Arthritis Treatment Has Come a Long Way

There was a time not too long ago where a diagnosis of arthritis meant a lifetime of pain and loss of mobility. Today, there are simply more treatments for arthritis. Arthritis is the inflammation of the joints and causes pain, swelling and stiffness. Combined with degenerative disc disease or herniated disc, arthritis can lead to severe spinal pain. Rochester area residents are finding much-needed relief at the Campanella Chiropractic and Wellness Center.

One very effective treatment Rochester arthritis sufferers are turning to is chiropractic treatments. Chiropractic adjustments work to relieve the pressure. This relief of pressure in the spinal column causes an immediate relief of pain also. Regular adjustments can help maintain the mobility you have and help decrease any further loss arthritis may produce over time. While chiropractic treatment can’t cure arthritis, the relief felt by most patients and the compounded benefits can mean less reliance on medications and a lot less pain.

Another treatment for Rochester residents living with arthritis is visiting Campanella Chiropractic and Wellness Center to explore acupuncture. This ancient technique has been used for literally thousands of years to treat an endless list of ailments. The reason it is still around and growing in acceptance is simply because it works. Acupuncture has proven benefits for pain relief, including relief from the potentially debilitating pain of arthritis. As a natural treatment that does not include potentially addictive pain medications, it is gaining in popularity more now than ever. Acupuncture involves gently placing small needles into strategic areas of the body. There is no pain as the needles are placed just below the skin. They act to essentially stimulate the body’s meridians. These are believed to the energy carrying pathways. When these pathways are “tapped into”, endorphins are released. Endorphins are the body’s natural pain reliever and feel good chemical that brings much needed relief to arthritis sufferers. Endorphins also act as blockers of pain messages to the brain. When it comes to arthritis, Rochester residents see and feel tangible relief through this ancient practice.

Pain, swelling and discomfort don’t have to be part of daily life for those who suffer from arthritis. Rochester sufferers can turn to Campanella Chiropractic and Wellness Center for natural relief that helps them improve more over time. Both acupuncture and chiropractic adjustments are all natural and are growing in popularity. Some insurance companies even cover these treatments today. As they are more widely accepted, the testimonies and praises seem to grow more and more also. With no pain, no medications and no invasive procedures, these two arthritis treatments are giving Rochester residents more hope for more mobile and active lives.
