Very Helpful Little Book!

by Cariola on Mar 29, 2008

Although I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis a few years ago, I never paid much attention to it. All it meant to me was that my feet and ankles felt stiff in the morning and that sometimes the joints in my hands ached. Then I got hit with an attack of sciatica that changed my way of thinking. I was in terrible pain, and when I went to the orthopedist, I told him, "I know that this can't be cured. All I want is to be able to manage it and to do what I can to slow the progression." I got some good advice and treatment from my doc, and this little handbook came at just the right time. The explanations of joint anatomy and the effects of OA are uncomplicated but thorough, and I was happy to add the easy-to-follow exercises to those recommended by my physical therapist. The benefits of the dietary guidelines, too, are clearly explained and easily followed. While I hope to avoid surgery, the handbook also provides useful information in case I need it down the road. All in all, The Arthritis Handbook is just what I needed to dispel the feeling of hopelessness I had experienced and to help me gain a sense of control over this disease. There are more detailed, more technical books available on this subject, but my advice is to save them for later and put this one to work for you now. I plan to take it with me to my next doctor's appointment.
