Whether you think you may have arthritis or you know you do, it is not something you need to tolerate any longer. Many people think this painful condition is just a normal part of aging. The treatments offered at our clinic are safe, all-natural, and highly effective at relieving the pain caused by arthritis. The doctors at our medical clinic will help you get back to living life to the fullest.
Arthritis Pain Relief
After a thorough examination and discussion, our doctor will recommend a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Our treatment plans for arthritis commonly include:
Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) works very well to help heal the source of your pain or injury for long-lasting pain relief. A PRP injection is made up of concentrated platelets from your own blood. Platelets are high in growth factors, and they promote the healing of damaged tissue. This procedure is done right in our office with little-to-no downtime and virtually no risk of rejections since it is derived from your own body.
Chiropractic Care and Spinal Decompression
Chiropractic care can provide pain relief from arthritis by ensuring that the spine is correctly aligned. Even when your arthritic joints aren’t directly related to the spine, a misaligned or compressed spine can prevent the body from functioning optimally, making it more difficult to recover from any injury or illness including arthritis. The doctor will examine your spine, and if any poorly positioned vertebrae are detected, a safe, gentle technique is used to correct the issue. This helps to restore the body to its natural state of equilibrium and can provide pain relief throughout the body.
What Causes Arthritis?
Although there are many forms of arthritis and the condition affects over 50 million Americans, its causes are not clearly understood.
Risk factors include:
- Gender (some forms of arthritis are more common in men or women)
- previous injury to a joint
- genetic factors
Arthritis can affect any joints, most commonly in the hands, back, knees, and hips.
