Rheumatism at a young age?
“I hurt my knees during a badminton game last year. The recent weather change has caused me to experience joint pain. I thought rheumatism only happens to older people?”

CheckCheckCin: Rheumatism is commonly thought as a type of chronic joint pain, and the condition will become worse when there is a change in weather. In Chinese medicine theories, rheumatism refers to the pathogenic factors of wind and dampness. When the three qi – wind, cold, and dampness – gather in the body, it caused the ‘bi’ impediment, the ‘bi’ here refers to ‘Bi Zheng’, or painful obstructive syndrome. ‘Bi Zheng’ refers to the obstruction that hinders body from performing its function.

During rainy season, the pathogenic factors of wind and dampness are more intense. The dampness and wind pathogens can invade the body and disrupt the flow of qi in the meridians. Individuals with such condition will feel greater pain.

The pathogenic factor of wind belongs to ‘Xing Bi’, which causes irregular joint pain, and you can sense heat and cold at different body parts. The pathogenic factor of cold belongs to ‘Tong Bi’, where individuals can feel excruciating joint pain at a specific area, but will improve with an increase in temperature. The pathogenic factor of dampness belongs to ‘Zhu Bi’, where individuals with this condition would experience constant sore, pain and swelling.

Physically weak individuals who suffer from chronic diseases or had damaged their joints might be prone to rheumatism, as these conditions allowed the external pathogenic factors to invade the body. Rheumatism is not an age-defined condition. It is often associated with the elderly because they have weaker health system; hence, they would have higher chances of getting the rheumatic diseases.

Young people with conditions above will also have an equal chance of contracting rheumatism, so please do not treat it lightly. Consult a registered Chinese physician for advice, and at the same time, massage the Zu San Li and Sea of Blood acupoints at your free time. Individuals constantly exposed to wind and cold can try Moxa, or the moxibustion therapy, to improve the circulation of the meridians.
