What Is Arthritis?

As explained by the Mayo Clinic, arthritis is the inflammation of one or more of your joints. Usually, arthritis results in joint pain–which may be severe and immobilizing–and stiffness, both of which can worsen as a person ages.

There are two primary types of arthritis: rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. The first is an autoimmune disorder and osteoarthritis is a condition where the cartilage breaks down.

Treatment Options for Arthritis

There are numerous different treatment options for arthritis. For example, arthritis may be treated with:

  • Dietary changes (for rheumatoid arthritis);
  • Inflammation reduction;
  • Stress reduction;
  • Anti-inflammatory jobs;
  • Medications;
  • Surgery;
  • Exercise;
  • Heat and cold exposure;
  • Physical therapy;
  • Alternative medicine, like massage and acupuncture;
  • Chiropractic care.

The type of treatment option that is right for you may depend on numerous factors, such as the type of arthritis from which you suffer, your age, your health history, and more.

Why Can Chiropractic Care Be an Effective Treatment for Arthritis?

Chiropractic care, especially when combined with other treatment options like massage and physical therapy, can be an effective treatment for arthritis. The idea behind chiropractic care for arthritic pain is simple: a joint cannot function correctly if it is misaligned. By realigning the joint and maximizing its function, pain can be alleviated. In addition to just adjustments and realignment, chiropractic care may also include:

  • Ultrasound treatment;
  • Hot/cold treatment;
  • Physical therapy;
  • Massage;
  • Electrotherapy;
  • Low-level laser therapy; and
  • Infrared sauna therapy.

Is Seeing a Chiropractor for My Arthritis the Right Choice?

If you are suffering from arthritic pain, you may be wondering whether or not seeing a chiropractor is right for you. At Kouimanis Chiropractic, we believe in the connection between alignment and a person’s overall health and wellbeing. It may be time to see a chiropractor for treatment if you have been seeing a regular general practitioner or specialist and other treatment options have failed, you have had consistent pain for more than a month’s time, or you are looking for a non-invasive way to treat your pain (no prescription medications, surgeries, etc.).
