I am glad to see this article and believe it is absolutely true. I believe it encompasses "emotional" pain also, which can cause "shallow" breathing, I know this is true in my case, that when I do deep breathing exercises my whole body feels better, especially the joints affected by osteoarthritis.
And I have alway's felt that "crunch dieting is a cause, because when I was younger I did alot of strict dieting and I felt it in my bones, I would describe it as feeling like "the marrow of my bones were being sucked out.

Sandy, I invite you to join our Group,

We deal w/AutoImmune Diseases,Fibro
and Chronic Pain.

Like Sandy, I also suffer from chronic and disabling pain (caused by
several diseases). I find most Doctors unable or unwilling to treat
chronic pain. As a Society, we must
address this issue NOW! As this article states, Pain is a condition
itself and so does lead to further
damaging diseases like depression,
and other mental as well as physical
life altering conditions.

Thank you for a great and timely
article!

Usually osteoarthritis develops from injury which is caused by accident or being overweight. It is best that once a person is already feeling overweight to start getting back in shape to avoid any kind of injury. See also http://www.depuypinnaclelawsuit.com/

Did you know that the most common problem attributed with hip pain is osteoarthritis? Although other forms of arthritis can be culprits as well, such as rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic arthritis and gouty arthritis. Hence, if hip pain bothers you, consult your physician and get checked for osteoarthritis. It is vital to make an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your symptoms so that appropriate treatment can be directed at the core problem.

There are several factors that need to be taken into careful account before the cause of a certain ailment may be determined. The development of ostoarthritis may also be affected by a list of numerous factors. These may include repeated stress, ageing, being overweight, among many others. It's best to get educated and discuss any pain a patient may be experiencing with his or her doctor for prompt examination, diagnosis, and appropriate treatment.

On osteoarthritis, consult your doctor immediately for you to be given proper medication and treatment so as to prevent your pains from getting worse. Remember that before you start taking any medication or undergo any treatment, make sure that it is doctor recommended. It is important that you go through a medical check-up first to determine the proper medication you should take and exercises you should do. Related information here: http://www.depuysettlements.com
