How To Treat Arthritis Fast | Top 5 Arthritis Home Remedies


From the rheumatology experts at Mayo Clinic comes a complete guide on arthritis. This book is filled with proven, science-based research on arthritis and its related conditions, recommended treatment plans for relieving joint stiffness and pain, and essential self-care tips to help you live a life free from debilitating arthritis symptoms.

Each year, more than 50 million Americans suffer from joint inflammation and swelling caused by arthritis. Too many people have first-hand experience with the crippling effects of the disease, effects that can harm one’s ability to work, move, and complete normal tasks in day-to-day life.

However, knowing more about arthritis can help you move past its impairments. Mayo Clinic Guide to Arthritis combines knowledge from the rheumatology experts at the Mayo Clinic to teach readers about the causes and risks associated with different types of arthritis—like rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and other back and spine disorders—and how to spot the warning signs of each condition.

Following the latest developments in arthritis research, the book then highlights different treatment options available for managing the pain, including medications, surgical procedures, physical therapies, and types of integrative medicine. Finally, readers will learn how to live with arthritis and protect their joints while staying active, maintaining a healthy diet, going to work, and even traveling.

With this all-inclusive reference guide from the Mayo Clinic, learn how to adopt a healthy lifestyle, seek professional support, and control and minimize joint inflammation, to relieve arthritic pain once and for all.
