The Center for Disease Control reports about 1 in 4 adults suffer from different types of arthritis pain and roughly 15 million people in the United States are living with severe joint issues. Treatment is often paired with medication, and while effective at masking your pain, prescriptions will not address the root cause of your joint discomfort.
Safe, Natural Care
Your body’s joints are the hinge points between the bones. They also provide support, and when healthy, allow you to move painlessly and freely. Any damage to the joint surface, whether from overuse, injury, or disease can interfere with this natural movement and cause you to experience chronic pain and joint discomfort.
Joint pain can occur from the following common conditions:
- Autoimmune Reactions
- Fallen Arches in Your Feet
- Food Sensitivities
- Imbalanced / Poor Posture
- Joint Trauma/Injury
- Ligament Sprains
- Muscular Fascial Restrictions
- Muscular Imbalances
- Muscle Strains
- Muscular Trigger Points
- Nutrient Deficiencies
- Repetitive Joint Microtrauma
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
The level of pain can range from irritating to debilitating. The pain can be either acute (short term) or chronic (long term) in length. Joint pain and stiffness, with the loss of mobility, can affect your quality of life and make simple tasks, such as walking, standing, going up or down steps, getting in or out of the car, gripping a pen, opening a door, clasping a cup, or putting on clothing, painful and difficult.
No matter the cause or length of time you have experienced pain, seeking treatment from an experienced and knowledgeable doctor, like Dr. Sevlie, can help you find the relief you deserve, so you can begin functioning normally again!
How to Identify Knee Problems
A popular approach to treating acute knee pain is using anti-inflammatory medications.
For chronic knee conditions, traditional medical treatment may include an epidural steroid injection. While this treatment can temporarily relieve pain and reduce inflammation, there are numerous side effects, which can include:
- Rapid Degeneration of Cartilage
- Cataracts of the Eyes
- High Blood Pressure
- Increased Risk of Bone Fractures
- Stomach Ulcer
If your discomfort persists, traditional medicine may recommend knee replacement surgery. Though very common, this complex procedure can lead to painful or lengthy recovery times with potentially serious long term side effects. And, unfortunately, surgery does not address the underlying cause of why your knee joint and knee cartilage are deteriorating.
Our clinic is committed to treating your knee problems or conditions safely and naturally, without the use of potentially harmful invasive procedures, medication, injections, or surgery. Our treatments are targeted and designed to rebalance the muscle structure and function of your knee joint and give your body the proper nutritional support and activation to stimulate your cells to grow and repair so that proper healing can occur.
We use a combination of the following techniques:
These treatments, herbs, nutrients, and therapies work synergistically to stimulate stem cells and activate repair of damaged cells and tissues of the body. We offer a natural solution for pain relief, true healing, and restoration of function to people with injuries to the cartilage, muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, and nervous system.
Our natural Revitalizing Medicine Therapy Program is specifically designed to nourish and detoxify the entire body, thus reducing painful excess inflammation.

Solutions For Healing And Recovery
Acupuncture is a system of natural and complementary medicine that involves the insertion of fine, sterile, single-use needles into acupoints on your body or your ear. These acupoints are functional spots along electromagnetic pathways called meridians, which cover the surface of your body on your skin. The acupoints connect to your internal organs through the electromagnetic meridian pathways.
Likewise, ear acupoints are functional spots on the front and back of the ear that also connect to your internal organs and can be gently stimulated. What is unique at the Center for Natural HealthCare, PLLC, is that we can stimulate acupoints in a variety of ways. For individuals who don’t like needles, other options are available, such as the application of small painless magnets on the ear or body acupoint; the application of heat energy, known as moxabustion on body acupoints; and painless, noninvasive, laser light stimulation and electrical stimulation on obstructed acupoints. All non-invasive forms of acupoint stimulation are very effective and painless.
The intended effect of an acupuncture treatment is to restore balance to the body by removing energy obstructions from the meridians thereby activating the body’s own defense, repair, and healing mechanisms.
Treatment to an acupoint also stimulates sensory nerves that cause the pituitary and midbrain to release endorphins that function to relieve pain, accelerate healing, and restore health. A normal acupuncture session involves the treatment of 5-15 acupoints with needles remaining in the body for 15-20 minutes. If magnets are used, the patient wears them home to rebalance their meridians for 3 to 10 days. This method provides a longer and more sustained treatment that relieves pain and rebalances and supports recovery and optimal health.
