Joint pain or joint disease which attacks body joints is known as arthritis and sufferers often seek out a natural treatment of arthritis because of its painful effects. The disease strikes vital parts of the joint, such as the cartilage, tendons and the fibrous capsule responsible for lubrication. Scientific experts have not fully understood the causes or mechanisms behind the disease. Many types of arthritis are believed to be a result of a combination of genetic predisposition and environmental trigger such as virus or toxins. There are more than a hundred types of arthritis and related conditions, each has unique features, characteristics and risk factors associated with it. To illustrate the scale of the disease it is estimated that more than 40 million people in the USA have osteoarthritis, a common joint disease, and this is expected to increase to 70 million by 2030. Some risk factors are out of control for example, genetic profile, aging and gender, which makes a specific group of people be at higher risk than others. Knowledge of the trigger is the key in order to prevent the disease. There are a range of treatments for this debilitating disease and this article will discuss the natural treatment of arthritis to keep it at bay and to provide people with supple healthy joints

There is little doubt that practicing healthy habits can help to reduce risk or delay the onset of the disease. Although there is still hope, only prevention of the disease is possible but not a permanent cure at present.

 Simple Measures We Can Take For Natural Treatment Of Arthritis?

1. Have a Diet Rich in Fish

Eating certain fish which are rich in omega-3 fatty acids give the body a healthy polyunsaturated fat which reduces inflammation. Studies show that those who eat fish such as salmon, trout, mackerel and sardines, regularly have a lower risk for rheumatoid arthritis. Vitamin D is also essential in reducing progression of osteoarthritis. Drinking plenty of water is good for the cartilage, which cushions the joint, hence preventing wear and tear.

2. Keep weight under control

Maintaining a healthy weight reduces the likelihood of osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis which is a result of force exerted on the knee, which increases by around forty five pounds with each step, does more harm to an overweight person. A healthy diet and enough exercise is the best way to achieve this. Avoiding high heeled shoes saves the toes from unnecessary strain.

3. Maintain mobility through exercise

It is important to maintain mobility and function by doing exercises to avoid the pain associated with the disease. Exercise strengthens muscles around the joints, while releasing stress exerted by the weight from the joints. As a result, this protects the joint from wear and tear. Aerobic activities such as walking, biking and swimming are ideal for achieving the required result, since they don't have a high impact on the joints. Doing strengthening exercises and stretching also helps in maintaining flexibility of joints.

Injuries can damage the cartilage in the knee making it to wear more rapidly. It is advisable to avoid sport injuries by using proper equipment and taking adequate safety precautions when doing sporting activities. This can prevent anterior cruciate ligament tears which can lead to osteoarthritis within a few years.

4. Prevent unnecessary strain on joints

Protecting the joints from strains is also crucial in preventing arthritis. This is done by employing the correct techniques when working and using the right posture when sitting or lifting heavy objects. Carrying items close to the body reduces strain on the wrists. Lifting objects with the knees and hips reduces strain on the back. It is also good to take a break when doing strenuous or repetitive activities. When sitting for long it is necessary to keep legs, arms and the back  supported.

5. Avoid smoking

Avoiding smoking reduces the chances of developing rheumatoid arthritis. This is a chronic joint inflammatory disease caused by attack on the body usually initiated by the immune system.

Summary

As can be seen above there are some simple steps that you can follow as a natural treatment for arthritis

Reading a really good internet publication such as The Arthritis Step By Step Strategy could also be of benefit to you

Remember you don’t have to live in pain always from this sometimes crippling disease.
