What is Gout?
Gout is an extremely painful condition caused by a buildup of uric acid in the bloodstream that crystallizes in the joints. The big toe is the joint most commonly affected by gout, but the disease can also flare up and cause inflammation and pain in the knee, ankle, wrist, hand and elbow joints.
A diet rich in purines results in high levels of uric acid. To reduce uric acid in your bloodstream, avoid high purine foods. Limiting moderate-level purine foods can help as well. Download your FREE report for a list of foods you should avoid eating when following a low uric acid diet as well as the best medications for reducing uric acid.
If you show symptoms or have risk factors for osteoporosis, your doctor is likely to recommend a DXA test to measure your bone mineral density. Hearing “osteoporosis -2.5” or “osteoporosis -3” from your doctor means you have osteoporosis. A better T-score, like -1, may indicate low bone mass and should be treated. Your doctor will want you to develop—or keep—healthy habits such as eating foods rich in calcium and vitamin D and doing weight-bearing exercise such as walking, jogging, or dancing. In some cases, your doctor may recommend medication to prevent osteoporosis. Learn more in your FREE guide.
Osteoarthritis Pain Relief
The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis, or OA. Joint pain in your knee, hip, foot, shoulder, elbow, or hand occurs as your cartilage loses its elasticity and strength. As a result, your cartilage’s cushioning properties diminish and you encounter arthritis symptoms such as pain, swelling, stiffness, loss of motion, and potential deformities, including bone spurs and bone loss.
In your FREE guide, you’ll see why exercise and activity is the best remedy for sore joints and arthritis pain relief. And how simple stretching and non-weight bearing activities can reduce your pain while also lowering the risk for further joint deterioration. And because excess body weight contributes to arthritis symptoms, an exercise routine helping you improve your fitness has double value.
Arthritis medications and drugs are another important source of pain relief for OA sufferers. Fast-acting pain relievers like acetaminophen can keep you moving but be careful to follow the dosage directions. To reduce inflammation, you should consider a COX-2 inhibitor or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Pros and cons to these drugs and other treatments are all discussed in your FREE guide.
Rheumatoid Arthritis Pain Relief
Reducing joint inflammation is the immediate treatment for rheumatoid arthritis pain. Caught early on, RA can often be managed with medications, avoiding the need for surgery. The same pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs that help OA patients can help relieve rheumatoid arthritis symptoms. More potent but slower-acting drugs are available for rheumatoid arthritis patients.

For arthritis pain relief, are you considering joint replacement surgery?
Recent advances in knee and hip replacement surgery are astounding. Total and partial joint replacements are modern miracles restoring mobility and motion to patients—and returning them to an active and normal lifestyle.
But as with any major surgery, you have questions. Which is the best technique? Is resurfacing right for you? What materials should you consider? How long is the rehab period? Are there side effects to the pain medications? Is a second joint replacement surgery in your future?
It’s not just knee and hip joints. Shoulder joints, wrists, and even ankles can be improved with replacement surgery as well. The FREE guide Bone and Joint Conditions: Gout symptoms, osteoarthritis treatments, rheumatoid arthritis pain relief, and more from University Health News can help answer these questions and more.

P.S. Can drinking water help reduce arthritis pain symptoms? Absolutely! Your cartilage, which is largely liquid, softens the impact of walking by squeezing out some of its water into the synovial space. So drinking plenty of water is key to keeping your spongy cartilage hydrated and soft, step after step, even if you are carrying a few extra pounds.
