When to Start Addressing Arthritis Symptoms?

Arthritis starts with low-intensity pain in the joints, and people often tend to ignore it, thinking it will eventually pass. In many cases, that turns out to be true. However, if the pain keeps on occurring and gradually starts growing in intensity, it is a clear sign that something must be done to address the core of the problem. Visiting a doctor is the first step.

If the diagnosis proves that it is the beginning of arthritis, the sooner the treatment starts, the better. Arthritis is a progressive disease, currently incurable, and needs to be remedied from the moment it is diagnosed. That is the only way to grow a habit and implement activities and treatments to control the pain with the aim of slowing the inevitable progress of arthritis.

There are a couple of ways to reduce the pain caused by arthritis and control the symptoms. Depending on the progress stage, these include physical therapy, taking ibuprofen and corticosteroids, regular low-intensity exercises, and, finally, surgery when everything else failed.
