about rheumatoid arthritis. Do you have it? You must see this video for
signs, symptoms and treatment. – Right. This is one of those things that, I don’t know if it’s my age or what, but I’ve been seeing
more and more friends, family members and
patients, with the diagnosis and it’s like, I didn’t
know enough about it so I was like, I want to

– Cordless massager. Handheld massager. You can also go to Facebook Bob and Brad. It’s pinned to the top of the page. This is a nice massager, Brad.
– Oh, yeah. – I mean, for the price,
for 40 bucks, I mean. – Right, yep. – Most of these are like a hundred bucks. – Right, and if you’re reciprocating it’s a good value. – It’s percussing.
– Right. Reciprocating, percussing? I thought it was the same. – Reciprocating is a saw, isn’t it? We digress.
– Anyways, let’s go on with rheumatoid. So, like I had mentioned, Bob, and what really got me going on this is. We had a guest speaker, about
a year ago, on rheumatoid. A family member of mine
just got diagnosed with it. And actually another
one and then, you know, over the years you see it with patients. And a lot of people are wondering, like right now, I have– – Arthritis.
– Stiffness in my fingers. I get up in the morning and it’s like, and particularly one of my
finger joints is really stiff and it gets painful. And I’m wondering, maybe it’s RA? – If you notice, that’s your
middle finger, by the way. It’s not being over-used is it? – Bob, this is a family show. Let’s keep it intact.
– All right! – So anyways, so what
is rheumatoid arthritis? Let’s get right to it on that point. It’s a chronic disease and
the difference between, there’s quite a few
differences between rheumatoid and your typical osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is like someone
who has a knee replacement or a hip replacement– – Yeah, it’s just the wearing
out of the joint, basically. – Right, and it’s you
know, one or two joints. – Right, it can be single joints. There’s ones that are predominate. – Exactly, a lot of weight-bearing things. – A lot of weigh-bearing joints. – But the big difference with
RA, it’s a systemic problem. It’s an autoimmune
disease, in other words, your body is–
– Attacking itself. – Exactly, so it’s one of those
things that if you have it, you need to be aware of it, because there’s things you can do. We’re gonna talk about
near the end of the video on how to take care of it. – And by systemic, we mean
it’s affecting your whole body. It’s not just affect the joint. Maybe you feel fatigue and
stuff like that because of it. – Right, and we’re gonna get
in those symptoms as well, too. So who has it? What are the statistic on who have it? Most commonly diagnosed with people at the ages between 30 and 60. – Interesting. – Which I didn’t realize
is was down to the 30s. – I didn’t realize that either. – But that was very interesting. And also there’s three times more females than males that have it. – And I was aware of that, only from the fact that
almost, to be honest with you, the vast majority of the
ones I see are female. – Sure, you mean in the clinic. – Yeah, I can’t even remember
too many men that have had it. – Right, well, it’s three to one, so. Some of the symptoms. Now these can vary to a degrees, but these are common ones. Joint pain lasting greater than six weeks. So it’s an on-going pain. – And probably multiple joints. – Right, exactly, often time– – Oh, I’m sorry, I’m jumpin’ ahead. – Don’t worry, Bob, it’s
fine to repeat things. Things come and go in our minds. (laughing) – Afraid it does. – So a little repetition
at our age is helpful. And often times morning stiffness. Getting out of the bed
is very uncomfortable, reports of people with their
feet being very painful when you put weight-bearing through it. And if it lasts longer than 30 minutes, that’s another potential sign. – That morning stiffness
lasts more than 30 minutes. – Yep, 30 minutes. – Because you’re gonna have stiffness with a lot of arthritis,
your osteoarthritis too. But generally as soon
as you’re up and moving it gets better right away. – Right, but this lasts
longer than 30 minutes. And it’s again, multiple joints, often times some of the
smaller joints in the fingers. There’s actually a diagram you can find, it will show the most common sites, but it is throughout the body. – Most common joints, you mean? – Yep, another one, there
could be lumps under the skin. Often times in the fingers. – Okay.
– And then… – Those aren’t the Heberden’s nodes, I think those are more
with osteoarthritis. You know a location-wise on them? – No, well, more commonly in the fingers. – Okay. – But they can be other places, as well. And again, like you said, general fatigue is one.
– Right. – And low-grade fever. – That’s probably one of
the bigger indicators to me is that general fatigue
that you just don’t have the get up and go. It got up and went. – That being said, and of
course these, it comes and goes. People who have RA,
they talk about flares. And it will just flare up where it’s painful just to
get out of bed and just walk. It’s not just for six
o’clock on the morning but it can be throughout the
whole morning, up til noon, that kind of a thing.
– Sure. – It’s not easy to diagnose, necessarily. So just, if you’re
listening to this video, and you have all of these symptoms, and you think, “Oh, I must have RA.” It’s not that easy. You need to go to a doctor and the doctor’s gonna
take a medical history look at your past. They’re gonna take a physical exam. Look at you right in front of them and do a good physical exam. Then a blood test, and there’s a number of
things that sed rate, there’s about two or three different– [Both] Indicators– – That they’ll look out for that. And then they’ll possibly,
scans for your joints. See if you have some actual joint disease. – Joint damage. – Because it’s autoimmune disease attacks, typically join tissue
and it can be permanent. You know, if your joint is damaged by RA, and it’s to a certain degree,
it’s not gonna get better, from what I find. – And you definitely do
want to get diagnosed because, you’re gonna talk
about some of the things, the treatments, right? – Right, treatment options
that are available. And the first one, I would
say this is the first, it depends on the person, is medication. There’s a number of medications. Now, the bad thing about the medications, there can be some bad side effects. The woman that we had on– – Yeah, that’s right. She mentioned the side effects right away. – Right, right– – Almost disabling, weren’t they? – Right, if you google Bob and Brad, RA, rheumatoid arthritis, that
should come up right away. And hers yeah, it was very severe. And actually now, I know her, she is going with no medication, she treats through diet, primarily. And quite successfully. So she’s, that’s been working out. – And as you’ve mentioned, as your second treatment here is the diet. – Right, and I think that’s
pretty much across the board. As well as our third one. But you need to make diet
changes, anti-inflammatory food. – You know, the more you
read about this, Brad, the more you realize that you can actually use foods, almost as medicine. – Right. – In a lot of instances. I’m a big believer. I read the book called, “How Not To Die” and it talks a lot about that
with rheumatoid arthritis. – And you’re still here
so the book must work. – Yeah, that’s right. I’m still kickin’. – Yeah, we’ll keep a little
light-hearted note on this. And that’s of course the third one, which we know is very important, as therapists, is exercise. The thing is, you need to exercise smart. There’s certain, you’re not
gonna go lift heavy weights. You’re not gonna go run
a 5K as fast as you can, that type of thing. But some aerobic exercise, and everyone’s gonna
have different exercises that may be good for them. Dependent on what you like to do, what your body tolerates,
which joints are affected. – Really try to keep movin’. – You really need to keep
those muscles moving, get those joints moving. – And you may have to deal
with it during flare ups, you may not be able to exercise as much, or even at all. But as soon as it calms
down, get back to it. – Right, right. I mentioned this before, but there’s a woman where I swim, and she’s got arthritis
and she’s very particular. She’ll let you know, “If
you’re swimming by me, “do not touch me.” – Oh, really. – ‘Cause if you’re
swimming, your arms go over and you bang hands, it hurts. Just without arthritis. I can just imagine,
with arthritis, if you, I call it a hand kiss. If you get one of those
when you’re swimming. It would be extremely painful. – I am not a swimmer, I didn’t realize there’s these things going on, Brad. – Well, ho ho, if you’re lap swimming, a hand kiss can be painful. – All right.
(laughing) – You didn’t meet your
wife that way, did you? – No, Bob.
– All right. – I should have known something
like that was gonna come up. – Yeah (laughing). – Again, these are the things
you really need to know. But you really need to see a doctor to get diagnosed properly. And then research the
options for treatment. Do what works–
– Ask your doctor about diet. – Right, some doctors are gonna go to it. Some are gonna say, they
focus on medications. – Exactly. – So you gotta get the
right doctor for you. – Very good. – Good luck with it and take care. – Thanks, Brad. (electronic chord) (silence)

  1. Dealing with sciatica so I just ordered the 'Thumper' electric massager. Saw your 'free' giveaway for the hand massager but I couldn't bank on winning so went ahead and ordered one. Can't wait for it to come.

  2. I have RA and I want to thank you for expressing it is systemic and auto immune. I cannot get people to understand it is NOT JUST arthritis. And the fatigue is TERRIBLE. And when I flare I want to be left alone and rest rest rest and cry and cry. I also have muscle, tendon, ligament issues. Dry eyes…irregular heart beat now. I could go on. But I have to say thank you for a great description and educating people.

  3. I'm in the high 30's have some arthritis in some areas of my body. I know that I have some in my left knee but not familiar with which one.

  4. Why do plant based diets help rheumatoid arthritis.

  5. Brad is having good attitude. He is not in saleing and share knowledge based on experience. I tried his exercise. They work better. Bob is not having good sense but he uselessly try for it and share wife and son things.

  6. Really Check the cabinets where you have the signs. At 6:43 in this video you can see a mouse walking by in cabinet where Bob and Brad sign is.

  7. Doctors, don’t dream, guys, they give you pills and pills and pills…for ever. I found YOU and I will keep your exercises. Love from 🇨🇭🇨🇭🇨🇭♥️♥️♥️

  8. I have a couple of friends who have RA and they're both 30s-early 50s, such a young age. I must admit I did fast forward to see the furry mouse! 🐁🐁🐁

  9. I hope someday soon it will be discovered that RA is Not the body attacking Itself. There is something else it is attacking or that causes the body to react that way. Our bodies are immeasurably intelligent and would not just attack itself. To anyone with RA, please know that your body is not defective. It is attacking against some other yet unknown element. My mom has RA and I’ve seen the horrible effects it can have on one’s life. There is more to this disease than the medical industry knows at this point.

  10. As a side – does anyone else think Brad has many facial expressions and mannerisms of Stan Laurel? Or has this already been said before? If not, I surely cannot be the only one to see the similarity.
    Great content videos from these two guys. Really useful and helpful information.

  11. Knowing their risqué sense of humour I was quite relieved Bob didn't go more into Brad's "morning stiffness" 😨

  12. Hello you two amazing guys please can you do something about fibromyalgia been suffering with this for years any cures out there what causes this

  13. Great video on a very serious condition. On a lighter note, i got a kick out of the visiting mouse in the cabinet at 1:30👍

  14. Y’all gots a rodent problem!!!
    Saw the little bugger(s) in the cabinet between 5:00 and 7:00.
    YIKES! 🐀🐀🐀

  15. Brad, if you haven't tried 'low carb' maybe give it a go, my hands/fingers were the same in the morning. I stopped rice, pasta, bread, potato etc & it substantially reduce my symptoms.

  16. Just started Retuxon after Remicade didn't work😓 I'm on my second infusion and no relief yet. I'm very disappointed and discouraged. I need two total knee replacements and I'm only 49. I've tried the inflammation diet for 10 months and it didn't help so I was in pain and mentally stressed about yummy food I used to love I couldn't eat anymore. The only thing that helps me is steroids 😳😓

  17. One thing I wanted to mention..An important issue to look into is basic digestion…most people as they age do not make enpugh hydrochloric acid to properly digest food, that can cause an immense amount of problems..which generally get worse and worse..it can cause auto immune diseases…

  18. Thanks for mentioning diet! More veggies and fresh fruit for better health for everyone!!! How Not To Die from Dr. Micheal Gregor is where I started too. Great book!

  19. I have a herniated disc and bulging disc. What kind of leg workouts can i do to keep my legs in shape if I have these issues? Is there workouts I can do to strengthen up my legs? Id really like to know something I can do without hurting my back please. Thank you

  20. Sadly I have all… rheumatoid disease, O.A n fibromyalgia plus hypothyroidism n prediabetic.. I am obesity since child n healthy then all suddenly it hit me hard w all disease when I was turn 30 yr old.. now I’m working on lose weight n it not easy.. sigh..

  21. What is your take on vaccines and toxins in the environments effect on joint pain / rheumatoid arthritis?

  22. Love your videos but your mics sounds awful. Something better than those face wires must be available 🙂

  23. Bob and Brad I am 61 years old I have DDD in my back neck and shoulders I have arthritis and curvature of the spine I'm in so much pain but I don't want to have any operations I just want to know if there are any exercises that I could do to relieve the pain that I've been suffering with .

  24. This arthritis treatment method “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it) is a good product. My condition involved fractured spine, hip dysplasia & acute arthritis in both hips. I`ve utilized this during the winter and when my big toe knuckle gets painful because of wearing shoes. I have tried out plenty of products. It`s really difficult to find some thing to help with the hips. .
