Arthritis is a good example of a group of conditions where an holistic approach can be very helpful.
Arthritis literally means inflammation ("itis") of the joint ("arthro") but the word is colloquially used and extended to include all sorts of joint, bone and even muscle arches and pains. Unless you are very clear on the type of arthritis and the cauuse as a factor, it is best to have an assessment in relation to an holistic approach. Examples of treatments used by the doctors at the practice are nutritional and acupuncture treatments for fibromyalgia; dietary, nutritional and homeopathic treatments for rheumatoid arthritis; lifestyle and manipulation treatment for degenerative arthritis.
Often patients who present with inflammatory arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis, will also have pensitivities and allergies.
