For years, arthritis was considered an inherent part of the aging process and a signal to a patient that it's time to slow down. But not so anymore. At Serenity Health Care Center, our team provides an anti-aging approach that assists with the inflammation that causes the pain. Recent research and clinical findings show that there is much more to life for arthritis patients than the traditional recommendation of bed rest and drug therapy.
The word "arthritis" means "joint inflammation" and is often used in reference to rheumatic diseases. Rheumatic diseases include more than 100 conditions, including gout, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and many more. Although arthritis often begins in middle age and is more frequent in the older generation, it can also start at a young age.
Arthritis causes pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of function in the joints. Several features distinguish rheumatoid arthritis it from other kinds of arthritis:
Arthritis is highly individual. Some people suffer from mild arthritis that lasts from a few months to a few years and then goes away. Mild or moderate arthritis have periods of worsening symptoms (flares) and periods of remissions, when the patient feels better.
People with severe arthritis feel pain most of the time. The pain lasts for many years and can cause serious joint damage and disability.
