Arthritis Types, Signs, and Causes

When people talk about having arthritis, they're actually talking about one of many possible conditions. Over 100 different arthritic conditions can afflict the human body, according to the Arthritis Foundation. Many of these are less common conditions such as juvenile or infectious arthritis. Another form of arthritis known as gout is caused by uric acid accumulation in extremity joints. Most sufferers, however, have either osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.

Osteoarthritis is the most common of all arthritic conditions, mainly because it's associated with the wear and tear everybody experiences over a lifetime. The cartilage between the bone ends of joints eventually wears out and breaks down, creating painful joint friction and stiffness. In some cases, osteoarthritis can occur prematurely due to extreme overuse of the joints. Demanding sports activities, challenging physical jobs, or spinal alignment problems can place an extra burden on joints, including vertebral joints. Osteoarthritis may vary in intensity from a mild ache to a sharp pain; it tends to occur with movement, and gets gradually worse over time unless the underlying causes are controlled.

Rheumatoid arthritis is associated with underlying autoimmune conditions in which the body rallies a misguided attack against its own joints. This causes recurring bouts of pain, swelling, and possible damage.

Natural Paths to Pain Relief with Our West Babylon Chiropractor

Drugs can reduce swelling and inflammatory pain for a few hours at a time, but they can't provide genuine relief -- and they certainly can't treat the underlying problems causing your pain. Our West Babylon chiropractor can evaluate your medical history, musculoskeletal alignment, daily habits, and other factors to determine what's causing your symptoms. We can then prescribe all-natural remedies to keep those chronic issues under control. Chiropractic care, traction, and other joint manipulation techniques can help improve pain-free motion in arthritic joints while also improving nerve (and therefore immune) function. You may also benefit from treatments such as cold laser therapy, weight loss (to reduce joint stress), or cryotherapy.
