There is absolutely no correlation between arthritic aging changes and pain. Arthritis limits mobility, but does not "cause" pain (although the structural anomaly may 'trigger' it). Arthritis is one issue, pain is quite another

This is absolute baloney. Tissue becomes inflamed around the arthritic joint and to the afflicted one becomes indistinguishable from the other. It is true some people have osteoarthritis limiting motion or strength without accompanying pain (my mother did after an accident, at an old age), but one should not generalize.

Interesting review of several osteoarthritis studies conducted on climbers.

Seems to conclude that there is no conclusion.

Do-it-yourself self-estem pills. Feel better about pain, and for cheap.

after several attempts at alleviating the effects of arthritic knees, I think I will try acupuncture.
