: I am writing on behalf of my wife.She has a deteriating
: disk,which causes her a lot of pain.Now they say she
: has osteo arthritis in her back as well as her thumbs.
: They are talking about some kind of therapy,not for sure what kind.
: Can anyone tell me their experience with therapy on this subject.
: Also are there any ideas of what can be done for a deteriating disk?
: Does glucosamine help the arthritis?
Has she tried a chiropractor? I have a deteriating disk also, and chiropractic care really makes a difference for me. Glucosamine seems to help some people, but I've heard that it can elevate colesterol.
