Non-Surgical Solutions for Arthritis
Our method of providing arthritis pain relief focuses on a natural approach, where we will work to maximize the function of arthritic joints and not just cover up your pain with medication.
Whether we use chiropractic care or regenerative medicine, surgery and medication will never be discussed as options because they only mask symptoms and don’t address the true cause of your pain. Once the underlying cause has been treated, you will finally find the relief you’ve been searching for.
Chiropractic Care for Arthritic Conditions
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.
Regenerative Medicine for Arthritis Pain Relief
Our regenerative medicine treatments are safe and effective alternatives to surgery and medication.
Human Cellular Tissue: This regenerative treatment consists of powerful injections into your degraded tissue that helps facilitate the healing process.
Some of the healing compounds in this cellular treatment include:
- Growth factors
- Amino acids
- Hyaluronic acid
- Cluster headaches
PRP therapy: Also called platelet-rich plasma therapy, starts when we draw a small sample of your blood and place it into a centrifuge.
As the blood sample spins, the red blood cells and platelets separate, leaving us with highly concentrated PRP. Platelet-rich plasma contains healing properties that are injected into your arthritic joints to help your body facilitate the healing process.
Both of these regenerative medicine therapies are minimally invasive, consisting of basic injections that require little to no downtime.
Most of the time, you can get on with your day as soon as you’re finished your appointment. There is virtually no chance of rejection for either one of these treatments.
Types of Arthritis
Although the symptoms and pain you feel are unique to your body, there are four common types of arthritis that you might be suffering from.
Osteoarthritis is also called degenerative joint disease and is the most common type of arthritis.
With osteoarthritis, the cartilage starts to wear away over time. In extreme cases, the cartilage can completely wear away, leaving nothing to protect the bones in a joint. Bones may also bulge or stick out at the end of a joint.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease causing the body's immune system to attack healthy joints, tissues, and organs. When severe, rheumatoid arthritis can deform or change a joint permanently.
Post-traumatic arthritis develops following an injury to the hand, wrist, or elbow. This condition may develop years after trauma occurs, such as tendonitis, fractures, or ligament tears.
Psoriatic arthritis occurs when psoriasis, a scaling skin disorder, affects the joints at the ends of the fingers and toes. Back pain may happen if the spine is impacted as well.
