Arthritis Foundation Reveals Information That Provides Hope for Chronic Pain Patients
Orlando, FL -- (SBWire) -- 03/11/2015 --Chronic pain is one of the most undesirable things that come together with arthritis. It makes completing daily routines and activities extremely challenging. However, new information reveals there is still a chance that patients can experience some improvement in their condition.
According to the Arthritis Foundation, there is still hope for patients who are suffering from chronic arthritis pain. The organization believes that pain lingers in most cases, mainly because many arthritic conditions are not well understood.
"It is almost always that people perceive pain as a result of an underlying medical condition. When the root cause is treated, the pain will eventually disappear. However, this does not work for all arthritis conditions," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
Many experts suggest that finding remedies for conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis can potentially get pain under control. Measures such as joint replacement or disease-modifying drugs do work. However, they also added that even if these measures drastically reduce pain, suffering still lingers.
The George Washington University Medical Center's Clinical Professor of Rheumatology, David Borenstein, MD, believes that chronic pain can be a difficult problem for healthcare professionals to help patients with. This is especially true among patients who have been experiencing pain for many years, and such pain has already been ingrained in their physiology and psyche. Dr. Borenstein is also the head of the American College of Rheumatology's Pain Management Task Force.
"According to these experts, understanding pain is one of the most important steps that patients should make. Oftentimes, pain becomes independent and it usually transforms into a whole new disease," added O'Sullivan.
Every time inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis takes place, especially over long periods, the pain signal is transmitted to the brain. There is always a chance that even if it is just a minor inflammation, the brain misinterprets the pain message and considers it a big one.
Studies are still being conducted to help patients deal with chronic pain. However, for now, healthcare professionals who treat arthritis patients suggest that sufferers should try to understand more about the pain they are feeling.
There are also healthcare professionals who recommend the use of natural alternatives such as curcumin supplements. Curcumin is an active, therapeutic ingredient of a spice called turmeric. Its use has long been associated with a wide variety of health benefits. There are arthritis patients using curcumin supplements who claim that they have experienced significant pain relief after using the natural alternative http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI/?ie=UTF8?&m=A3OG9DHZ3GI58O&keywords=tumeric
