At Lower Cape Chiropractic in Orleans, MA, we treat a wide range of conditions including back pain, neck pain, joint pain, chronic pain, headaches, and much more. One of the most significant challenges for many people we work with is arthritis. Arthritis is generally associated with joint pain and stiffness. Arthritis can be debilitating in extreme cases, but the good news is that quality chiropractic care can help.
What to Expect From Chiropractic Care
The advantage of chiropractic treatment is the fact that it works with the body's natural capacity for healing and self-repair. It attempts to mitigate conditions or disease processes that are getting in the way of natural healing functions.
For this reason, chiropractic care can help reduce or limit the amount or number of chemical painkillers or more invasive treatments that a patient may otherwise need. The principle is simple. If a joint or structure is not in its natural, optimal condition, then it cannot function or self-repair as it should.
The body as a whole will be pushing for the repair of the locus of damage, but if it cannot get nutrients to the affected area, little will change. Chiropractic care is designed to address this.
Is Chiropractic Care a Safe Treatment for Arthritis?
Chiropractic care may be the best treatment for arthritis. But as long as the body has the potential to heal the affected area, chiropractic treatment can help. Today's chiropractic specialists have more tools available at their disposal than ever before. Tools like ultrasound, electrotherapy, cold laser, infrared sauna, and more.
All of these non-invasive to minimally invasive techniques, in addition to traditional chiropractic care, stimulate circulation, disrupt disease processes, and accelerate healing. When the patient responds optimally to such treatment, often the need for risky interventions and drugs is minimized.
