a week and then eating ten raisins or so a day for joint pain relief.
Honey and cider vinegar
As home remedies go, this one is something of a cure-all. People use (honey and cider vinegar) for a number of things, including colds and immune system boosting. Again, there’s very little science behind this pain remedy, but also very little evidence of any harm.
