Ortho Molecular: Joint Support

This protocol was developed for practitioners using Fullscript in Canada and the templates cannot be applied to accounts operating outside of Canada.

Protocol development in integrative medicine is not typically a simple process. Individuals require individualized care, and what works for one patient may not work for another.

As a result, the Fullscript Integrative Medical Advisory team advises using an evidence-informed approach to protocol development. To simplify this process for practitioners, we have assembled a sampling of evidence-based standardized protocols that practitioners can use as a foundation when developing individualized protocols.

To establish these protocols, we first developed a Rating Scale that could be used to discern the rigor of evidence supporting a specific nutrient’s therapeutic effect.

The following protocols were developed using only A through D-quality evidence. These are categorized as follows:

A       Systematic review or meta-analysis
B       Randomized Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled (RDBPC)       2+ studies and/or 1 study with 50 + subjects 

C       Randomized Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled (RDBPC)       1 study 

Please refer to the complete Rating Scale for further information.


The Fullscript Integrative Medical Advisory team has developed or collected these protocols from practitioners and supplier partners to help health care practitioners make decisions when building treatment plans. By adding this protocol to your Fullscript template library, you understand and accept that the recommendations in the protocol are for initial guidance and may not be appropriate for every patient.
