Explaining Arthritis to Others

If you have arthritis, or you know someone does, you may often think about how to explain what it means to have arthritis.  In an article entitled "Arthritis: When the Knees and Hips Go", author Deepak Chopra helps put the chronic condition of arthritis into real terms.  He also includes a discussion on several ways to relieve symptoms associated with arthritis; these include:

  • Weight Loss (association with Obesity)
  • Physical Therapy
  • Yoga
  • Diet
  • Heat/Cold
  • Topical Medications
  • Supplements
  • Injections

Are there other methods you use to relieve symptoms of arthritis?  Any recommendations for how to explain what arthritis is to others?  Feel free to post in our comments section under the article!
