<p>(<a href=NewsUSA) – When Americans feel a pain coming on -; whether from a headache, backache or sore muscle -; they reach for their medicine cabinets. And while popping a pain pill on occasion probably won’t cause lasting harm, overuse of even over-the-counter drugs can prove harmful.

Most people think nothing of taking painkillers like Advil, Aleve, Ibuprofen, Motrin and aspirin. But these common pills belong to a class of drugs called Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs), which are known to cause gastric ulcers, cardiovascular problems, gastrointestinal bleeding, and liver and kidney damage.

Acetaminophen, or Tylenol, can damage the liver, especially in those who drink alcohol on a regular basis. In fact, according to the Food and Drug Administration, Osteoarthritis” liver toxicity from acetaminophen poisoning is the most common cause of acute liver failure in the United States.

Taking more than the recommended dosage increases the risk of side effects, as does taking the drugs over a long period of time, Those managing chronic pain with NSAIDs or acetaminophen prove especially susceptible to damage.

Osteoarthritis patients often use over-the-counter or prescription painkillers to relieve pain and inflammation. But in doing so, they risk developing new health problems, some of which may prove life-threatening.

But there are other ways to treat pain. For example, the FDA has recently approved an at-home low-level laser device, the QLaser, for treating osteoarthritis in the hands. Low-level lasers have also been approved for treating carpal tunnel syndrome and myofascial shoulder pain.

Low-level laser therapy uses laser light to ease pain by stimulating endorphins, reduce inflammation and encourage cell regeneration. Long used by professional athletes and the British military, low-level laser therapy is non-invasive and produces no known side effects.

The low-level lasers approved by the FDA are completely safe. “Laser light is as gentle as the kiss of a butterfly,” Dr. Larry Lytle, in his book “Universal Healer, Osteoarthritis,” “but from a healing perspective, it is quite possibly more effective than drugs or surgery.”
