Osteoarthritis is caused by the cartilage, which cushions our joints, wearing away. If the normal, smooth cartilage has worn out, pain and swelling generally result.
“Cartilage cannot be renewed or replaced. You cannot grow new cartilage,” said James Burke, MD. “So, low impact activities are good to help keep your range of motion, while preventing further breakdown of cartilage.”
Implants and replacement surgery can help relieve knee pain.
Exercise as a prescription for arthritis has been well researched as an important component to staying active and pain free.

Kale is all the rage! Think outside the salad bowl and roast a batch of kale as “chips” – perfect to serve in place of traditional potato chips. Because these kale “chips” are baked instead of fried, you’ll save calories and fat grams – plus dish up a dose of antioxidants key to your good health!
Carrot “chips” add a burst of bright color and nearly “sweet” flavor to snack time or as a side to your luncheon sandwich! Choose extra-large carrots for the simplest way to shave into strips.
Caprese salad is a summertime favorite. This time we’re serving it up as a sandwich, and roasting the tomatoes into a delicious salsa! Roasting veggies caramelizes their natural sugars for an extra layer of flavor. Don’t forget to make extras – the salsa makes a great topping for pizza made on the grill.
