What joints do for our bodies and why they may be in pain
Joints provide support for our bodies and make it possible for us to move in complex ways. Joint pain may be the result of injury, infection, or inflammation.
Joint pain — knee pain is the most common — may also be connected to arthritis and muscle pain. And, sometimes, the side effect of certain medications, including antibiotics, can cause joint or muscle pain.
Joint pain is discomfort that arises from any joint — the point where two or more bones meet.
Joint pain is sometimes called arthritis or arthralgia. Joint pain can be mild, causing some soreness each time you move your joint. Or joint pain can be severe, making it impossible to use your joint.
Joint pain is rarely an emergency. Most cases of mild joint pain can be successfully managed at home.
Joint pain, often has a common origin, and surpisingly that is in the gut. Reactions and infections that happen in the gut can create body wide pain and even be the cause of it. Many anti-inflammatories are effective, conventional and natural, but most effective is treating the cause and figuring out why you have joint pain and where it is coming from.
If you are experiencing chronic fatigue, you may have joint pain and other symptoms as well.

Prolozone therapy is extremely safe and can be used to help resolve chronic pain. The treatment tightens connective tissue in the joints, leading to greater joint stability and less pain. This homeopathic technique also causes the joints, ligaments, and tendons to heal using oxygen, vitamins, and minerals. Here’s how it works: ozone is injected in and around ligaments where they attach to the bone.
• Platelet Rich Injections.
PRP naturally occurs in our bodies. Concentrations of platelets are injected into the joint may have the ability to heal the joint, for enhanced functionality and comfort.

Your joint pain may be the result of excess weight. Our natural weight loss solutions use a natural, holistic, effective approach to weight loss.

Integrative medicine is a comprehensive, science-based approach to medical care that draws on the best of many different specialties: natural medicine, allopathic (or conventional) medicine, diagnostic testing, nutrition, metabolism, detoxification, nutritional supplements, customized diets, acupuncture, chiropractic, and massage, among others. In integrative medicine, natural medical therapies are preferred as a way to mimic and enhance the body’s natural, healing abilities while minimizing unwanted side effects.
The focus is to address the underlying causes of illness, not just the symptoms, and to promote health of the whole person- mind, body, and spirit. If you are looking for a different approach to solving many of the medical issues and symptoms that plague millions of people around the world on a daily basis, then consider Progressive Medical Center.
The principles of integrative medicine:
- A partnership between patient and practitioner in the healing process
- Investigate and address the underlying causes of illness, rather than treating only the symptoms (via diagnostic testing)
- Appropriate use of conventional and alternative methods to facilitate the body’s innate healing response
- Consideration of all factors that influence health, wellness and disease, including mind, body, spirit, and community
- A philosophy that critically evaluates and selects conventional medical and alternative therapies based on clinical outcomes and known side effects
- Recognition that good medicine should be based in good science, be inquiry driven, and be open to new paradigms
- Use of natural, effective, less-invasive interventions whenever possible
