Dr. Myasnikov urged to take care of joints from a young age: what helps with osteoarthritis?

Doctor and TV presenter Alexander Myasnikov noted that even in the treatment of cancer, promising developments can be seen, but there are diseases that have not yet been treated. We are talking about osteoarthritis, with which, according to the doctor, “so far everything is mute.”

– Only regular exercise is realistic, regardless of the degree of pain, age, degree of radiological changes, and weight loss. All! Well, painkillers, Myasnikov wrote on his blog.

Over time, the pain becomes mixed, forming a vicious circle: both inflammation and neuralgia.

The doctor claims that neither of the new approaches in the treatment of osteoarthritis did not show a long-term effect. This is a 40+ disease. Myasnikov urged to take care of your joints. Take care of your joints from your youth, then no one and nothing will help. 

Risk factors for osteoarthritis:

  • joint injuries,
  • overweight,
  • weak muscles,
  • smoking,
  • physical inactivity.
