I was at an excellent seminar sponsered by the Arthritis Foundation & Cleveland Clinic in Westlake, Ohio last week. I was amazed at the number of attendees who do not understand their condition which was evident by their questions & conversations.
Osteoarthritis is a rough road since the mechanics of it are not fully understood. It's called the wear & tear arthritis which it is to some extinct but we don't understand why this happens. Other than NSAIDS & pain meds there are no medication regiment for this disease. As with the state of medicine today, there are lots of ways to treat the symptoms and few ways to stop the cartilege destruction .
I am totally frustrated. I don't want to spend the rest of my days doing exercises, using ill designed, pain in the ass braces, living on tylenol & NSAIDS, ice & heat & joint replacements & joint revisions. Who ele feels this way & what are you doing about it?
