Healthy joints are crucial to our overall, holistic health. The joints are responsible for connecting the different parts of the body between bones. They play a crucial role in the body: they help us to move and they provide support. This means that, when joint pain occurs, it can affect every part of your life and your holistic health. Treatment is, therefore, crucial and understanding the cause of pain will help to identify the most effective treatments.
What Causes Joint Pain?
Although patients of any age can experience joint pain, they are particularly common in the elderly and those who are overweight. There are many different conditions that can lead to painful joints such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, injuries that commonly cause strains and sprains, as well as less common conditions such as gout and bursitis. These conditions are usually associated with inflammation in the localized areas which causes the pain.
What Treatments Are Available for Joint Pain?
It is first important to consult with your doctor if you are experiencing joint pain. They will be able to identify whether different treatments are safe for your particular case. The goal of any treatment is to reduce the pain and inflammation and to preserve joint function as much as possible. Treatments can vary from medicinal via the use of painkillers, behavioral changes, including exercises and posture changes, as well as effective, alternative treatments such as magnetic therapy. It is important to seek counsel from your doctor before embarking on any treatment or health change.
