What is Arthritis?

  • Arthritis means joint inflammation (“Arthro”=joint & “itis”=inflammation). 

To some of us, the word arthritis can often sound quite scary. It is often said innocently to describe a mild joint discomfort or could be used more threateningly to describe debilitating lower back pain, knee pain or hip pain and can even lead to thoughts of surgery and joint replacements.

What Causes Arthritis & Joint Pain?

Our joints are lined with a robust tissue called cartilage. As we age, like all tissues of the body, our cartilage ages with us. Our skin wrinkles, our hair turns grey and our cartilage dehydrates. The wear and tear on our cartilage as we age is the same as the wrinkles on our faces, we do not blame those wrinkles (wear and tear of the skin)  for aches and pains yet we do blame cartilage wear and tear for our joint pains.

Our bodies and certain joints may start to feel stiffer in the morning or getting out of our favourite chair may become more uncomfortable or even painful. The medical evidence has demonstrated the joint wear and tear is no predictor of pain and as such we shouldn’t be blaming wear and tear on the pain we experience. It happens to everyone yet not everyone experiences joint pain. Like every pain experience, there will be multiple factors involved in your suffering so it is unhelpful to focus on just one thing like wear and tear.

Treatment for Arthritis and Joint Pain 

Those that suffer from joint pain often feel trapped in a cycle of medications and lose out on otherwise enjoyable experiences or find they are unable to play with grandchildren. Identifying factors that are contributing to your pain and suffering are key in identifying non-pharmaceutical ways to improve both pain intensity and any decline in your quality of life. To get you returning to all the things you may be missing out on due to arthritis pain.
