Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, affecting millions of people worldwide. It occurs when the protective cartilage on the ends of your bones wears down over time.
Although osteoarthritis can damage any joint in your body, the disorder most commonly affects joints in your hands, knees, hips and spine.
Osteoarthritis symptoms can usually be effectively managed short-term, although the underlying process cannot be reversed. Staying active, maintaining a healthy weight and other treatments may slow progression of the disease and help improve pain and joint function for time being.
COMMON SYMPTOMS ASSOCIATED WITH Osteoarthritis
Pain - Your joint may hurt during or after movement.
Tenderness - Your joint may feel tender when you apply light pressure to it.
Stiffness - Joint stiffness may be most noticeable when you wake up in the morning or after a period of inactivity.
Loss of flexibility - You may not be able to move your joint through its full range of motion.
Grating sensation - You may hear or feel a grating sensation when you use the joint.
Bone spurs - These extra bits of bone, which feel like hard lumps, may form around the affected joint.
Since structure is rarely the real cause of pain, doing anything to treat yourself physically could never produce more than temporary relief. Doctors focus on treating the symptoms and not the real source of your pain.
MODERN BREAKTHROUGH AND MORE EFFECTIVE THERAPY
Remember this before seeking treatment for degenerated discs... 2 out of 3 people who have NEVER had pain or other symptoms have tendonitis, spinal stenosis, bulging discs, herniated discs, and other structural abnormalities like osteoarthritis.
So what does this mean for you?
It means that while the tests may show these structural abnormalities exist, they almost never have anything to do with the cause of your pain. If they did, all those millions of people wouldn’t be completely free of pain. That’s why everything you’ve tried so far has only provided some temporary relief.
Then the pain and other symptoms come rushing back again and again...
The latest neuroscience studies have shown that the cause of pain, and other symptoms based on structure and physiology, actually have a psycho-physical cause associated with stress and tension.
You already know that stress and tension exacerbate your pain. What you’ve never known before right now is that what causes your stress and tension is what actually causes your pain. The same pain that is almost always incorrectly blamed on your osteoarthritis.
Over 30 years of scientific and neuroscientific research have determined this outcome. The biggest benefit for you is that the real cause of most pain has been determined. You have new options to relieve your pain that were completely unavailable before. This stops the days of ongoing pain management and adds the possibility for millions of people to use a conservative, safe and proven method to permanently eliminate their pain and other symptoms.
A purely intellectual and emotion focused approach pioneered by Dr. John Sarno in the 1970’s has proven exceptionally effective for people diagnosed with bulging disc, herniated disc, fibromyalgia, spinal stenosis, radiculopathy, whiplash, sciatica, migraine headaches and other incomplete diagnoses.
While most doctors are not aware of this concept, millions of people have been helped through the work of Dr. Sarno and many other doctors and experts since then. You too can benefit by opening up your mind to this alternate reason for your pain and the simple approach to ending your symptoms.
The downside is that not everyone can be pain free. The upside is that there is a Pain Test that has been scientifically developed to provide an objective result based on your specific situation. This will provide you exactly what you need to know about whether or not you can permanently end your pain.
