Before we go in-depth into Arthritis, we first need to understand a few things :
Arthritis is a form of joint disorder that involves damage and / or inflammation of one or more joints. There are many different types of Arthritis, more than a hundred of them in medical definitions. To make things less complicated, we can look at the cause of the problem, which brings us to the next topic.
If it's due to typical wear and tear ie Osteoarthritis due to degeneration, pain is usually localized (doesn't affect unaffected joints), involves joints that we use a lot (or if we are heavy), pain occurs especially during movements.
On the other hand, if it's due to auto immune disorder ie Rheumatoid Arthritis. The pain typically comes in pair, ie a pair of knee, a pair of hips, fingers, and many more. Pain occurs even when we are not moving, ie rested for a while or waking up from sleep. Fingers may bend. Pain affect different joints at different times.
When Rheumatoid Arthritis affects the fingers, you'll see the person who suffers from it constantly rub their fingers and hands.
Glucosamine paired with many types of food or supplements that has anti inflammatory purposes work wonders on arthritis. When it comes to auto immune disorder, probiotics and many other food that helps regulate our immune systems works great! Also, learn to relax.
