Developing pain in your joints and certain points in your body raises concerns about your health and general well-being. Depending on your situation, a treatment plan to address the discomfort will vary. In many cases, the pain stems from arthritis and a chiropractor at our Downtown Calgary, Alberta clinic provides the tools to address the pain and discomfort.
What is Arthritis?
While individuals may face a variety of different types of arthritis conditions, it generally refers to a type of inflammation and pain in the joints of the body. Depending on the location of the arthritis, it may cause generalized pain, swelling or stiffness in the joints.
Some forms of arthritis stem from gradual loss of connective tissues between the joints. As the connective tissue degrades or rubs away over time, it causes pain from the bones directly rubbing against other bones. Other forms of arthritis stem from the body actually attacking the connective tissue due to immune conditions. The inflammation damages the tissues and causes pain in the area.
Any type of arthritis leads to inflammation, but the severity and the impact on your health depends on the underlying cause of the condition. It is most common in older adults, but certain forms of the condition can develop at any age and may even impact children.
How Chiropractic Care Treats Arthritis
At Bankers Hall Chiropractic in Downtown Calgary, we evaluate your situation before providing any treatment process for the inflammation. We usually use tools like an x-ray to check the severity of the condition and determine the extent of the damage to the connective tissues in your joints. The x-ray also ensures that the cause of pain does not stem from other complications. For example, we ensure that the pain does not stem from a broken or cracked bone rather than inflammation from arthritis.
Based on the results of an evaluation, we use tools like adjustments, cold laser therapy and ultrasound therapy to reduce the inflammation with natural solutions. We may also suggest certain anti-inflammatory medications when appropriate for the specific type of condition and the situation. We use a combination of treatments based on the specific needs of the individual.
