Health Conditions | Arthritis

No doubt about it: chronic pain is, well…a pain! And one of the most common types of chronic pain is arthritis. Yet, there is some good news for arthritis sufferers. Today, many research dollars are being funneled into arthritis studies, so treatment options are constantly expanding. Natural therapies are gaining a reputation for their effectiveness in treating this condition.


For instance, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) now recommends acupuncture for treating arthritis pain and inflammation. Bastyr’s practitioners are also knowledgeable about using Chinese herbal medicine, physical medicine and various types of naturopathic medicine to alleviate pain and swelling associated with arthritis while side-stepping pharmaceutical drugs.


These articles should provide a starting point for exploring these options.
