Do Not Underestimate The Value Of Arthritis Research

Apr 28, 2008
Joints, bones and ligaments are the parts of your body that are often affected by arthritis. Not only is this very inconvenient it is often very painful and makes that a person suffering from this disease feels like a disabled person. Arthritis is a name for a group of similar forms of diseases they may differ in cause. Research into arthritis is an ongoing thing and it has already shown us some eye opening facts. Facts ranging from the condition of the disease as well as what effects medicines, negative and positive, can have on the person suffering from arthritis.

Doctors also see the great value of ongoing arthritis research, if it wasn't for the research they would not have known in such detail what the effects are of the medicine they prescribe to their patients who have a form of arthritis. Also all the knowledge that come from researching the disease about the cause of the different forms of the condition. If you look at how many people that are suffering from it in one form or another also shows why there is such a bog need for good and broad arthritis research. I the United States alone almost two thirds of the population probable suffers from a from of this disease.

The for arthritis research

There are still forms of arthritis that are not understood fully and that is a very good reason to continue with the research. Patients and doctors have a need to fully understand this disease. The results we get from the research on arthritis give us a way to understand what makes this condition appear and what we can do to reduce the painful effects or even prevent it from injuring people.

Beside being a good source of knowledge about the symptoms and causes of the disease arthritis research is also a way to get a good understanding of what the effects of the prescribed medications are. The problem with medication is and will always be that some side effects only surface after a long time of taking them and with ongoing research in this field we can get a good picture of the long term effects of arthritis specific medication. Research helps to understand these, most times, bad side effects and what we can do against them.

Research also helps in development of new, alternative means of treating arthritis. The people conducting these studies will always look to have no or as little as possible side effects in new drugs or treatments that are new for treating arthritis. Present medication for arthritis hold to many side effects from which a lot are not really desired. Some medication give an undesired side effect when it is taken over a long period in time another gives a different kind of reaction with some people.

A lot of people who suffer from the many forms of arthritis keep in contact with hospitals or clinics or even patient groups just to know what the latest research teaches us. People suffering from this disease should subscribe to newsletters or e-mail listings that keep them informed.
