Joint Pain Relief
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 14.6 million Americans suffered from severe joint pain as of 2014. An increase of 4.1 million since 2002 and the numbers continue to rise. Arthritis continues to be a leading cause of disability. While most arthritis patients are over the age of 65, it can affect anyone, and younger people get it all the time.
Joint pain can come as the result of a strain from an accident or from chronic conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, which typically has an earlier onset. People are typically diagnosed with RA at 30-60 years old but can affect even young children. Joint pain can also result from something as simple as a repetitive motion like typing or another job-related movement.
With so many at risk of developing joint pain, we make a special effort to research and provide ideas, treatments, and solutions to help you avoid or treat joint pain once it begins. While covering a wide variety of ideas and an array of diseases, there is one common theme that envelopes all joint pain: inflammation. Inflammation causes pain by pressing on the nerve endings in the surrounding tissue. For more about how inflammation causes pain, visit our article, Inflammation: Why it causes chronic pain and how to treat it.
Choosing an Omega-3 supplement to help with the inflammation in your body can be an important step in dealing with your joint pain. While NSAIDs have been used for years, long-term use becomes riskier, especially at higher doses. Bleeding, ulcers, stroke, certain cancers, and even death have been linked to long-term NSAID use. Try Omega-3's natural pain relief first. Find out how to choose the most effective supplement for yourself here.
