Knee Pain From OA

Knee Arthritis

Knee Arthritis

If you’re experiencing knee pain due to osteoarthritis, cheer up, it’s not all bad news.  You are much better off now then those who had OA just 20 years ago.  Medications, hyaluronic acid, supplements, arthritis knee braces, surgeries, stem cells…the treatment options are much more advanced.  And one of the most important changes is in education.  There are so many more resources.  There are so many places to learn about knee osteoarthritis.

Our advice is take it slow.  It took years for your OA to develop, the pain isn’t going to go away over night.  Learn as much as you can and develop a treatment plan that is correct for you.  Ask your doctor lots of questions.  Don’t be afraid to discontinue a treatment that isn’t working.  Lose weight, strengthen your legs, stretch….there are so many things you can be doing to improve your knee pain.

Chin up, get your learn on, and be your own hero.
