Relief and Treatment of Hand and Knee Osteoathritis

In a Mind Your Body (Straits Times) article on June 26  2014, Dr Kevin Lee addresses a reader's concern on relief and treatment of osteoathritis in the hand and knees.

The reader has been an active sportsman since 20, but developed early osteoarthritis in both knees at 40. Physiotherapy did not help and he stopped exercising with his hurting knees. He recently developed Heberden's nodes on his fingers. He asked Dr Lee on what can be done to lessen the pain from knee osteoarthritis and fingers.

Dr Lee suspects that the reader has osteoarthritis in both his hands and knees. Heberden's nodes are a common sign of osteoarthritis in the hand. For the treatment of osteoarthritis, the usual treatments include weight loss, activity modification, joint supplements like collagen or herbal preparations, injections of hyaluronic acid and physiotherapy.

This is a premium natural herbal supplement that combines the powerful anti-inflammatory and cartilage-protective properties of 4 natural herbs.


This product has been 2 years in the making and it is ideal for the following patients:

1. Those suffering from arthritis (osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis) or cartilage injuries.

2. Endurance sports athletes looking for a natural solution to post-exercise joint and muscle inflammation.

Ride for Rations 2014

Dr Kevin Lee will be participating in the 2014 Ride For Rations. 150 cyclists will be cycling 250 km from Malacca to Singapore (23-24 August 2014) to raise funds that will provide monthly rations to 300 needy households registered with Sunlove Neighbourhood Link, an outreach of registered charity Sunlove Abode for Intellectually Infirmed. 100% of the funds raised will go to the above cause & Sunlove will be the custodian of funds.

They require financial help to cover rental, conservancy, electricity and basic food expenses.
