Weight Loss is Best Medicine for Knee OA

The Best OA Knee Pain Relief

Best Medicine for Knee OA

It is well documented that one of the most effective treatments to decrease pain in arthritic knees is weight loss.

Losing only 15 pounds can decrease knee pain by half and slow the progression of the disease.

The problem many patients have is a catch-22.  They need to lose weight but their painful knees prevent them from exercising.  Conservative treatments like joint supplements and knee braces can help!  The idea is to help you walk a little farther, sweat a little more, or exercise a little longer.  The cumulative effect over time can help you lose weight thus making your knees feel better.
