Are you one of the millions of Americans suffering from arthritis pain? Arthritis most often affects the neck, back, hands, hips and knees. As we get older, the wear and tear on our joints breaks down the cartilage. Instead of a smooth surface, the cartilage becomes worn down in spots, leading to thinned areas and sometimes bone on bone. Arthritis pain is caused by inflammation irritating the surrounding tissues and muscles. In severe cases, nerve endings are exposed on bone. Whether you experience arthritis in your knees, lower back, shoulder, or neck, if your joints don’t move like they used to, this causes further rubbing and increased pain. Relieving Arthritis Pain When a joint becomes arthritic, it loses its normal motion and strength from surrounding muscles. By restoring normal joint movement and improving muscle strength, the amount of excessive pressure on the joint can be relieved. Reducing the pressure on the affected joint decreases inflammation and helps relieve pain by improving mobility.
