In most cases, osteoarthritis pain can be relieved in several sessions of intraneural therapy.  This therapy treats the cause of the arthritis at the joint, permitting the joint to begin to heal and function normally.  After the initial session or sessions, the therapy may need to be repeated at a later date or dates.  Most cases report that the intervals get longer and longer until they are no longer needed.

Once the cause of the arthritis is removed from the joint then the cartilage has the opportunity to regenerate since it is once again able to receive oxygen and nourishment.  When this happens we see regeneration of cartilage naturally.  Of course, it doesn't hurt to supply it with the building blocks of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate to help it along.  Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are found naturally occurring in the body and are just what cartilage needs to regenerate.  Unfortunately, as we get older our bodies do not produce enough of these vital substances to keep our joints in top shape.  We just a little supplemental help.

Glucosamine is an amino sugar that seems to play a role in cartilage formation. Chondroitin sulfate is part of the protein molecule that gives cartilage its elasticity.  The NIH recently found that these supplements relieve pain in people who suffer from osteoarthritis.  Syn-flex, a glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate supplement, which you can order from this website is reported to relieve pain in as little as 2 weeks or your money back. 

We think we are seeing this reduction of pain as a result of increased cartilage growth or regeneration in the affected joint.  It should follow that if a lack of cartilage was the cause of joint pain then the reduction of joint pain would mean an increase of the cartilage since neither one of the substances in question are pain killers.


Cartilage Loss is the Symptom not the Cause of Osteoarthritis.

Several researchers on different occasions have found that when they put a clamp, like the clamp that is depicted below, on a monkeys knee to compress the joint that in as little as 3 days the monkeys had arthritis.  When the researchers left the clamps on longer there was loss of cartilage and subsequently a complete degeneration of the monkey's joint.

Now here is the good news those poor monkeys gave us.

When the clamps where removed the joint recovered and worked normally

The cartilage regenerated.   What does this teach us?  Simply that cartilage loss is happening because of a force that is compressing the cartilage.  If we remove the force that is causing the compression then we can get our joint back to normal if we act in time.



Both primary osteoarthritis, the type that occurs spontaneously, and secondary osteoarthritis,  the type that develops from an accident, have something in common.  The muscles above and below the joint are in a spasm that makes a clamp like the one above.  This puts the joint in a state of constant compression and the cartilage cannot "breathe" the synovial fluid it needs to live.  As a result, it deteriorates.  Maybe it just goes into "hibernation" waiting for the day it will again get the synovial fluid it needs.  Synovial fluid is a syrup like liquid in each joint that provides lubrication and nourishment to the cartilage.

Cartilage is the "bearing" that separates the bones from each other and makes the joint work smoothly.  Cartilage is like a sponge. It expels synovial fluid when compressed and sucks it back in when the compression is released.  This happens naturally as the joints move, but especially in our back, hips and knees.  If the muscles are in spasm then the vital synovial fluid cannot reach the cartilage except for a small area that is fed by the bone marrow at each joint.  This area is too small to feed the entire cartilage at the joint so we have the sponge action to do this.

Now the reasons your muscles are in spasm around the affected joint is because there is nerve damage there.  You can see this for yourself by gently pressing on different areas around the affected the joint.  You will find some areas to be very sensitive,  maybe very painful.  That is where you have nerve damage that is causing the muscle spasm and clamping your joint together.  When your nerves were damaged they were not able to heal for one reason or another.  Damaged, unhealed nerves around a joint are the cause of your arthritis.

The nerves and their ganglia form an internal communication system in our bodies that is very complicated.  Relief in one area above or below a joint, may bring to light unnoticed pain in another area around the joint.  This is because the pain in the first area was more intense than the other and cancelled out the lesser pain.  Then after an intraneural session the intense pain that was relieved allows the lesser pain to be felt.  This is why we say one or two sessions to relieve your pain and get you on the way to recovery. Some patients may require additional sessions.

Our intraneural therapy heals the nerves, which allows the muscles around the to joint relax so it can move normally again, instead of in a compressed state, like the clamp above.  This gives your cartilage a chance to "breathe" again and begin to regenerate itself.

Early treatment means little or no permanent damage.  If some of your joints are already knarled you may want to elect a surgical procedure to correct that damage.  We have some very fine orthopedic surgeons associated with our clinic with years of experience.  One surgeon has logged over 700 successful total knee replacements to date.  We hope that this will not be necessary for you, but if it is we can help repair the damage with whatever option is needed. 

The National Institute of Health (NIH) just recently completed clinical trials of glucosamine and found that it does reduce pain in arthritic patients.  You can read about this by clicking here.  Click on the banner to learn more and order your first months supply.  You are just a few days from feeling better with Synflex.  We think that adding Syn-flex to your regimen will help to roll back the damage caused by the amoebas we talked about on the RA page of this website or the damaged nerves discussed here.
