An inflammation of the joint is known as arthritis. It can affect any joint in the body and can often cause immense suffering and loss of mobility of the part or the whole body. Sometimes it is following trauma or overstraining, at other times it could be due to an infection and is then called a septic or infective arthritis. In some individuals, it is a result of an auto-immmune disoerder where the body’s defense mechansim suddenly decides that the normal joint tissues are a disease or a bug and tries to destroy them. Rheumatoid arthritis is an example of an auto-immune disorder. As we grow older, some of the joints start degenerating leading to a condition often mistakenly called osteo arthritis. The correct term would be osteo arthrosis.
Fortunately, nature has made available a lot of different substances that can be used to combat all these different types of joint disorders. Homeopathy is one such system of treatment that harnesses the power of nature to treat diseases. And homeopathy works wonders in these joint disorders.
