So What Diseases Are Associated With Inflammation?
Some types of arthritis, a general term that describes inflammation in joints, may be
associated with inflammation. The forms of arthritis include:
~ Rheumatoid arthritis
~ Psoriatic arthritis
~ Gouty arthritis
Generally, when we think of arthritis, we think of inflammation which is a process
where our body's white blood cells and chemicals protect us from infection, such as
bacteria and viruses.
Sometimes our body's immune system can trigger an inflammatory response when
there are no foreign substances to fight off. These diseases, called autoimmune
diseases, cause our body's normally protective immune system to damage its own
There are some painful conditions affecting the joints and musculoskeletal system
that are not linked with inflammation, which include fibromyalgia, muscular low back
pain and muscular neck pain. Doctors say that inflammation does not play a major
role in osteoarthritis. Far infrared therapy is also an effective non-pharmaceutical
treatment option for muscular pain, fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis.
What Are the Symptoms of Inflammation?
The symptoms of inflammation may include:
~ Swollen joints tender and hot to the touch
~ Joint pain
~ Joint stiffness
~ Impaired joint function
What Causes the Symptoms of Inflammation?
When inflammation occurs, our body releases chemicals into the blood or affected
tissues which increases the blood flow to the area of injury or infection often
resulting in feelings of pain, redness and warmth. These chemicals can cause a
leak of fluid into the surrounding tissues, causing edema, tenderness and may
stimulate nerves and cause pain.
What Are the Results of Joint Inflammation?
The increased blood flow caused by the body's release of these chemicals attracts
white blood cells to the sites of inflammation. The inflammatory substances within
the joint may cause irritation, wearing down of cartilage and swelling of the joint
