Holistic treatment for Osteomyelitis and Septic Arthritis

Specializing in Pediatric Orthopaedic Treatments

Osteomyelitits is a bone infection that is brought on by bacteria or fungus. The soft tissue in your bones; the bone marrow becomes painfully swollen as a result. Without treatment, the swelling brought on by this infection may stop the blood flow to your bone, which could result in bone death.

When an infection spreads to one or more of your joints and causes inflammation, it results in septic arthritis (or infectious arthritis). The inflammation is in the surface of the cartilage (a type of connective tissue) that lines your joints and the synovial fluid that lubricates your joints.

Bone infections can take a long time to help. The infection may clear up faster if you start treatment as soon as you first notice your symptoms.

Some of the symptoms for Osteomyelitis and Septic Arthritis are:

  • Osteomyelitis
  • Fever
  • Irritability or lethargy
  • Limited, painful appetite
  • Lower back pain
