Arthritis is not a single disease; rather, it is a term used for more than 100 medical conditions the commonality among these being that they all affect the musculoskeletal system and specifically the joints. Arthritis-related joint problems include pain, stiffness, inflammation, and damage to joint cartilage and surrounding structures.
Arthritis is treatable or controllable with natural means studied by our naturopathic doctor. Effective control of the progression of symptoms in degenerative arthritis, lupus, rheumatoid, gout, and others is initially determined by the accurate diagnosis, which is best done by a combination of laboratory and radiology.
At Arizona Integrative Medical Center, Dr. Stallone has experience in treating the pain and disability associated with arthritis, utilizing Regenerative Joint Therapy (RJT) / Prolotherapy, nutraceutical supplements, herbal therapies, nutrition, exercise / physiotherapy, medications, orthotics, and advanced manipulative therapies. These, when combined with weight reduction, exercise, and nutrition, have the highest potential of reducing pain and improving motion, even as high as those taking strong pain medications (without the side effects).
Dr. Stallone treats the whole person by providing patients with the proper treatment plan that allows the body to heal itself and relieve the person from the associated pain that he or she has been experiencing due to arthritis.
