Rheumatoid Arthritis

What is Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis develops when the body’s immune system starts attacking its own synovium which is a structure present in the membrane lining surrounding the joints. It leads to the inflammation of synovium making it thick in diameter, this then damages the lining of joints leading to swollen joints causing bone erosion. This may occur in a variety of joints including your hand, feet, cervical joints, knee, neck, jaw, back etc. The inflammation linked to it can also damage nearby body systems.

In early stages, rheumatoid arthritis mostly affects smaller joints, mainly the finger/hand joints and toe/feet joints. With the passage of time, the inflammation reaches our wrist and ankle.

Rheumatoid Arthritis treatment

Rheumatoid arthritis surgery is not commonly undergone, however people still opt for this to reduce their joint pain.

A much safer and well researched method for rheumatoid arthritis pain relief is laser therapy.

Laser therapy has been widely researched and has been shown in literature to have immediate pain relief for rheumatoid arthritis, as well as medium and long-term pain relief.

Laser therapy has been shown to increase cellular metabolism of the patient, which promotes the healing process of the targeted area. Laser therapy has also been shown to interact with the nerves of the targeted site in a way which reduces pain experienced. This interaction also releases endorphins which reduces the painful sensations at the site.
