Arthritis is a condition that affects the joints, causing pain, swelling, and stiffness. Symptoms range from mild to severe, and can be debilitating.
Types of arthritis include:
As a chiropractor, Dr. Arik Axness and Curran Doughtery, DC focuses on your body’s structure and function. When it comes to joint health and arthritis, he manipulates the joint to improve function and reduce pain.
If you have neck or back pain due to osteoarthritis, a chiropractic manipulation from your Axness care provider may be the safest, most effective treatment to reduce pain and improve your quality of life.
However, if your joints are inflamed, they might recommend an alternative treatment to reduce symptoms, such as acupuncture or amniotic therapy.
As an alternative treatment that stimulates your body’s natural healing powers, acupuncture may help relieve symptoms caused by arthritis.
During treatment, Jenna Niggeler, LAc inserts tiny, sterile needles at very specific points to help relieve arthritic symptoms. These points may not necessarily be at the direct site of your arthritis.
The needles trigger your body to release natural pain-relieving endorphins, block pain signals to the brain, and release the tight, tender knots that form in your muscles that exacerbate arthritis pain.
Amniotic therapy is designed to promote healing and health and can serve as a form of treatment for your arthritis. When Lisa Williams, FNP-C injects amniotic fluids into your arthritic joint, the blank amniotic cells form into the necessary cells to fight inflammation and form new tissue to improve function and reduce pain.
