DATUK Dr Prabha Singh was in pain, and there was nothing much that could be done about it.
The three basic types of arthritis affecting the knee are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and post-traumatic arthritis. Knee pain and stiffness can develop gradually or have sudden onset. Often, pain is worse in the morning after inactivity, but can also increase after physical activities such as walking, climbing or kneeling. Doctors use a physical exam to evaluate walking, range of motion and joint tenderness. Also, X-rays, MRI and blood tests may be used to diagnose knee arthritis.
* Behavior modification
* Support devices
A wide range of treatment options exist for the treatment of knee arthritis. Effectiveness of different treatment varies from person to person. The goal is to reduce pain and increase function of the knee. Behavior modifications involving weight loss, exercise changes and minimizing aggravating activities can accomplish such goals. Losing weight can decrease excess stress on weight-bearing knee joints, which decreases pain while increasing mobility. Switching to activities such as swimming and cycling are less stressful on joints than running and jumping.

I feel diet plays a large part in Arthritis. I take a regiment of supplements every day.
My favorite blog on herbs is www.loveherbs.info . It lists most of the herbs for women issues.
I have heard that Boswellia is a good herb for joints and arthritic pain. http://www.naturesformulary.com/products/bosw... This website, Nature's Formulary, also has an audio interview with a doctor discussing the herb.
