If you feel pain in your joints or notice redness in the area, it could be a sign of deteriorated cartilage caused by arthritis. Our doctor in Hudson, NY will diagnose your symptoms and provide you with the best, all-natural treatment for your arthritis pain. We’re devoted to providing you with long-term pain relief so that you and your family can resume a happy, healthy life.
Arthritic Pain Relief
At the center of our all-natural, drug-free treatments for arthritis pain relief is regenerative therapy. Your body is capable of healing itself, but regenerative therapy treatment speeds up your body’s processes by giving it a boost of rejuvenating cells for faster and more effective healing.
We use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for arthritic pain relief. By taking a sample your blood, separating platelets from other blood cells, and synthesizing a formula of proteins and other growth factors, we create a solution that contains a higher concentration of your body’s healing elements. After injecting this formula into targeted aching joints, your body’s healing process is amplified, thereby providing you with pain relief.
In addition to regenerative therapy, we offer chiropractic care. Our chiropractors in Hudson reset your body back to its ideal positioning, helping your entire musculoskeletal and nervous systems function. Chiropractic adjustments reduce the inflammation of affected areas, improve function, and help your body recover from tension and stress.
Physical therapy is another treatment that focuses on developing, maintaining, and restoring body movement. Our doctor will develop an exercise and lifestyle plan to relieve your arthritis pain so that your body stays healthy in the long term.
What Causes Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis is caused by environmental factors or infection. When your body produces antibodies to fight diseases, they can also attack your joints. Your genetics might play a role in the condition of your cartilage, causing arthritic pain.
Post-traumatic arthritis is developed after joint dislocations and fractures. Your body secretes certain hormones following an injury, which might cause cartilage cells to subside. As cartilage wears away, you experience more and more arthritic pain.
Osteoarthritis is identified by inflammation, heat, and redness at the joint. As the degrading cartilage is worn away, it results in friction from raw bones rubbing on each other, degeneration of your joints, and pain.
Types of Arthritis
Although your symptoms are unique to your body, there are four common types of arthritis:
- Osteoarthritis, which is also referred to as degenerative joint disease. This type happens when cartilage wears away over time, and in extreme cases, it completely disappears.
- Rheumatoid arthritis, which is an autoimmune disease, meaning the immune system attacks healthy joints, organs, and tissues. In severe cases, rheumatoid arthritis can deform or even change a joint permanently.
- Post-traumatic arthritis develops after a joint injury. Tendonitis or ligament tears may occur instantly or well after the initial injury.
- Psoriatic arthritis occurs when psoriasis, a scaling skin disorder, affects the joints at the ends of the fingers and toes. If the spine is involved, you’ll experience back pain in addition to other joint pain.
