Arthritis Care

More than 50 million Americans of all ages suffer from the pain and stiffness of arthritis. In fact, arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the United States. It is a seriously painful and often debilitating condition, and no one understands that more than Dr. Adams at Progressive Integrated Healthcare. Our Dallas clinic provides comprehensive chiropractic care for arthritis pain and discomfort, with an emphasis on improving movement and flexibility while significantly reducing your pain and inflammation.

There are two major arthritis conditions we see the most:

  • Also known as degenerative arthritis, this condition mainly affects flexible joint cartilage. It is the most common form of arthritis and usually sets in around middle age. We now know that osteoarthritis is a disease of the entire joint rather than the result of normal wear and tear on the body.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis: An auto-immune disease that causes chronic inflammation of the joints. Over time, it may even cause bone erosion and deformity. A blood test can confirm this diagnosis in some, but not all, cases.

Dr. Adams has found great success using chiropractic care to improve arthritis pain, inflammation and stiffness in a non-invasive and gentle way. Chiropractic adjustment therapy greatly improves your overall joint movement and flexibility while reducing pain and swelling. By aligning your spine and promoting overall spinal health, your general nervous system function improves in a way that helps you better manage your arthritis pain and discomfort.

Our Dallas office provides screenings and exams to better understand your condition before we begin therapy, which may include spinal manipulation and adjustment, massage therapy, ultrasonic heat therapy and physical therapy.

Arthritis Therapy

Dr. Adams uses a number of different therapeutic techniques to control arthritis pain, including:

 

  • Ice and Cold Therapy. The application of ice and cold packs reduces inflammation in the affected joints and helps control pain.
  • Ultrasound Therapy. This heat therapy is created by sound waves that penetrate deep into soft tissues and muscles. Ultrasound therapy increases your circulation, reduces muscle spasms, swelling, stiffness, and pain related to arthritis.
  • TENS Unit (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation). This is electrical stimulation of your muscles. The electrical current causes muscular contraction, controls pain and reduces muscle spasms.
  • Adjustments (Spinal Manipulation). Careful adjustment and spinal manipulation help promote improved flexibility of your spine and realign your vertebrae to their proper position. Chiropractic spinal manipulation is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for arthritis in the cervical and lumbar regions.

Our office at Progressive Integrated Healthcare in Dallas will make a full analysis of your general health by conducting a physical examination. Once we determine what your health concerns are and how to treat them, Dr. Adams applies his medical chiropractic care to better improve your pain, movement and overall health.

 

Arthritis Pain Management

Dr. Adams is a family nurse practitioner, which gives him an advantage when it comes to treating painful conditions like arthritis. He can prescribe pain-relieving medications to boost the effectiveness of a patient’s treatment plan. When chiropractic adjustments and physiotherapy aren’t enough, anti-inflammatories and prescription pain medicines are available.

At your initial appointment, we will ask about any drug allergies or adverse reactions you have had to certain medications. Then Dr. Adams will assess the severity and nature of your pain. He might order imaging to help him accurately assess the condition of your joints. If he feels it is appropriate, he will prescribe the most tolerable medication that controls your pain well. The medicine and dosage can be adjusted as necessary during follow-up visits.
