As an initial treatment of arthritis, your doctor will recommend resting and avoiding lifting weights. Our all-natural anti-inflammatory supplements are another option to reduce the swelling and inflammation to provide relief from the pains. Physiotherapy modalities like the Acuscope, Ultrasound, and MyACT (P-wave) can be very helpful for arthritic patients as these science-based modalities alleviate the pain and restore muscles and normal joint function.
In severe cases of arthritis where no form of treatment is helping the patient overcome their pain, then the doctor will refer the patient to a physiatrist or an orthopedic doctor for a second opinion.
