Joint Muscle Pain or Musculoskeletal pain is one of the most common reasons for people to go to the doctor and its prevalence is on the rise. It contributes to physical inactivity and is often associated with anxiety and depression. Inflammation is the underlying mechanism of joint and muscle pain and needs to be addressed in order to positively impact the condition. Conventional treatment often includes oral anti-inflammatory medication. Though these type of medicines can help with your symptoms they do not address the cause of the inflammation. In addition, as your condition progresses you often need increasing doses or strength of medication. Unfortunately this also means the negative side effects of the medication increases. At the clinic we have found that if you seek to identify and treat the underlying cause of inflammation you can not only significantly reduce symptoms but reduce the need for medication.
