Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.
As you have not specified in the description, I took it granted that you are taking Instaflex JOINT SUPPORT capsules for your osteoarthritis
You can use them absolutely without any problem as all the ingredients ( Glucosamine
, MSM, Boswellia, Turmeric, Hyaluronic acid
, White willowbark extract) in that capsule are very much essential in maintaining the integrity of your joint.
Apart from using Instaflex capsules, follow the below mentioned guidelines also -
* PHYSICAL THERAPY
: The mainstay of treatment in the early case is physical therapy, which should be directed at maintaining joint mobility and improving muscle strength. Other measures, such as massage and the application of warmth, may reduce pain.
* LOAD REDUCTION : Protecting the joint from excessive load may slow down the rate of cartilage loss. It is also effective in relieving pain. Weight reduction for obese patients, wearing shock-absorbing shoes, avoiding activities like climbing stairs and using a walking stick are worthwhile.
MEDICATION : Simple over the counter medications like acetaminophen
is sufficient in most cases. If this fails to control pain, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug
may be better.
Hope this information is helpful. Good day
