Arthritis

Arthritis: Do I have it and YES we can help!
While many people think of arthritis as a condition that only affects older people, the truth is it affects most people earlier in life due to wear and tear that could have been prevented - had you known! A few forms of arthritis affect children still in diapers, while the most common types affect those in the prime of their lives. Arthritis actually consists of more than 100 different conditions of which can be managed by both Chiropractic and Acupuncture. These can range from tendinitis, bursitis, and osteoarthritis to crippling conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. Have no fear - your doctors at Advanced Sports & Family Chiropractic & Acupuncture are trained in how to best treat you.

There are 206 bones within the human body. Where one bone meets another bone is termed the joint and there are more than 100 joints present throughout the body. Within each joint space there is a fluid layer known as a synovium. The synovium is responsible for nourishing the joints and keeping them lubricated to protect from wear and tear and provide them with a nice, smooth gliding sensation.

Arthritis can be described as an inflammation of this synovial layer within the joints.
When the synovial layer becomes inflamed, the joints have more friction when moving and are not as easily nourished. In turn wear and tear in the joints sets in damaging the underlying bone and causing pain. Chiropractic and Acupuncture have long given arthritis pain relief. As arthritis progresses, pain and loss of mobility tend to follow.

Chiropractic and Acupuncture are very effective with arthritis as it improves mobility and decrease pain and seeks to balance the Qi' of the body, closes the 'gate of pain' and reduces irritation!

Arthritis treatments help to increase the range of motion in the affected joint and allows for more natural movement. The more the joint is allowed to move, the more healing of the joint is promoted.
