Arthritis and Chiropractic – Finding Relief for Joint Pain

When you are living in pain due to arthritis, it can seem counterintuitive to move your body, let alone enter into a spinal manipulation adjustment routine. However, getting your body into alignment is crucial for reducing pain and finding relief.

Did you know that regular chiropractic care and exercise can help alleviate arthritic pain?

At West Florida Integrative Wellness Center, we understand how debilitating arthritis can be. That’s why we offer our patients a holistic approach to healing that combines chiropractic care with PRP therapy to reduce arthritis pain and bring relief. Our team of professionals is dedicated to helping you find long-term solutions to arthritic pain.

Understanding Arthritis

Before we dive into how chiropractic care and PRP therapy can help with arthritis pain, let’s understand what arthritis is. Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints that leads to pain and limited mobility. There are over 100 types of arthritis, but the most common are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage that protects the bones in a joint wear down over time, causing bones to rub against each other. This leads to inflammation and pain. Unlike osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation in the joints. The body’s immune system attacks the lining of the joint capsule, leading to pain, swelling, and stiffness.

How Chiropractic Care Helps with Arthritis

Chiropractic care focuses on realigning the body’s musculoskeletal structure, including the spine, to promote natural healing. When you have arthritis, spinal manipulation adjustments can help restore the alignment of your spine, which reduces pain, improves range of motion, and aids in the body’s natural healing process.

In addition to spinal manipulations that can help with arthritic pain, chiropractors can also recommend workout routines that include low-impact exercises such as walking, swimming, and cycling. These exercises help with flexibility, cardiovascular health, weight loss, and inflammation reduction.

The Role of PRP Therapy in Arthritis Treatment

PRP therapy is another holistic approach that we offer for our patients with arthritis. PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) therapy is a non-surgical treatment that uses your blood platelets to initiate natural healing. PRP injections are the concentration of your blood’s plasma containing high levels of platelets that stimulate the growth and repair of soft tissue. PRP injection therapy has been shown to increase the body’s natural healing capabilities, aid in regeneration, and reduce inflammation and pain.
