Trigger Point Injections
Trigger point injections are another simple injection used to target the underlying joint causing your pain. This treatment is suitable for common trigger points like arthritis in hands, arthritis in the knee, or even arthritis in the back. Once we’ve determined the muscle point that’s the source of your pain, we inject a combination of all-natural and anti-inflammatory medications to soothe painful inflammation.
Our chiropractor is experienced in treating symptoms of arthritis. Identifying the cause of your joint pain is paramount to designing your treatment plan, which may include manual manipulations to your spine to keep your joints moving and reduce the degenerative process.
What Causes Arthritis?
The exact cause of arthritis is still being researched. We do recognize, however, that you might be genetically predisposed to develop the disease. If you have a family history of arthritis, then you may be prone to developing the condition. Arthritis causes also include immune system or metabolic issues like gout. Other factors that may contribute to the development of arthritis include:
- Obesity, which places excessive strain on your joints
- Previous joint damage such as an old sports injury
- Activities that require repetitive movements of a particular joint
- Lack of physical activity
- Degeneration due to aging
Types of Arthritis
Arthritis causes inflammation or swelling of the joints. Osteoarthritis, the most common type of arthritis, gradually develops over many years leading to progressive loss of cartilage in the joint often occurring without symptoms. While there are hundreds of different types of arthritis, most people suffer from a few common ones like rheumatoid arthritis or gout.
If you are experiencing persistent joint pain, don't delay. Arthritis hampers your movement and quality of life as the condition worsens. We can help you understand your arthritis symptoms and offer you all-natural alternatives to manage this crippling disease.
