Can I Reduce my Symptoms of Osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis is difficult to treat without professional assistance, especially when caused by a genetic predisposition. Strengthening the muscles around the knee can support the joint and reduce discomfort, and regular stretching can help keep the joint flexible. If you are overweight, adopting a healthy lifestyle can help mitigate symptoms of osteoarthritis. Even losing a minor amount of weight can reduce the stress on your knees and ward off the development of bone spurs and other symptoms.
Be sure to consult a medical professional before starting any diet, exercise routine, or other treatment. Your medical history and other factors could impact the best treatment option for your specific condition.
