For the nearly 70 million United States residents who suffer with some type of Joint pain, the search for a cure for this ailment or at least some sort of constant relief is a primary concern. Recent discoveries of new-age remedies, medical research as well as a great article posted at Health and Wellness portal BeWellBuzz.com has brought forth cautious optimism that new forms of relief could be on the horizon for nearly one-third of the US population who deal with joint pain on a daily basis.

The medical condition known as Osteoarthritis is incurable, and for decades the treatments that doctors have prescribed have been labeled by joint pain sufferers as inadequate. There are currently well over 21 million Americans who live with Osteoarthritis and this disease is the leading cause of disability in those above the age of 65. However, based on recent medical discoveries about the root cause of Osteoarthritis, researchers are cautiously optimistic new therapy for joint pain in forthcoming.

“What we´ve learned in the last 5 or 10 years is the root cause of Osteoarthritis is not due to common wear and tear,” said Dr. Steven Abramson director of rheumatology at the Hospital for Joint Diseases at New York University. “There are abnormal chemicals and molecules being produced by these joints that are causing the joint to self-destruct. The way we think about and research osteoarthritis now is to not be nihilistic or totally negative. This is a disease you can intervene in.”

One of the more positive ways recently discovered for relieving joint pain is through a procedure known as Lower Level Laser (or Cold Laser Therapy). The procedure included introducing low-level lasers or light-emitting diodes to areas of the body, specifically muscles and joints in attempt to alter cellular function. The introduction of the Cold Laser Therapy has been known to regenerate cellular growth in the affected areas, causing joint pain symptoms to significantly reduce and actually have been argued to have the ability to regenerate to original standards.

However, before people decide to rush out to their nearest clinic for Cold Laser Therapy scientific studies are needed to confirm the positive attributes of the claims made by the LLL community. In the meantime, there have been many natural remedies such as the spice Turmeric, which have shown to improve joint pain relief. A study published in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine in 2009 compared the active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin, with ibuprofen for pain relief in 107 people with knee osteoarthritis. The curcumin eased pain and improved function about as well as the ibuprofen.

As the debate and future medical research continues, there are several common, natural methods of reducing inflammation related to joint pain.
