Can yucca relieve arthritis pain?

Can yucca relieve arthritis pain?

The bark and root of yucca — a group of shrub-like plants native to the southwestern United States and Mexico — are ingredients in many dietary supplements that claim to promote joint health: Parts of various yucca plants have been used for centuries in traditional Native American medicine. But the only direct evidence that yucca relieves joint pain comes from a single study published in the 1970s and never validated in later publications. Since then, scientists have isolated several yucca compounds that may turn out to have medicinal value. In the laboratory, some of these compounds display properties similar to those of anti-inflammatory drugs used to treat joint pain. What these yucca-derived chemicals do in the test tube, however, is likely to be quite different from what they do in the human body. Scientific studies have validated many alternative and complementary therapies for arthritis, but yucca is not one of them. ...Read more

Can Botox injections relieve arthritis pain?

In early studies, Botox injections appear to reduce arthritis pain in the shoulder, knee and hip: These results are promising, but they fall short of proving that Botox injections are an effective treatment for arthritis pain. Botox injections are the best known of a group of medications that use various forms of botulinum toxin to temporarily paralyze muscle activity. Other medications that contain botulinum toxin include Dysport, Myobloc and Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxin a). This toxin is produced by the microbe that causes botulism, a type of food poisoning. So far, participants in various studies have reported improvement in arthritis pain and function after Botox injections. Botulinum toxin works by blocking the transmission of certain chemical signals that relay information between nerves and the brain. These preliminary studies have been small, and many of them didn't include a control group to see if the botulinum toxin injections work better than placebo. So there's much left to learn about the possible role of Botox injections in arthritis treatment.
