El Paso TX. Chiropractor Dr. Alex Jimenez looks at how chiropractic treatment can help with joint inflammation.
If you are one of the millions of Americans with arthritis, you don’t have to suffer from painful joint inflammation.
Joint swelling is common in different types of arthritis, but arthritis can be managed with chiropractic care.
Arthritis was once considered a common part of the aging process and a signal that it’s time to slow down. However, according to the American Chiropractic Association, recent research and clinical findings show that there is much more to life for arthritis patients than the traditional recommendation of bed rest and medications.
The physical medicine of chiropractic adjustments which help restore the injured tissue strength and elasticity while decreasing the nerve sensitivity. With movement and function restored, excess pressure is not forced onto the joints.
According to Dr. Mike DeCubellis, owner and director of Main Street Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Downers Grove, the most effective therapies to relieve the pain and stiffness of osteoarthritis of the spine is massage therapy, electrical muscle stimulation therapy and ultrasound.
“The goal for each of the therapies is to reduce the pain and inflammation, relax the muscles tension associated with arthritis and increase the joint motion,” DeCubellis said.
Arthritis cannot be cured, but treatment from a chiropractor can prevent the damage created by the arthritis.
If a joint is out of alignment and not functioning properly, the surfaces will begin to make contact. That grinding causes inflammation, which leads to arthritis and – if left untreated – joint damage.
Your chiropractor can help you develop an exercise program that will help restore range of motion and improve flexibility and increase strength.
