Typically, due to aging, most of us can get Osteoarthritis as we get older. Osteoarthritis is a kind of disease that is degenerative that affects a person’s joints in which pain are associated. Aside from the wear and tear of life, there are also some factors to Osteoarthritis such as trauma, obesity, and other diseases as well. When the bone surfaces are exposed due to the damaged from its cartilage, then this causes the pain. The exposed bone surfaces will now become defenseless or vulnerable even to minor insults and there is a big tendency to acquire damages on the affected area. Inflammation will be the result from this damage because the body’s natural mechanism for defense or the immune system will activate thus causing some immune cells to go to the affected area and causes redness, swelling, and pain on the area.
Due to the immense swelling and pain, patients suffering from these conditions should take Celebrex 200 mg as their medication. Celebrex 200 mg is the most recommended drug by doctors because it is economical and safe. Celebrex 200 mg does not only limit the pain but also the swelling and inflammation. But Celebrex 200 mg is not the only treatment for Osteoarthritis, meaning there is no single way to treat this kind of condition, there is also a patient participation that involves some activities to change his or her lifestyle, and also weight reduction aside from the use of supplements such as Celebrex 200 mg.
Celebrex 200 mg or Celecoxib which is an anti-inflammatory drug controls inflammation thus prevents additional harm to the affected joints and reduces the pain that a patient is suffering. Celebrex 200 mg contains an enzyme called COX-2 (Cyclooxygenase-2) that acts in the body. These enzymes ensures that the inflammation process can be controlled or limited by blocking the production of prostaglandins produced from this enzyme that is needed for the normal response of the immune system. In short, Celebrex 200 mg is a selective Cyclooxygenase-2 blocker which controls the pain and inflammation of Osteoarthritis. It is a safe drug because unlike other similar drugs, it does not contains any risk in a person’s stomach nor avoids gastric ulcer development.
