PILLARS OF INFLAMMATION : Five pillars of inflammation are pain, swelling of edema,redness,heat and loss of function. PROCESSES BEHIND EACH PILLAR : When there is injury then these pillars are activated and perform in different ways: 1.Pain cause release of chemical by damaged cells. 2.Swelling or Edema : due to an influx of fluid into the damaged region 3.Redness :due to vasodilatation- the widening of blood vessels and bleeding in the joint or structure. 4.Heat : due to an increase in blood flow to the area 5.Loss of function: due to increased swelling and pain.
