Natural Methods For Reducing Osteoarthritis Pain
There is no cure for osteoarthritis, but you can do many things to relieve pain, reduce inflammation around your joints, and even slow the progression of this condition.
First, What Is Osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It occurs when the cartilage that cushions your joints wears down and exposes the ends of the bones within joints, allowing them to grind against each other. Typically, osteoarthritis is age-related. However, it can also result from overuse of joints in sports, obesity, and more.
It’s most common in your weight-bearing joints, like the knees and hips, spine and feet, and is characterized by a gradual worsening of the condition – it’s not a condition that develops overnight.
There are many invasive measures of treatment, but there are a variety of natural treatments available as well. Let’s look at a few that we offer here in our wellness clinic:
Regenerative therapies are therapeutic methods that actually help to restore and replenish tissue that has been lost.
You can’t completely re-grow cartilage if there isn’t any left, but if you caught your osteoarthritis in its earliest stages of development, regenerative therapies can greatly improve your outlook.
Please note: the following therapies never use fetal tissue.
Stem Cell Injections: Your physician will harvest your adult stem cells from your own marrow or fatty tissue. These stem cells are able to turn into cartilage, bone, muscle, tendon, ligaments, and more – depending on the type of tissue surrounding them. This can help restore cartilage.
Amniotic Injections: Amniotic injections are packed with stem cells as well, growth factors, and cushioning hyaluronic acid. These injections not only help repair lost tissue, but cushion the joint as well.
Physical therapy is a great way to naturally combat OA pain as well! Low-impact exercise, like yoga and swimming, can help build muscle around affected joints, stabilizing the joint and protecting it from further damage.
Aerobic exercises, and manual movement (during which a physical therapist manipulates the joint) can help improve your range of motion and increase strength.
