Wayne Chiropractic Clinics Help Joint Inflammation

Chiropractic Care for Joint Inflammation

The human body has several different types of joints, including ball and socket joints, gliding joints, hinge joints, and saddle joints. Considering the complex mechanisms that go into to making it all work together, it’s little wonder that joint pain is a big issue in society. Wayne chiropractors treat cases relating to joint pain on a regular basis, and the primary cause is inflammation.

What Is Joint Inflammation?

Inflammation is a normal body reaction that’s part of the immune response. Sometimes when there is an injury, your body benefits from the subsequent inflammation because it aids in the healing process. However, there are times when existing inflammation creates more inflammation, which is not a good situation.

Arthritis is the most common form of joint inflammation and most people know someone that has it. The two main types of arthritis are known as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis refers to wear and tear in the joints due to injury, overuse, or normal aging. Rheumatoid arthritis happens when there is a problem with immune system function, causing joint inflammation.

Foods that Cause Joint Inflammation

There are certain foods that tend to trigger joint inflammation for many patients. If you suffer from joint inflammation, you may be instructed to limit some foods. Some of the main culprits include processed sugars, trans fats, refined flour, MSG, gluten, and alcohol.  Certain eating plans have shown positive results when it comes to reducing inflammation.

Chiropractic Care for Inflammation

Our chiropractic team at Chiropractic Spine Center regularly uses joint adjustments to ease inflammation and treat the cause of joint pain. Since every patient is different, and every situation is different, treatments are customized so they will have the greatest effect. Sometimes, ultrasound therapy or ice treatments will also be part of the overall treatment protocol.

Reducing pressure on your joints by strengthening the surrounding muscles is another tactic that can help with joint inflammation. Movement therapies like yoga, tai chi, or Pilates can help to strengthen and lengthen muscles at the same time. This will give the affected joints a break and will reduce pain and swelling caused by overuse. The most important step is to book a consultation so your chiropractor can assess the situation and come up with a suitable treatment plan and solution for your joint inflammation.

"After years of competitive sports, I thought that my knee pain was something I should expect. I could not have guessed that working with Dr. Glazer to align my back and hips could correct old injuries. Injuries that I assumed were par for the course. I only wish I had come to see him ten years sooner.."

Simona

"Within an hour of his adjustment I’m 90% free of symptoms, then within 3 hours they are gone completely. It is nothing short of amazing. I will continue to recommend Dr. Glazer to everyone I know."

Ann

"Dr. Ted is simply the best Chiropractor on the Mainline. I went to his office because I fell and couldn’t walk without a lot of pain. After the first treatment, I felt so much better. Now, about 3 weeks later, I am pain-free. Dr. Ted is so caring, gentle, and knowledgeable about all kinds of injuries."
