Musculoskeletal system and osteoarthritis

Musculoskeletal system and osteoarthritis: getting your joints moving again

Senior couple on cycle rideOsteoarthritis, or degenerative joint disease, results from joint cartilage wear and tear, and is one of the most common chronic conditions. Osteoarthritis often affects the knee and hip joints, but the shoulder and finger joints and the spine may also be involved. Joint misalignment, injury or strains may cause early degeneration of joint cartilage and painful inflammation in the joint capsule. If you are suffering from musculoskeletal system wear and tear, you may benefit from supportive treatment with extract of Devil’s Claw found in PASCOE® Agil Tablets. Devil’s Claw is a well-studied herb for relieving joint pain.
