Possible Causes of Joint Pain
Winter time is beautiful, but in cold weather we are more prone to variety of diseases. Even with proper preventive and timely care; such diseases as arthritis, arthrosis, osteochondrosis, and gout can exhibit painful symptoms because of the lower temperatures and changes in humidity. Viral infections, stress, narrowed blood vessels and a number of other factors can cause painful symptoms. Our mood deteriorates; we wonder where to turn for help this time, remembering previous episodes that were not very successful.
We seek a more effective, long-term solution, while also wanting to avoid negative medicinal side effects. Is it even possible? The answer is yes.
If health experts are working together on patient’s health issues as a team, using natural medicine and the best European electrotherapeutic equipment, then it’s quite possible. In addition, if the diagnosis is done early enough - at the initial stages of the condition, there is a huge chance that a positive outcome will be quick and effective.
Arthritis is inflamed joints; the cause can be triggered by various infections, allergies, and infringement of joint metabolism. It may portray as a specific illness or its appearance may be a symptom of another.
Arthrosis and osteoarthritis are chronic joint diseases which vary in manifestation. Arthrosis is accompanied by destruction of articulate cartilage; inflammation follows at a later point or none simultaneously. The basis of Arthrosis is a damage of exchange processes in muscles and joints as the result of damaged blood vessels feeding a joint. The cause of arthrosis may vary. For example; weak muscles, spasms, edema, trauma, inflammation, infection, aging and hormonal changes, joint strains, etc. Arthrosis carries progressive behavior if not addressed immediately.
Osteochondrosis (discs degeneration) has a degenerative nature. Virtually, every person today suffers from this illness. If timely treatment and preventative maintenance are not implemented soon enough, herniated disks and inter-vertebral hernias will develop.
Gout arises in a case of buildup and overabundance of uric acid in joints and in the system as a whole. It occurs if you intake foods rich in fructose, purine-rich or in case of poor kidney function. A non-active life style, over consumption of fat, high calorie meats, alcohol abuse, and starvation can also provoke a gout attack.
Treatment of joint pain only by means of various ointments and painkillers can temporarily relieve pain, but the core problem remains intact. As we know the majority of modern anti-inflammatory pills and painkillers possess a whole spectrum of side effects, and the pain relief has only temporary effect because the root cause is not eliminated. It’s a vicious cycle; either we are treating ourselves from acute chronic illness, or the side effects of prescribed medication.
It is very important not only to start treatments at the right time, but also to develop the optimum program for ongoing support and for prevention of disease.
There’s a way out!
