Building a relationship with your healthcare provider
Finding the relief you need begins with talking. Choose a healthcare provider whom you trust, and then take an active role in your treatment. Describe the details of your osteoarthritis knee pain and condition. Talk about how it’s impacting your life. By being open and specific, you can help your healthcare provider better understand what you need.
Even though we may have similar symptoms, we’re all different. And there are different approaches to treating osteoarthritis knee pain. Don’t try to fix it on your own. You really have to see a doctor before the pain becomes unbearable.
– Stanley, diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the knee in 2010
