Wear, Tear And Degenerative Arthritis

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

Wear, tear and degenerative arthritis causes people to move in a stiff, stooped fashion because their bones grate against each other. This is because the thin layer of cartilage that should cover the bones so that they glide against each other with hardly any friction has worn away. Inflammation around the joint causes pain and stiffness.

There are many different types of arthritis and they cannot all be explained by wear and tear. Some young people are arthritic but most victims are old. They may have spent sixty years swinging clubs, pushing gears and twirling steering wheels and the cartilage on their bones has worn away after so many repetitive actions. In the case of people who have played contact sports like rugby or boxing the battering that a body has taken through playing and training may come home to roost in the form of painful and stiff joints.

Degeneration is a natural but sad aspect of the aging process in man and beast. Old dogs become stiff and so do old human beings. Degeneration may be part of a process that prepares creatures for death. The joints most likely to degenerate are those that are not so much exercises as used, and used often. The degeneration is seldom imagined are faked. It appears gradually and contortions become progressively worse.

Mobility is impaired and things that were easily done before the onset of arthritis become difficult or impossible. The man with the strong wrist who was always turned to when a bottle cap had to be unscrewed can no longer lift a cup of coffee comfortably. Pain twists and contorts parts of the body and a look of suffering can mark facial expressions.

It is difficult to cure arthritis because cartilage will not easily regenerate, as will bones and skin. Analgesics can be used to alleviate pain but if cartilage is worn away and not replaced the grinding of the bones will continue and the pain will return when the pain killers wear off. It appears that cartilage does not contain the blood vessels that promote healing and may even contain other substances that prevent healing.

Because populations across the world are aging arthritic problems are becoming more prevalent and demanding more attention. Many people long for a complete cure which seems to elude medical science. In the first instance sufferers turn to painkillers but these cannot represent a cure, but only palliatives. Surgery presents itself as drastic solution which is intrusive and possible risky.

The word, ‘degenerative’ indicates a process. Pain might be so mild to begin with that it is hardly noticed, but can become an increasingly more disruptive factor in a person’s life. As this happens treatments that are attempted might become more radical and intrusive. Counselors have to find a way between remedies and might turn towards combinations of actions. Diet and exercise might become aspects of extensive lifestyle changes.

Remedies are sometimes sought in the dietary habits of communities which have low rates of affliction. Many people turn to patented medicines sold in pharmacies. Often they are prepared from herbs and substances such as ginger, turmeric and garlic that have been recommended traditionally. Medical experts might dismiss folk medicine but for victims of degenerative arthritis what works is worthwhile trying.
