Treating Joint Pain Causes Rather Than Symptoms

MyAchingKnees.com received a comment from Anonymous who said..."I keep seeing commercials for ACTIV On Roll pain reliever (like a deodorant stick). Have you used it? What do you think of it? I am 43 years old female, in good shape, not overweight. I really like too run, actually I am addicted to running, but my knee pain is been hurting more and more."

We have written posts concerning topical and tablet pain relievers, but the focus on our treating joint pain, particularly chronic joint pain, is a view on treating the causes and not the symptoms.

Not all the time, but often, joint pain is a degenerative condition that can be largely treated through advanced doses of high quality (pharmaceutical grade) nutritional supplements to combat the free radicals created by oxidative stress which causes the degeneration in the first place.

The required advanced doses of nutritional supplements (minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidants) give your body's immune system the nutrients it's need to function correctly and provide the protection at the cellular level that is sorely needed.

And we're saying "advanced doses" because the required level of nutrients you need compared to the archaic, 70 year old Required Daily Allowance (RDA) are drastically different.

We say "pharmaceutical grade supplements" because over the counter supplements that you buy in Vitamin Shops, GNC, Wal-Mart, etc., just don't have the guaranteed quality measured by potency, purity, efficacy or dissolution to provide you with what you need.

In today's world, one cannot eat enough quality foods to provide all the nutrients that are necessary for optimal health and protection against degenerative disease.

So while I think that topical pain relievers for joint pain, such as ACTIV ON may have a small role in pain management and maintaining comfort levels, particularly as a before and after exercise tool, the base treatment of chronic joint pain has to be based on a nutritional supplementation plan. I know better than to rely on Rx Pain or even OTC pain pills because of the damage they do to your bodies. I also know advanced doses of pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplements and additional use of pharmaceutical grade optimizers such as Glucosamine and Omega 3 Fatty Acids can achieve remarkable results. They have for me.
