Nutrition for Swelling and Inflammation of Connective Tissue.
Osteoarthritis is a disease mainly characterized by degenerative processes of the articular cartilage. It is a gradual decay that most often affects the weight bearing joints (knees, hips and spinal joints) and the joints of the hand. This severe degeneration causes pain, swelling deformation and reduced range of motion. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) unlike osteoarthritis, is a so-called autoimmune disease, characterized by chronic inflammation and thickening of the synovial lining in addition to cartilage destruction. The disease is often accompanied by low-grade fever, weight loss and a general feeling of sickness and soreness.
