Treatment for Arthritis Pain from our Chiropractor in Sacramento
Arthritis is an overarching term for joint pain and joint disease. Arthritis pain plagues people of all ages but is especially prevalent as people get older. Chiropractic care for arthritis is becoming increasingly popular, as it provides non-invasive natural treatment and pain management. At Anderson Chiropractic clinic, our Sacramento chiropractor helps patients manage their arthritis pain using comprehensive treatment plans. Dr. Gregg C. Anderson, D.C. has served patients since 1996 and is skilled in a variety of treatments that include counseling and recreational psychology.
Chiropractic Care for Arthritis
While many go to their regular doctor for treatment of their arthritis pain, chiropractic treatment options are considered safe and effective for various pain conditions, including arthritis. There are over 100 types of arthritis, and not all arthritis is the same or can be treated in the same way. For example, those who have back pain or neck pain from osteoarthritis will benefit from standard adjustment methods.
On the other hand, inflammatory arthritis, like rheumatoid arthritis may require a different approach than the standard adjustment methods. At Anderson Chiropractic, we take a whole person approach before beginning arthritis treatment in order to assure the best possible outcome for our patients.
When you first come in, you should have an assessment and an exam, while providing us with your medical history. By checking your joints, we can determine which types of methods are most likely to be most effective for you. For many with rheumatoid arthritis, standard spinal adjustments aren't the best choice, but these are some other treatment methods commonly used for treating arthritis pain.
- Electrotherapy - Using light electric pulses to stimulate nerves and muscles
- Exercise and dietary recommendations - In addition to what is done during chiropractic treatment, much of the success depends largely on the patient's commitment to their own follow up care at home. There are many foods that may aggravate arthritis symptoms, but there are others that help keep arthritis pain at bay such as turmeric.
