ARTHRITIS

Arthritis occurs when the cartilage within a joint deteriorates and the bones come in contact within the joint. This causes inflammation and pain within the joint. There are two types of arthritis; osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis usually involves a single joint and may occur as a result of injury, poor posture/anatomy, repetitive usage of a given joint, infection, and/or a result of other disease state(s).

The symptoms of osteoarthritis include:

  • Morning stiffness
  • Inflammation
  • Joint pain that worsens after movement/exercise and is relived after rest
  • Joint pain during rainy and/or damp weather

Treatment for osteoarthritis may include Flanax Pain Reliever medication. Flanax Pain Reliever Tablets reduce pain and swelling in the joint so you can resume your activity. You may also use Flanax Liniment in conjunction with the Flanax Pain Reliever Tablets. The pain relief effect of the Flanax Pain Reliever Tablets generally last around 8-12 hours. However, you may experience some pain and swelling during this time but you can reduce it by applying the Flanax Liniment directly to the joint.

Other treatments include losing weight if you are overweight to reduce the stress on your joints, getting plenty of rest, and using braces to protect your joints if your job involves repetitive use of a joint.

Before you undertake any treatment please consult your doctor.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis occurs when the body’s immune system attacks the joints. This results in joint destruction and loss of cartilage within the joint which results in pain and inflammation. Rheumatoid arthritis usually involves both joints of the body equally.

Rheumatoid arthritis is usually caused by genetic factors but may be triggered by environmental factors.

The symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis include:

  • Fatigue
  • Muscle weakness
  • Fever
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nodules
  • Joint deformity
  • Swollen Glands

Treatment of rheumatoid arthritis includes medications, physical therapy, exercise, education, and surgery. Medications include Flanax Pain Reliever medication. Flanax Pain Reliever Tablets reduces pain and swelling in the joint so you can resume your activities. You may also use Flanax Liniment in conjunction with the Flanax Pain Reliever Tablets. The pain relief effect of the Flanax Pain Reliever Tablets generally last around 8-12 hours.
