5 useful natural treatments for osteoarthritis!

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and it is very painful. This physiological and biochemical disease occurs when the cartilage providing a buffer between bones breaks and wears away, resulting in the bones rubbing and grinding each other. Even though many view osteoarthritis as a disease of the elderly, a number of reports suggest that 3 out of 5 patients are below the age of 65. Needless to say, you cannot take this disease lightly and we, at Nirvana Naturopathy & Retreat, have natural therapies to ease your pain. 

Take a look at five of the most useful natural treatments for osteoarthritis that we implement. 

  • Exercise: Exercising is a fantastic way to control osteoarthritis. Aerobic exercises, along with gentle weight training and yoga can help to strengthen the muscles around your affected joint, providing it with much greater support. Through exercise, the cartilage receives the nutrients that it requires to remain healthy.
  • Weight management: Through lifestyle and diet changes, we help osteoarthritis patients in losing weight. This is important as too much weight puts pressure, strain and stress on hips and knees, which can worsen the pain. Even losing ten to twenty pounds is known to tremendously benefit patients.
  • Anti-inflammatory foods: Swelling and inflammation are some of the causes of the pain suffered by osteoarthritis patients. By consuming anti-inflammatory foods, you will be able to reduce the pain. Omega-3 fatty acids are known to be excellent in controlling inflammation and improving joint and wound healing. This helps to slow down the progression of osteoarthritis.
  • Acupuncture: Acupuncture is a wonderful treatment for osteoarthritis. This is an ancient Chinese practice involving the insertion of thin needles into specific parts of the body in order to relieve pain. Number of clinical trials has proven that this therapy works and at our wellness and retreat centre, we have experts.
  • Massage therapy: One of the most common natural therapies for osteoarthritis is massage. It is known to relieve pain and stiffness, as well as, increase mobility. Muscle spasms that occur around joints can also be soothed through massage and blood flow can be increased. 

The above-mentioned are only a few of the therapies and treatments that we employ. If you are looking for naturopathy treatment for osteoarthritis, do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
