    Hi "drunkknucklehead", exercise can be very beneficial for osteoarthritic knees sufferers, often relieving stiffnessin joints, strengthening muscles there byreducing stress on joints, keeping bone and cartilage tissue strong and healthy, and increasing flexibility.

    A recommended 30-minute minimum of daily activity is the norm.

    Using aquatics: exercising in a pool-is agreat way to exercise as well.

    Water is an excellent aid because it provides resistance that builds muscle in the entire body while reducing shock to the joint sat the same time.

    Exercise the joints to strengthen the muscles supporting the joints. This will help in the process of pain alleviation. Stronger muscles mean stronger joints. Some of the most common exercises you can do are swimming, biking or rowing. These are useful for your health without straining your knees.

    Lose that excess weight. Join a gym; prevent your knees from crashing under your excess weight. Apply wintergreen lotion; it produces heat which helps in relieving pain. If that does not suffice, after applying the lotion wrap the area with plastic to maintain the increase in temperature. Be careful to avoid any burns and skin irritation.

    Buy a good pair of shoes that give support and absorb impact well. You can use ice compress over the sore knee for not more than 20 minutes for every hour. You can use Bromelain, made from pineapple, a natural anti-inflammatory to speed up healing. For the pain to subdue take three tablets a day till you have recovered. Bromelain can cause dermatitis in some people, if the itching begins stop the dosage.

    Nutritional supplements like glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin sulfate, niacinamide (vitamin B3), S-adenosyl-methionine (SAMe), and vitamin E may also be useful in treating knee pain due to osteoarthritis.

    Herbs like Cat’s claw (Uncaria tomentosa), Devil’s claw (Harpagophytum procumbens), Ginger (Zingiber officinale), and Boswellia (Boswellia serrata) may also be very useful in addressing this problem. Please look article: http://www.askedweb.com/askedweb/Home_Remedies_For...
