Arthritis is a very common but complex disease. A most common symptom is the joint pains in the different joints in the body. These joints could be at the elbows, knees, hands, wrists, or even the hips and different parts of the body. The two most common forms of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
The best prevention to arthritis is not to put undue stress to the joints. This means having the proper warm-up routines before exercising, taking periods of rest when engaging in physically stressful work, and relaxing the joints by stretching and exercising the joints, especially when taking long car or plane rides. Daily exercise is also recommended as a preventive measure for arthritis. you can take supplements also for arthritis joint supplements-
I am a PT. First, at the sign of any symptoms, start applying ice to help minimize inflammation. Doing strengthening exercises for your hands and wrists can help ward off symptoms. And, watching your posture and hand positions, especially with playing instruments is important.
