    Every pound of weight lost is 4 lbs less streess on your knees. Other trtreatments for OA include OTC tylenol for pain, NSAIDS (OTC and prescription) and joint injection with steroids or medications such as Hyalgan. I recently wrote a new book called Natural Arthritis Treatment that reviews some natural treatments for OA.
