Rheumatoid Arthritis is an auto-immune inflammatory arthritis that if it is not treated it can slowly destroy the joints of the shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers, knees, ankles and feet.
Medication and anti-inflammatory diet are the most important methods to stop the disease and avoid joint destruction.
Exercises are used in conjunction with medications to preserve the function of the joints, to avoid disability, to improve morning stiffness and to reduce pain.
