Arthritis is a common cause of joint pain especially in elderly. It has become one of the leading causes of disability worldwide. The term arthritis does not denote just 1 disease----but is a complex disorder that includes several distinct conditions. The commonest types of arthritis are----osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Although, the cause, risk factors, and effects of various types of arthritis are different they have a common symptom—persistent joint pain.
Arthritis usually develops gradually. The common symptoms of arthritis are painful joint movements, stiffness, contractures, and limitation of movement of the joint.


The prescription medications used to treat arthritis can cause several side effects and are not very effective in controlling symptoms. Due to these limitations of the prescription medications people with arthritis often go for alternative therapies like homeopathic medicines.
But a dilemma is ----whether these treatments work? And are they safe?
