How to cure Reactive Arthritis

Reactive arthritis, like many autoimmune conditions, does not have a cure, but treatment can help manage symptoms and improve quality of life.

How to cure Reactive Arthritis 

The primary goals of treatment for reactive arthritis are to relieve pain and inflammation, treat the underlying infection (if present), and prevent complications. Here are some approaches to managing reactive arthritis:

Medications: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs): NSAIDs like ibuprofen or naproxen can help relieve pain and reduce inflammation in the joints.

Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs): DMARDs such as methotrexate may be prescribed for more severe cases of reactive arthritis to help control inflammation and prevent joint damage.

Antibiotics: If reactive arthritis is triggered by an infection, such as a sexually transmitted infection or gastrointestinal infection, antibiotics may be prescribed to treat the underlying infection.

Lifestyle Changes: Making certain lifestyle changes can help manage symptoms and improve overall health

Maintaining a healthy weight: Excess weight can put added stress on the joints, worsening symptoms of reactive arthritis. Losing weight if necessary can help reduce pain and improve mobility.

Supportive Treatments: Other treatments that may provide relief include using heat or cold packs on affected joints, wearing supportive footwear, and using assistive devices such as braces or splints to support weakened joints.
