If you are among the millions who suffer from osteoarthritis we do not have to tell you about pain. Nagging, persistent and at times unbearable pain is a way of life for you. For most of you, the search for relief from this grinding pain is a chore in and of itself.
My name is J. R. Rogers and this is the story of how I beat one of the most dramatic pain problems imaginable. You see, in 1993 I sustained a very serious traumatic injury to my spine. So bad in fact, my upper spine was crushing the cord and I could not even walk in a straight line.
The spinal fluid was not getting though the cord and my vertebrae were deteriorating rapidly. Now, using what I have learned I have been able to help thousands of people fully end or significantly reduce their pain problems.
While exact numbers differ widely, according to USA Today, there are 60 million Americans who suffer from Osteoarthritis. Whether your pain is in your knees, neck, hands, shoulders or any other joint, there have been some important advances made in treating these conditions. I'm going to discuss these advances with you and explain in detail how this information can help you take control of your osteoarthritis.
What the medical community has to say Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common type of arthritis and its typical targets are your hands, hips, knees, feet and spine. Sometimes, it will attack your knuckles, wrists, elbows and shoulders.
I should mention that these are not the only areas of your body subject to attack however. There are 143 joints in the human body and any of them may be subject to osteoarthritis.
When OA attacks it causes a degeneration of the cartilage and fluids that protect against the bone structures in your body.
For those of you who live with this debilitating disease, you are all too familiar with what the doctors have to say. Some will tell you to take one of those "over-the-counter" remedies. You know…products like Aspirin, Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen (Called NSAIDs, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).
In fact, some $8 Billion dollars a year is spent on these kinds of products in this country every year. Unfortunately, when it comes to using them to fight the pain of osteoarthritis, they can do you more harm than good.
Although you will obtain some temporary pain relief using them, there is also evidence that indicates that they will also cause a progression of osteoarthritis. Not only do they not stop joint degeneration, they are also associated with stomach ulcers and liver damage.
In the more serious cases of OA, doctors will take more extreme steps by ordering dangerous steroid injections or prescribing COX-2 inhibitors, pills like Celebrex and Vioxx that block the Cox-2 enzyme.
While you might get some temporary pain relief, you are clearly more prone to dangerous side effects like heart attacks and strokes and they will do nothing to help you with the core of the problem. After all, what you are really seeking is two-fold. First and foremost, you want your pain to end.
Secondly, you want to address the medical problem itself and end (or reverse) the progression of your OA.
The big announcement that set America on its ear There are many that are already aware of this effective in treating osteoarthritis. It has been widely used in Europe and Asia for the past two decades and in the U.S. for about five years now. This compound is Glucosamine.
On January 21, 2001 MSNBC (a major cable news group in the U.S.) reported on the findings published in The Lancet medical journal regarding the use of glucosamine in treating osteoarthritis. Countless television commentaries and newspaper stories were soon to follow with the expected result.
Everyone began searching for the "perfect" glucosamine product and there was no shortage of choices. (Just because I was aware of the European research certainly didn't mean the rest of the country was.)
Glucosamine is an over-the-counter dietary supplement that has gained a lot of attention from this recent coverage. It is completely safe, as it is a natural, non-toxic compound, and mounting evidence suggests Glucosamine not only stops the pain, but it also rebuilds cartilage, improves the structure of joints and can reverse the progression of Osteoarthritis.
Suddenly, every company in America 'hit the market' with a glucosamine product that (they) claimed was the solution you had been looking for. After all, it's the American Way. If a product is in demand, everyone wants to get on the bandwagon.
Unfortunately, most of you were quick to learn that Glucosamine was no "magic bullet." For most, you experienced exactly what I had already been through. These glucosamine products didn't fully diminish your pain or in some cases did not work at all. (Does this sound at all familiar?)
Unfortunately, with store shelves and mail-order catalogs crammed with choices the task of finding a product that works has only become more difficult. Television commercials flood your living room every day with glucosamine ads.
Direct mail pieces arrive in your mailbox bearing some celebrity's face and they are all insisting the product they are endorsing is the one you are looking for. But what really makes one Glucosamine product than another? What should you look for?
I will next look at exactly how Glucosamine works and then come back to these important questions.
The Science - That article in The Lancet medical journal came about as a result of studies conducted in Lourdes, Belgium. At last, the American public as well as the medical community was aware of objective evidence that glucosamine indeed worked as a treatment for osteoarthritis. Incredible news for the medical community since after all, glucosamine is a nutritional supplement. But that's not all.
This study had even more to say: "Previous studies had indicated that glucosamine could dull the pain of Arthritis, but experts say the latest study shows for the first time that it could improve the structure of the joints."
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS - London "Improve the structure of the joints." Now that is very important language. This study not only concluded that pain could be managed, but as well the damage from osteoarthritis could be reversed. That's pretty remarkable stuff, but is it real?
[Since this report is quite long, I have skipped most of it.]
Let's go back to my story In 1996, the doctors finally got around to operating on my spine. What they had to do is remove leg bone to rebuild my upper spine.
(Think about a stiff rod or piece of wood inside your neck and upper back.) Even after surgery, however, I was left with constant pain; had limited mobility in my neck; and was left to rely on narcotic painkillers just to get by. If you are suffering from osteoarthritis pain, I have walked in your shoes.
Fortunately, I'm not a "quitter." I was determined to learn everything I could about osteoarthritis, joint pain and any possible means to restore my body to its formerly healthy state.
(Of course, I did not have a clue how I was going to do this.) One thing I did know. The doctors had made it clear to me that my condition would only get worse, even though they had operated in time to keep me out of a wheelchair. I knew then that if I were going to have any chance at all, it would be up to me to find the way.
A Doctor With A Vision
Fortunately, the pain management specialist who was treating me was from Europe and unlike most doctors, was willing to listen. When I approached him with what I was learning about glucosamine, (it was now 1997) he didn't "shrug it off." Instead, he was impressed with the information I was finding and encouraged me to "give it a try."
What exactly does the compound do ( This may be a little technical so just do your best to try to gain a little understanding here.) Glucosamine is a "chondroprotective agent", which relieves the symptoms of OA without any side effects while at the same time slowing the progression of the disease. And what is a "chondroprotective agent?"
Glucosamine (and chondroitin) is produced naturally within your body. However, it is not produced in sufficient quantities once you have developed osteoarthritis. That is the reason that we must rely on "synthetic" products to replenish our systems.
What has happened to your body when you have osteoarthritis is that the cartilage (that acts as a "cushion" between bones) has deteriorated. Healthy (articular) cartilage is what we need to make movement and motion of our joints pain free (In other words, it allows bones to move across one another providing an ultra-smooth, slippery surface to do so).
Most of the products I was able to buy back then were in either pill or capsule form. Believe me, I was trying just about every one I could afford. Unfortunately, I didn't seem to be making any real progress. My pain hadn't changed and of course, I had no way of knowing what changes if any were going on inside of my body.
If the research was correct, glucosamine should have been taking care of my pain and reversing my osteoarthritis damage. You could not have proved it by using me as an example. It was now late in 1998 and I didn't seem to be getting anywhere. I had to ask myself some tough questions.
Was all that research a waste of time? Or, was my case just so bad that glucosamine was just not going to help? Somehow, I convinced myself that I was on the right track but there was something missing from the equation.
