Carrboro/Chapel Hill, North Carolina Chiropractor
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic condition. It causes the body’s immune system to attack various regions of the body, which in turn leads to pain. It is associated with chronic inflammation and over time, destroys tissues, joints, and organs. Though there is no official cure for rheumatoid arthritis, chiropractic care can help patients manage the pain associated with the disease.
Inflammation in the body is affected by the immune, endocrine, and nervous systems, all of which are associated with abnormal neurological control. Chiropractic treatments can restore neurological control and bring balance to these systems. A chiropractic adjustment can not only provide pain relief, it can alter the body’s performance.
Studies have shown that specific chiropractic adjustments affect the white blood cell count in the areas that are treated. Adjustments also improve posture and restore immune function. This reduces inflammation and slows the progression of rheumatoid arthritis. It also reduces the pain associated with the disease.
Chiropractic care including nutrition is one of the most effective and affordable options for managing rheumatoid arthritis. Patients can reduce or eliminate medications needed to treat the symptoms of the disease and are able to live active, full lives, despite their condition.
If you are battling with rheumatoid arthritis, there is no reason to lose hope because there is no cure. Chiropractic care helps you manage the pain and symptoms associated with the disease. Contact Neville Chiropractic today to discuss your affordable options or schedule a no-fee consultation.
