Does it really help? I heard conflicting things about it's use.

I also use turmeric regularly. I started using a "neckUp" as well.

For excercises I posted these vidoes on another website, they helped me a great deal. Hope it helps.

I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my hands, I manage to struggle on without painkillers which I dislike taking, for how long though, I don't know, maybe I will give some of the suggestions on here a go.
Very informative.

I take a produce that in South Africa is called Arthrochoice and it helps. Also, Turmeric capsules are helping. I couldn't play at all for years and am now back to playing 30 minutes every day and enjoying it.
Hi Chris

Thank You for your advice. I will give the Turmeric capsules a go.
