4th of July and OA

4th of July and OA

A great way to treat your knee osteoarthritis is with a healthy diet.  Eating right can reduce pain and increase function in your arthritic knees.  For every ten pounds a person is overweight the stress on their knees increases by 30 to 40 pounds.  Multiple studies have shown that losing weight will ease the pain of knee osteoarthritis.

If you have OA, manage your diet this holiday weekend and manage your pain.  Enjoy your 4th of July BBQ – just enjoy it with more fruits and vegetables.
