Like everything else, there’s a lot of hearsay when it comes to one of the earliest diseases known to mankind, the big ‘A’ – arthritis. Let’s get about busting some of these myths
All joint pain is arthritis
Totally fictitious. There are several other conditions that can cause joint pain such as tendonitis, bursitis or other soft-tissue injuries, celiac disease, etc.
Arthritis affects only the old
Absolutely not! Anyone from a toddler of 1 to an octogenarian, and anyone in between, and beyond, can fall prey to it. Data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that two-thirds of people with arthritis are younger than 65, and a recent study found that it affects nearly 1 in 250 children
There’s just one type of arthritis
The truth is that there are several types of arthritis. Types of arthritis that are categorized by joint swelling, such as rheumatoid and psoriatic, can occur at any age

Exercise in any, and every, form is always healthy. However, there’s the golden rule of exercising, please do not use the ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. And, kindly don’t exercise when you are in pain.
