Arthritis has been stereotyped with “old age condition”, causing pain, fatigue and weakness in the affected muscles and joints.
There are several types of arthritis. Some can be serious and life-threatening due to their effects on the body. One such type of arthritis is ankylosing spondylitis (AS). This mostly affects the spine, causing it to become inflamed and results in stiffness and pain from the neck down to the buttocks.
For many years, it was thought that osteoarthritis flare ups could not be affected by your diet, or exercising.
But science is ever-expanding and our understanding of this unique ailment is deepening by the day.
Recent research shows that inflammatory diseases and the flare ups they entail can in fact be affected – either in a negative or a positive way – through diet and exercise.
This is very good news because it means that those formerly ‘stuck’ with this ailment are no longer constrained and can actually experience relief and alleviation from the pain and suffering of osteoarthritis.
