Arthritis is a highly misunderstood condition. It refers to joint pain or joint disease in general, and greater than 50 million Americans have some form of arthritis. It is most common among women, becomes more frequent as people get older is the leading cause of disability in the nation. The Osteo Relief Institute are dedicated to the fight against osteoarthritis.
The most common type of arthritis is osteoarthritis, or degenerative joint disease. Degeneration of cartilage between joints causes osteoarthritis. As this cartilage thins, bones rub against each other, causing pain, stiffness and swelling.
There is no cure for the condition, but the Osteo Relief Institute recommends a few as-home treatment options which may help:
Gentle stretching before bed will help people wake up less stiff in the morning, as will walking around every half hour or so, especially when sitting or working for long periods.
Avoiding repetitive movements–putting too much pressure on one joint may lead to injury.
Weight loss removes stress from joints, which can relieve weight-related osteoarthritis.
Remember that low-impact exercise like swimming, aerobic riding, or cycling can help reduce weight and improve mood without putting high-impact on an already-damaged joint.
The Osteo Relief Institute offers one of the most advanced OA knee treatments available.

The Osteo Relief Institute’s goal is to help patients on their feet and better than ever without surgery, and to provide long-lasting pain relief. It offers a free introductory screening to see if their treatment options may be helpful for patients.
