Osteoarthritis & Rheumatoid Arthritis
Osteoarthritis is characterised by the breakdown of the joint cartilage and may affect any joint in the body. In a healthy joint, the ends of the bones are encased in smooth cartilage. These are protected by a joint capsule lined with a synovial membrane that produces synovial fluid. The capsule and fluid protect the cartilage, muscles and connective tissue. With osteoarthritis the cartilage becomes worn away. Spurs grow out from the edge of the bone, and synovial fluid increases. The result of this is that the affected joint or joints feel stiff and sore. The cartilage damage may be due to the action of mechanical stress that results in an imbalance of enzymes released from the cartilage cells or from the lining of the joint. Too much of the enzymes can cause the joint cartilage to break down faster than it can be rebuilt. Instead of true repair there is growth of new bone along the sides of the existing bone. This produces prominent lumps, most noticeable on hands and feet. Each of the steps in this attempted repair process produces pain.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disease which is characterized by
inflammation of the lining, or synovium (synovial stratum) of the joints.
This disease can lead to long-term joint damage, the result being chronic pain, loss of function and the possibility of complete disability. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) progresses in three distinct stages. The first stage of the disease is the swelling of the synovial lining. This swelling causes pain, warmth, stiffness, and redness and swelling around the joint. The second stage is the rapid division and growth of cells, or pannus, which causes the synovium to thicken. In the third stage, the inflamed cells release enzymes that can digest bone and cartilage. When this happens, it can cause the joint concerned to lose its shape and alignment. This leads to more pain coupled with a loss of movement.
It is known that the body's immune system plays an important role in rheumatoid arthritis.
This is how we can actually help you.
With Hypnotherapy we recondition your subconscious mind.
When you have a cut on your body, your subconscious sees it as a foreign “object” that should not be there.
Jumps into motor-action and send neurons to heal the cut. In hypnotherapy we do the same, through suggestion, we suggest that your subconscious help decrease the mechanical stress on your body, helping the joint lining and cartilage cells to produce the correct balance of enzymes. We also are increasing the lubrication of the joints making movement easier.
Alongside your medical treatment, your subconscious will jump into motor-action and also fight to help the joint
cartilage breakdown, to slow down and increase the regeneration of cartilage.
With Hypnotherapy we also do pain management. Pain is a signal to the subconscious that something is wrong and needs to be attended to. With hypnosis we acknowledge that we are aware of the problem and are taking action. There is no need for a high level of pain anymore, minimising the pain.
As stress has a huge impact on any form of arthritis, hypnotherapy will help you reduce your stress level and manage
it in a positive way. We boost your immune system making you healthier. We will also help you get your confidence
back and help you enjoy being a part of life again.
With hypnotherapy, you give yourself a much higher chance of controlling and minimising your arthritis.
