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

The immune system of the body targets its own healthy cells as part of an immunological reaction that leads to RA.  Although the precise origins of RA are unknown, a number of variables can raise one's risk of getting the illness. 

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.

Symptoms of RA

  • Pain or aching in more than one joint

  • Stiffness in more than one joint

  • Tenderness and swelling in more than one joint

  • The same symptoms on both sides of the body (such as in both hands or both knees)

  • Weight loss

  • Fever

  • Fatigue or tiredness

  • Weakness


Procedure of Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment

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.  Apart from pharmaceuticals, individuals can effectively manage their RA through evidence-based self-management techniques that minimize discomfort and impairment, enabling them to engage in activities that hold personal significance.

RA affects many aspects of daily living including work, leisure, and social activities.  Fortunately, multiple low-cost strategies in the community are proven to increase quality of life.

  • Get physically active. Experts advise adults to engage in 150 minutes a week of moderate physical activity, such as walking, swimming, or biking for 30 minutes five days a week. These thirty minutes can be divided into three distinct ten-minute daily sessions.

  • Go to effective physical activity programs. In addition to lowering RA-related pain and impairment and improving mood and mobility, physical activity programs can also help if you are afraid of aggravating your arthritis or are unclear of how to exercise properly.

  • Join a self-management education class. Participants with arthritis and (including RA) gain confidence in learning how to control their symptoms, how to live well with arthritis, and how arthritis affects their lives
