Managing Arthritis

Find out how a chiropractor can help you treat arthritis.

Are you living with arthritis? If so, you may be looking for treatment options that can ease your symptoms and help you better manage your arthritis. Our Elko, NV, chiropractors Dr. Wade Taylor and Dr. Shannon McKinney offers tailored, gentle chiropractic care that can help ease pain, stiffness, and swelling and help you feel your best while living with arthritis.

What types of arthritis can chiropractors treat?

There are over 100 different kinds of arthritis, but the most common types of arthritis that our Elko, NV, most often treats include,

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Psoriatic arthritis

It’s important to note that individuals should not get chiropractic care if they have an active flare-up; this is especially important for those with rheumatoid arthritis or psoriatic arthritis. You should not undergo chiropractic treatment if you are currently dealing with swelling that you’re having trouble getting under control.

How does a chiropractor treat arthritis?

While there isn’t a way to cure arthritis, you can take steps to slow the progression of your disease through lifestyle changes, medications, and alternative therapies, including chiropractic care. If you have osteoarthritis, the most common type of arthritis, and dealing with other issues such as neck or back pain, chiropractic treatment is one of the best and most effective options.

Instead of providing more intense spinal adjustments, which may benefit an athlete dealing with aches and pains, our team will provide more gentle spinal adjustments to help reduce inflammation, increase range of motion, and get rid of muscle spasms.

Other therapies that could benefit arthritis include,

  • Ultrasound: can reduce pain, stiffness, and swelling of soft tissue and joints
  • Electrotherapy: treats soft tissue injuries
  • Low-level therapy: targets deeper tissues to reduce inflammation

These other therapies do not apply pressure on the body. However, they can still provide the same therapeutic and effective spinal adjustments and manipulation benefits through other modalities and advanced technologies.
