Is your arthritis giving you unbearable swelling? Are your joints becoming stiff to the point where you can no longer do daily tasks? Would you like to know what holistic arthritis treatment can do for you?
Total Health Clinic helps patients on the Central Coast diagnosed with arthritis manage their symptoms through natural and holistic remedies and treatments. We firmly believe in addressing the cause rather than simply treating the symptoms.
What is arthritis?
Arthritis is well-known, but not well understood. Not a single disease, it’s a term covering more than a hundred forms of arthritis. Arthritis is a medical condition that affects the musculoskeletal system, leading to pains, inflammation, stiffness, and joint cartilage damage. 7 million Australians have been diagnosed with arthritis. It causes great pain and stiffness, which can make normal activities like driving, eating, working, and writing difficult. Over the counter painkillers are often prescribed to treat pain and inflammation, but side effects are common due to the high dosages needed for it to be effective.
The most common forms of arthritis are:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Ankylosing spondylitis
Arthritic problems include pain, stiffness, inflammation and damage to joint cartilage. This can result in joint weakness, instability and deformities that can interfere with the most basic daily tasks such as walking, driving a car and preparing food.
Arthritis is the major cause of disability and chronic pain in Australia, and the number of people affected is growing as our population ages. Many people think that arthritis is a condition of the elderly, but it is increasingly striking people in younger age groups. Arthritis is NOT a natural part of getting old.
Arthritis may be caused by:
- injury (osteoarthritis)
- diet related issues (gout)
- your genes (hereditary)
- a misdirected immune system (rheumatoid arthritis and lupus)
What can a naturopathic arthritis relief treatment do for me?
At Total Health Clinic we believe in treating the cause, not the symptoms. Rather than resorting to harmful painkillers, our arthritis relief treatment is tailored to your specific experience of arthritis to help you make more of each day.
Treatment starts using wide angle lasers over the affected joints. The effect of the laser energy is to reduce the inflammation in the joint, thus reducing or eliminating your pain. The reduction of inflammation enables more range of motion in the joint over time. Arthritic conditions commonly need 6-12 treatments. Most people will notice significant improvement after 3-5 treatments.
Some types of arthritis will benefit from dietary changes and supplements, especially gout, rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.
I saw Peter for back pain initially and happened to mention my arthritic pinkie finger. It was never painful, I just couldn’t move it.After working on my back which improved significantly in a few treatments, Peter spent about a minute with his laser over my finger. I didn’t feel anything, but as I left the clinic, I found I could bend the finger I haven’t been able to move for years!It’s about a month later and the finger is almost like new. Wow!!!
