The major complaint that patients who have Arthritis is pain. Arthritis makes it very difficult for individuals to be physically active and causes limitation of movement.

Most drugs available in medical stores are suppressants that only alleviate pain. People who are inflicted with arthritis have indeed lost hope and learn to live with it for the rest of their lives.

This group has been created to find ways of healing arthritis in a holistic attempt to cure the pain permanently rather than suppress it.

Osteo Arthritis is the absence of cartilage tissue between the joints that causes wear and tear of bones due to friction. This causes unbearable pain.

A new born baby's skeletal system is made of cartilage. Gradually, bones are formed from these cartilages through a process called ossification.

When the bones are fully formed, a part of the cartilage remains as tissue between two connecting bones. This cartilage once destroyed is very hard to replace.

To understand more about arthritis, it is important to understand the function of cartilage, what it is made of and other things related to it.
