Arthritis Joint Pain Supplements


The Choices Between Joint Treatment Options

For those that are experiencing extreme joint pain, it is common to seek relief from outside sources, particularly medicine and supplements. This leads to the question:

Which one should you use?

Each of the two choices gives you interesting points to consider, but the better choice is to use arthritis joint pain supplements over pharmaceutical medicine.

Chemical Medicines

Chemical medicines and joint pain specific pain killers are effective at relieving some of the pain. For some people, this may be enough to convince you that they are the better option. But there are two problems with pharmaceutical medicine that instantly move them from 'adequate' to 'not ideal.':

  • Many of these joint pain killers have side effects.
  • Your joints will continue to receive damage.

With regards to the former, all chemical medicines have risks for side effects. They are made from chemicals, and there is always the chance that you can experience serious health problems should your body suddenly decide to reject the chemical. But in addition, the main problem with these pharmaceutical medicines is that they do not solve the problem - they may even exacerbate it.

Arthritis Joint Pain Supplements

Unlike medicine, arthritis joint pain supplements do not have any side effects, so they are far safer to use. In addition, they contain natural materials that not only reduce joint pain, but also lubricate joints to give them greater freedom of motion, as well as increase their elasticity so that your joints do not receive greater damage.

Many of these arthritis joint pain supplements contain added 'food' for your joints which will make them stronger. In other words, the supplements will be allowing you to move easier, without creating extra damage to your joints and while helping your joints become stronger. With pharmaceutical medicine, you are bound to continue to receive joint damage (because elasticity is not increased) and if you ever stop taking the medicine, chances are it will hurt worse than it ever hurt before.

Some people are concerned about things like arthritis joint pain supplements because they have used one that was not as powerful as promised. This is a common and justified concern - the average natural joint supplement is not going to be as powerful a pain killer as the medicine. But as long as you use a product that is known to be as effective at reducing pain as medicine, like Synotrex, you are unlikely to experience that problem.
