Know Your Knees (Tips For Folks With Knee Arthritis)

About 9 million Americans have knee arthritis, or knee osteoarthritis. It's especially common among older adults. The right treatment can reduce pain and stiffness so you can stay active and enjoy life more. Rubbing your knees daily with Unker's Therapeutic Salve will help. Here are some important things to know about knee osteoarthritis. 

Knee arthritis occurs when the cartilage of the knee joint gradually erodes.  Without the gliding, cushioning effect of cartilage, the bones of the knee joint rub together. The knee can't move easily and becomes stiff, swollen, and painful. Early symptoms of knee arthritis may be aching joints after physical activity or stiffness first thing in the morning. With time, symptoms may occur more often. It becomes harder to walk, climb stairs, and get in and out of chairs. To relieve pain and stay active, you may need a multipronged approach. Weight loss, exercise, medication, alternative therapies, and surgery are some of the options.

Lose some weight. Losing just a little of your current weight can improve your symptoms greatly. Every pound lost takes 4 pounds of stress off your knees. Like anything else the more pounds your knees have to support the harder it is for them to do so. Low-impact aerobic exercise, such as walking, swimming, water aerobics, and bicycling, relieves arthritis pain. Stretching and strengthening your leg muscles helps, too. 
 
Acetaminophen, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and topical creams and sprays such as Unker's Therapeutic Salve are common therapies. Mild narcotic painkillers and injections of drugs that tame inflammation or improve joint lubrication are sometimes used. Which medication is best for you depends on the severity of your pain, your other health problems, and the other medicines you take. Consult your doctor or family physician. 
 
Physical therapy can improve joint function, while occupational therapy teaches you how to move smarter to minimize pain. Acupuncture, massage, and electrical stimulation of the nerves (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, or TENS) improve symptoms for some people.  A good night's sleep and a healthy diet will help you cope better with your arthritis. When pain or discomfort occur, apply hot or cold packs or warm towels to your knee, or take a warm bath. Cold lessens inflammation, while heat boosts circulation and eases pain and stiffness.
 
In knee replacement surgery, the entire knee or part of the knee is replaced with metal or plastic parts. This major surgical procedure can decrease pain and swelling and improve movement when the knee is very damaged.  Removal of loose pieces of cartilage, smoothing of the knee's bony surfaces, and realignment of the bones are other surgical procedures that can reduce pain and disability.
 
We encourage you to keep a jar of Unker's handy for day-to-day use, while a more severe case should be seen by your doctor.
