Water aids in Arthritis Pain

Water and Arthritis

Arthritis pain and stiffness is now understood to be initially a result of increased friction and swelling in the bone joints. Our body uses water to lubricate these joints. When our water levels are reduced, especially as we age, there is increased friction between the cartilage surfaces resulting in swelling, stiffness and pain. The amount of total body water decreases with age, as does what is often known as the thirst mechanism. This is why many people, as they age, have little desire to drink water. The movement of the joints cause a suction that pulls water from the bone marrow to the joint cavity if there is available water through proper hydration. An increased intake of water and gentle rhythmic movements of the joints can ease and in many cases overcome arthritic pain.

A more detailed explanation of this is outlined in the book, The Body’s Many Cries For Water by Dr. F. Batmanghelidj.
