The body’s immune system is responsible for protecting the body from the attack of various pathogens such as bacteria and viruses. It occurs when the immune system mistakenly begins attacking the joints instead.
In Rheumatoid Arthritis, the body’s own tissue gets attacked by its immune system, including the joints. In severe cases, the internal organs also get affected.
What is Rheumatoid Arthritis?
Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder that typically affects the lining of the joints, causing a painful swelling that can eventually result in bone erosion and joint deformity. Rheumatoid Arthritis occurs when immune system attacks the synovial capsule –the lining of the membranes that surround the joints. Inflammation can thicken the synovial capsule, which can eventually destroy the cartilage and bone within the joint and gradually, the joint loses its shape and alignment. The autoimmune condition can start at any age but generally people in 50-60 age range get affected more. To reduce pain and disability, people should adopt some self-management strategies and avail proper treatment at the right time. Natural treatment system has the efficacy in improving the condition.
