Arthritis and joint pain become very common as one age. From feeling the pain while sitting or standing to swellings in the joint, people are increasingly suffering from joint pain. Neck, back, knee, wrists pain have become overtly common during the lockdown because of long working hours. Sitting in one position for work for long hours is also a reason for people suffering from arthritis.
Arthritis is of two types. One is osteoarthritis that results from the breakdown of the cartilage and the other is rheumatoid arthritis which is caused by weak immunity. The reason behind all this is the lack of exercise and a bad lifestyle. Swami Ramdev, in a special show on India TV, shares effective yoga asanas and pranayamas that are effective in treating Arthritis and joint pain.
