Arthritis refers to inflammation of one or several joints within the body. Most patients with arthritis experience chronic pain and stiffness that worsens over time. Although our Atlanta Chiropractors treat hundreds of types of arthritis, the most common is rheumatoid arthritis. This particular kind of arthritis is progressive and does not currently have a cure. However, Chiropractic Treatment does serve as a natural, non-invasive resource for managing the symptoms associated with rheumatoid arthritis.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes the body’s white blood cells to attack its joint tissue. As a result of this assault, the body responds with joint inflammation, which causes significant swelling and pain. If left untreated, the affected joints will become unstable and deformed to a state that’s beyond repair.
For patients who manage rheumatoid arthritis throughout Atlanta, Chiropractic Adjustments are an excellent solution for alleviating painful symptoms like inflammation. Adjustments are customized to meet the unique needs of each patient’s condition and are a safe alternative to painkillers or other potentially addictive medications.
Chiropractic Adjustments also help restore proper functioning of the nervous system, which helps prevent the body’s immune system from attacking itself. And, patients who manage rheumatoid arthritis can restore flexibility to their joints through ongoing Chiropractic Treatment.
If left untreated, rheumatoid arthritis can significantly impair your ability to follow through with everyday activities, professional obligations, and favorite pastime hobbies. While painkillers or prescription medications can provide relief from the symptoms associated with arthritis, they only serve as temporary solutions that are not capable of providing permanent support.
Chiropractic Treatment helps patients experience long-lasting pain relief, while also reversing the effects of inflammation and joint stiffness. If you or someone you know experiences rheumatoid arthritis, contact AICA Atlanta to schedule a free consultation or a complete examination for treatment.
