So you can keep moving.

Opening doors, cutting steak, kneeling over your tomato plants—these are activities you should be able to do with ease. When you have arthritis, even the little things can be painful, but you don’t have to settle for living with it.

If you have joint pain, you might have osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis.

What causes osteoarthritis?

Trauma and join overuse can cause osteoarthritis. So can infections and poor diet. The pain gets progressively worse as the cartilage that allows your joints to move freely degenerates and creates bone spurs.

For many, it’s a natural part of aging, but with naturopathic treatment, our goal is to help you to continue to enjoy life’s little moments with confidence and keep your independence with different modalities that work for your pain and mobility.

How can we treat your osteoarthritis?

If you’ve tried treating your arthritis pain and inflammation with medication such as ibuprofen or aspirin, they might have relieved pain for a little while, but there were probably side effects. Never mind worsening conditions.

These types of medications, referred to as NSAIDS, can actually increase the degeneration of your joints.
