Strong joints are critical for a healthy life! However, arthritis can damage your healthy life. With stiff, aching joints, arthritis can hinder your movement and comfort. More than 50 million adults and 300,000 children have some type of arthritis. It is the leading cause of disability in America. Most of you consider arthritis as another sign of aging, believing there is no escape from that. But, here is the good news.
Progressive Medical Center gives the best treatment for arthritis. We guarantee you the pain relief and even reversal of joint degeneration. Before getting familiarised with the therapy and medication for arthritis, let’s know what we are dealing with here. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis and related conditions. Here is the most common arthritis:
Osteoarthritis occurs when cartilage, the protective tissue between bones and joints, wears down. As the cartilage breaks down, your bones lose the protection and cushion they need. Thus, moving around will be painful. Most conventional treatments for arthritis don’t address its underlying causes. Sometimes, they can cause dependency long term and pose many side effects.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic autoimmune disorder. It happens when your immune system attacks the lining of the membranes that surround your joints. It affects joints, causing pain and limited mobility. Stress, food sensitivity, and illness are triggers for this type of arthritis. It is because these are the times when inflammation levels rise in the body.
Progressive has developed an exceptional program to manage osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis symptoms and reduce inflammation. Therefore, you don’t need to worry about the symptoms associated with them. It will also result in long-term health benefits, such as less joint damage and reduced inflammation.
Natural Treatments For Arthritis
The alignment of the spine is vital for a healthy nervous system. All the signals to your muscles and organs travel through the spinal cord. Any traffic jams in this ‘communication roadway,’ will result in muscle pain and joint dysfunction. Chiropractic care can be your solution to arthritis pain.
Progressive offers many treatments to help reduce pain and inflammation in the body. Hyperbaric oxygen helps the body to reduce inflammation and fix itself by saturating the body with oxygen. Far-infrared sauna time helps minimize body inflammation deep within the tissues. Other physical medicine therapies such as bio-matrix, biomat, aspen laser, and soundwave therapy have all been useful in treating and reducing symptoms of arthritis. Finally, cryotherapy has been reported to have reduced the discomfort of arthritis for many days.
Toxins damage the nervous system. Many people have accumulated toxins in their bodies, causing inflammation and pain. Our team at Progressive guides you through a safe and effective detoxification program.
Cells in the body cannot function properly without vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and fatty acids. Your doctor will prescribe dietary supplements to correct nutrient deficiencies you have. Proper nutrition allows the nerve cells to work at optimum capacity and can reduce pain.
A healthy body requires balanced hormones. However, too much stress, poor metabolism, and toxicity can derail your hormone levels. Low levels of hormones make a person weak and fatigued. Our doctors at Progressive will test your hormones and develop a treatment plan unique to you.
Lack of proper sleep can be harmful to your body. The functions of your body can be compromised. Natural techniques and supplements for better sleep can often help reduce pain symptoms and improve immune function.
Your overall health and metabolism are tied to your gut. If there is an irritation or inflammation in the stomach due to a poor diet, your body might raise a red flag. Food allergies commonly cause joint pain and swelling in the gut, which can harm the whole body. An anti-inflammatory, whole foods diet will help you manage pain and inflammation in the body.
Other Alternative Therapies And Devices To Help With Joint Pain
Acupuncture, which is based on ancient Chinese medical practices, is one of the oldest forms of treatment for chronic pain. The treatment stimulates nerves and connective tissues. It can enhance the blood flow, thereby activating your body’s natural painkillers.
The most common assumption is that a need for a knee replacement is proportional to your weight and age. That may not be true. Dr. Pack, the author of The Arthritis Revolution, points out that the pain always starts in one joint first, then the other. However, there is always one that hurts more. If it were just weight and age, then both should hurt the same, because they are supporting the same weight and are the same age. So the key is the alignment. No one has perfect alignment. By using orthotics, we can correct these imperfections that we were born with. When we distribute weight evenly, we avoid damaging joints.
Massage therapy can be a beneficial part of an integrative treatment plan for those suffering from muscle tension due to arthritis. It can relieve a wide variety of symptoms of arthritis.
