Arthritis is the inflammation of one or more joints. Common symptoms include pain, stiffness and swelling of the affected area. A joint is covered with smooth cartilage that protects it and allows the movement of two bones. Breakdown of this cartilage causes smooth surface to become irregular and rubbing bones causes pain and inflammation.
The therapeutic goal is to decrease the inflammation, pain and swelling as well as restore the self-regulation of the underlying metabolic processes to prevent further progression of the disease. Many natural remedies and homeopathic preparations are found to be beneficial in the treatment protocol for arthritis.
