Acupuncture for Arthritis Orlando
One of the most common health problems you’re likely to face once you reach 50 is joint pain and stiffness due to arthritis. An estimated one out of every three adults, about 70 million Americans in all has been diagnosed with arthritis or has chronic joint symptoms. Women are particularly at risk, according to the Arthritis Foundation, arthritis affects about twice as many women as men.
Arthritis is a chronic condition that often lasts a lifetime. Currently there is no cure. That may seem discouraging, but fortunately, there’s much reason for optimism. Today, there are medications that can provide arthritis pain relief, and self-care measures that can help keep your joints pain-free and mobile. And when these strategies fail, alternative therapies such as Traditional Chinese Medicine can be helpful before turning to surgery surgery as a last resort. With proper medical treatment, and incorporating alternative modalities most people who have arthritis can continue to lead active lives, even in their older years.
If you or a loved on is suffering from arthritis, you need accurate, reliable information as a key part of your treatment plan. Contrary to all the ads for miracle cures and instant pain relievers that you may hear on the radio or see in newspapers or magazines, arthritis treatment often involves trial and error to find the best combination of drugs(which could be western or natural depending on the severity) and other alternative therapies to relieve your symptoms.
