Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine in Brighton, Melbourne

Treatment for osteoarthritic pain

Osteoarthritic pain is also known as ‘bi-syndrome’ in Chinese Medicine and happens to be very common especially in Melbourne.

Trained TCM practitioners need to differentiate the presenting symptoms in order to make a diagnosis and develop an effective treatment plan. A combination of acupuncture and herbal medicine is often used.

Features of interest include the nature of the pain if it’s wandering or fixed sited, if it is hot, burning gout-like pain or aggravated in cold or hot humid weather.

Other symptoms such as joint stiffness, lumpy swellings, actual bony changes and x-ray results of the joints will all help to establish the degree of pathology present.

It is very common and safe for arthritic conditions to be treated in conjunction with standard Western Medical treatment such as anti-inflammatory and analgesic or pain relief medication.

The best result that some patients might expect however from treatment is symptomatic pain relief. Some may find that their symptoms fully or partially resolved and others may find that the deterioration in their symptoms is slowed and they are able to live more comfortably with their condition.
