    The treatment of arthritis is very dependent on the precise type of arthritis present. An accurate diagnosis increases the chances for successful treatment. Treatments available include physical therapy, splinting, cold-pack application, paraffin wax dips, anti-inflammatory medications, immune-altering medications, and surgical operations.

    Treatment of Arthritis varies from person to person, and each case should be treated separately, the daily routine of a person should also be examined. The age and occupation of a person is also taken into consideration when the doctor works with a treatment plan.
    The treatment will focus on eliminating the underlying cause of arthritis, the cause might not necessarily be curable, like rheumatoid arthritis. The treatment therefore aims at reducing the pain and also discomforting and preventing further disability. It is now possible to improve the symptoms of arthtitis and the long term types of arthritis without the medications. The changes in the lifestyle without the medication will be better in case of osteoarthritis and for some of the other forms of joint inflammation. These medications should also be used in the addition to lifestyle changes.
    Exercise is also necessary to maintain a healthy joints and also to relieve stiffness, also in order to reduce pain and fatigue, and also in improving muscle and bone strength. You have to work with a physical therapist in order to design the individualized program, which includes:
    Low impact aerobic activity, range of motion exercises for flexibility, strength training for the muscle tone. Rest is also very important and as useful as exercise. You can sleep upto 8 to 10 hours per night and take naps during the day.
