The Arthritis Foundation Debunks Myths About Arthritis


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/25/2015 -- Arthritis is one of the most prevalent diseases in the world, affecting millions of individuals in the United States alone. Although there are several known pain relief options used by sufferers, experts suggest that understanding the condition can significantly help them find the right solution to the problems it can cause.

The Arthritis Foundation recently debunked many of the myths about arthritis. According to the organization, arthritis is often a widely misunderstood ailment and there are numerous myths about it that can mislead patients or steer them away from using the right approach to manage pain.

"Learning all about the condition can be extremely helpful for patients, especially those who are looking for the right remedy or treatment option," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan. "We can all learn how to better manage the condition simply by understanding it properly."

According to the Arthritis Foundation, one of the most damaging myths is that arthritis is a simple ache or pain that is almost always associated with getting older or aging. However, the truth is that arthritis is not just a condition that comes with old age. As a matter of fact, there are many individuals below the age of 65 who are suffering from arthritis, including 300,000 children. It can affect people of any race, age or gender.

Many people also believe that arthritis is not a serious health problem. However, it is the leading cause of disability in the United States and is associated with the development of ailments such as cancer, diabetes or heart disease. According to the Arthritis Foundation, the condition puts an increasing burden on the economic and health care systems of many countries around the world.

"So many people are suffering unnecessarily because of ridiculous myths," added O'Sullivan. "Some people think that they shouldn't exercise when they have arthritis. But, the truth is that they actually need to exercise to strengthen supporting muscles and manage their weight to reduce the load on their joints."

Many arthritis sufferers are now resorting to natural pain management alternatives to avoid the potential dangers of prescription medication. They believe that natural resources, such as curcumin supplements, can safely help them achieve pain relief and improve their mobility (
