Would you believe over 10 million people in Britain suffer from Arthritis.

Arthritis Pain can cause so much discomfort as well resulting in stiffness and immobility. Please take a look at the video below to see how Get Fitt clients respond to our Far Infrared thermal treatment.

Currently the main method of controlling the symptoms of arthritis is with medication, as well as to help prevent any further complications.

This is a really serious problem that if eft untreated can lead to rotting of the joints, bone and ligament deterioration, and also joint deformity. All leading ultimately to a loss of joint function.

Interstingly there seems to be over 100 different forms of arthritis some of the most common types including; Gout, Lupus and Fibromyalgia.

The Most common 2 forms of Arthritis

Osteoarthritis

This would you believe is the most common form of arthritis affecting some 33% of people aged over 45.

This is basically the result of wear and tear on the joints due to overuse. Inevitably this may occur with time as we grow older.

Alternatively it can occur as a result of an injury or the result of serious weight gain, which of course will put more stress on the joints.

The most affected joints usually are the main load bearing ones such as the knees, hips and spine.

The joints themselves hurt and are often painful.

Often the joints range of motion is limited, tends to be swollen and stiff, as well as warm to the touch.

 

Common Symptoms:

  • Dull Aching Pain
  • Walking becomes Painful
  • Bending over becomes painful or
  • Gripping objects may become painful

Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis

This occurs when the immune system attacks the parts of your body including of course the joints.
The result is inflammation leading potentially to serious joint damage if left untreated.

Reserach shows that the inflammation may be related to 2 substances produces by your body:

Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) and interleukin-1 may serve to trigger and set off the immune system in Rheumatoid Arthritis.

If it is possible to reduce or block these factors, symptoms may be reduced, hopefully preventing joint damage.

Rheumatoid arthritis will often damage the joint lining resulting in pain, stiffness and swelling. Over 400,00 people in the UK suffer from Rheumatoid arthritis, with 3 times more women being diagnosed with it compared to men.
