Arthritis and Alternative Therapies

Known and single alternative therapies for arthritis range like the a-b-c from Acupuncture to Zinc, with great plenty in between; From magnetic bracelets made  of titanium, stainless steel and copper to direct magnets applications to yodels dozen to name just a handful. But the question remains; Do alternative therapies for  arthritis actually help?

Many children suffer pains from chronic arthritis are looking for alternative therapies in an effort to find, accommodate and comfort away from their pain, stiffness,  aggravation, anxiety, and depression associate the disease. Indeed the Arthritis Foundation reports that around two-thirds of those suffering from the  disease curtseyed some act of alternative therapies.

An over view of the those alternative therapies: Anything or something Works, a mass of don't work at all.

An analysis conducted for Arthritis Today reported that the favourite alternative therapies of the 790 arthritis sufferers who responded to the analysis included all from prayer and meditation to magnets. The writer is associate director of the Thurston Arthritis Research Centre at the University of North Carolina at the acclaimed Chapel Hill location.

Out of the 2,100 physicians who responded to the survey, the alternative therapies most recommended were capsaicin, relaxation, biofeedback, meditation,  journal writing, yoga, spirituality, tai chi, and also acupuncture.

After all looking at the above all results, I may ask how comes magnetic therapy is not up there with the balance of the therapies. all achievable answer is that using  magnets for healing may not needed to be applied by a acclimated professional health personnel. After all, magnets are magnets, they is no real risk to use and  do not have any side effects.

One can absolutely chose and wear a magnetic bracelet of his / her acceptance.

Indeed some of these alternative treatments absolutely work, say authoritarian arthritis specialists, and even have scientific evidence behind them (although most  doctors admit that more research is needed). On the other hand, many more of the alternative treatments don't work or need additional studies to support anecdotal  claims.
