Arthritis Remedies

Are you looking for conservative treatments for your osteoarthritis knee pain?  Do you want to avoid taking more medicine?  Looking to postpone knee replacement surgery?
Here are some options to discuss with your doctor:
  • Weight Loss
  • Exercise
  • Stretching
  • Glucosamine / Chondroitin
  • Knee Braces
Try using a knee brace to get you up and moving.  If you can control your knee pain long enough to exercise and stretch you may start losing weight.  Losing weight is one of the best treatment options available for relieving knee joint pain.
If you put your mind to it, and you’re serious, you can be an instrumental part of your arthritis treatment protocol.
