I was suffering from osteoarthritis. my right knee joint used to pain like anything. I could hardly walk upto 1 km distance due to pain, which I walk regularly while going to office. I applied many massage oils and hot and cold sponges but it gave relief for time being only. After taking around 8 months homeopathic treatment from Dr. Greeva Mankad at her anjar clinic, I am 80 % better.
