[Alert] URGENT Warning for Arthritis Patients
Mainstream medicine always offers you what looks like the easy way out.
Drugs, treatments, surgery, you name it… they promise is a quick fix for whatever ails you.
And it might even appear to work. At least at first.
But trust me, there’s always a catch.
And if you’re suffering from osteoarthritis and considering a certain common mainstream treatment… this is one you won’t want to miss.
Here’s how to stay safe.
I would never downplay the pain and suffering you face daily if you’ve got osteoarthritis.
I know that this painful joint condition can do more than leave you in constant pain… it can make you stiff, reduce your range of motion, and destroy your quality of life.
So if you’re considering a steroid shot, I don’t blame you.
But please reconsider.
Corticosteroid injections are the mainstream’s go-to when oral drugs aren’t getting the job done. These shots go directly into the joint and can ease your pain almost instantly.
You’ve probably been told the worst part about them is that their relief is only temporary… lasting about three to four months before needing another shot.
But a new study published in the journal Radiology has revealed something much worse about steroid shots.
It turns out that the shots can cause rapidly progressive osteoarthritis, causing your joint to deteriorate more quickly.
In other words, these shots can FASTTRACK your joint disease.
They’ve been linked to an increased risk of a stress fracture—and also to osteonecrosis, the death of bone tissue.
Those are some major complications for TEMPORARY pain relief.
I never recommend steroid injections. Instead, a safer, far more effective treatment is low-level light therapy (LLLT).
In addition to reducing pain and increasing function, LLLT can help you grow new cartilage.
If you’re considering steroid injections, I urge you to reconsider—and to talk to your doctor about LLLT instead.
