We associate arthritis with age, but juvenile arthritis also affects many children under the age of 16, with an incidence rate of 1 in every 1,000 children in America. The disease is an autoimmune disorder, caused by the immune system operating incorrectly and attacking the body's native tissue, in this case the joints. Managing this disease requires medication and physical activity or therapy to reduce pain and inflammation, and this can be supplemented through heat therapy. That's where the Margo Moo Kids Resuable Hot and Cold Compress comes in. For younger children who want to engage with the world around them, sitting still during heat therapy can lead to restlessness, and the aches and pains of arthritis can be frightening. Margo Moo combines heat therapy with the fun and security a stuffed animal can bring a child, allowing them to have a friend by their side while alleviating inflammation and pain.
4. Hyalgan Osteoarthritis Knee Pain Relief Injections
The prevalence of knee osteoarthritis has doubled since the mid-20th century, for reasons that may include longer lifespans, higher obesity rates, and higher rates of physical inactivity. Arthritis-attributable medical costs have reached $140 billion yearly, and your practice many cases of knee osteoarthritis. For cases where over-the-counter drugs and physical therapy cannot fully manage pain, Hyalgan injections can help. They contain hyaluronate, a naturally-occurring substance found in our connective tissue, and which acts as a lubricant and helps cushion the knee joint.
