Chronic inflammation in the body can cause pressure on the joints and organs. Sometimes, the inflammation causes chronic pain, drastically impacting a person’s quality of life. We provide chiropractic care for inflammation and use nutrition response testing to develop a plan to reduce inflammation and treat the pain. Our chiropractor at Carter Natural Health Center in Hendersonville provides chronic inflammation treatment and helps patients make lifestyle changes to reduce the effects of inflammation.
What Is Inflammation?
Inflammation is the body’s way of indicating that something is wrong and protects the body against illness, infection, and injury. When the body detects a harmful disease, infection, or injury, it triggers the body’s response system, causing a higher production of white blood cells, cytokines, and immune cells to fight off bacteria and pathogens. In most cases, patients experience inflammation that causes redness and swelling but it can also be internal, which causes discomfort.
Symptoms of Chronic Inflammation
Inflammation symptoms vary by person and the root cause of the illness, infection, or injury. Common symptoms of chronic inflammation include fatigue, redness, swollen joints, joint pain, high blood pressure, abdominal pain, and chest pain. Other symptoms of inflammation may include fever, rash, stiffness, irritable bowel, and weight gain. It is best to speak with your physician or chiropractor to diagnose the root cause of the inflammation and provide a comprehensive treatment plan.
How a Chiropractor Helps with Chronic Inflammation
A chiropractor realigns the spine, which can help reduce pressure on the nerves that trigger the body’s biomechanics that triggers inflammation. When the spine is aligned correctly, it encourages the body to stop producing neuropeptides, which often cause inflammation. If pain is associated with inflammation, we may also use massage therapy, physical therapy, or acupuncture to treat the symptoms. We provide a holistic treatment plan that is non-invasive and non-addictive. Chiropractic care treats the root cause of the symptoms and does not mask them with possibly addictive medications.
