Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the U.S., affecting more than 50 million adults. Though arthritis occurs more frequently as we age, it is by no means an older person's disease: Arthritis also affects over 300,000 children.
Arthritis is a universal term for over 100 different types of joint pain or diseases of the joint, which includes symptoms such as moderate to severe swelling, pain, limited range of motion, and stiffness. Arthritis is common in the lower back and many people seek a cure for lower back pain that is caused by arthritis.
The bad news is that there is no cure for arthritis. The good news is that many cases of arthritis can be managed to reduce pain, provide lower back pain relief, and maintain a reasonable quality of life.
To help manage your arthritis, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends the following:
- Learn self-management skills- Discovering strategies to better manage arthritis and provide a back-pain treatment can help you feel more in control of your health and life, reduce stress, and make it easier to perform daily activities.
- Be active- Being physically active can reduce pain, improve function, mood, and improve the overall quality of life. Adults should be active at a moderate intensity for three hours per week.
- Improve weight management- Losing weight reduces stress on joints, particularly weight-bearing joints like the hips and knees. In fact, losing as little as 10 to 12 pounds can improve pain and function for people with arthritis.
- Protect joints- A joint injury can cause or worsen arthritis. Choose activities that are easy on the joints like walking, bicycling, and swimming. These low-impact activities have a low risk of injury and do not twist or put too much stress on the joints.
In addition, the Arthritis Foundation and Dr. Hedaya recommend these proven approaches:
- Anti-inflammatory diet- While there is no specific “diet” that people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), should follow, researchers have identified certain foods that can help control inflammation. Many of them are found in the so-called Mediterranean diet, which emphasizes fish, vegetables and olive oil, among other staples.– arthritis foundation
- Herbal supplements-Although there is no cure for lower back pain caused by arthritis, there are ways to help manage the pain without dangerous opioids, which do not address the root cause of pain, they merely mask it.
