Arthritis Q&A

What is arthritis?

Arthritis is a common bone disorder that's affiliated with chronic joint inflammation. It can occur in any joint in the body and is associated with:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Decreased range of motion

There are multiple types of arthritis. Osteoarthritis is the most common type and occurs when the cartilage in the joints wears away. When that happens, the bones rub against one another, causing pain and inflammation.

Inflammatory arthritis occurs when the immune system malfunctions and includes both rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis. If you think you have arthritis, contact Dr. Goldstein today. He may be able to help reduce your symptoms and prevent the disease from worsening.

How is arthritis treated?

While arthritis can't be cured, Dr. Goldstein can treat its symptoms. During your initial consultation with Dr. Goldstein, he discusses the available options for your needs. Beyond chiropractic services, he may recommend:

  • Physical exercise
  • Stretching, including yoga
  • Weight loss
  • Heat and ice treatments
  • Over-the-counter medications

In some cases, chiropractic services can help with arthritis pain by reducing inflammation and increasing mobility. Contact Dr. Goldstein’s office today to learn more.

Can chiropractic services help with arthritis?

Although chiropractors can’t cure arthritis, they can help with the inflammation and associated joint pain. By using a variety of procedures, Dr. Goldstein may be able to help you restore mobility and reduce pain.

Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Goldstein may recommend:

  • Gentle realignment
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Cold laser therapy
  • Ultrasound therapy

Chiropractic services for arthritis may not be right for everyone. Be sure to contact Spinal Correction Chiropractic to find out if they may be right for you and your arthritis pain.

What is cold laser therapy?

Cold laser therapy is an innovative, non-invasive treatment for pain reduction. Using specialized laser lights that don’t damage the skin, Dr. Goldstein uses cold laser therapy to help reduce inflammation in joints and surrounding tissue. It also works to promote healing at the cellular level.

To reach optimal effects, Dr. Goldstein uses cold laser therapy in conjunction with other types of chiropractic treatments, and you often need more than one treatment. Dr. Goldstein’s recommendation is typically between eight and 30 sessions, with two to four sessions per week.
