Beating osteoarthritis knee pain: Beyond special shoes
We have plenty of fairy tales about shoes that work magic in people’s lives: glass slippers that brought love to Cinderella, and sparkly red heels that gave Dorothy powers in MGM’s version of The Wizard of Oz. In real life, footwear magic is limited to “unloading” shoes that may help relieve knee pain from osteoarthritis. These unloading shoes have stiffer soles, and slightly tilted insoles that reposition the foot, intended to reduce (or unload) strain on the knee. But a study published online July 12, 2016, in Annals of Internal Medicine suggests that unloading shoes are no better than a good pair...

Ask JJ: Osteoarthritis
Dear JJ: I'm a 67-year-old woman who recently got diagnosed with osteoarthritis. My doctor warned me as an older woman, I'm more susceptible to this problem along with fractures and other problems it presents. I don't want to go on prescription drugs, and I know you're big on natural remedies. Can you help me out here? Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disease, the most common form of arthritis, and sometimes called the "wear and tear" arthritis. A little background: Bones intersect to form a joint. Those bones need a buffer to prevent painful friction. Cartilage--a tough, flexible connective tissue ...

The Degradative Soup of Injury and Arthritis
New studies have shown that when a meniscus tissue is torn in the knee, enzymes and factors are released, creating a degradative soup that affects healing and eventually leads to arthritis. Injury to joint tissues used to be thought of in primarily mechanical terms. Torn ligaments led to instability; a torn meniscus led to arthritis, both from the window wiper effect of the tissue in the joint and the force concentration from losing the shock absorber; impact injuries led to bone and cartilage death. [1] We now understand that this thinking was far too narrow. Papers presented at the 29th Meniscus Transplant Study Grou...

The Entrepreneur Behind New York's Latest Health Food Craze
Marco Canora has long been a chef's chef, turning out seemingly simple dishes that require years of training to prepare consistently and well. He's received wide-ranging accolades for his restaurants, including Hearth in New York City's East Village. Yet today Canora is achieving new fame for a food that takes almost no skill to make, uses no fancy ingredients, and is completely unglamorous: bone broth. Bone broth is exactly what it sounds like: a pile of animal bones, covered in water; some vegetable scraps; and often a bit of cider vinegar -- all boiled until the bones crumble. But despite -- or because of -- its simpli...

Dietary Supplements for Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis (OA), which affects an estimated 27 million Americans, is a leading cause of disability in older adults. Because the general population is aging and obesity, a major risk factor, is increasing in prevalence, the occurrence of osteoarthritis is on the rise. Clinical practice guidelines issued by the American College of Rheumatology recommend aerobic exercise and/or strength training, weight loss (if overweight), and a number of pharmacological and non-pharmacological modalities for treating OA of the knee, hip, or hand. Many people with OA report trying various dietary supplements in an effort to relieve...

Glucosamine and Chondroitin
Picture:  Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are natural substances found in and around the cells of cartilage. Glucosamine is an amino sugar that the body produces and distributes in cartilage and other connective tissue, and chondroitin sulfate is a complex carbohydrate that helps cartilage retain water. In the United States, glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are sold as dietary supplements, which are regulated as foods rather than drugs. (Source: NCCAM Featured Content)
