Knee pain and osteoarthritis go hand in hand, and each goes hand in hand with aging. Although the Web is rife with advice about the best way to prevent, manage, and resolve knee pain, few rigorous studies have ever compared the most common methods head to head.

The study focuses on two supplements in particular – glucosamine and chondroitin – which are widely recommended for knee pain despite scant clinical evidence behind them. Supplements generally tend to represent a Wild West in medicine, and this is one case where some of these unregulated pills may be doing more harm than good.
Bottom line: if you want the best knee pain treatment in San Diego, talk to the experts. AOSM is widely hailed throughout Southern California for its cutting edge approach to orthopedic treatment of knee pain.
