Recommendations for care
For the treatment of patients with knee pain, there is a choice of both surgical and non-surgical osteoarthritis treatment. By non-surgical treatment, it is advised to avoid too much knee activity, weight control, exercise regularly (non-impact on the knee) such as walking, cycling, swimming, etc.
Another way is to consider taking 100% natural supplements including extract of mangosteen, black sesame, soybean, and guinea-fowl extracts to help strengthen collagen and cartilage. These have been scientifically proven to reduce the production of the inflammatory mediators TNF-α, IL-6 and IL-17 which cause inflammation.
