Help for Arthritis Sufferers in the Te Puke Area
If you suffer from rheumatoid or inflammatory arthritis and believe slowing down or taking painkillers is the best way to find relief, think again! Although taking it easy and drug therapy was the recommended treatment plan for arthritis, today’s research indicates that exercise and chiropractic care offer a better solution. You can treat arthritis pain without medicine with specific and corrective Chiropractic care in Te Puke.
The Causes and Symptoms of Arthritis
Arthritis is a type of rheumatic disease that leads to painful joint inflammation. Thousands of Kiwis suffer from rheumatoid arthritis (RA). This long-lasting disease typically develops in older adults, although it can also occur in children.
Symptoms of RA include pain, stiffness, warm and swollen joints, loss of mobility and malaise. RA most frequently occurs in the wrist and fingers, although you might feel symptoms in other areas. It is a symmetrical condition, meaning that both hands - or feet, knees, hips or shoulders - feel symptoms at the same time. Without treatment, severe arthritis may develop. That can lead to constant pain, joint damage, and disability.
RA begins when your immune system attacks the protective membrane around your joints. The inflammatory response weakens the surrounding cartilage and bone. Although no one knows what causes the immune system’s attack, genetics likely play a role. Environmental factors can also play a part. Women have been proven to be more likely to develop RA than men.
There is no known cure for rheumatoid arthritis, but there is therapy. Surgery is another possibility. Certain painkillers reduce discomfort, but if you desire a drug-free arthritis treatment, then chiropractic care may help.
The Chiropractors at Te Puke Chiropractic can perform therapy to protect your joints and keep you active and flexible. They may also suggest new ways to perform activities of daily living that will increase your independence and improve your mobility.
The specially trained Chiropractors at Te Puke Chiropractic have a combined experience of over 65 years in Chiropractic and can develop customized plans for individual patients who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. The most effective treatments blend an ideal mix of exercise and rest to build stronger muscles, improve endurance and flexibility, decrease inflammation, reduce pain and fatigue, and control weight. By following our care plans, you’ll control your weight while minimizing the risk of stress injuries. Because arthritis is a chronic condition requiring constant vigilance, regular treatment - especially during flare-ups - improves treatment outcomes.
