Joint Pain /Arthritis


Arthritis is a degenerative joint disease causing severe pain, inflammation, and disability and has no apparent cure. There are more than 3 million people diagnosed with arthritis in the U.S. every year and many of these people suffer with daily joint pain and stiffness. One of the main recommended treatments for severe arthritis pain is invasive joint replacement surgery but the risks of surgery are great. Surgery can create life-long irreversible symptoms like joint stiffness, weakness, and immobility. It is best to seek out a non-surgical solution for Arthritis before undergoing surgery.

The pain of Arthritis is caused by the deteriation of cartilage tissue in the joint that leaves a person susceptible to bone on bone friction during the joint's movements. Cartilage acts as a shock absorber to the body's daily movements so that the bones do not rub against each other. Without proper cartilage, bone on bone friction creates pain, inflammation and disability. Because Arthritis is a degenerative condition, cartilage tissue will continue to break down leaving one susceptible to constant and ever-increasing joint pain.
