Arthritis is a disorder of the joints in the body that manifests as inflammation of certain joints, causing pain that is sometimes excruciating. Most common forms of arthritis are osteo-arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or septic arthritis. Whatever the form of arthritis, Yoga offers a way to deal with the causes and symptoms. Regular practice of Yoga helps in setting right auto-immune disorders that cause arthritis, reduces inflammation in joints and also enhances our ability to tolerate pain, making it a comprehensive approach of self healing rather than a conventional arthritis treatment that makes one dependent on ant-inflammatory drugs. This Yoga for arthritis course is very useful for anyone suffering from arthritis in hands or knee or any other part of the body as long as one practices it regularly.
