Knee OA Relief

Daily - doing squats on a Total Gym (2 or 3 reps of 20) at an incline, taking Nopalea (for me 5 or 6 oz.), whirlpool baths and a proactive attitude through prayer have helped me tremendously.

I have also increased my water intake, and reduced my BMI through a focus on nutrition. I am currently planning to purchase either a recumbent bike or an elliptical. Ten minutes a day on a bike can help too.

Surgery was recommended several years ago for both knees (during which time I could hardly walk). I also had therapy several years ago, and currently receive viscosupplementation (injections) twice a year.

I stopped using a cane two months ago and have not taken a pain killer for 3 weeks now. I am 65 years old and commute more than 100 miles M-F each way to work.
