Arthritis Report

Hello Readers.  I am hoping for some feedback from our loyal audience.  How often should we be posting on our blog?  Monthly, weekly, daily?  Please let us know how often you would like to hear from us.  We are here for you.  Our blog is designed to help you find and understand the conservative treatments available to provide your arthritic knees with pain relief.  Please reply to this post and let us know what you think!

Osteoarthritis Treatments are our business.  Specifically knee osteoarthritis.



Many people think that arthritis is a singular disorder, but there are two distinct types, each of which affects the body differently. Osteoarthritis occurs when cartilage is worn down and two bones begin to grind on one another, which causes pain and limits range of motion. This condition can be expedited due to a joint injury or infection.  Luckily, several joint supplements are available to help combat the debilitating effects of this disease.

The other form of the disease is known as rheumatoid arthritis. With this condition, the body’s own immune system attacks joints, causing inflammation and pain. Eventually, this disease can lead to cartilage decomposition and other health risks.  This blog is intended only for those suffering from Osteoarthritis, not rheumatoid arthritis.
