What is Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis is a medical disorder of joints. It is a chronic inflammatory condition that spreads to the surrounding when it affects any joint. In many cases it may lead to body system damage which may include lung damage, eye damage, heart damage etc. 

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.

It is difficult to diagnose rheumatoid arthritis in its early stages as similar symptoms are seen for a variety of other medical conditions, and as a result rheumatoid arthritis can be misdiagnosed. The doctor examines your body for signs such as inflammation, this is where misdiagnosis occurs. In the later stages, doctors may examine your blood in order to diagnose this disease correctly.

Rheumatoid arthritis diagnosis criteria

There are 3 types of rheumatoid arthritis as follows:

Seropositive Rheumatoid Arthritis

It is a chronic inflammatory condition of the joints. A person with seropositive rheumatoid arthritis has antibodies in their bloodstream which assist in diagnosing the disease.

Seronegative Rheumatoid Arthritis

It is the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis without having certain types of antibodies in the patient. It leads to immense pain accompanied with swelling and stiffness.

Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

This causes inflammation & stiffness of the joints in children under the age of 16. It is an autoimmune disease in which the body mistakenly treats its own cells and tissues as foreign particles and begins to harm them. Blood tests are used to help diagnose this.

    Rheumatoid Arthritis Causes

    The main cause of rheumatoid arthritis is when the body’s immune system attacks its own synovium. The reason on why the body begins this process of self-infliction is still unknown. Causes of rheumatoid arthritis are mentioned ahead:

    Rheumatoid Arthritis treatment

    Rheumatoid arthritis surgery is not commonly undergone, however people still opt for this to reduce their joint paint. Medication is often prescribed, however it has been known to cause a variety of side effects such as kidney damage. 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. These interactions have a combined effect that result in pain relief starting from minutes after the treatment to long-term pain relief.

    Our technology is equipped with providing pain relief for many complex medical disorders. The treatments are non-invasive, the procedure is painless and you do not experience any side effects.
