Easing the Pain and Pressure on Joints

Arthritis is a general term that refers to any inflammation of the joints. It’s known for the chronic pain it causes throughout the body. This range of conditions includes many specific types of joint inflammation, including osteoarthritis (OA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), gout, and ankylosing spondylitis (AS). Each condition has its own unique cause and approach to care.

Common signs and symptoms include chronic pain, swelling in the joints, muscle stiffness, and a diminished range of motion. You may experience pain in the shoulder, hip, knee, neck, or any other joint. Patients with degenerative joint disorder often experience stiff muscles in the morning that loosen up and feel better as they begin moving around.

Common Types of Joint Inflammation

Our doctors most commonly see patients with osteoarthritis, or degenerative joint disease. We all experience wear and tear that builds up as we age. Injuries from sports, accidents, and daily activities gradually wear away at our joints. Friction then develops on the surface of the cartilage, leading to inflammation. This condition frequently occurs in both men and women, especially as they age.

Another common condition is rheumatoid arthritis. This autoimmune disorder occurs when the immune system begins attacking the joints, resulting in inflammation. Over time, the joints begin to degenerate, causing significant pain and dysfunction. RA mostly affects females and tends to be most severe in the hands.

Since RA is an autoimmune disorder, it’s important to receive treatment from a rheumatologist for appropriate care. If you’re not sure whether you have RA or are experiencing pain from another condition, we can do a thorough assessment and examination to tell you what we’re seeing and refer you in the right direction.

What to Expect

During your first visit, we’ll visually look over your affected joints and check your range of motion. We may refer you for X-rays to check for any degeneration in the joints and determine which type of arthritis you’re experiencing. If you’re suffering from osteoarthritis due to a fixated joint, wear and tear, or misaligned joints, we’ll build you a customized plan of care.

Our team of highly skilled chiropractors will work to increase your range of motion and strengthen the joints, reducing any pressure, inflammation, and pain. We combine precise adjustments with additional techniques like massage therapy, acupuncture, or physical therapy as needed, so you can achieve peak healing.

Maximizing Your Experience of Life

Unfortunately, this condition is not reversible. There’s still a lot you can do to improve your quality of life and decrease the severity of symptoms, however. Regular chiropractic care can slow down the process of degeneration, keeping you active and comfortable.

We work as a team with other health care providers to help you get the best results possible. Recovery doesn’t end when you walk out the door. We’ll educate and equip you with nutritional tips and personalized exercises to decrease inflammation and get you on the fast track to healing.
