Arthritis is tenderness, stiffness, and pain one feels due to swelling and inflammation of one or more joints. The most common types are osteoarthritis (breakdown of joint cartilage and bone) and rheumatoid arthritis (a long-term autoimmune disorder that affects the joints).
What Causes Arthritis?
Osteoarthritis is caused by wear-and-tear damage to a joint’s cartilage (that hard, slippery coating on the ends of your bones where they connect at the joint). It typically worsens with age.
In the case of rheumatoid arthritis, the body’s immune system is sadly the culprit. It attacks the lining (synovial membrane) of the tough membrane that covers the joint parts. It becomes inflamed and painfully swollen. The cartilage and bone are damaged, and it can be difficult to move and even sleep.
Treatment for Arthritis
Although lotions and creams are not made to treat the disastrous effects of this horrible condition, they can be quite effectively used to reduce discomfort when used in combination with massaging.
