Chronic Inflammation Treatment in London
Chronic inflammation is a root cause of many conditions.
According to the British Pain Society, around 40% of the UK population – 28 million people – are living with chronic pain, which is defined as pain that has been present for three months or more.
That’s an awful lot of people, most of whom are probably taking medication that masks the problem but doesn’t actually deal with the root cause.
As we age, it becomes more difficult to move without feeling a twinge or two. Whether it’s getting in and out of bed, moving after a long period of sitting in one place or simply an ache that just won’t quit, it’s easy to put it down to advancing years or mild age-related arthritis.
Just as a car develops unsettling creaks and groans as the odometer continues to turn, so our bodies start to complain as we put up miles on life’s clock.
But while age certainly plays its part in the pain we experience – most low-grade chronic inflammation can be attributed to this – the reality is that in many cases people are living with pain unnecessarily.
Chronic inflammation is a root cause of many conditions, including:
- Metabolic syndrome – this affects around a quarter of people in the UK and is the name given to the group of health problems that specifically place you at a higher risk of heart and cardiovascular issues.
- Type 2 diabetes
- Cardiovascular disease
Typically, chronic inflammation is caused by gut issues, stress, lack of exercise, poor nutrition, toxins and pollutants, among other things.
At 360 Health Clinic, our specialist London-based private GP service is an expert in investigating reversible causes of chronic low-grade inflammation and designing treatments plan to address them.
We use a functional medicine approach to work with you to identify the root cause of the chronic inflammation that is causing the chronic pain you’re experiencing.
While this approach is highly effective in dealing with the symptoms that manifest in instances of chronic inflammation, making better lifestyle choices has the additional benefit of improving your general health.
And there’s even better news if you have a family because the changes you make to your lifestyle are also likely to be adopted by those around you, meaning they will also experience better health outcomes.
