Understanding arthritis that's becoming common across ages and genders
Arthritis is becoming a common disease in India and now over 100 different types of arthritis exist and it is becoming a leading cause of disability across the world.
It is becoming more common among women of all ages and frequently to both and women as they get older. Some types of arthritis also affect the heart, eyes, lungs, kidneys and skin besides affecting the joints.

According to the Arthritis Foundation, common symptoms include swelling, pain, stiffness and decreased range of motion which can be intermittent, mild, moderate or severe. "Severe arthritis can result in chronic pain, inability to do daily activities and make it difficult to walk or climb stairs. Arthritis can cause permanent joint changes."

Thus, arthritis is no more the disease of the old; even a large number of children are getting it. Of late, a large number of juvenile arthritis cases are being reported.

In order to understand the disease and beware of it, here is an acrostic on ARTHRITIS for you.

A: Avoid arthritis by maintaining the proper height-weight ratio and tone up the joint muscles by exercises and Yoga

R: Rheumatoid arthritis is the inflammation in joint muscles caused by the immune activity of the body can be disabling

T: Therapy of QMR (Quantum Magnetic Resonance) can be helpful for treatment

H: Health consciousness through active and positive life style is effective preventive measure

R: Rubbing of joint bones causes pain stiffness and swelling in the joint

I: Involves break down of cartilage which normally protects the joints and absorbs the shocks

T: Treatment requires occupational therapy, life style changes, dietary supplementation, arthoplasty and surgery

I: Injuries at the same place during the games also lead to arthritis

S: Sports persons often get the softening of cartilage around their knee caps

It needs to be understood that the pain killers are for temporary relief as the disease is progressive. Even the knee replacement in a large number of cases is unsuccessful and in the case of a successful knee transplant the post surgery recovery is painful. The most recommended is the QMR therapy for arthritis.
