I ted on this journey because of arthritis pain. I could barely walk. I had to hold on to the bannister and take the stairs one at a time, like a baby. I knew that I needed surgery so I wanted to build up the muscles surrounding my knee as much as possible before surgery. I started using a stationary bike. For the first week, I had to push to get in 20 minutes. By the end of that week I could go without aspirin (about the only pharmaceutical I ever take). After 2 months the pain was gone. I now am down 85# and have NO knee pain.
One herbal that others have not mentioned for pain relief is ginger. An herbal tea that I make for friends and family with arthritis is 2 parts peppermint:1 part each horsetail fern, Stinging Nettle, Licorice Root and Ginger. Steep for 20 minutes; take 3 times daily.
