or degenerative joint disease is one of the oldest and most common forms
of joint dysfunction. It is characterized by the breakdown of the
cartilage and linings of the joints. Cartilage is the tough fibrous
tissue that protects the bone. It is smooth as to allow movement with
little friction. With its loss, the bones rub together causing pain,
deformation and loss of movement.
allopathic view of arthritis's cause is age (mostly after 45), obesity
(mostly knees), joint injuries (sports and work related), and genetics
(tends to run in families). The treatments used by medical doctors
include exercise, NSAIDS (i.e. aspirins and its cousins), heat and cold
therapy, surgery, weight control and drugs that reduce COX-2 (an
inflammatory produced by your body). The treatments do not attempt to
stop or reverse the loss of cartilage over time, and eventually, joint
replacements become necessary.
technique is based on a different core belief. It is believed that the
disease is, in fact, triggered by external pathogenic factors. These
pathogens invade the body and prefer to reside in the synovial fluid of
the joints. Since there is little circulation of immune system
components in the joints, they are not subject to attack by your immune
system. However, if there is trauma or stress on a joint the
inflammation of the area can cause your immune system to become aware of
the presence of the pathogens. When that happens the immune system
begins to tear apart the joint in an effort to detect and destroy the
acupressure on specific points, it is possible to eliminate the
pathogens and stop the immune system's attack on the cartilage and
diminish the pain and stiffness. Typically, four to six treatments are
required. In some cases, the pain and stiffness are 100% eliminated.
