Every day in our Toronto clinic, we see arthritis pain.
We see arthritis in hands and fingers, arthritis pain in the back, and arthritis pain in knees.
Often, arthritis makes it hard for these people to just get through the day.
And that’s before it becomes severe weakness, muscle wasting or chronic restricted movements.
Contrary to popular belief, it’s not just older adults who have arthritis pain. Younger adults and even children suffer from it, too.
Here in our clinic, we use naturopathic remedies for people looking for arthritis pain relief.
Here are some arthritis treatment tips from a few of our naturopathic doctors. They have a lot of experience with how to relieve arthritis pain…
Dr. Anthony Gucciardi, Naturopathic Doctor
We do get patients calling the clinic with joint pain as their chief concern.
Often patients will come in with a western diagnosis, whether it’s osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, or osteophytes. There’s a number reasons someone may have joint pain.
With Naturopathic, you have the opportunity to take the time to understand someone’s lifestyle. To learn what may be contributing to the further breakdown of cartilage, as in osteoarthritis. Or the autoimmune condition, as in rheumatoid arthritis.
That’s the great thing about Naturopathic Medicine, you are able to spend time with your patients. You are able to get to know them. You are able to use their lifestyles and their diets as tools to help them. It’s about education.
There are options in terms of integrative care that can really help the patient. They can come back to a more functional and pain free life.
Dr. Amanda Jaeger, Naturopathic Doctor
I have seen patients with pain; you can use various modalities in terms of herbal medicine and different botanicals that work well.
Simple things like hydrotherapy that patients can do from their own home, learning a process of using the things around them to deal with pain.
Doctor as teacher is something that we do hold to a high regard in Naturopathic Medicine. We like teaching our patients how to utilize the things that are at their fingertips. Simple methods that may not take too much time, but are a big help in their day-to-day.
