Re: chronic wrist pain

Hi all
Although I've been a lurker for quite some time this is my first posting.
In the last few years I have had chronic joint pains in my knees and wrists and other places. I've been diagnosed with osteo-arthritis, but the doctors have not offered me any way of treating it. I've been taking glucosomine, but it doesn't seem to help. I've learned to deal with my knee problem and am trying to strengthen the muscles there with various exercises, but I am particularly concerned with my wrists right now. The pain has become a real impediment in much of my aikido practice. I was wondering if anyone knows of any treatments for the wrists or of any way of strengthening them.

Hi, im very sorry to hear about your osteo-arthritis, and i dont mean to sound like i think that i am a doctor or anything like that, but i do work at GNC and i try to keep a good general-knowledge of our products, so, i suggest taking a Glucosamine-Chondroitin-MSM blend. Such as GNC's Triflex. It should help alot with your joint problems, and we have a Fast-Acting blend that you can try that has White Willow Bark in it among other natural herbs, that is supposed to ease pain within a week and helps with long-term benifits in as little as 2 weeks.

in aiki,
