Chiropractic Treatment for Joint Pain and Arthritis

Chiropractic treatments for joint pain and arthritis are very effective.  Joint pain is caused by a trauma which may have forced the joint out of its natural alignment, chronic poor posture, sports injuries and the bodies own inflammatory response.  Often inflammation accompanies the injury increasing the patients pain by putting pressure on surrounding nerves.  Chiropractic joint adjustments followed by appropriate therapies correct the issues causing the pain and reduce related joint inflammation helping the patient to feel immediate relief.

Arthritis is referred to as the chronic swelling, joint damage, and pain in the joints.  There are many different types of arthritis. Symptoms may vary from patient to patient. Pain levels can change from day to or even week to week with the same patient.  Arthritis can affect almost all areas of the body but arthritis of the joints is the most common.  Chiropractic adjustments and soft tissue treatments are  commonly used to treat arthritis and related pain.

I have been going to Dr. Danielle since February and I have improved tremendously! She has helped me so much and has been the most understanding Dr. I have been to. She is genuine and truly cares about my well-being and making sure I get better. I have seen her with other patients when I go for my visits and she is just as amazing with them as she is with me. They make an excellent team and I highly recommend OptiLife because of their professionalism and astounding knowledge on Chiropractic care.
