Overview

Here is the first major book on preventing arthritis, from the trusted authors of The Miracle of MSM. One of every five Americans will develop osteoarthritis, the painful degeneration of joints associated with aging. Osteoarthritis can destroy more than joints. It often leads to inactivity, obesity, depression, anxiety, and dependence on drugs, with serious side effects, and can increase the risk of developing life-threatening illnesses such as cardiovascular disease.

In Preventing Arthritis, Dr. Ronald M. Lawrence, a physician who has specialized in the study of pain for fifty years, lays out a menu of powerful natural options for arthritis prevention: diet, supplements, nontraumatic exercise, and specific yoga and self-massage techniques. He identifies the kinds of daily habits that cause structural stresses in the body, and even explains how sex may protect your joints. Sharing his clinical experience in helping more than 150,000 patients, Dr. Lawrence reveals the very latest in arthritis prevention research and gives recommendations based on his own practice as well as the work of medical experts from across the country.

There are many books on how to treat arthritis. This is the first to offer practical, effective plans for preventing the disease.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Lawrence, a neurologist with expertise in pain, geriatrics, and sports medicine, has worked with health writer Zucker to produce a balanced program for preventing and coping with osteoarthritis. The authors previously collaborated, with Stanley Jacob, on The Miracle of MSM: The Natural Solution for Pain. Their latest effort discusses the osteoarthritis disease process and how it can be prevented or minimized by exercise, appropriate body mechanics, diet, supplements, and complementary/alternative therapies. Though the book is written at a high reading level, medical terminology is explained in context. The authors include appropriate disclaimers (advice to consult with a physician) and references to scientific literature, as well as information from interviews with alternative therapy experts. Individual case reports are used to illustrate the benefits of health practices advocated throughout the book, and web references are included in the text for additional information on supplements and alternative therapies. This book will appeal to health-conscious readers who have some awareness of the problems created by arthritis, as well as to those in the early stages of arthritis. Recommended for public and consumer health libraries. Margaret Allen, Library Consultant, Stratford, WI Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
