Treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis

A chronic case of arthritis, the rheumatoid arthritis, is an inflammatory disorder that initially affects the joints and spreads to other body systems. In addition to joints, the other parts affected by this disease are eyes, skin, lungs, blood vessels and heart.Rheumatoid arthritis is an auto immune disorder, that occurs when the immune system mistakes the body tissues to be a foreign body and attacks it. The tissues affected is usually the ones lining the membranes around the joints. The joints affected by this disease appear red and swollen with severe pain during movement. The inflammation that develops around the joint, thickens the membrane effectively destroying the bone and cartilage with time.
