Unfortunately, as we get older, joint pain can become an everyday nuisance
that keeps us from living life to the fullest. According to the Center
for Disease Control, 30% of adults report joint pain or stiffness at least
once a month. Fortunately, there are several approaches to treating and
reducing joint pain, both surgical and non-surgical.
