Arthritis Q & A

Whole Body Healthcare

What is arthritis?

Arthritis is the inflammation of the bodies’ joints.  Arthritis causes discomfort, aches, pain,lesser range of motion, and stiffness in the joints that worsens as you age. The nurse practitioners and chiropractors and rehab staff at Whole Body Healthcare believe that sound bone and joint structure is key to helping your body function at the optimal level, so seeking treatment for arthritis is vital.  

 

Are there multiple types of arthritis?   

Interestingly, arthritis isn’t just one specific disease or condition. In fact, there are many types of arthritis, from acute to severe, that affect more than 50 million Americans each year.  However, the two most common types of arthritis benefit from chiropractic care at Whole Body Healthcare are:

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis - A persistent inflammatory disorder in joints
  • Osteoarthritis - A progressive disorder plaguing flexible joint
    cartilage

 

If you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis, your treatment plan always should start as a non-invasive, non-drug conservative treatment to get you back to living pain-free.

 

How can chiropractic care help to treat arthritis?

Chiropractic care from the experts at Whole Body Healthcare controls and relieves pain caused by arthritic joints. Unlike addictive drugs or surgical treatment, routine chiropractic care is a safe, non-invasive, non-addictive, and effective way to manage arthritic joint pain.    

Your chiropractor adjusts your back, hands, and body joints to foster proper alignment and reduce joint constraints. During your appointment, your doctor gently manipulates your soft tissue and tendons in a precise treatment method to relieve pain and stop muscle spasms.

Stretching, diet, and exercise also may be recommended to help you feel better.

 

What happens after my chiropractic appointment?

After your appointment, expect to have improved function and less inflammation.  As you seek optimal care for your body, you notice that you heal significantly faster, experience less pain, have increased range of motion, and return to your favorite activities.  Typically, treatment for arthritis requires multiple chiropractic appointments and with time, joint pain decreases.
