Dr. Daly’s education: Dr. Daly received his undergraduate degree at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana and continued to Mayo Medical School in Rochester, MN for his medical degree. Following his residency at the Orthopedic Surgery Mayo Graduate School of Medicine, he received advanced specialization training in the Rowe Shoulder Fellowship at Harvard University, Boston, MA.

Video Transcription

I don’t know if there’s any scientific evidence that they can ease arthritis. I mean the antioxidants, the whole grain cereals, are just better for you in terms of your general health. If your general health is better, your arthritis is better. There really is no one food group that’s going to treat your arthritis or cure it. There have been reports that a Mediterranean diet can be beneficial towards your arthritis. That certain supplements that are dietary in nature, cherry juice, cranberry juice, various food supplements, have given some patients anecdotal relief from arthritis, but there really isn’t any scientific evidence that solidly supports those.
