Why Choose Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care provides an alternative to traditional medicine. Chiropractic care seeks to get to the root of your pain issues and address that root with a treatment plan which will help the body heal. Traditional medicine often only deals with symptoms that are manifesting. Traditional medicine will often treat pain issues with pain medication. This does nothing to get to the root cause of a problem and it does nothing to help your body heal naturally.
Even chronic issues, such as arthritis, can benefit from chiropractic treatment. Finding natural, drug-free ways to manage chronic pain is essential to your long-term health and wellness.
What Is Arthritis?
Arthritis is a general term that can include a number of disorders. Arthritis is primarily thought of as any inflammation of the joints which causes pain or decreases mobility. It is one of the most common causes of pain in older people. Arthritis often develops as people get older, but for some people, this can be a genetic problem that develops at any age.
Arthritis results in ongoing pain issues. Traditional medicine often treats this issue with harsh pain killers. These medications have negative side effects and also have addictive properties. For this reason, many people suffering from arthritis have sought out alternative treatment methods.
Can a Chiropractor Help?
There are many different types of arthritis. Chiropractic care can help with two main types:
Rheumatoid Arthritis: This is a disorder that manifests as chronic inflammation of the joints.
Osteoarthritis: This is a degenerative disorder that affects the cartilage that cushions joints. Cartilage is a soft, gel-like material present in joints. This substance keeps joints lubricated and allows them to move freely. When this cartilage is in low supply, the joint will experience pain.
These two types of arthritis can benefit greatly from self-care combined with chiropractic care. Chiropractic care provides a safe, non-invasive, non-addictive method of pain management.
How Will My Pain Be Treated?
Chiropractic adjustments will reduce inflammation in the joints and increase blood and oxygen flow. This can reduce pain and increase mobility. Once you have started adjustments, our doctor will evaluate your pain levels to determine if other forms of treatment can be incorporated as well.
