Chiropractic Care Can Help Reduce The Pain Associated With Chronic Illness
Nov 27, 2017

Trying to maintain a healthy system can be difficult at times considering how many parts of the body need to work simultaneously to create balance. If illness appears and disrupts such stability, it often leads us to seek treatment for relief. For some people, diseases such as cancer offer few options when it comes to the type of treatment that’s available or appropriate. In other cases where a less severe condition exists, patients may have the opportunity to focus their efforts on addressing their symptoms to improve their overall health.

Chiropractic Treatment For Rheumatoid Arthritis

Although osteoarthritis derives from mechanical issues, rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder that shares similar symptoms. Rheumatoid arthritis can be passed down from family members or develop as a result of an infection. Patients with this chronic condition often experience joint pain, inflammation, loss of mobility, and stiffness. Inflammation, specifically, can exist in the:

  • Neck
  • Hips
  • Knees
  • Shoulders
  • Feet
  • Ankles

For many people who have Rheumatoid Arthritis, Chiropractic Treatment is useful for reducing many of these symptoms, while also alleviating pain. Regular adjustments and compression techniques help relieve joint pressure, which also reducing inflammation and improving mobility.


Symptoms associated with fibromyalgia include exhaustion, sleep disorders, and short-term memory issues, as well as joint pain. Fibromyalgia interferes with the brain’s ability to interpret pain, which causes minor aches to feel more extreme. Such symptoms can derive from an infection, physical trauma, or emotional stress although medical practitioners are not always able to determine the exact source.

Women tend to experience fibromyalgia more than other demographics and often causes patients to experience frequent headaches, anxiety, and depression. Finding ways to reduce personal stress can help alleviate these symptoms, while our Chiropractors can help treat headaches and joint pain.
