Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that causes chronic inflammation of the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis can also cause inflammation of the tissue around the joints, as well as in other organs in the body. Autoimmune diseases are illnesses that occur when the body’s tissues are mistakenly attacked by their own immune system. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, systemic inflammatory disorder that may affect many tissues and organs, but principally attacks synovial joints. The synovial joints, also known as diarthroses, comprise most of the joints in the human body. These movable joints, or articulations, are named for their structure, which consists of connective tissue and secreted fluid that hold together the bones while allowing smooth movement. Although the cause of rheumatoid arthritis is unknown, autoimmunity plays a pivotal role in both its chronicity and progression. Get back to the pain free life you deserve.
I felt constant pain in my shoulders and neck due to my rheumatoid arthritis. Some days I couldn't raise my arms because of the pain. After 3 injections I had no more pain. It has been 2 months since my last injection and still no pain.
I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, lumbar arthritis and degenerative disc disease eight years ago. About two months ago it went from bad to severe and I was pretty much bed ridden. I was difficult to walk or sit and I could never find a comfortable sleeping position. Within 36 hours of my first treatment I knew something good was happening, it was like the pain control knob was turned down from 10 to 4. I got better after each treatment and I have now started an exercise program that includes walking, stretching, isometrics and resistance training, not bad for only 4 weeks. Going from bedridden to active in one month fits my definition of a life saving procedure.
