Once you pass a certain age, the advertisements find you.
They’re on TV. You find them shoved into your mailbox. They show up in your email. And you even start to spot them on the websites that you visit.
It seems everyone is trying to sell you a drug for your arthritis. And then there are all the products from special shoes to massagers that guarantee pain relief.
Some of it works. Some of it doesn’t. It’s truly hit or miss (with the drugs mostly being a MISS).
Now new research reveals what may be the easiest way yet to slow the arthritis damage and avoid worsening pain. But you won’t see any ads for this solution because there’s nothing to sell.
Beat arthritis pain with this simple move
The new study confirms something that I’ve shared with you before. Your knees actually NEED some daily motion. They’re more likely to get stiffer and achier if they don’t get it.
I know that likely goes against your natural instincts. After all, we tend to think of an arthritic knee as delicate. And in some ways, it is.
With arthritis, your knees become brittle on the inside as the cartilage that cushions the joint starts to crumble. As the disease advances, you get that painful bone-on-bone grinding that turns what’s left into dust.
So most people slow down and take it easy. But as the new study shows, that’s the exact wrong approach. In fact, walking regularly cuts the risk of new pain by an astounding 40 percent.
With arthritis when you experience new or worse pain it’s typically caused by worsening joint degeneration. But it appears that the simple act of walking could slow or even stop that progression.
It’s most effective if you start early, as soon as you’re diagnosed. But the truth is walking can help nearly anyone with knee pain regardless of how far your condition has progressed.
So unless you’ve been specifically told by your doctor to limit activity, a daily walking habit could help head off the arthritis pain today and more damage tomorrow.
Getting even MORE pain relief
I know it might seem a little farfetched at first. If walking really worked, why would anyone ever get knee pain in the first place?
But the truth is many folks simply don’t even try it. In fact, a study last year found nearly a third of arthritis patients typically get close to zero activity. And many others get only slightly more.
That’s not just a recipe for more knee pain. That can also lead to weight gain, diabetes, heart disease, and more.
So don’t let this easy, drug-free, and cost-free pain-fighting option slip through your fingers (or maybe I should say toes). Get out and get moving daily.
But when it comes to arthritis, it’s not just about the pain, of course. You have to think about joint damage too. And a pain-relieving walk alone just won’t cut it.
You need to provide your knees with the raw materials they need to…
- make their own repairs,
- maintain the remaining cartilage
- restore mobility
- ensure comfort and flexibility
And when you do that, you will be able to KEEP walking while enjoying every step of the journey.
For that, consider type II collagen, a proven natural therapy made from chicken cartilage. In one study, type-II collagen slashed pain in arthritis patients by 40 percent delivering nearly three times the benefits of tried and true glucosamine and chondroitin.
And if someone suggests surgery to relieve your arthritis issues check out my earlier report, “Reconsider going under the knife for pain problems,” BEFORE you agree to the operation.
