We have all likely heard at some point in our lives about the benefits of milk in our diets. According to the American College of Rheumatology (rheumatology.org), research shows that it is even better than previously thought for women. Studies show that those women who frequently consume fat-free or low-fat milk may find that the progression of osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee delayed. By delaying these symptoms, the millions of women who are dealing with the symptoms of OA in America have the opportunity to live a better life with less pain for longer than those who didn’t drink milk.
Osteoarthritis or OA impacts over 27 million Americans however, in many cases, women are the ones impacted. For a majority of women who are coping with OA, the most commonly and severely impacted joint is the knee however, OA can impact many joints including hands and hips as well. Medical evidence suggests that extra weight, injuries and repetitive movements are often risk factors associated with the progression of OA, however much about how OA develops and progresses as well as how to better deal with its symptoms remain unclear.
