Instead of taking medicines you should opt for regular exercises and yoga.

OPTM Health Care is in Kolkata. It is a health care center where the treatment of pain is done. Treatment for disease like Osteoartritis, Frozen Shoulder, Depression, Migrane etc are done. The methods used are totally different , they use phytomedicines and therapies for curing pain and these have no side effects. In my family my Grandmother and my Brother both are taking treatment from OPTM and the results are good.

After going through this discussion I also visited OPTM Health Care in Delhi one month ago. The method they are using for pain relief is slightly different from other doctors. OPTM helps in recovery from pain of every body part in a manner by applying herbal creams and oils. My treatment is still going on and I am feeling relief and relaxed.

I am working in a stem cell clinic and we treat many patients from around the world with osteoarthritis. Some opted for this treatment because they do not want to have a surgery. After treatment, pain was reduced and range of motion was improved. Before, I thought that testimonials are just made up but now, after seeing real results, I believed.

Don't be too frightened by the diagnosis.
I was diagnosed with hip OA in 2006 - I was told it was a classic case. By 2012 a physiotherapist told me that based on her physical exam she thought I had at most a year left before needing a total hip replacement. She felt bone on bone restriction indicating bone spurs and loss of cartilage was severe.
Yet I am now - in 2015 - 100% symptom free. My case turned out to be due to complex muscle imbalances. It wasn't easy to unravel it all - many physios failed over the years. But finally I figured out the exact mechanism and once those imbalances were sorted my hip was completely fine.
We're told that OA isn't curable. But when you delve deeper you realise that's not true. It's just that the health service isn't offering a cure. In actual fact there is no test to positively diagnose OA. It's simply a catch all term to describe joint pain of unknown cause. Under the OA umbrella there will be lost of different joint pain pathologies. Honestly - I can share so much more info on this to convince you.
Here in the UK they don't even use xray or MRI to help with OA diagnosis on the grounds that research has clearly shown that there is no correlation between xray findings and symptoms. So even if your joints show severe degenerative changes it doesn't mean they are the cause of your symptoms. You could, like me, eliminate the real cause of symptoms and find that you worn joints are managing perfectly fine. I run, weight train, matial arts - 100% pain free.
I'm trying to spread the word that for some people at least there is hope. And not through some expensive treatment. Through self help - treating muscle imbalances. It's not easy to unravel them - chances are if yours was a straight forwards case it wouldn't have been diagnosed as OA. But if you're determined it can be done.

Do not be afraid if you are diagnosed with OA. I think, the best thing to do is by preventing it from getting worst. You can visit this link for treatment information:

A pilot study was carried out in 2012. Patients on a waiting list for knee replacement surgery were treated with injections of anesthetic to trigger points in the muscles in the thighs and calves. 92% got significant relief from pain implying that most knee pain in OA cases is myofascial (soft tissue) in origin. They recommended a further study to see if treatment of trigger points could delay the need for surgery or eliminate it altogether.

So a small study but with significant findings!

I don't think the follow up study has been done yet. However, you can very easily do an experiment of one and treat the trigger points yourself. It's very easy to do through self-massage and there's plenty of information freely available on line.

You'll find a link here to the research paper and to a couple of resources that give you details on how to treat trigger points.


I hope this gives you some pain relief!
