World Arthritis Day 2017


FIGHTING AGAINST JOINT PAIN


Danubius-Hotels world arthritis day 2016World Arthritis Day
– which is being held for its 21st time on 12 October this year – aims to raise awareness of the ways of preventing and treating rheumatoid inflammatory disease, otherwise known as arthritis

0.5-1%
2-3x more women
30-50 years
This rheumatic disease, affects
0.5-1% of the population
It is two or three times as
common in women as in men
It primarily develops between
the ages of 30 and 50

Inflammation of the small muscles in the hand and foot is the most typical form of the disease, but it also commonly affects the knee, wrist, elbow and ankle joints. Occasionally it may also attack other organs (lungs, eyes), and as a consequence of this inflammation the build-up of plaque can accelerate in the arteries, having a detrimental effect on the cardiovascular system.

The diseased proteins and cells generated during the inflammation process lead to a thinning of the joint cartilage and cause bone erosion at the bone ends, which can destroy the joint itself. Since cartilage damage and bone erosion can emerge even in the early stages of the disease, it is important to have it diagnosed early and start the treatment as soon as possible.
With the right treatment and lifestyle changes, this bone degeneration can be halted!

 


What causes it?

The exact causes of rheumatoid arthritis are still unknown, but numerous risk factors may result in the development of the disease:
  • Incidence increases with age, although in women over the age of 80, the incidence of the disease actually decreases.
  • Infections, especially bacterial or viral infections, may trigger the emergence of rheumatoid arthritis in someone with a genetic predisposition to the disease.
  • Smoking over an extended period of time.
  • Although a predisposition to the disease may be passed on genetically, it does not necessarily develop in those who inherit the genes.
What can we do to prevent it?

  • Get regular exercise. Whether you prefer to walk, use an exercise bike or work out in the pool, the important thing is to do it every day!
  • Try to achieve and maintain your ideal body weight.
  • Eat healthily: make sure your diet is rich in fruit, vegetables and wholemeal grains.
  • Warm up your joints – the simplest way of doing this is to bathe in warm water. Warmth alleviates the pain, relaxes tense muscles, and stimulates local circulation.
  • Cool down the inflamed areas – immerse the painful joints into cold water. The cold can dull the sense of pain and can alleviate the muscle spasms.
  • Take the prescribed medicines regularly, not only when the pain has already set in.
