Between 40 to 50 million people are suffering from arthritis-induced pain and mobility issues! People suffering from arthritis are unable to perform their routine tasks and find it difficult in making body movements. Oftentimes, people with arthritic pain will resort to popping pills for some relief. While pills may mask the pain temporarily, eventually the pain will come back! Some people think, “Well, there’s no cure for this, so I guess I just have to suffer.” That’s not true. There is hope for natural relief; Chiropractors are qualified and trained to understand the root cause of arthritic pain. They can customize the right chiropractic treatment for you.
Chiropractors help treat arthritis symptoms such as muscle stiffness, swelling, pain in the joints, and inflammation. Can chiropractors provide treatment for all types of arthritis? Yes, certainly! Chiropractors have the skills and have received the proper training to provide the right, effective treatment for all types of arthritic pain(s).
Did you know that chiropractors have successfully helped people deal with their osteoarthritis, which is considered one of the most common types of arthritis?
So how are chiropractors effective in providing treatment for different types of arthritis?
#1 Chiropractic Manipulation For Pain Relief:
Chiropractic techniques (such as spinal manipulation) are used to overcome all the misalignments in the spine and help reduce pain and inflammation from affected nerves. Once pain has reduced, the patient can feel much better. Chiropractic manipulation helps the nerves work well, sending out the right signals to the brain. With chiropractic manipulation, the large muscles and supporting ligaments get relief from pain and gradually regain strength.
#2 Chiropractic Hot/Cold Therapy:
With the help of hot and cold packs, chiropractors aim to reduce muscle tension that causes immense pressure on affected muscles. The cold pack, in particular, is used for reducing inflammation.
#3 Chiropractic Treatment Helps Increase The Flexibility Of The Muscles:
By reducing tension and pain, chiropractors help patients experience an increase in flexibility in their muscles.
After providing the appropriate treatment, chiropractors might suggest some exercises that will help in keeping various body parts healthy, such that pain doesn’t come back! They might also show patients a nutritional chart, which offers guidance for a healthy diet. By exercising and eating healthier, muscles can be strengthened and a person can gain better control over their body.
If you or someone you know suffers from arthritic pain, it can make everyday life much more challenging. It can hurt just to move the body! That said, chiropractors can provide treatments for different types of arthritis. They do this without the use of any medicines or surgery.
