Science Finds Promise in Natural Joint Pain Treatments


Treatments for joint pain relief in patients have been studied vigorously for decades. Cortisone injections have been regarded as the gold standard for an effective treatment for joint pain since the first clinical trials in the 1950ís. In a recent major study review, however, it was found that although the injections helped provide immediate pain relief, the long term affects of the injection could actually cause further damage to the injured site. Patients found that cortisone injection provided substantial and quick pain relief that could last up to several weeks. In a 6 to 12 month follow up, patients who received these injections were found to have a slower recovery compared to patients who did nothing to treat the pain or followed only a physical therapy regimen.

†† The research has suggested that the reason for poor long term improvement is associated with the source of the pain. It has been well-known that pain stems from overuse injuries of the joints, resulting in tissue inflammation. Many prescription drugs and treatments, including cortisone injections, are anti-inflammatory medications. In the research over the years, however, studies have found that pain is caused by the actual degeneration of the tissues of the joint, not inflammation. †Anti-inflammatory medications do not aid in reducing the deterioration of the joint or in regenerating the tissues of the joint. In fact, affecting the nerve receptors of the joint may mask the pain of the joint and cause further strain and permanent damage to the joint.

†† Research has continued to find safe and effectives ways to treat, not just mask, the causes of joint pain. Alternative ways to reduce joint pain have been sought out extensively. Joint pain supplements have become an increasingly popular remedy for joint pain. Natural joint pain supplements are well-tolerated, inexpensive, and quite effective for long-term joint health. Glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate have been found to lubricate and help remain healthy cartilage in your joints. Studies have shown that glucosamine sulfate more closely mimics natural glucosamine and is more effective than glucosamine hydrochloride. Most importantly, natural supplements work on the source of the pain, joint damage, rather than just masking the pain as injections do.

†† Joint pain supplements with glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate are a safe, cost effective method to help patients with joint pain to rebuild their aching, damaged joints. More information regarding these and other natural joint pain supplements can be found at
