Knee Arthritis and Massage Therapy

The New York Times reports about a study that shows massage therapy is a viable treatment option for patients with osteoarthritis of the knee.

The findings suggest that doctors may want to advise arthritis patients to add massage to the treatments they are already using, like anti-inflammatory drugs. Massage may even be able to take the place of drugs for people who have mild arthritis or whose health does not allow them to take the medications.
