How is headache arthritis ligament rupture related to free radicals?
There are many causes of pain. Pain occurs even when pierced by a sharp needle. Pain occurs even if it is struck by a stick. Not all of these pains are covered in this article. It deals only with pain caused by energy metabolism.
Pain inflammation rupture and free radicals: the destructive activity of free radicals
A pure oxygen atom with 8 electrons lacks 2 electrons. It is eager to take it from the surrounding atoms. These pure oxygen atoms themselves are called free radical because they are highly reactive.
In the previous article (the principle of generating free radical in the process of energy metabolism), it was said that free radical is generated in our body during the process of energy metabolism. As soon as free radicals are generated, they immediately steal two electrons from nearby muscle fibers or brain cells. So it destroys muscle fibers or brain cells.
It cannot be said that free radicals have bad feelings in muscle fibers or brain cells. You can just say, “It follows the fate that nature has set.” :)
Pain inflammation rupture and free radicals: causes of pain at the cellular level
Please note that muscle fibers and brain cells are the organs in which energy metabolism occurs mainly in our body. When we move or think, we need energy.
Pain occurs when free radicals destroy muscle fibers. Excessive physical exertion causes muscle pain. When free radicals destroy brain cells, pain occurs. Working overnight and overworking your brain can cause headaches.
Energy metabolism → free radicals → muscle fiber destruction / brain cell destruction → muscle pain / headache
In this way, the cause of pain can be identified at the cellular level.
Pain inflammation rupture and free radicals: ligament rupture
What if the cell unit grows. For example, there are ligaments attached to the knee joint. Ligaments are made up of muscle fibers. The muscle fibers of the ligaments are destroyed by free radicals. When this is repeated over and over again, the ligaments rupture.
Energy metabolism → free radical → ligament muscle fiber destruction → ligament rupture
Pain inflammation rupture and free radicals: arthritis
Bacteria can enter the ruptured area of the knee ligament. Then an inflammatory reaction occurs in our body. The inflammatory reaction is the reaction of immune cells in your body to attack bacteria. The knee joint hurts because the ligaments are attached to the knee joint. Arthritis is this.
Energy metabolism → free radicals → ligament muscle fiber destruction → ligament rupture → arthritis
Pain Inflammation Rupture and Free radicals: Cases of diseases caused by free radicals
There are over 200 bones in our body. The tissue that connects this bone to the bone is the ligament. Sometimes it connects bones and muscles. This is called a tendon. Ligaments and tendons are tissues that become slow to regenerate after being destroyed. So, a lot of rupture and a lot of inflammation occurs. Joints are where ligaments and tendons are concentrated in our body. The shoulders, knees, wrists, elbows, and ankles are the largest joints. Pain inflammation caused by energy metabolism is widely distributed in this area.
Shoulder frozen shoulder knee arthritis, elbow medial epidermal inflammation, wrist arthritis, etc.
We cannot live without physical activity and brain activity. To be active, you need to generate energy. That's why diseases caused by energy metabolism are very widespread. More precisely, it is due to free radical. I realize that free radicals are the source of all diseases.
