LOCAL SPECIALISTS FOR OSTEOARTHRITIS AND RHEUMATISM

Joint pain and inflammation are most frequently caused by osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis is the mechanical wear of articular cartilage. Rheumatoid arthritis describes inflammatory processes in the joint.

Frequently, painful inflammation and mechanical wear occur simultaneously. Together, they affect more than 8 million people or 12% of the population in the UK alone!

Most commonly arthritis occurs in the two most weight-bearing joints: the knee (knee arthrosis = gonarthrosis) and the hip (hip arthrosis = coxarthrosis).

MANAGING JOINT PAIN

What else can you do for your joints? Painkillers can be used in the short term. They suppress the pain and inhibit inflammation. Unfortunately, they do not help support the joint and have side effects when taken long-term.

For this reason, many osteoarthritis book authors recommend that the right diet and regular, low-impact exercise are key to living with joint pain.

It is also important to keep your weight under control. Excess weight places unnecessary stress on both metabolism and joints. You can read more about the impact of body weight on osteoarthritis here.
