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 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.

Oxidative therapies are used for a wide variety of illnesses, including joint pain. Hydrogen peroxide, ozone, and UV light are used to harness the power of free radicals and remove unwanted virus, fungi, bacteria, or cancer cells from the body.
• Prolozone therapy.
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 repair using oxygen, vitamins, and minerals. For ozone to work best, it is injected in and around ligaments where they attach.

Select forms of natural injections into the joint may have the ability to help heal the joint, for enhanced functionality and comfort. We have a range of natural injections for joints; please call for more details.
