Joint pain is often experienced as chronic pain by individuals. Chronic pain has been found to affect between 30%-50% of the world population, with over 3 million Australians currently living with chronic pain, at a cost of over $73 billion to the economy each year.
For those experiencing chronic or acute joint pain, it can be difficult to go about the demands of everyday life as a result of the impacts of these pains. Seeking treatment may be necessary to manage physical, emotional and mental health outcomes and to assist those struggling with joint pain to lead a healthy, productive and satisfying life.
With that in mind, it’s no wonder so many pain relief solutions are available on the market. One emerging natural pain treatment tool is found in cannabis oil, which is an area of medical and scientific exploration for its potential to treat chronic pain and a wide range of pain occurring from diseases, illnesses and ailments.
The pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties that cannabis oil has been found to have in a number of studies means it may provide joint pain relief for those suffering from ongoing joint pain. Studies are ongoing as to how cannabis oil may provide relief to diseases such as inflammatory arthritis, and doctors throughout Australia are able to prescribe cannabis oil as a potential treatment for pain control and for joint pain relief. If you’re interested in exploring how cannabis oil may provide strong pain relief and other positive health impacts, discuss this with your doctor today.
