Clotting Problems

NSAID use can interfere with the clotting of blood.  This series of blog posts is about the possible side effects associated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs used to treat knee osteoarthritis.

If the efficiency of your body’s ability to clot blood is affected you may bruise easily or have trouble stopping bleeding if you are cut or lacerated.

A study published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery concluded that neoprene knee sleeves can reduce pain and increase function in a knee with osteoarthritis more effectively than NSAIDs.
