Re: Osteoarthritis

Ostreoarthritis is a type of inflammation problem that arthritis sufferers are most likely to have. It is very commonly found in people who are 55 or older. Accidents, sports injuries, fractures are also common causes of osteoarthritis. Doctors always recommend NSAIDs instead of acetaninophen. These may include aspirin, ibuprofen or naproxen. Some natural supplements are also there which include glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate.

No, that would be rheumatoid arthritis which is often accompanied by osteoarthritis; the wearing out or damage of a joint.

Anyways, OptiMSM has worked well to relieve pain because it helps strengthen the joint.

Hi Cindy,

One of the best things you can do for your knees is to keep a normal weight and to exercise and keep yourself strong. You should count yourself among the lucky ones that it took an xray to discover it and not daily increasing pain. It may never amount to much-your injury will heal and you will be fine. In the future, if your knees or other joints become painful, I would suggest you see a rheumatologist to manage your treatment instead of just your GP.

Good healing

Margarita
