When your body is in pain and is not healing, you have to have a strategy for rehabilitating non-healing tissues like joints and muscles. The following strategies are excellent tools for feeding tissues and helping them regain normal function. The biggest mistake I see patients make in trying to heal chronic pain is that they will pick only one of the following strategies when all are required.

Replace Nutrients: specific nutrients like omega 3 fatty acids decreased stiffness and pain with no side effects. Minerals, bioflavonoids, antioxidants and amino acids are all necessary fro healthy muscle function.

Enhance Digestion: optimum intestinal health can correct unhealthy bacteria which cause joint inflammation and chronic muscle pain. Bacterial liposaccharides which are toxins from the bowel bacteria have been shown to disturb the maintenance of healthy joints. Therapy programs which correct intestinal permeability, food intolerence, bacterial imbalance, immune globulin deficiency, and diminished enzymes in digestion help to provide healthy, clean blood to damaged muscles and tendons.

Diminish Inflammation: bioflavonoids, amino acids and phytochemicals diminish chemical cascades of pain chemicals and balance the body chemistry. Natural proteolytic enzymes, herbal prostaglandin, leukotriene, and thromboxane blocking agents, and botanical circulation enhancers “move blood” and resolve pain and inflammation.

Optimize Motion: all forms of physical therapies must enhance motion of joints, soft tissue, and fluids in the body (blood, lymph, cerebrospinal fluid). The use of direct manipulation, fascial release, soft tissue “sculpting”, acupuncture, bee venom therapy, neural therapy, ultrasound, and hydrotherapy is applied according to the type of injury and stage of inflammation.
