Tendonitis is an inflammation of the tendons, the fibrous muscles that connect muscles to bones (Tennis elbow would be a classic example). A calcium deposit often accompanies tendonitis, causing inflammation. Bursitis is the inflammation of the fibrous sac that cushions the tendons.
The first thing that one needs to learn when dealing with arthritis pain is to be able to manage it. Whether your pain is excruciating or merely a minor bother, it is not fun.
We have discussed the importance of exercise in increasing the odds of beating osteoarthritis in previous articles. Now, we are going to add some simple stretching exercises that can be added to your arthritis-beating regimen.

That walk you take does even more!
By J. R. Rogers
For those of you who read these chronicles know by now that I am a strong advocate for even a little exercise. Without a doubt, your joints will “thank you” for doing this.
But that is not the only benefit you gain. In reading a recent article I saw something that caught my eye. It was discussing the benefits of walking right after you eat a (greasy) meal. Of course, sensible eating habits are also a gain on arthritis. You lose weight and your lower body in particular does not have to bear a heavier weight load.
What’s this study say?
This study focused on the fact that if you walk after eating that greasy hamburger (or, similar foods) you can actually gain some (additional) ground on heart health. Basically, walking immediately after consuming these foods that we all know are not very good for us gives your arteries some real advantages.
Normally, eating greasy foods causes your arteries to lose elasticity for about six hours. However, if you take a 45-minute walk with a couple of hours after consuming these foods you are going to get the same heart beat response you would if you ate a non-greasy meal and did nothing.
The gains always outweigh the time you spend
I have always said that walking is a favored exercise and for those who suffer from arthritis it is very important. Now, considering that we (all) give in to temptation to eat these foods that are not good for us, I think that it gives us all more incentive to do it.
Let’s face the facts here. Your joints are crying out for more exercise to shed excessive pounds. And, we even get a little slack when we do give in to that urge to eat something less than healthy.
I have to think that this is a “win-win” for every one of us.
See you next time.

These past months in The Arthritis Chronicle, I've talked about my Eight Day Arthritis Ecourse that I had written. I had originally intended to give this informational course away free for only one issue, but due to the tremendous response and good word of mouth this course has brought, I have decided to give it away at no charge.
This Arthritis Course is packed with quality information on what you should know before you talk to your doctor, the arthritis diagnosis, treatment options, treatment side effects, glucosamine, tips on proper diets and exercise, weight management, alternative options, and an easy to understand explanation of what exactly arthritis is, how it occurs, and the effect on cartilage including a discussion of chondrocytes, collagen, proteoglycans, glycosaminoglycans, and synovial fluid.
If you are committed to taking the right steps towards effectively easing arthritis pain and knowing all your options, then this course will be extremely helpful to you.
The course is spread out over an eight day period and a new part of the course is sent each day right to your email inbox.
Once you begin your course above, you will receive one article each day delivered right to your email inbox. The daily topics are:
