This study was motivated by my
interest to link physical and mental health issues. Hence, this is an attempt
to scratch the surface about the relation physical and mental health.
Basically, understanding the interrelation between arthritis symptoms and
psychological mood problems (depression and anxiety) would be crucial because
they seem to be the most common related mood problems in arthritis. Szotek,
2010 reported that “information about the strength of relation and
causal directions could be utilized for shifting the treatment
focus on substantial pathways. This
could prevent people with
arthritis experiencing unneeded worse conditions of the disease by
itself and comorbidity. Appreciating the affective modality and effective
strength of several psychosocial factors on pain and fatigue as well as their
mediating effect on the relation between pain and fatigue and problematic moods
would also compose a precious contribution in treating this health conditions.
Several confounders or covariates as stress, self-efficacy and social support
are gently manageable through improving person’s self-management. As combined
with pharmaceuticals for the biological markers of
arthritis, disease conditions and
the relation between them
and psychological problems could be treated more effectively than
only medical treatments of the main symptoms. Moreover, this combined therapy
could evoke fewer side effects because of lower doses of drugs. A fully
understanding of the disease could also provide room for research
on developing new therapy models exactly
catered to rheumatoid arthritis”.
subsequent sections provide background information needed to establish to
understand how our body works and what happens when one get rheumatic
symptoms. First of all lets answer this questions: What is the difference
between rheumatism and rheumatism? Basically, Arthritis is any joint
disease that sometimes causes damage. Arthritis literally means arthritis. Its
source comes from two Greek words: arthron, which means detailed, and itis,
which means inflammation; it is also used to describe any type of arthritis,
even if there is no inflammation. Whereasa, rheumatism is commonly used to
include aches and pains in the bones, muscles, joints and tissues surrounding
the joints. Rheumatism therefore includes arthritis.
Medical experts prefer not to use these ambiguous words and instead talk about
rheumatic diseases, rheumatic disorders, or musculoskeletal disorders.
Disorders affect several different parts of the musculoskeletal system in
Rheumatoid arthritis, for example, begins in the synovial membrane, while the
cartilage joint is first affected by osteoarthritis. A brief explanation of how
the device works can help you understand the problem and how to address it
better. As we know from basic biology and anatomy, the skeletal system is
linked by joints, called synovial, if it is moving. These joints include
shoulder, hip, knee and elbow. The synovial joint is inserted into a
cauliflower covered with a synovial membrane, which contains a synovial liquid
that acts as a lubrication of the joint where the bone meets one bone in the
joint, covering a material called the articular cartilage. The synovial fluid
is pumped in and out of this cartilage once the joint moves or relaxes.
