Your Osteoarthritis Explained

Osteoarthritis is the most common degenerative joint disease in the United States. It most frequently occurs in women, and is known to develop with age, although it can occur with young people after injury to the joints. Osteoarthritis is the most frequently claimed disability in our country.

 

Osteoarthritis is a disease that attacks the tissues of the bones. It then causes bones to rub against each other. This causes pain and excessive stiffness. With disuse, pain can become chronic. There is currently no cure for osteoarthritis. The good news is that there are effective treatments for Osteoarthritis.

 

Treatments available today include self care options such as:

 

*Weight control and exercise

Low impact-cardio exercise that won’t strain your joints can greatly improve range-of-motion as well as rebuild muscles surrounding your bones. Weight reduction is a proven way to significantly relieve joint strain.

 

*Change your daily routine

Making simple changes in your daily routine can have a huge impact on your stiffness and pain. Doing stretches before bedtime and changing your movement throughout the day, can relieve pain and strain on your joints.

 

*Non-drug pain relief techniques

Thermotherapy, or using heat or cold techniques is often used to relieve osteoarthritis pain. Ask your medical team at Osteo Relief Institute what other pain relief techniques may be used for your treatment/and or pain.

 

There are many medications available for help with your Osteoporosis. It should be noted that all medications have some risk and side effects.
