Arthritis is a common condition that affects around 10million people in the UK, with common symptoms being pain and inflammation within and around the joints. There are various types of arthritis, with the most common being osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. As we grow older, our joints find it more difficult to heal, therefore there is an increased risk of arthritis developing. One of the biggest factors for developing arthritis is being overweight, this is due to the excess weight and strain that is put on the joints, especially around the knees. Other factors that can lead to arthritis are serious injuries, repeated use of a certain joint or a broken bone near a joint.
Currently there is no cure for arthritis, however there are various products that can help to calm symptoms and slow down the disease. Gels, such as Voltarol and Flexiseq can help to reduce pain and help to increase joint mobility. All arthritis and pain relief gels are available with Free mainland UK delivery.
