Irvine Chiropractic Clinics Help Joint Inflammation

Chiropractic Care for Joint Inflammation

The human body has several different types of joints, including ball and socket joints, gliding joints, hinge joints and saddle joints. Considering the complex mechanisms that go into to making it all work together, it’s little wonder that joint pain is a big issue in society. Irvine chiropractors treat cases relating to joint pain on a regular basis, and the primary cause is inflammation.

What Is Joint Inflammation?

Inflammation is a normal body reaction that’s part of the immune response. Sometimes, when there is an injury your body benefits from the subsequent inflammation because it aids in the healing process. However, there are times when existing inflammation creates more inflammation, which is not a good situation.

Arthritis is the most common form of joint inflammation, and most people know someone that has it. The two main types of arthritis are known as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis refers to wear and tear in the joints due to injury, overuse or normal aging. Rheumatoid arthritis happens when there is a problem with immune system function, causing joint inflammation.

Foods that Cause Joint Inflammation

There are certain foods that tend to trigger joint inflammation for many patients. If you suffer from joint inflammation, you may be instructed to limit some foods. Some of the main culprits include processed sugars, trans fats, refined flour, MSG, gluten and alcohol.  Certain eating plans have shown positive results when it comes to reducing inflammation.

Chiropractic Care for Inflammation

Our chiropractic team at Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic regularly uses joint adjustments to ease inflammation and treat the cause of joint pain. Since every patient is different, and every situation is different, treatments are customized so they will have the greatest effect. Sometimes, ultrasound therapy or ice treatments will also be part of the overall treatment protocol.

Reducing pressure on your joints by strengthening the surrounding muscles is another tactic that can help with joint inflammation. Movement therapies like yoga, tai chi or Pilates can help to strengthen and lengthen muscles at the same time. This will give the affected joints a break and will reduce pain and swelling caused by overuse. The most important step is to book a consultation so your chiropractor can assess the situation and come up with a suitable treatment plan and solution for your joint inflammation.

At Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic our team is here to help answer your questions.  Please feel free to contact us today.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

"I thank you Dr. Roch for helping me lead headache free days, and also for knowing that I was not doing something wrong in my every day life in order to not be able to deal with stress!"

- Leslie E.

"I can't sing enough praises over the care Dr. Roch gives each of his patients. When my son got hit in the head accidentally and his headaches came blazing back, Dr. Roch saw him immediately and had him back in headache free state once again. I don't even want to think of where my son would be without Dr. Roch. He has proved to be a blessing in our lives."

- Julie H.

"With periodic adjustments and stretching exercises recommended by Doctor Johnston, my posture is better, I can touch my toes. I have no aches and pains when I am in adjustment and my body is more flexible in general. I have become quite picky about how I want to feel now that I know what to look for as signs of trouble. Thank you Dr. Johnston."
