How Doctors Secretly Reverse Their Arthritis

Everyone will have joint pain occasionally, but when it becomes frequent, chances are it is arthritis. As we get older, arthritis, or joint inflammation, can happen and the CDC reports that “In the U.S., 24% of all adults, or about 58.5 million people, currently have arthritis. It’s the top cause of work disability, with yearly costs for lost earnings and medical care of $303.5 billion.” Dr. Hascalovici said. “Although there isn’t a cure for arthritis currently, there are many treatment options available. The goal of a lot of these arthritis treatments is to restore and maintain your joint mobility, while helping to keep your pain levels lower.” That said, there are several things we could do to help reverse arthritis, said Dr. Hascalovici. You can read his tips below.

1 — Physical Therapy and exercise

Dr. Hascalovici says, “Light exercise and physical therapy could be a big part of your arthritis treatment plan.  A stretching routine that is prescribed by a professional could lower the pressure placed on your joints while also helping your body relax.”


2 — Anti-Inflammatory Diet

“Nutritional supplements or Anti-inflammatory diet: Inflammation that’s associated with arthritis could sometimes be managed by consuming whole, plant-based foods with a lot of natural nutrients and fiber. Raspberries, pomegranate, blueberries and strawberry juices might all play a role in helping to relieve arthritis symptoms because of the antioxidant properties that are in them,” Dr. Hascalovici said. “Natural supplements that might relieve pain for arthritis patients include chondroitin and glucosamine. I sometimes suggest my patients make some changes to their diets or try new supplements as part of a multi-pronged approach to treatment and pain management.”

3 — OTC Medications

According to Dr. Hascalovici, “Physicians use NSAIDs such as naproxen and acetaminophen to treat many things that cause inflammation or pain, including arthritis. They all make pain and inflammation more manageable, but each individual will experience the possible side effects and pain relief differently.”

4 — Topical Pain Relief Creams

Dr. Hascalovici says, “Topical pain relief creams that you rub into your skin might include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory ingredients. Indomethacin, diclofenac sodium and Ibuprofen are all ingredients that could reduce inflammation to help manage your pain level. As an added bonus, applying an NSAID pain reliever topically will come with less side effects than a pain-relief pill. However, a lot of topicals that contain NSAID ingredients do require a prescription.”
