Musculoskeletal Clinic


The Musculoskeletal Clinic runs all year round. Joint, Muscle and Bone problems seem to affect most people at one time or another especially later in life or for the sporty types among us. Signs of an inflamed musculoskeletal system are usually fairly obvious – pain and swelling. These symptoms are uncomfortable and can also affect our quality of life. What starts off as a twinge can soon turn into full blown pain and inflammation. Once you start treatment with anti-inflammatory’s you then go down the pathway of having to use other drugs to combat the side effects in the gut. If one drug doesn’t work, another is added and the path with drugs alone can be hard to navigate safely. The good news is that we can use herbs and key nutrients to help. Fortunately, many of the herbal remedies we use have been shown to be effective anti-inflammatory’s, muscle relaxants, and pain relievers. By also making simple diet changes we can add in some key nutrients that can make a significant difference to your pain levels.

Our Musculoskeletal Clinic specialises in helping identify your triggers and warning signs as we help you become more competent at learning how to influence your muscles, bones and joints with foods, herbs and self-care. In your appointment we go over the foods you are consuming and determine what you should be eating for your lifestyle, age and gender plus how to address bone, muscle and joint health with diet and supplements. We start you off on a herbal programme designed to treat your particular melody of signs & symptoms which may include gut health, stress levels or food allergies. As we see you in follow ups, we see what works for you and we are able to paint you a picture of how to look after your important connective tissue.

If  we don’t look after our musculoskeletal system, then our whole lives get affected by this and we tend to exercise less and less to compensate. What we need to remember is that stress and gut health influences our health so much so that inflammation within the body is now thought to originate from an inflamed gut. In other words if your gut is inflamed – so are you. In the long term, if the gut isn’t looked at, inflammation levels inside the body continue to rise. We also need our gut absorbing nutrients effectively in order to feed our joints, and we need quality sleep in order to heal our connective tissue. Stress is a key player in managing pain but the catch 22 is that pain also affects sleep quality. Stress and underlying gut infections are therefore one of the big things we talk about in regards to inflammation. What started off as a genetic tendency for inflammation {nature} plus a lifetime of use {nurture} means that joints, muscles and bone can deteriorate faster than the rest of us.
