Arthritis in the Back

Question

MY DAUGHTER IS 30 YEARS OLD AND HAS SOME ARTHRITIS IN HER BACK, I AM VERY CONCERNED THAT SHE IS GETTING THE CORRECT TREATMENT, SHE HAS TAKEN CELEBRIX BUT I WOULD LIKE INFORMATION REGARDING ARTHRITIS TREATMENT OR DIET OR WHATEVER HELP YOU COULD PROVIDE.

Answer

Look around this website, but is difficult to provide more information without understnading your daughter’s condition better. I hope she is seeing a rheumatologist, because it seems unusual for a 30 yo to have arthritis of the spine.
