Is chiropractic care a safe and effective treatment for arthritis?
By working with our chiropractor, you can benefit from the wide knowledge base. When you first visit us, our chiropractor will perform a full evaluation to determine the types of arthritis that you have and if the condition contributes to your symptoms. Since arthritis affects body joints and tissues, our chiropractor is uniquely trained to offer education, diagnosis, insight, and treatment for this painful and widespread condition.
One of the main reasons why we offer chiropractic care is that it is 100 percent safe for patients suffering from arthritis and it can help to reduce pain levels, restore a significant percent of mobility, and minimize the associated swelling. Since chiropractic is a natural treatment that does not depend on any drugs, you will not worry about the risk of side effects.
Chiropractic Treatment Modalities Used to Treat Arthritis
As each patient is a unique individual, our chiropractor provides many different treatment modalities.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy uses non-invasive laser light targeted at painful areas and provides relief from pain and other symptoms through a process known as photobiomodulation.
Through the sound waves produced by ultrasound therapy, our chiropractor can massage your body's pain-filled joints, arthritic soft tissue, and aching parts. As a result, you will experience a significant reduction in swelling, associated pain, and stiffness.
This is an advanced pain relief technique that we offer at our practice that will enable us to relieve many of your painful symptoms. Through this technique, you will be able to receive an enhanced circulation to pained areas and minimized arthritis symptoms.
Electrical muscle stimulation is a type of chiropractic therapy that we can apply to the part of your body where you experience a lot of spasms and pain. A mild electrical current is applied to these areas to help in faster contraction and relaxation of stiffness within muscles.
When handling arthritic patients who have active swelling, our chiropractor will not perform spinal adjustment procedures. Instead, our chiropractor concentrates on treating the surrounding areas to relieve pain and restore a range of motion in the related parts of the body.
Also, patients who have rheumatoid arthritis in their knees tend to suffer from lower back discomfort. In this case, our chiropractor will effectively treat the lower using chiropractic techniques such as massage, chiropractic exercises, and nutritional adjustment recommendations that help in the recurrence of the condition.
