Various methods of treatment of osteoarthrosis in the traditional medicine does not act on the main cause of the disease and therefore do not lead to a positive effect. Unfortunately, the medicines treatment – is the most inefficient. Cartilage restoration to its original state by pharmacological preparations is virtually impossible, they have only a local effect. Injection of hormone preparations relieves the pain for a while, but this painful procedure is not restore the body’s ability to produce joint fluid, the methods of physiotherapy provide relief in the early stages of osteoarthrosis. The osteoarthrosis without appropriate treatment has serious consequences: pains are very intense; joints are pinched and excluded completely from circulation. There is developed the joints deformation, forming the “nodules”, the muscular tissue become inflamed around the affected joint. The disease usually begins in one joint, and gradually takes over almost all joints.“The causes and conditions of the disease are due to the alimentation and lifestyle,” that is said in the Orient and so treatment is aimed to restoring the harmonious relations of the energy in the body, but not to remove the external symptoms.

Only a doctor determines which type of heating is the best for the patient. In the case of heating the body surface in the plan of biological active point is applied a ginger or garlic plate by which is made the heating.Stone therapy – one of the oldest methods of influence on Mucus – hot stones therapy, which has been used successfully in the complex treatment, and preferably is carried after acupuncture and acupressure.Vacuum massage activates the processes of circulation of blood and lymph of tissues, there is an alternative expansion and contraction of blood vessels that is kind of cardiovascular exercises.
