Chiropractic Care for Arthritis
When you work with the RxWellness Spine & Health chiropractic team, they will create a plan to heal the root cause of the problem. This plan may include treatments that target both the muscles and the joints of the affected area. Your RxWellness chiropractor may recommend routine adjustments for a set period of time to improve joint mobility, reduce inflammation, or relieve compression of a nerve. When you work with an RxWellness chiropractor, you will also have the opportunity to work a qualified massage therapist. The massage therapist will work on the affected muscles to relieve any stiffness or tightness and improve flexibility. Together, your integrated medical team will administer a care plan to help you see the best results.
Regenerative Medicine for Arthritis
Regenerative medicine is a branch of treatment that prioritizes tissue replacement to symptom management. This means that instead of prescribing medication to relieve pain, the medical expert can speed up healing by introducing specialized cells to the injured area. The two types of regenerative tissue therapy offered at RxWellness Spine & Health are Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) and Trigger Point Injections. PRP therapy is a process that effectively improves the body’s healing process by introducing additional growth factors at the injury site. Trigger Point Injections are a non-surgical treatment to relieve pain and relax knotted muscle tissue. After the injection blood flow will improve allowing the body to heal itself. The purpose of this process is to create the right circumstance for optimal tissue reconstruction. You will have the opportunity to discuss your condition with our integrated medical team, and they can recommend the option best suited for your particular condition.
