The primary clinical technique used by Doctors of Chiropractic is called joint manipulation or adjustment. Salt Lake City chiropractors treat mainly musculoskeletal problems including spinal degeneration, bursitis, back pain, shoulder pain, frequent headaches and fibromyalgia.
Today’s Branson Chiropractic blog focuses on one of the most common and debilitating musculoskeletal problems: arthritis. Thousands of Salt Lake City men, women, and children have been diagnosed with arthritis. Nationally, about 37 million people have arthritis, nearly 1 out of 7. If you are one of the many Draper folks who have arthritis, you have experienced the pain and stiffness caused by this inflammation.
The main features of arthritis are inflammation and cartilage degeneration in a joint. Did you know that there are over 100 different types of arthritis?
You have probably heard of some of the following types:1
Osteoarthritis (the most common)
Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis
Adult Still’s disease
Fungal infections (blastomycosis)
Tertiary Lyme disease
When the protective cartilage in a joint breaks down, the bones in the joints rub together causing swelling, pain, and stiffness. The inflammation causes more problems and the vicious cycle of arthritis is set in motion.
I provide natural arthritis pain treatment for hundreds of Salt Lake City chiropractic patients at Branson Chiropractic. Don’t equate the word ‘natural’ with ‘less-effective’. Chiropractic manipulation is one of the best ways to Reduce Arthritis Pain, preserve or increase range of motion, and reduce stiffness.
Even if your arthritis is chronic, chiropractic treatment can lessen the symptoms and improve your life significantly. Call today to schedule an appointment. I look forward to helping you live pain-free.
