Mesotherapy for Arthritis Swelling and Pain

Arthritis is inflammation of one or more joints. A joint is an area of the body where two different bones meettwo different bones meet. This affliction affects the ability of a body part to be moved without pain. Joint pain is referred to as arthralgia.

There are over one hundred forms of arthritis. Some forms are related to the wear and tear of cartilage (such as osteoarthritis) to those associated with inflammation resulting from an over-active immune system (such as rheumatoid arthritis). Together, the many forms of arthritis comprise the most common forms of the affliction in the North America.

Symptoms or Arthritis

Symptoms of arthritis include pain and limited function of joints. Inflammation of the joints from arthritis is characterized by joint stiffness, swelling, redness, and warmth. Tenderness of the inflamed joint can be present.

Symptoms for some sufferers can include fever, gland swelling, weight loss, and fatigue.

Causes 

The causes of arthritis depend on the form of arthritis. Causes include injury (leading to osteoarthritis), abnormal metabolism (such as gout), and infections (such as rheumatoid arthritis).

Care and Treatment 

As there are over one hundred different arthritic conditions, mesotherapy needs to be tailored with an individual “injectible cocktail” o antiinflammatory agents, vitamins and medicines at the site of the swelling and pain.

The most common types of arthritis include rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus, gout, scleroderma, Lyme disease, osteoarathritis, Kawasaki disease, fibromyalgia and Raynaud’s disease.

Arthritis may also be the source of unexplained back, neck, wrist or ankle pain.

Arthritis is a chronic condition that can be managed with many holistic treatments including mesotherapy. Success is dependent on self-discipline when it comes to taking prescribed medications and making the lifestyle changes necessary to alleviate the symptoms.  It is not a fatal disease but it is degenerative and therefore must be controlled.
