Patient discussion about packing

Q. can i treat Arthritis with hot packs? will it make any different?

A. Actually ostheoarthritis is known to be aleviated with heat and so hot packs may help. Cold weather is known to aggravate arthritis. You should try a combination of physical therapy or minimal exercise with hot packs.

Q. Do you know the Aroma Therapy packs they sale over the mall? they say it's especially good for Arthritis, is it true ?

A. i'm a bit skeptic about "wonder treatments" you buy at the malls. i think that 99% of those things are there because desperate people will buy anything for a bit of peace of mind.
