what is inflammation?
when any offending agent enters the body, the immune system is activated to kill the external entity or reach the injury site to initiate healing. In the first phase, inflammatory cells and cytokines are released in the blood to trap the bacteria to heal the injured side which eventually results in swelling, pain, and bruising. A body experiences two types of inflammation that are:
acute inflammation: Acute inflammation is a result of any injury or damage to the body cells. Inflammatory cells reach the injured site and begin the healing process to make sure that the body keeps working optimally despite the damage.
During chronic inflammation, our body keeps sending in symmetry self even if there is no injury or harmful entity in the body. Chronic inflammation occurs in the case of inflammatory health conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis in multiple sclerosis. It can cause deformities and chronic pain along with swelling.
