Arthritis occurs when your joints become inflamed, and this can lead to complications such as reduced range of motion, swelling, pain, and stiffness. It’s a potentially very painful condition, and lots of times when people turn to conventional treatments, such as expensive medicine or risky surgeries, they’re very disappointed in the lack of results they see from these procedures. Thankfully, there are other, more safe and natural ways to deal with painful joints, and here at Lean Healthy Life in Tucson, we will work hard to find a treatment that works for you.
When you call us to set up your arthritis consultation, we can go into more detail about which specific treatments work well with certain symptoms, but for now, take a look at this overview of what arthritis is and how we hope to treat it.
What Is Arthritis?
When dealing with arthritis, it’s important to remember that this isn’t a single disease, but rather, is a collection of conditions. There are over one hundred types of arthritic disorders, and it’s important that we figure out which kind you have. When you stop by for your consultation, we’ll ask you about any pain you are experiencing and your medical history to best determine which type you are suffering from.
The most common form of arthritis that people encounter is osteoarthritis. This wearing and tearing of the joints affects over twenty million people in the United States. It is most commonly associated with getting older; however, athletes with severe sports injuries or obese people are also at risk of osteoarthritis.
Another type of arthritis that is seen frequently is rheumatoid arthritis. This is an autoimmune disease that affects almost one and a half million people in the United States. Because of it, your immune system begins to actually attack the cells within your joints. Rheumatoid arthritis causes chronic inflammation which can lead to the destruction of bone, cartilage, and ligaments. In extreme cases it can also cause bone deformities.
What Can Be Done About Arthritis?
Unfortunately, arthritis is a disease without a cure, but this doesn’t mean that you cannot experience relief from its symptoms. There are millions of people living with and successfully managing this condition today. Here at Lean Healthy Life, we offer many programs that can help alleviate the pain associated with arthritis.
For example, you might want to try our detoxification program. This treatment is designed to help stimulate the removal of harmful wastes and toxins that have accumulated in your body over time. Many of these dangerous substances gather in your joints, which leads to the painful inflammatory symptoms you suffer from. With a detox, you may find that your pain has been drastically reduced!
Whatever treatment you ultimately decide on, you can be certain that we will help advise you every step of the way. We’re dedicated to finding you a treatment that helps bring wellness to both your mind and body, and we won’t stop until you’re completely satisfied.
