Arthritis is basically inflammation of the joints. This chronic disease settles in a number of different joints, some more common than others. The most common areas arthritis settles in are the elbows, wrists, shoulders, hands, knees, ankles, feet, and hips. That about covers the entire human body. If arthritis is not addressed in its early phases, it can lead to the complete degeneration of the affected joint area.

If you do not address the affected areas, you could render yourself immobile. My grandfather had severe arthritis in his hips that rendered him immobile in his later years. He was confined to a wheelchair. His only chance for walking again without severe pain was hip replacement surgery, a highly involved, long, and risky procedure for a man of his age. He eventually decided against the surgery and lived his last few years in a great deal of discomfort.

Be Responsible for Your Body

My grandfather began noticing the pain in his fifties but never did anything about it. He didn't alter his diet, consult a doctor, or revamp his physical activities. He, like many men of his generations, ignored the pain and accepted it as part of the aging process. By the time he was 65, he could barely walk because of the pain.

You should not have to spend your golden years in pain. There are treatments out there that directly address arthritis pain. Many of these treatments are all natural, topical creams that you simply rub into affected areas. Pain and discomfort are immediately reduced or eliminated and you can go about your business with a smile. Please be responsible for your body and explore the different arthritis remedies out there.
