Arthritis is defined as inflammation of the joints, and it can affect only one joint or multiple throughout the body. There are nearly 100 types of arthritis, with each having its own causes and methods of treatment. The two most common are osteoarthritis (the breakdown of cartilage causing bones in the joint to rub together) and rheumatoid arthritis (chronic inflammation in the joints).
While arthritis can cause severe pain, there are a few ways to reduce symptoms and ease the pain.
Staying active is one way. It can relieve pain, improve function and mood, and overall quality of life. It can also help reduce the risk of other chronic diseases, like heart disease and diabetes. The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommends that adults are active at moderate intensity for at least 150 minutes a week - however, stay as active as your body allows and always consult your doctor if you have any questions.Protecting your joints is an essential step in preventing pain onset by arthritis. You are more prone to joint injuries, so choose activities that are easy on joints like walking and swimming.
Managing a healthy weight is another way to help prevent pain. Losing weight can reduce stress on joints overall, but especially in the hips and knees. Losing as much as 10 pounds can lessen pain and help increase functions.
