Arthritis PAIN


Most pain in joints is arthritis pain. The word is taken from 2 words, “arthro” meaning joint, “itis” meaning inflammation. Any pain in a joint has inflammation. Inflammation can derive from an injury or degeneration (breakdown of the joint). Degeneration can occur from an old injury, diet, or a malfunctioning joint from faulty posture. Treating the correct cause will usually get a good result. We at Southern Spinal Care are always looking at the cause to the problem which not only helps deliver the correct treatment, but also to help advise on prevention. Some of the most mundane tasks done daily could be the cause and hence a re-evaluation needs to be advised.
