ADVERTORIAL

NEARLY everyone experiences joint pain. People usually assume that joint pain is only due to arthritis which is inflammation of the joints.

The two main causes of arthritis are degenerative (osteoarthritis or spondylosis) and inflammatory (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis). There is no cure for any type of arthritis.

However, most people with arthritis will benefit significantly from conservative treatment such as chiropractic combined with medical intervention. Chiropractic treatment aims at reducing or eliminating pain, improving movement and function, improving psychological well being and early return to work.

Other causes of joint pain (besides arthritis) such as sprains and muscle strains respond well to chiropractic treatment.

However, irrespective of the cause, treatment should ideally commence when symptoms begin and not after weeks or months.

Dr Shaik has extensive clinical, and research experience with treating joint pain.
