Put an end to distressing arthritis pain and stiffness

Living Well with Osteoarthritis: A guide to keeping your joints healthy

Discover how — as never before — you can control your arthritis, relieve your aches and pains, and regain the joys of an active and rewarding life!

More than 50 million Americans have osteoarthritis. And once you get it, you've got it. It doesn't go away. You can't "cure" it. But you can curb it. You can contain it. You can control it.
That's what Living Well with Osteoarthritis is all about. It's packed with the information you need to confront and control your arthritis.
You'll read about advances that are making a real difference, medications that are both effective and safe, and strategies that are helping men and women reclaim mobility and banish agonizing joint pain.
Doctors aren't exactly sure what precipitates arthritis. It may simply be wear and tear, or it could be other factors, including injuries and genetics. Whatever the cause, you can do something about the effects. And you can live without the aches and aggravation.
In Living Well with Osteoarthritis you will learn about diagnostic tools that are helping physicians better understand — and address — arthritis pain. You'll be briefed on assistive devices and complementary therapies. And the report compares more than 40 medications used to treat arthritis — topical and oral, over-the-counter and prescription — for effectiveness, safety, and possible side effects.
You'll discover why women get knee osteoarthritis more often than men (and how some women can cut their risk in half). You'll learn the ten questions to ask yourself — and your doctor — before considering joint replacement surgery. And you'll even find out if knuckle cracking causes arthritis!
The report will tell you whether it's worth trying a "hands-on" approach such as acupuncture or massage. It cautions you against two therapies that are no longer recommended. And it looks at important advances in treating other forms of arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis and gout.
Plus, a special section offers a host of things you can do on your own to make coping with arthritis easier. You'll be introduced to helpful tools, pain-relieving exercises, smart food and menu ideas, and much more.
There's no reason to ache when you can act. Order your copy of this Special Health Report now.
