Arthritis Q & A
What is arthritis?
Arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects your joints. There are over 100 types of arthritis, but the two most common are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Osteoarthritis affects the health of the cartilage, the tissue that protects the ends of the bones where they form a joint. The disease causes the breakdown of cartilage and allows the bones to rub together, causing pain and difficulties with movement.
With rheumatoid arthritis, your immune system mistakenly attacks the lining of the joints, causing inflammation and irritation and leading to persistent pain and other symptoms that can reduce your quality of life.
What are the symptoms of arthritis?
Symptoms of arthritis can start gradually and worsen over time until they become debilitating. In addition to pain, you can also experience symptoms like:
- Limited range of motion
Your risk for developing arthritis increases with age, especially if you have a family history of the disease or are overweight. You may also be at increased risk for arthritis if you have a history of joint injury.
What treatments are available for arthritis?
Chiropractic therapy not only can increase mobility limited by arthritis, but it can also reduce your dependence on pain medications. Dr. Maimone uses gentle chiropractic adjustments to address misalignments in your spine and the affected joint to naturally reduce inflammation and pain.
She focuses on improving the health of the affected joint, working to increase flexibility and range of motion with each session. Treatment, in turn, allows you to be more physically active, further reducing pain and disability associated with arthritis symptoms.
In addition to chiropractic care, the Align Healing Center team offers other health and wellness services to alleviate arthritis symptoms.
The Align Healing Center staff also offers in-office laser therapy sessions that can increase your blood circulation and reduce inflammation, using painless light energy.
You may benefit from SpectraCell labwork services that help improve your diet to reduce your risk for inflammation that leads to pain. Better eating habits also help you maintain a healthy weight, alleviating unnecessary pressure on your joints.
