Chiropractic care is a natural solution to relieve and manage arthritis pain. Dr. Susan Myshka at Myshka Chiropractic in Jonesboro can provide you with a safe, non-invasive, non-addictive alternative to prescription medications or over-the-counter pain medications, which are commonly prescribed to patients for arthritis pain relief. Dr. Myshka can perform effective chiropractic adjustments to ease inflammation and treat the cause of joint pain.
What is Arthritis?
Arthritis is inflammation of one or more joints, which can cause pain, discomfort, and stiffness throughout joints and the body. Bones misaligned in the back, hips, hands, and wrist will cause arthritis. This is why chiropractic care is so effective because we align the bones. Common symptoms of arthritis include swelling, joint pain and stiffness, and decreased range of motion. It typically worsens with age. There are over 100 different types and severities; however, there are two main types of arthritis that can benefit from routine chiropractic care:
- Osteoarthritis – refers to wear and tear in the joints due to injury, misaligned bones, overuse, or normal aging
- Rheumatoid Arthritis – when there is a problem with immune system function, causing joint inflammation
What is the Best Pain Relief for Arthritis?
Your nervous system works best when the bones in your spine are aligned correctly, to benefit not just your muscles and joints, but all the systems of the body. If you have neck pain, shoulder pain, low back pain, or hand and wrist pain due to osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, chiropractic adjustments are one of the safest therapies you can have.
Unlike other treatments, such as opioids, Dr. Susan Myshka utilizes the Gonstead chiropractic adjustment in Jonesboro, which moves the misaligned bones that are causing inflammation in the joints, thus resulting in a reduction in arthritis pain.
How a Jonesboro Chiropractor Can Help With Arthritis
The goal for Dr. Myshka is to move your spine, hands, and wrists closer to their home position. When the bones are at or close to the home position, inflammation reduces. Cold laser therapy also helps reduce inflammation and is a quick, non-invasive treatment that is completely painless.
Additionally, we may recommend a change in diet; for example, if you have a high-sugar diet or drink high-sugar drinks daily, they could be causing arthritis joints to swell. Eliminating high-sugar drinks, such as sodas and beer, and other sugary foods can have a dramatic effect on the reduction of inflammation in the body.
Some of the benefits of chiropractic care for arthritis include:
- Reduced pain and discomfort
- Decreased inflammation
- Improved range of motion
- Improved flexibility
- Increased activity and lifestyle
