Medications: glucosamine and chondroitin
One of the best answers to this question is found on the site of Dr David Nelson, a San Francisco Hand Surgeon. I agree with what he says on his page.
Many of my patients describe relief of pain from using Glucosamine/Chondroitin and I think it is reasonable to use it as a pain reliver or anti-inflammatory medication. However, there is no scientific evidence to support the idea that it promote regrowth of joint surface in humans. I would not advise you to waste money buying the preparation for that purpose.
Do these help as the directions say to take 3 a day i am somewhat leary please advise as soon as possible thank you
The latest thing is Deer Antler preperation. Apparently the active ingredient has been identified as a gene which is switched on in antler cartilage. This gene makes the cartilage grow and forms the antler.
It is 12 April today. I tried the Deer Antler preparation from the Health Food shop. It made no difference at all, so save your money!
