Chiropractic Care & Inflammation
If you suffer from inflammation, then chiropractic care might be a well-suited treatment for you. Chronic inflammation is most commonly present in diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease and multiple sclerosis. Besides inflammation, some other signs that you may have one of these diseases are:
- Weight gain
- Pain and stiffness in joints
- Shortness of breath
- High blood pressure
- Problems of the skin
- Irritable bowel syndrome
Inflammation comes in the form of heat, pain, redness and swelling. A doctor will be able to tell you why you are suffering from chronic inflammation.
By visiting a chiropractor, you will commonly receive a chiropractic adjustment because of its ability to reduce inflammation. Along with a adjustment, dietary changes will be recommended and will have to be made in order to see results. Dietary changes involve eating more fruits and vegetables and less processed foods. Also exercising, stretching, and taking supplements like vitamin D and magnesium can be suggested to reduce inflammatory symptoms.
The best thing about using chiropractic care for inflammation is that that there are no drugs necessary. It’s always better to choose the safer treatment route that has proven success.
Other ways to help reduce inflammation are broth and turmeric. Broth is composed of minerals and nutrients such as glycine, collagen, gelatin, vegetables, mushrooms, seaweed, and animal bones which help fight inflammation. Turmeric is a herb that has no side effects, but helps in a way similar to ibuprofen, hydrocortisone, and phenylbutazone to reduce inflammation. Turmeric can be added to any dish, soup, or drink.
Combining chiropractic care, a good diet, and an exercise schedule should help with inflammation. Before taking a course on reducing your inflammation woes, first consult with a doctor or chiropractor.
