Is There Any Relief from Arthritis?
Do you awaken in pain and find yourself moving in slow motion the first hour or two of each day? Has your work capacity decreased due to the pain that occurs the day following any activity? Are you limiting making personal plans due to your ability to get around? Are you looking for relief from arthritis?
Arthritis can shut down your life, leading to depression, fatigue, even anger. When your body freezes up and won’t perform, it is an upsetting event.
There are several types of arthritis, and rheumatoid and osteoarthritis are the most common forms.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder which causes the body to start attacking itself. Joints become inflamed and damaged leading to red swollen, painful joints that can deform severely over time. People with rheumatoid arthritis should be treated by a capable rheumatologist as well as receive targeted nutritional support that will help the immune system heal. We offer a non-invasive method, Nutrition Deficiency Testing (NDT), where we can quickly see which nutrients you require for optimum health as well as how much is required.
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. Grating in the joints, crackling, aching, stiffness, small lumps at the joints of the fingers and decreased mobility are all symptoms. Osteoarthritis usually develops after trauma. It can be one large trauma or several micro-traumas over a long period of time.
Arthritis of the spine is frequently caused by misalignments of the vertebrae which create uneven wear and tear on the spinal joints. The joints wear out and calcium deposits enter the area, attempting to fuse them together. You end up sore and stiff with less mobility.
Relief from arthritis can often be achieved through a combination of proper nutrition, exercise, and improved joint function. Many common oils will decrease pain and inflammation. The right kinds and amount of exercise will improve blood flow to arthritic areas and decrease stiffness. Improving joint function through Chiropractic manipulation will slow the laying down of calcium deposits.
Chiropractic care combined with exercise and nutritional changes may give you the “new lease on life” that you are looking for. Call our office for an appointment or to schedule Nutrition Deficiency Testing.
