What is arthritis and how can back present help me to relief chronic pain?
Arthritis as “a common condition that causes pain and inflammation in a joint.
In the UK, around 10 million people have arthritis.
The two most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis (around 8 million people) and rheumatoid arthritis” (NHS).
The difference between osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis is the cause behind the joint condition.
Osteoarthritis is caused by wear and tear. It often appears with old age however the young can also get this condition.
Rheumatoid arthritis is caused by autoantibodies produced by your immune system and this autoimmune disorder triggers an inflammatory response in your body's joints, commonly the joints of your hands and feet. Genetics may play a role however other causes like smoking for instance can also be a risk factor.
“With osteoarthritis […], the cartilage around the joint wears out, causing the bones in the joint to rub together, [generating friction] and creating inflammation and pain.
Most forms of arthritis can occur in any joint, including spine joints. Osteoarthritis of the spine can lead to lost flexibility, bone spurs (osteophytes), irritated nerves, spinal stenosis, and [pain in the legs that feel dull and achy and that often moves around and varies in intensity]. The terms spondylosis or degenerative joint disease are used interchangeably with osteoarthritis” (Spine-Health.com).
Rheumatoid arthritis progressively leads to the destruction of cartilage and results in a visible deformity, commonly of the hands and feet. The condition is also often accompanied by other symptoms such like fatigue and fever.
NHS advises that “there’s no cure for arthritis, but there are many treatments that can help slow down the condition”. You should visit your GP to find out about treatments. Medications are often prescribed and in severe cases, surgical procedures may be recommended.
A combination of treatments can help to manage the pain in addition to slowing down the progress of the condition.
On this subject, Arthritis Research UK offers great guidance on self-management and wellbeing therapies such like hydrotherapy, physiotherapy etc.
BACK PRESENT AND PAIN RELIEF
The intense wellness induced by back present helps you to achieve pain relief. When lying on your back present, the spikes stimulate the nerves under your skin and when you feel a bearable tingling sensation for a couple of minutes, you then get a rush of pleasure and feeling of euphoria for 30 to 45 minutes.
When you feel the tingling sensation, it moves from your body to your brain via impulses conducted along your nerves (nervous system) and in response, the brain tells your nerves to calm down and to regulate the perception of tingling, you get an “endorphin rush” - this is how back present works on your body.
Endorphins are the body’s very own painkillers. They are neurotransmitters and work as chemicals that are released in the brain to trigger a natural feeling of pleasure.
