Personalized Chiropractic Care For ArthritisArthritis is not a medical issue that can be easily defined. There are many types of arthritis, and each of them requires the kind of depth of understanding and treatment plans offered by a team like Caron Chiropractic. Just as there is not one single type of arthritis, there is no single type of individual who experiences the pain, discomfort, and too often the debilitation that comes with arthritis. We can help you manage your arthritis pain and will develop a personalized treatment plan that works for you.

Understanding Your Arthritis Diagnosis

In general terms arthritis can be described as a disease that occurs in the joints. Whether brought on by previous trauma or injury, or by the aging process, arthritis limits mobility and, if it goes untreated, your quality of life. For a long time, the medical community limited its definition of arthritis as a kind of joint inflammation that was caused by an injury to and later the degradation of cartilage in the affected joint. In recent years, though, the medical community now understands that arthritis affects not just the cartilage but all mechanisms in the affected joint.

Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis, but it is important to understand that it is not just a joint disease that affects elderly people. People who have been athletes and have suffered injuries often find themselves with symptoms of arthritis at relatively young ages. Many of them will allow themselves to ignore the signs of oncoming arthritis or they will consider it to be just one of the unfortunate outcomes of playing the games they love. Arthritis may be inevitable for a variety of reasons, but the negative impacts it can have on our lives do not need to be considered inevitable. Caron Chiropractic can help restore quality of life in a number of ways.

Chiropractic Care For Arthritis Pain Relief

Regular massage therapy is one of the most effective means of treating, and relieving the discomfort of, arthritis. Because arthritis is characterized by the presence of inflammation in the joints that are affected, it is important to reduce or eliminate that inflammation. The act of massaging tissue causes the breakup of lactic acid, which in turn stimulates the body’s immune system. A more active immune system is a natural defense against inflammation.

Too many people live with pain because of the onset of arthritis. Caron Chiropractic seeks to reduce or eliminate pain in spite of arthritis. Our treatments for arthritis are perhaps most because they treat the pain, instead of simply masking it with medications.
