Dark Chocolate Alert

From eNewsletter 1/18/2023

DID YOU KNOW that recently, researchers found that the class of anti-inflammatory drugs called NSAIDs makes knee arthritis worse? On the heels of this news comes another two studies presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America suggesting that steroid injections also makes knee arthritis worse. Both MRI scans and X-ray imaging showed that steroid injections significantly exacerbated the progression of knee osteoarthritis. Hyaluronic acid injections, an often-used alternative to steroid injections for knee osteoarthritis, did not exhibit adverse effects.
