Common Arthritis “Cure” Makes Pain WORSE

If you’re suffering from debilitating osteoarthritis — the kind brought on by years and years of wear-and-tear damage — I bet you’ve tried everything to ease your aching knees and tender hips. 

I’m talking about poisonous painkillers… addictive opioids… and expensive surgeries… 

And if you’re like many folks, NONE OF IT’S WORKED! 

At this point, you’re desperate to end the pain… willing to try ANYTHING your doc suggests… 

But here’s why that’s a BAD IDEA. 

New research suggests that one class of mainstream pain meds, drugs doled out to manage arthritis, may actually SPEED UP your condition and WORSEN your pain 

And the worst part? 

Traditional docs don’t care! 

In the new study, published last month in the journal Radiology, Boston University researchers reviewed the medical records of nearly 500 patients who’d received corticosteroid injection in 2018. 

Now, corticosteroids work by mimicking the effects of cortisol, a stress hormone naturally produced by your adrenal glands, to lower inflammation and pain caused by your bones scraping together. 

Most of the time, they’re administered to older patients with multiple health problems… folks who can’t (or shouldn’t) manage their pain with mainstream non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or joint replacement surgery 

But don’t be fooled.  

These meds AREN’T safer or more effective than other mainstream “solutions,” and there’s NO GUARANTEE they’ll relieve your pain. 

In fact, they’ll probably make it WORSE! 

In the Boston study, researchers found evidence linking corticosteroid injections to FOUR major adverse events:  

  • Subchondral insufficiency fractures (stress fractures below your cartilage), 
  • Osteonecrosis (reduced blood flow to your joints), 
  • Rapid joint destruction (which is exactly what it sounds like), and 
  • Accelerated progression of osteoarthritis. 

That last one was the most common reaction, and it means that folks’ arthritis actually got worse FASTER… the complete OPPOSITE of what you want from treatment! 

Plus, if your joints are degrading faster than ever, that could mean MORE pain, MORE stiffness, and MORE damage in your tender knees and hips… not to mention severely impaired mobility and independence down the line… 

And that’s just the start. 

Corticosteroids have also been linked to increased risk of blood clots and vitamin D deficiency, issues that can endanger your heart and impede your body’s ability to absorb calcium (which is vital for strong bones)… 

But despite these dangers, mainstream docs just keep scribbling down Rxs! 

Thankfully, these shoddy shots AREN’T you’re only option. 

Just a few weeks ago, I shared how Thai black ginger (also known as “kra chai dom”) can help protect your tender cartilage and tamp down damaging inflammation around your joints… and just a few days before, I revealed that guggul (a resin or sap extracted from bdellium trees) also relieves pain and stiffness. 

Look for one (or both) in supplement form from your local vitamin shop – and next time your doc wants to sooth your pain with a shot, tell him the truth. 

You’re better off without it.
