Relieve joint pain to improve mobility naturally

It doesn’t matter how old you are, with over 230 moveable and semi-moveable joints in your body, there’s a very good chance that at some point in your life you’ll suffer from some sort of joint pain and inflammation. In fact, you may already be one of the millions of Australians affected by some form of arthritic pain. Early intervention with a proactive treatment approach can help to delay the onset and severity of joint pain and inflammation so you can actively participate in everyday activities for years to come.

 Joints, pain and inflammation

We all experience joint pain differently and may even have completely different symptoms, range of mobility and other factors that can make it better or worse. Inflamed, painful joints are characterised by swelling, heat, immobility and redness. Joint pain limits your movement which further decreases mobility and increases stiffness, while chronic inflammation leads to tissue destruction and thickening or scarring of the connective tissues found in joints.

 Joints are made up of connective tissues including cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscles and bones, and joint pain is usually associated with some form of cartilage damage. Smooth healthy cartilage protects the joint and the end of the bones, and once the cartilage is damaged, it becomes uneven and creates friction of the bones. Tendons, ligaments and muscles surrounding the joint tend to weaken with the joint becoming distorted, inflamed, painful and stiff.

Acute inflammation is immediate; necessary for the healing process to begin and usually resolves quite quickly. Chronic inflammation can last for several years, leading to destruction of tissue and thickening and scarring of connective tissue found in your joints.
