About the Book
The two most common types of arthritis in the United States are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Together, these diseases affect more than 22 million
Americans, many of whom believe that there is no reliable, practical, or affordable treatment for their pain and discomfort. This work, designed as a comprehensive resource handbook for patients suffering from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, provides a user-friendly guide to modern holistic, medical, and surgical treatments.
The author provides a thorough overview of the most popular conservative treatments--including pain medications, exercise, nutrition therapy, and alternative health treatments. The author also provides a guide to more invasive surgical approaches, providing helpful resources and tips for selecting a surgeon, preparing for surgery, and facilitating a healthy recovery.
