Joint Pain!!!

Most people think of joint pain as being something that only the elderly suffer from. That's simply not true. Joint pain is a problem that can exist for people of all ages. A young person might suffer from pain in their joints that all of our grandmas called growing pains. This is an occurrence that seems to accompany growth spurts. One example of  pretty severe joint pain in a growing adolescent is Osgood-Schlatter disease. It is an inflammation of the area just below the knee where the tendon from the kneecap (patellar tendon) attaches to the shinbone (tibia).

Later in life we experience joint pain from injuries and other activities. All of the hiking, snow boarding/ skiing, running and team sports that we participated in cause extreme wear and tear on our joints. It is common for an active twenty or thirty something person to complain about their aching joints after a hard workout, compitition or fast moving activity.

Then we get to the most common of joint complaints. Arthritis: ar·thri·tis -/ - noun - painful inflammation and stiffness of the joints. Generally speaking arthritis is an auto-immune disease that causes inflammation and pain. One would think that only old people suffer from the pain associated with arthritis The swelling and soreness of the joints that comes from arthritis becomes a lifelong battle that can begin quite early in life. Generally speaking arthritis is an auto-immune disease that causes inflammation and pain.

There are several different types of arthritis. According to the Arthritis Foundation There are eight different auto-immune diseases that deliver arthritic pain. Below we have listed five of them.

  • Osteoarthritis
    • In osteoarthritis (OA), the protective cartilage inside the joint breaks down. This makes movement of affected joints more difficult and painful. In time, bones of the joint may rub directly against one another, causing severe pain.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
    • In rheumatoid arthritis (RA), the joints and other organs are attacked by the body’s own immune system. The immune system normally protects a person from viruses, bacteria and other invaders. In people with autoimmune diseases like RA, it becomes overactive and attacks healthy tissue.
  • Psoriatic Arthritis
    • Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is an autoimmune inflammatory disease in which the immune system attacks the body, causing inflammation and pain. PsA affects the joints, causing arthritis; the connective tissue where tendons or ligaments attach to bones, causing enthesitis; and the skin, causing psoriasis.
  • Back Pain
    • Back pain can be a symptom of several forms of arthritis and related conditions, including ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis and fibromyalgia. Most back pain, however, is the result of some type of injury, such lifting or bending improperly, a sports injury or an automobile accident. t.
  • Other Musculoskeletal Pain
    • Soft-tissue rheumatic conditions can also cause pain. In these conditions, muscles, connective tissues such as tendons and ligaments, and bursae become inflamed and painful. Read more about musculoskeletal pain and its treatments in

There are lifestyles that provide a healthy way to stave off the pains and the debilitating loss of ROM (Range of Motion). Exercise is one of the most important regimens that a person needs to establish before the pain gets too bad. Weight-bearing exercises are some of the most important. Other exercises include stretching and aerobic. The best advice that can be given to a person who has joint aches and pains is to warm up with some stretching exercises, spend twenty minutes using weights to strengthen the muscles that support the sore joints then a brisk walk or jog to finish off the exercise session.

Supplements Available for Healthy Joints:

  • Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9 Fatty Acids.
    • Omega-3 fatty acid intake is associated with the improvement of rheumatoid arthritis, as omega-3 metabolites inhibit the production of inflammatory cytokines responsible for arthritic pain (Zainal et al. 2009). Supplementation with EPA and DHA is effective against arthritic pain as well as other symptoms, including joint stiffness (Goldberg and Katz 2007).
  • Hyaluronic Acid
    • The result of this study in which HA was administered orally over a 12-month period revealed a possibility that HA may alleviate knee OA symptoms in relatively young subjects in the early phase of the study period. In our study, the subjects' symptoms improved gradually during the study period in both the HA and placebo groups, as observed in previous studies.

  • Glutamic Acid
    • This is the precursor to glucosamine. Glucosamine is a very well know supplement that has been associated with joint health and maintenance.
    • Glutamic Acid is currently being studied as a beneficial supplement for people with Osteoarthritis in the knee. The results are still pending.
  • Copper Sulfate
    • Copper plays an important role in maintaining collagen and elastin, major structural components of our bodies.
      • Without sufficient copper, the body cannot replace damaged connective tissue or the collagen that makes up the scaffolding for bone.
      • This can lead to a range of problems, including joint dysfunction, as bodily tissues begin to break down. (Turnlund JR. Copper. In: Shils ME, Shike M, Ross AC, Caballero B, Cousins RJ, eds. Modern Nutrition in Health and Disease. 10th ed. Philadelphia: Lippincott Williams & Wilkins; 2006:286-299.)
      • Scientists have hypothesized that copper may have antioxidant properties. Superoxide dismutase (SOD) cells contain and require copper to function. These SOD cells turn free radicals into hydrogen peroxide which is subsequently reduced to water and eliminated.

What a Difference
I wasn't to sure about this in the beginning, but what a difference it made after about 2 weeks. I followed the instructions on the bottle and thought that this wasn't going to do anything for me. Then after I had been taking the capsules for about 12 days I really noticed. My joints stopped aching and my ankle that pops in the mornings even stopped popping every time I took a step.
If you have joint issues I would definitely recommend this as a great remedy.
