Arthritis is a condition that eats away at the cartilage in the joint spaces. This can therefore, cause disruption to the mobility of the joint.

How can chiropractic care treat Arthritis in Woodbury MN?

Chiropractic care helps the joints in your body become more mobile. Chiropractic care is based on the natural healing process in the body. Once the joints in the body can move freely, the interference between the brain and the body is removed; therefore, allowing the body to heal optimally. Chiropractic care is the most beneficial and safe forms of treatment for Arthritis. Along with the adjustments, your chiropractor will also recommend life style changes such as: diet suggestions and exercise to also increase the body's ability to move freely. Chiropractic care is a preventative form of treatment to prolong any arthritis; however, if arthritis is already formed in the body, chiropractic adjustments can help diminish pain in the joints directly.

Another form of treatment the chiropractor may suggest is massage therapy. Massage and chiropractic combined may help ease the stiffness and promote better motion in the body. Heat and cold compresses may also serve as a temporary ease of pain. When a chiropractic adjustment is preformed it is believed to stimulate the chemical what we call "Endorphins" in the body. This chemical will then block the nerve fibers that are responsible for the pain that people suffer from. For this reason, that is also why exercise is encouraged because with proper amount of exercise that will also release endorphins into the body.

In general, there are 46 million Americans who suffer from arthristis. Arthritis is the most common cause of disability in the United States alone. Annual hospitalizations due to arthritis number close to 1,000,000 with 35 million outpatient visits due to arthritis. Though most commonly affecting women and older adults, nearly two-thirds of those afflicted are under 65 years of age. There may also be other complicating factors other than arthritis such as heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, etc. These other health factors must be addressed, but also can be helped with chiropractic care. Unfortunately there can be complications from arthritis that account for many deaths annually this can be due to the use of over-the-counter medications and prescriptions. Seeing a chiropractor versus the use of OCP's and NSAIDS can significantly reduce the horrible side-effects from those drugs. Chiropractic care is a non-invasive form of treatment that helps promote proper body movement and maintaining physical health.

If you didn't notice my subtle hint, chiropractic care is the cheapest route in the long run. It will safely put your body in the proper alignment by stimulating the body's natural process to heal itself and it will save you from going to hospitals in the future.
