History of arthritis cure:
The first known reference of arthritis in human dates back to the 4500B.C. they were mainly found in the skeletal remains of the Native Americans also known as the Red Indians, in Tennessee and parts of Kansas. Historical evidences of the willow bark were found in the scriptures of the Pharaohs of Egypt for curing and relieving the aches and pains of arthritis. The European scientists only began to search and scientifically study the chemical compounds that were found in the willow bark for alleviating the symptoms of arthritis in the early 1820’s.
The scientists successively found the evidences of a chemical called the salicin in the bark of the willow tree. However when isolation of salicin was done it was found that the compound was very noxious to the stomach and made it almost impossible for oral ingestion. It was only after 80 years, in the year 1897 that an employee of the Bayer Company a dye production unit named Felix Hoffman discovered a proper isolation method of salicin that made the chemical less irritating to the stomach. This gave birth to the legendary drug called the Aspirin and today it is believed that more a trillion of these tablets were sold across the world.
Usage of kneecap for arthritis:
The kneecap also known by the name of patella plays a significant role in maintaining the balance and structure of the legs as well as the entire human body. Especially in the cases of Osteoarthritis the kneecaps are the parts of the body that is affected most. The knee joint is the intersection point where the thighbone meets the shinbone and is covered by a thick layer of cartilage tissues that promotes smooth movements of the two bones without any friction. Upon the development of arthritis in the kneecaps this layer of cartilage starts roughening and eventually fades. As a result the bones in the joint cannot move without friction and starts paining severely. Fortunately the treatment of arthritis of the kneecaps is possible even though at present no drugs have been found to proven to stop the symptoms of Osteoarthritis completely. Doctors recommend the usage of painkillers and anti-inflammatory medicines and topical creams to help ease the pain for the removal of the stiffness of the bones.
