Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints which can cause debilitating pain.
It comes in many forms such as; Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Psoriatic arthritis, Infectious and reactive arthritis and Gout but to name a few.
Osteoarthritis is the most common. This is where cartilage in your joints breaks down, eventually causing your bones to rub together and the joints to be inflamed. This in turn leads to symptoms such as joint soreness, particularly in the morning and poor coordination.
Age, obesity, injuries, family history and joint overuse can all raise the risk of developing it.
Gout is another common form of arthritis which causes sudden onset of swelling and severe pain in joints. Gout is seen often in the big toe and the knee but can occur in any joint. Hyperuricemia is where there is too much uric acid in the body. The body makes uric acid when it breaks down purines, which are found in your body and the foods you eat.
K-Laser treatment is ideal for long-term maintenance of incurable conditions such as arthritis, as an alternative or in conjunction with ongoing medication.
It is a safe and non-invasive technique that promotes the body's own reparative processes.
