Do you suffer from joint pain?
Joint pain is a common issue affecting many people. Many people are not unaware that joint pain can be addressed and prevented. As often as not, we tend to ascribe the cause of joint pain to things like ‘wear and tear’ and ‘old age’. Unfortunately, these assumptions tend to cause people to stop searching for solutions.
How would you feel without joint pain?
At the Natural Clinic, our approach to addressing joint pain works by examining the issue on both a cellular level as well as by exploring what might be happening to cause an issue.
A major hindrence to recovery can be inflammation, a physiological reaction that occurs in response to a perceived attack on the body. After an accident or injury, this reaction can become oversensitized, resulting in an inappropriate release of stress hormones like cortisol in response to relatively minor threats. To address this, we recommend Nutritional Therapy to reduce the overproduction of cortisol in the system to help de-stress and rebalance the system.
