1. Stretching and Mobility
In previous editions of this Chronicle, we talked about some fundamental "static" stretching exercises that will assist with increasing mobility. Given the ease with which this can be used, it is something that every sufferer of arthritis should be doing every day.
2. Disk Disease and Your Pet
As most of you know, disk disease affects a great many of us. In fact, it is common to find evidence of this in most aging adults. However, it can also be a very real issue for your pets as well.

The right way to start the year
By J. R. Rogers
New Years is an unusual holiday. I say that because it is not like others we celebrate. For example, Valentine’s Day has a specific meaning just as Christmas does. And, consider the others. They all have some ‘specific’ connotation. With this holiday, we are simply moving forward to another year. Of course, that is significant in ways that go beyond the change of the year’s number.
Everyone makes New Years resolutions. For many of us, it is to lose some weight or to stop smoking. Something that is very specific to our way of thinking. The problem is usually two-fold. First, we make “too many resolutions” or we try to tackle something that is very difficult for us. And unfortunately, most of us do not have the resolve to follow through with our ambition plans.
For those who suffer from Osteoarthritis, weight loss is always an issue. The reason is that excessive weight makes pain from arthritis a larger issue. And, the inevitable exercise we all promise to carry on is a big step in the right direction. Of course, as with any “resolution” we make it means we have to look forward to every day throughout the upcoming year and just do it.
Pain can be defeated
If you have been a regular reader of my columns over the years and have followed my advice, you are likely doing very well. That is, taking a high-quality liquid Glucosamine product, exercising and eating sensibly. It makes a world of difference. I know this is true because I hear from those who use our product regularly.
Be good to yourself
In general, (my) feeling is that any New Year’s resolution should be to “be good to yourself.” Beating your arthritis pain is so much easier when you have a good attitude about it. And, you can do it.
To each of you, let me extend a Happy New Year to each of you.
See you next time.
