Multiple Joint Pain

Multiple Joint Pain is increasing in frequency in the modern world.

It can also be referred to as Polyarthritis, Polymyalgia Rheumatica, Fibromyalgia, & can even be a symptom of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The joints & surrounding tissues become painful because of low grade chronic inflammation.

It is increasingly viewed as auto-immune illness, where the body’s defence system becomes disoriented & attacks itself.

Over the years we have consulted countless people with this confusing & variously diagnosed condition. Medical treatment is aimed at alleviating symptoms & as such, has a poor record overall.

Our experience with this condition is generally very positive.

The basic underlying causes of why the inflammation is present have to be addressed.

We do this with a thorough case history & diet & lifestyle appraisal.

Specific recommendations are then made concerning diet, allergy avoidance, exercise, rest & stress management techniques.

Physical treatment (osteopathy) augments this “internal” approach & in most cases results in a marked reduction of pain (inflammation).

Obviously the longer & more severe the problem, the less quickly & less complete the recovery.
