Arthritis Pain Treatment – Best and Natural Way to Get Relief From Pain and Inflammation

Arthritis is a chronic condition that can last a lifetime. Patients need to fully understand how this can change their life and what measures need to be taken in order to maintain a decent quality of life. Coping with the pain is the most important thing to do. There are many ways of keeping arthritis pain under control but all of them need determination. There is no universal arthritis pain treatment that will just work for everybody. Patients also need to understand that their lifestyle has to change, that they have to adopt a healthy diet that will ensure all the necessary minerals and that, in some cases; weight loss can make a world of difference. Each patient has to find out, on its own or together with a therapist, what best works for him or her and what is the most efficient arthritis pain treatment in his or hers particular case. Once this is established, keeping the disease under control will be much easier and the sufferer can go on with his or hers life. 

Arthritis is a degenerative condition that won’t go away with time. If ignored, it will only worsen and there is no point in suffering and in having difficulties to move around when there are so many remedies available. Natural remedies are always a good choice because they don’t come with any side effects.

There are many people who consider massaging with certain essential oils one of the best arthritis pain treatments.  Lavender oil, for instance, has powerful analgesic effects, as well as rosemary or chamomile oil. Rumatone Gold oil is also a wonderful remedy for many and, besides providing relief from the pain, it also strengthens the bone tissue, slowing down the degenerative process and improving one?s ability to move. 

Besides essential oils, herbal supplements are also great natural remedies. After all, herbs were the starting point in creating one of the most efficient artificial drugs found on the market nowadays. Horsetail is capable of reducing the damage done to the cartilages and bones. Cures should last for two weeks and should be done every month. The recommended dose is of three capsules daily. Boswelia and willow are also renowned for their ability to fight arthritis pain. Boswelia?s anti-inflammatory action is similar with that of non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and willow acts just like aspiring in the body. Although the analgesic effect of willow can take a little while to occur, it lasts longer than that of aspirin.

A Look At Arthritis: America's Leading Cause of Disability

Osteoarthritis is one of the most frequent causes of physical disability among adults. More than 20 million people in the United States, alone, have the disease. By 2030, according the National Institutes of Health (NIH), 20 percent of all Americans–about 70 million people–will have passed their 65th birthday and will be at a higher risk of osteoarthritis.

Arthritis limits the everyday activity of 8 million Americans, and this disability creates huge burdens for the individuals, their families, and the nation as a whole. Each year, arthritis results in 9,500 deaths and 750,000 hospitalizations. According to the National Center for Chronic Disease Control, in 1997, medical care for arthritis (in the U.S.) was $51 billion.

This disease affects each person quite differently. In some people it progresses quickly and in others the symptoms are much more serious and painful. Medical practitioners do not yet know what causes arthritis, but they suspect a combination of factors including: being overweight, the aging process, family history, joint injury, and stresses on the joints from work or sporting activities.

There is no single treatment that applies to everyone who suffers from arthritis. With your personal input, a medical specialist will develop a management and treatment plan designed to minimize your specific pain and improve the function of your joints. A number of treatments can provide short-term relief. They include: medications such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, the use of hot and cold packs, using a splint or a brace to protect painful joints, or perhaps using muscle-relaxing massages.

In the long-term, pain relief may be found with: new drugs, called biological response modifiers, which reduce inflammation in the joints; corticosteroids such as Prednisone; weight reduction; dietary changes; exercise (swimming, walking and low-impact aerobic exercise); and even surgery to replace a joint that has badly deteriorated. In some instances, nutritional supplements may be helpful.

The long-term goal of pain management is to help you cope with this chronic, often disabling disease. You may be caught in a cycle of pain, depression, and stress. To break this cycle, you need to be an active participant in managing your pain. The role you play in planning your treatment is very important. You and your health care providers must work together closely to develop a personalized and effective treatment program. Research has shown that patients who are well informed and participate actively in their own care, experience less pain, make fewer visits to the doctor and lead a much more enjoyable life.
