Remedies for Arthritis and its Side Effects
When it comes to remedies for arthritis, there are many myths and hype that obscure the truth of ther real efficacy. Presently, the only types of arthritis that can be cured are those cases caused by infections; in other words, the septic arthritis. In reality, there is no cure for the majority of cases of arthritis and drug treatment is the main form of management of pain.
To manage pain, the use of analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in oral forms are traditionally employed. However, these treatments are normally associated with side effects like nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, upset stomach, drowsiness, headache, and loss of appetite.
Because of these associated side effects, there is an increase in available alternatives to the usual anti-inflammatory oral treatments for arthritis. These alternatives come in the form of topical nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) in sprays or gels.
