RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis) is a form of arthritis which is an autoimmune disease, meaning the body turns on itself and attacks the joints. This can cause tremendous inflammation and pain. If left untreated, over time degradation of the joints can take place. Joints can become unstable and the patient may experience a gradual lessening of mobility as well as deformation. Damage from this isn’t reversible. If you have been diagnosed with RA, the sooner you seek treatment the better the sustainable outcome and quality of life.
Surprisingly chiropractic is a wonderful way to lessen the effects of RA and over time, reduce pain, swelling, inflammation and even progression. Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, nondrug form for the treatment of pain.
What Chiropractic can do for your RA symptoms
Inflammation Decreases – with less inflammation in the joint, motion is more normalized and proper nervous system function can be restored. Less inflammation means less pain.
Better Movement – RA’s signature symptom is a deteriorating range of motion. When a chiropractor is able to restore joint restrictions through manipulations it can help free up the normalized range of movement once again allowing for stretching and better circulation.
Nervous System Function Restored – The nervous system controls every organ in the body. When communication has a break down anywhere in the line, malfunction leading to disease can occur. In the case of RA the body literally feels that the joints are foreign invaders and must be dealt with to protect you. It can cause your immune system to work far harder than normal and lead to break down as well.
Nutrition and exercise – RA is helped with proper diet and nutrition and through movement. Dr. Kaster is happy to help in this department as well to get you feeling your best.
