Many people start taking chondroprotectors for joint pain. However, Alexander Myasnikov does not give them high marks. They can be used, but the funds do not bring the expected result, but they do not harm either. Experts note that these funds cannot act on the knee cartilage, since it does not receive blood supply and innervation. It doesn't even hurt on its own. Considering all these facts, there is no understanding of how drugs will enter the cartilage joint. To nourish it naturally, you need to constantly move, subjecting the knee to a load. Intra-articular fluid will saturate the diseased cartilage, which is important for its functioning. The doctor added that sometimes people talk about the benefits of taking drugs of this group, as they feel relief, but in fact, the symptoms disappear due to the analgesic properties. This phenomenon is temporary. After a certain period, the effect will disappear. The TV presenter noted that the same effect can be achieved from some food products.
The specialist does not advise to resort to surgery. Cartilage surgery is appropriate only in cases of injury, and when it comes to athletes. Arthroscopy will not provide relief and is not used for degenerative joint changes. You can also spend money with more health benefits, such as buying sneakers. To strengthen your joints, you need to exercise more. Yoga is good for this. Also, for the prevention of the disease, you need to get rid of excess weight, removing the additional load from the cartilage.
