What is arthritis?
Dr. Steven Silverman has experience in arthritis treatment at his Delray Beach clinic, tackling inflammation and relieving joint pain through chiropractic care. Arthritis is a condition where the cartilage between joints is worn down, resulting in inflammation. The two most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Osteoarthritis involves the joint’s cartilage wearing down enough to result in the bones connecting it grinding against each other, resulting in joint pain and restricted movement. In rheumatoid arthritis, the body’s immune system attacks the synovial membrane that encloses all of the joint’s parts, causing the lining of the joint capsule to become inflamed and swollen, eventually destroying the cartilage and bone within the joint if left without arthritis treatment from our Delray Beach clinic.
While wear and tear can happen over the years to cause this condition, joint injury and infection can speed up the process of flare-ups as well as aging, family history, or obesity.
What can I do to relieve my arthritis pain?
While pain killers can act as a temporary solution for joint pain relief, it is not a lifelong way of solving this ailment. Arthritis treatment can alleviate pain with an alignment that releases pressure on the nervous system. By restoring proper joint movement and ensuring you use proper motion to prevent other injuries from occurring, arthritis treatment can help assure that joints can repair without having to contend with factors that intensify arthritis.
With Dr. Silverman’s Delray Beach arthritis treatment, emphasis is places on body movement as a whole with overall functionality allowing patients to improve their well-being and find a long-term solution with arthritis treatment and joint pain relief in Delray Beach for patients across southern Florida.
