One of the main ways to combat the degenerative effects of osteoarthritis is through therapy. Not only will taking part in therapy help to alleviate your pain associated with the disease, but it can improve your overall health as well. Strengthening the muscles around an arthritic joint will both increase your range of motion and diminish your pain.

Another effective means of combating osteoarthritis is the use of specialized arthritis knee braces. These braces compress and heat the joint, which helps to relieve pain, support the joint and restore mobility. Many of these braces are made of neoprene, which provides an unparalleled level of comfort and a custom fit.
