Arthritis can have a profound impact on a person's quality of life and wellbeing due to acute and chronic pain, physical limitations, management of the condition and mental health issues. This can often result in withdrawal from social, community and occupational activities
What is Arthirits?
Arthritis refers to a range of conditions that involve pain and inflammation in the joints.
OA mainly results when wear and tear of cartilage causes bones to rub together, leading to friction, damage, and inflammation.
RA is a systemic condition that triggers symptoms throughout the body. It’s an autoimmune disease and happens when the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy joint tissue.
Doctors can prescribe medication to relieve the pain of arthritis, but they often recommend natural approaches, too like Chair Yoga. Remember to talk to your doctor before trying any remedy for arthritis, whether it involves medication or not.
