doctorsUntil now the only approved treatment for Severs Disease was anti-inflammatory drugs in conjunction with “RICE”. This stands for Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. Unfortunately, many times these alone may prove to be inadequate. The condition, osteochondrosis at the tendon’s attachment point on the Calcaneal tuberosity, may include microscopic bone chipping, inflammation and tears, and in the most extreme cases, separation of both cartilage and bone from the bone. However, based upon years of experience there is a novel new product called Oscon. It appears to work on a variety of levels to help treat the painful condition. The method of action appears to be in at least three areas. First is the proven biological effect of certain vitamin E isomers in interacting with free radicals such as ROS and lipid peroxyl radicals. The most biologically active of these is RRR-alpha-tocopherol. Next is an increase in glutathione peroxidase due to the increased presence of several organic selenium compounds in Oscon which the body readily absorbs. Finally, these two micronutrients appear to act synergistically to first reduce first free-radical activity at the injury site, and then counteract the resultant peroxide breakdown products. Recent research on this subject as taught at many University level Pharmacy Schools: The action of antioxidants and antioxidant vitamins. Improvement is almost always seen in less than a week!
