A strong relationship exists between chronic musculoskeletal conditions and a reduced capacity to engage in physical activity. This can lead to functional decline, reduced well-being, and loss of independence. Naturopathic medicine can provide therapeutic benefit for musculoskeletal conditions as well as therapies that optimize athletic performance.
Chronic pain can be debilitating and significantly impact quality of life. Many factors contribute to chronic pain, including poorly controlled inflammation, tissue degeneration, and inappropriate pain perception. Naturopathic medicine offers several non-pharmacologic therapies to address pain such as medical electro acupuncture, myofascial release, nutraceuticals, and clinical nutrition.
Below are some conditions that I commonly see and treat in practice:
Autoimmune musculoskeletal conditions including rheumatoid arthritis and myasthenia gravis
Chronic muscle pain
Inflammatory disorders such as connective tissue disorders
Chronic nerve pain
