Inflammation can take many different forms, but it most commonly shows up around your muscles and joints. While sometimes you may simply experience sore joints after a workout, you may also experience more severe and chronic issues like fibromyalgia and arthritis. At Nardini Naturopathic, we have pain and musculoskeletal treatments to help you overcome your physical discomforts so you can get your life back on track.
What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a musculoskeletal condition, which affects your muscles and joints. It most commonly affects adult women.
The following are some of the symptoms of fibromyalgia:
- Deep exhaustion, even when you wake up after a refreshing sleep
- Tender points on your body without any obvious reason.
- Anxiety or depression
- Chronic headaches
- Decreased pain threshold
- Widespread pain throughout your body
- Dry mouth, eyes, or nose
- Inability to concentrate
- Irritable bowel syndrome
Dr. Nardini, ND provides naturopathic solutions to those who suffer from fibromyalgia.
What is Arthritis?
Arthritis is one of the most common ailments worldwide. There are more than 100 different medical conditions, which fall under the umbrella term “arthritis”, including rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
These are some of the symptoms of arthritis:
- Excessive stiffness after a period of rest
- Joint pain during or after use, or during changes in weather
- Joint swelling
- Decreased flexibility
Dr. Nardini, ND offers naturopathic health solutions for arthritis.
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is an ailment, which affects many people in the modern world. It results from pressure on the median nerve in your wrist. Those who spend a lot of time seated at a desk working on a computer are particularly prone to carpal tunnel syndrome, but it can also be caused by thyroid issues, including hypothyroidism, as well as arthritis, diabetes, pregnancy, obesity, and even smoking!
If you experience any of the following symptoms, you may be suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome:
- Sore wrists or hands
- A tingling, numb feeling in the wrists or hands
- Pain in your fingers, especially in the thumb, index, middle, and ring finger.
Dr. Nardini, ND can help you discover what is causing your carpal tunnel syndrome, and provide naturopathic treatment for it.
What is Disk Herniation?
A disk herniation, or a herniated disk, slipped disk, or ruptured disk, is a spinal condition in your lower back. When you experience disk herniation, one of the disks, which make up your spine, pushes outward. This can cause lower back pain or leg pain (sciatica). This can be caused by excessive back strain, obesity, and a sedentary lifestyle, including long periods of sitting, or frequent driving.
If you experience any of the following symptoms, you may be experiencing disk herniation:
- Back pain, especially in your lower back
- Numbness, pain, or weakness in your legs and feet
- In rare cases, you may experience loss of bladder control.
If you believe you may be experiencing disk herniation, contact Dr. Nardini, ND for a consultation and to develop a strategy to repair the damage.
Pain and Musculoskeletal Treatments
These diseases can cause a great deal of pain and severely impact your quality of life. But there is hope!
Naturopathic treatment can go a long way toward not only determining the causes of your musculoskeletal pain, but in promoting the healing process – encouraging your body to rid itself of these ailments. Traditional Chinese Medicine, in particular acupuncture, can be especially effective in treating musculoskeletal disorders.
