BONE, MUSCLE & JOINTS
Maintaining Strength And Flexibility
While the average lifespan has increased, so to has the incidence of diseases and conditions resulting from ‘wear and tear’ of the musculoskeletal system.
Bones, muscles, joints, and tendons are all affected by the added stress placed on our bodies, resulting in decreased motility, balance, and functionality, and an increase in pain and inflammation.
It is this chronic inflammatory cascade system that is responsible for the onset of other diseases, so the importance of maintaining musculoskeletal health is now no longer considered as purely for purpose of functionality and movement.
While many of the popular prescriptions that are aimed at relieving associated pains often come with an increased risk of serious long-term use effects, thankfully there are many natural and safe science-based alternatives.
Our practitioners may use physical therapy, or nutritional and herbal therapies to naturally promote musculoskeletal health, including support for healthy bone mineralisation and remodelling, as well as support for connective tissue health.
Below are some common afflictions associated with the musculoskeletal health:
When a baby is born, they have 300 bones in their body! However, the adult skeleton is made up of around 206 bones as bones fuse together as people mature.
Adults have a total of 600 muscles! Moving our hands takes up 34 muscles, 17 in the palm of our hands, and 18 in our arms.
- Arthritis ( many kinds such as; osteoarthritis, rheumatoid, psoriatic, gouty, ankylosing spondylitis, juvenile, scleroderma)
- Muscle spasms, aches, and cramps
- Low bone mineral density
- Strains and sprains
- Injuries and fractures
We have had great successes in reducing pain naturally, and in establishing strong musculoskeletal foundations. Speak to a Naturopath, Acupuncturist, Kinesiologist, or Nutritionist for your personalised treatment protocol.
