Arthritis Pain Relief
Arthritis affects over 21 million adults in this country and is the leading cause of disability in the U.S. Arthritis can cause symptoms of pain, inflammation and stiffness. There are two main types of arthritis:
– systemic arthritis including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and gout
– osteoarthritis caused by improper joint biomechanics that results in excessive wear and tear
Chiropractic care can help get your joints in proper alignment improving biomechanics, eliminating the stress that contributes to arthritic conditions.
People suffering from arthritis often turn to prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications for pain relief. Many drugs come with a long list of possible side effects and if used long-term, can be harmful to the body. Chiropractic is a holistic, natural alternative. Along with proper nutrition and exercise, chiropractic can help relieve the life-altering effects of arthritis.
Arthritis can affect people of all ages. Dr. McClung will customize a treatment plan that suits each patient individually.
