An end to joint stiffness and pain

Over my entire life, even before I’d learned of Christian Science, I experienced very good health, including normal weight, energy, and freedom from the use of even common remedies. Once I began to study Christian Science, I realized that health belongs to all of us by divine right because we are the children of God, whose entire creation is whole and good.

About a year ago, however, I noticed that when I awoke in the morning, there was stiffness in my right hand, and my ring finger was bent over. As the days went by, the other fingers also became stiff, and I could not bend them back into place without pain. I wondered fearfully whether this condition was going to get even worse. Was it one of those ailments that ends with the suffix itis and is attributable to aging? 

This was clearly an opportunity to turn to Christian Science for healing. I remembered a paragraph in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, which Mary Baker Eddy introduces with the sentence “Christian Science brings to the body the sunlight of Truth, which invigorates and purifies.” She goes on to enumerate the many kinds of healings that have occurred through Christian Science, including “ankylosed joints have been made supple” (p. 162).
