What To Do About The Common Arthritic Pain of Osteoarthritis


The body has some wear and tear over the years. I know some of us to feel like that only happens to other people, but damn it, as the years go on everything my mother said, was true! The body changes. A more natural degenerative arthritis commonly referred to as Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis out there.

Osteoarthritis occurs from chronic wear and tear. As we age we lose cartilage, the cushioning surface on the end of our bones. As the cartilage wears away we get bones rubbing against one another which causes pain, swelling, and stiffness. Over time, joints can lose strength and the pain may become chronic. There are things we can do to reduce the pain and improve quality of life.

Here are our more successful techniques in our clinic:

  • Weight Loss – the hardest but most effective therapy is weight loss. This can be a big contributing factor to Osteoarthritis and many other health conditions. If this is something that you require we will come along side you with a specific plan that works for you. Remember, there are no cookie cutter solutions when it comes to this.
  • Change your diet – there are great anti-inflammatory options out there. We will customize a plan for you and rule out any food allergies that may be contributing to your inflammation and stress on your body.
  • We always recommend adding in some great anti-inflammatory herbs and supplements to help you along the way. Common deficiencies can contribute to inflammation in the body and cause more joint pain.
  • IV Therapy to reduce pain is often a recommendation as higher doses of Vitamin C also lend to lowering inflammation in the body.
  • Hydrotherapy – alternating hot and cold therapies can be amazing for pain relief as well as reducing inflammation in the body.
