Sometimes called "wear and tear" arthritis or degenerative joint disease, it is the most common Arthritis. That's right, with so many middle aged people going through the same, you are not alone. In fact, OA affects over 32.5 million US adults, according to the CDC. Arthritis means inflammation or swelling of one or more joints. In fact, it's symptoms vary over 100 conditions that all affect the joints, tissues around the joint, and other connective tissues.

Thusly, those with the disease seek means to slow down it's symptoms.
Need Knee Pain Relief For Osteoarthritis?
With knee OA, the cartilage in your joint begins to break down and the underlying bone begins to change. These changes can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling. In some cases it also causes reduced function and disability; some people are no longer able to do daily tasks or work.
The signs and symptoms of OA :
- Pain or aching. If uncertain about possible joint damage please talk to your doctor.
- Joint stiffness; from joint injury or overuse, such as knee bending and constant stress on joints.
- Swelling; Effusion which results from excess fluid in the joint.
- Decreased range of motion (or flexibility); reduction in the normal range of motion in effected joints.
The Root Of Our Organic Passion.
We're not just focused on knee pain relief or skin care. Truly, our care is organic and genuine. In fact, eight years ago Tyka Calloway (Purely Wrapped CEO) found her mother on the ground foaming at the mouth. This allergic reaction to medication sparked an immediate visit to the nearest ER. After what seemed like endless testing, Virginia Martin was diagnosed with a rare and serious disorder of the skin and mucous membranes. Stevens-Johnson Syndrome is often a reaction to medication or an infection, a painful rash that spreads, and blisters that follow. Thus, doctors found 80% of her skin was covered in lesions. Tyka made it her mission to ease her mother's pain. In fact, in our passionate opinion, these pain salve formulas were first made for the Purely Wrapped family, but maybe it was also made for you and your struggle.
Tyka's pain salve formulas reduced the pain and appearance of the skin sores you see below.
