Living with arthritis makes it quite difficult to complete life’s daily activities. Simple tasks like walking, opening jars, or even getting up from a chair cause severe pain due to inflamed arthritic joints. If you are one of the millions of people in the world who have arthritis, regenerative medicine may help.
We offer minimally invasive, all-natural treatments like platelet-rich plasma therapy and chiropractic care to help you achieve pain relief in Pinellas Park and surrounding areas.
Arthritis Pain Relief
As you age, the joint cartilage that cushions the ends of your bones breaks down, causing your bones to rub against bone, and making movement painful. It can also damage ligaments and muscles.
Platelet-rich plasma injections, which contain healing elements of your blood, have shown great promise as an alternative to surgery. Once injected at the point of your pain, the growth-factor-rich plasma gets to work to repair damaged cells and rebuild damaged tissues.
If you are looking for a holistic pain relief treatment, chiropractic care may help. Our chiropractor manually adjusts your spine, joints, and muscles based on your specific needs. These manual manipulations may be able to treat your entire body by maximizing the mobility and thus the function of your arthritic joints.
These treatments are natural, administered in-office as outpatient procedures, and require no significant downtime, unlike complicated surgeries. Our therapies require no pain medications, which are known to potentially lead to addiction, and they only mask the pain, doing nothing to treat it.
What Causes Arthritis?
Common symptoms are joint pain, stiffness, and swelling. These symptoms can adversely affect your range of motion and limit your ability to participate in daily activities. Cartilage, the connective tissue between your joints, protects the joints by absorbing the pressure and shock when you move, so when it wears away, any use of the joint causes quite a bit of pain.
Other causes of arthritis include:
- Family history or genetic markers
- Normal wear and tear
- Injury to the joints
Types of Arthritis
Arthritis, inflammation of the joints, has different causes. Two widespread types are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Although these affect adults over the age of 65, arthritis may develop in children, teens, and younger adults. It is also more common in women than in men.
Tendonitis, an autoimmune disorder, gout, and lupus may also be causing your arthritis pain.
