Quick Overview

Osteoarthritis is a very common problem, affecting up to 30 million people. What are the best ways to ease joint pain?

Product Description

When joints become stiff or painful, they can get in the way of important activities like gardening, cooking, playing tennis, going up or down stairs or walking the dog. While we think of osteoarthritis as a condition that primarily affects older people, it turns out that most people with this condition aren’t yet eligible for Medicare. As many as 30 million people may suffer with this condition.

How Can You Ease Joint Pain?

Many people with arthritis take NSAID medication to ease joint pain. Unfortunately, many discover that the relief is elusive and the side effects are all too real. We will discuss pros and cons of the most common drug treatments.

What are the optimal strategies for treating osteoarthritis? Can nondrug approaches like exercise or a diet with anti-inflammatory foods help ease joint pain?
