Introduction to Joint Pain
Usually, the most common reason for joint pain occurring is the misuse of the joints. Especially, when people get older, they are no longer young and the joints will no longer endure the same amount of abuse that they were once able to endure.
When a person puts too much stress on the joints it can cause inflammation and sometimes even a tear in the cartilage of the joints.
The cartilage act as natural shock absorbers and once they are gone, the joints will no longer allow the person to move and the entire physical mechanism could potentially suffer a complete breakdown.
There are several main causes that lead to must types of joint pain.
Wear and tear is probably the most common cause, which results from the overuse of the joints, or from an injury. Sometimes this type of damage can also be caused by conditions such as arthritis, which comes with joint inflammation when it occurs.
When a joint is infected it can also lead to pain and disorders such as septic arthritis.
Autoimmune disorders are when a person’s body produces antibodies that harm its own tissues, which can also lead to joint pain.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a common autoimmune disease that causes joint pain.
Another reason for joint pain is sometimes involuntary weight loss, and if joint pain continues in such a case for over three days, the doctor must be contacted immediately.
Natural remediesOne way to try and get rid of joint pain naturally is to change one’s diet. All dairy products other can plan yogurt should be avoided completely. Alcohol should be avoided altogether as well. When cooking, it is best to use olive oil, and eating citrus fruits are good for joint pain, except lemon and grapefruit, which can potentially trigger even more pain.
Another food that should be avoided completely is red meat.
Drinking papaya seed tea six or seven times every day for several weeks has shown to relieve joint pain. Another good home remedy consists of garlic fried in butter.
Another great cure for joint pain is taking a half-teaspoon of turmeric powder and mixing it with a warm glass of water three times a day.
Bananas and carrot juice are other delicious remedies.
Mixing carrot juice and lime juice is an excellent concoction for getting rid of joint pain.
It is also of vital importance to drink a lot of water every day.
A warm bath can also help with joint pain, especially a warm bath with Epsom salt-water.
