Cranial Therapy for Arthritic Pain

Therapy for arthritis can help with pain relief and help you move more easily, and can work as an adjunct to core osteoarthritis treatments and exercise.

What Causes Arthritis?

As we age, arthritis damages the cartilage of joints, which normally acts as a cushion in the joint.

As the cartilage wears away, the bones of the joint press against each other and this causes pain.

The muscles around the affected joint also often tighten up in response to the changes, causing more stiffness and pain.

How Does Cranial Therapy Help With Your Arthritis?

Although cranial therapy cannot cure arthritis itself, it can provide relief to the pain it causes.

Gentle work around the affected joint(s), relaxes the muscles around the joints helping relieve the pressure and improve mobility.

Other areas of the body will also be treated to makes sure they work as well as they can, to reduce the stress on the arthritic joints.

Which Joints Are Commonly Affected? Knee Arthritis, Hip Arthritis.

The Hip and Knee joints are commonly mentioned by patients with arthritis, although other joints can be affected to, including those in the spine.
