Arthritis Treatment in San Jose

Whether you have Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) or Arthritis from overusing your joints, MASJ can help.

Can you cure Arthritis?

Arthritis cannot be cured but MASJ can eliminate your symptoms and stop it from getting worse using a noninvasive technique. Your muscle’s primary responsibility is to prevent your bones from touching. If you suffer from Arthritis, then improving the muscle’s basic function of stabilizing your bones and joints can help bring relief.

How do you relieve Arthritis?

The first steps to relieving pain in the hands are to improve stability in the joints by improving the communication from the brain to the muscle. MASJ does this with a noninvasive technique called Muscle Activation Techniques. MAT assesses and treats muscles that cannot communicate properly. Once communication improves, the second step is a strength training program. The program is designed to increase tolerance of the muscle and your body’s ability to manage the symptoms.

If your arthritis is caused by overuse, stress or trauma; MASJ can help. Contact us for a consultation.

Because of stress, trauma or overuse, your body tries to compensate or create shortcuts to get into the positions or movements you use most. These compensations over time create muscular imbalances, and over time these muscular imbalances begin to compress joints causing wear and arthritis.

By correcting the muscular imbalances and compensations the body will no longer be compressing joints causing the symptoms to disappear. However, if you overuse the weak muscles then the compensation will come back causing the symptoms to return. To prevent this, follow a micro-progressive strength program to increase the muscle tissue stress tolerance and increase your body’s endurance.
