Do you have Rheumatism? | Osteopathy Health Care

Updated: Sep 1, 2021

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) or simply put as Rheumatism refers to the inflammation of a joint or muscle. Symptoms include fever, swelling, soreness, redness, pain and limited range of motion. Joint/muscle pain is usually a normal part of aging however with RA, these symptoms may be present when the person is younger.

Statistics by the National Institute of Health (NIH) show that 71 out of 100,000 people get diagnosed with RA each year. Now that may be a small number but your symptoms should not be overlooked. Women are also 3 times more likely to get RA compared to men.

It is induced because of excessive presence of lactic acid, uric acid or fibrin in the blood which should be removed from the body normally. Read on to find out how these fluids are developed in our body.

When any part of the body like your head, shoulder, tail bone or hip experiences a fall or mental/physical injury it produces shock in your whole nervous system. This shock stops the normal functioning of the kidney, brain, heart, lungs and lymphatics. Normal blood circulation is affected and many abnormal fluids in the body are produced (mentioned above). These fluids start circulating in the system and begins accumulating in the membranes. As time goes by, these impure fluids congest, ferment and decompose in the body.

The venous blood or deoxygenated blood gets obstructed in the region of cervical spine and the cerebellum by the contraction of the muscle. This further misaligns the cervical vertebra leading to inflammation, giving rise to rheumatism. This inflammation can alter a person's daily working capacity and should be treated when diagnosed. Severe cases may even increase risk of heart attack and stroke.
