What treatments we typically prescribe?
When cartilage has been worn away, it can be difficult to improve these conditions as cartilage does not repair easily, however, we can help reduce the pain and prevent it from getting worse. We use herbal medicine alongside acupuncture or electric-acupuncture to treat the symptoms of arthritis
About your Condition
Arthritis affects the lining of cartilage within the joint, normally resulting and showing degeneration of cartilage. This makes movement more difficult, leading to pain and stiffness, which will progressively get worse over time if untreated, which are symptoms we commonly see.
- Joint pain, tenderness and stiffness inflammation in and around the joints
- Warm, red skin over the affected joint weakness and muscle wasting
- Restricted movement of the joints
