Honoring Presidents with Arthritis Pain

Presidents and Their Arthritis Pain Relief

On this President’s Day, we can’t help but wonder--how many United States presidents suffered from arthritis? Since one in three Americans suffers from some sort of arthritis pain, you’d think that quite a few US Presidents suffered from this debilitating disease.

So how many Presidents had arthritis?  Only 9.

  • John Adams
  • Thomas Jefferson
  • James Madison
  • John Tyler
  • Theodore Roosevelt
  • William H. Taft
  • Dwight Eisenhower
  • Ronald Regan
  • George HW Bush

These great American leaders were/are plagued by a disease that eventually makes living life so difficult, you stop doing things you once did. We stop and think about the type of arthritis pain relief available during the their presidencies.

The majority of them probably did the best they could and just dealt with the pain. Pretending it’s not there can work for some people. The majority of them took to masking or numbing their arthritis pain to find relief.  Early forms of arthritis pain relief included bloodletting and leaching.  Acupuncture and moxibustion were also popular.  Eventually, willow bark (an ingredient found in Synflex liquid glucosamine) was used. Acetyl salicylic acid, which is now aspirin, was used in the mid 1800s.  Cortisone became available in the 1940s. These options masked arthritis pain. They didn’t treat the source.

The only president who could possibly take advantage of arthritis pain relief provided by liquid glucosamine is George HW Bush. Synflex didn’t realize the liquid glucosamine to the public until 2000.

It’s rather unfortunate that these great men couldn’t find the arthritis pain relief so many of us have already found. But today, we honor the great things they have done despite arthritis pain.
