Living with arthritis can be very painful, indeed. At Dillon Chiropractic Office in Salinas, CA, Dr. Charles Dillon understands perfectly and with his highly experienced staff members, he can help you get lasting, holistic relief.
What to Expect From Chiropractic Care for Arthritis
If you are searching for a non-invasive way to relieve the arthritis pain in your joints, then a chiropractor is your best bet. Chiropractors bring all of your joints in alignment as they need to be to operate properly, and they don't prescribe potentially addictive pain pills. Arthritis literally means “swollen joint,” and describes the symptoms of many diseases. A chiropractor not only tries to relieve arthritis, but to address its root cause.
What Are Chiropractic Treatments for Arthritis?
Back or neck pain caused by osteoarthritis can be treated with adjustments. However, if your joints are swollen due to an autoimmune condition such as rheumatoid or psoriatic arthritis, or an injury, then other methods are used to get you relief.
Chiropractors can use ultrasound on soft tissues and painful joints to soothe your pain with a massaging effect from the sound waves. Most people think of ultrasounds as imaging tools, but they are very helpful to soothe arthritis, as well. This can reduce swelling and decrease your stiffness and pain significantly. Electrotherapy uses tiny electric pulses to stimulate your muscles and nerves to treat your soft tissue. Cold laser therapy is a laser light that penetrates deep into the tissues of your body to reduce inflammation.
Chiropractors can also prescribe a series of therapeutic exercises to target the area of arthritic joints in order to strengthen muscle support and increase your range of motion.
