W. Henrietta, NY, United States, 2005/04/27 - With plenty of generic health-and-wellness information around -it's hard to know what’s best for you. Know Your Bones will show you how to manage your arthritis pain. It's an easy to read, personalized approach to bone and joint health!.
Osteoarthritis—it inflicts pain on millions all over the world. Yet, even with today’s advances in science and medicine, people still don’t know “what’s normal and what’s not” when it comes to this disease. Worse than that, most people haven't got the first clue about what the best treatment is for their pain.
Dr. Stephanie Siegrist, a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and one of only 3% of board-certified orthopedic surgeons who are female, offers arthritis pain-suffers relief in the pages of her new book, Know Your Bones: Making Sense of Arthritis Medicine, published by WME Books.com, a division of Windsor Media Enterprises, LLC.
According to Dr. Siegrist, “I want patients to learn the pros and cons of any arthritis remedy recommended for them. Before taking any medication, you owe it to your health to understand:
• What’s the name of the drug, and why am I taking it?
• How will I know if it’s working? When should I expect to feel better?
• How often do I take it: daily, three times a day, as needed?
• What are the possible side effects, and symptoms I should be aware of?
• What other drugs do I take, and how will this one interact with them?
• Why is this drug right for me?”
Know Your Bones: Making Sense of Arthritis Medicine is being lauded as, “A great service to patients,” by Mary I. O’Connor, MD, Chair, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Mayo Clinic, as well as, “Dr. Siegrist’s book adds another valuable piece to our library of knowledge regarding arthritis. Know Your Bones is a book that everyone can understand,” says Carol Anne DeMoulin, President & CEO, Arthritis Foundation, Upstate New York Chapter.
“Read it from start to finish, or just refer to the drugs you currently use,” Dr. Siegrist recommends. “Either way, you’ll regain control of your symptoms, your treatments and your costs.”
