Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment

Rheumatoid arthritis, often known as RA, is an inflammatory and autoimmune illness. It arises when your body's immune system unintentionally targets healthy cells, leading to painful swelling in the affected areas of the body. 

The joints are the primary target of RA, often several joints at once. Hand, wrist, and knee joints are frequently impacted by RA. Joint tissue is harmed by the inflammation of the joint's lining in RA-affected joints.

About Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment

Rheumatoid arthritis-related inflammation is what causes harm to other bodily components as well. Even though there are now many more treatment choices available due to new drugs, severe rheumatoid arthritis can still cause physical limitations. Rheumatoid arthritis therapy along with medication(s) can be used to effectively treat and manage RA. Biological response modifiers (biologicals) are an efficient second-line treatment for rheumatoid arthritis (RA); these treatments are classified as disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) since they reduce the progression of the disease and prevent joint deformity. 

 

Procedure of Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment

The treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) involves a comprehensive and tailored approach to manage symptoms, mitigate inflammation, and prevent joint damage.

Early diagnosis, often facilitated by rheumatologists through thorough examinations and diagnostic tests, is crucial.

The primary line of defense includes Disease-Modifying Antirheumatic Drugs (DMARDs), with methotrexate being a common initial prescription. Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) and short-term corticosteroids may be used for symptom relief. 

Physical and occupational therapy play key roles in maintaining joint flexibility and function.

Lifestyle modifications, including regular exercise, rest, and a balanced diet, contribute to overall well-being. Surgical intervention, like joint replacement, is reserved for severe cases. Regular monitoring through check-ups, blood tests, and imaging studies helps adjust treatment plans.

Psychosocial support is integral for coping with the emotional aspects of chronic illness.
