Arthritis Treatment in Bentonville, AR

Sciatica can cause chronic pain that doesn’t respond well to pain medication. Sitting up or walking can be unbearable when the sciatic nerve becomes irritated. This condition can affect the gluteals, legs, and hips, reducing a person’s range of motion and sending waves of constant pain. When the sciatic nerve is compressed, the effects may worsen until the condition is treated correctly. With quality chiropractic treatment, instead of resorting to invasive surgery or masking your symptoms with harmful pain medication, you can manage your pain naturally and effectively. At Deep Roots Chiropractic Health Center, we provide gentle adjustments to the spine that will help decompress the affected nerve, alleviate your pain, and improve mobility.

Arthritis can cause symptoms such as:

  • Pain

How Chiropractic Care Can Help With Arthritis

At Deep Roots Chiropractic Health Center, we take a holistic approach to arthritis treatment and pain management. Regardless of your previous diagnosis, our chiropractors will perform a physical assessment, learn about your medical history, and create an individualized care program that will complement other therapies you receive, such as physical therapy. Unfortunately, there is no cure for arthritis, however, it is possible to manage the disease. A chiropractor can provide treatment that can reduce joint pain and inflammation and improve the affected joints' range of motion and flexibility to alleviate your pain and allow you to carry out daily tasks and participate in preferred lifestyle activities.

What to Expect at Your Chiropractic Appointment

At your first appointment, you will need to fill out intake forms to provide us with as much information as possible concerning your medical history, current issues with arthritis, pain level, and the daily challenges you encounter due to the disease. The first appointment is about getting to know all about you and your health issues and creating a plan that can address your pain. A chiropractor will meet with you to review the intake forms, answer all your questions, and discuss common chiropractic treatments used to manage arthritis pain

Initial Evaluation

The next step is a physical assessment. A chiropractor will examine the areas affected by arthritis and assess your entire body, looking for fixated joints and spinal misalignment, to identify any underlying causes and determine the severity of your disease.

Adjustment

Spinal manipulations and adjustments for arthritis will address joint misalignment and restrictions in the affected joints. Our experienced chiropractors will apply controlled force to the affected area to correct a misaligned or restricted joint and restore movement. By improving spinal health, nervous system function, and joint mobility, the body can manage symptoms caused by arthritis. Once the body is aligned correctly, it can reduce nerve pressure and restore joint motion. During an adjustment, your chiropractor may also manipulate soft tissue to relieve muscle tenderness and stop spasms.

Post-Treatment Care

After your first appointment, you can schedule a follow-up session. The frequency of treatment often depends on the severity of arthritis and your health goals. In some cases, you may only need to see your chiropractor once a month, while in severe cases, treatment once a week is optimal to prevent flare-ups and manage pain. Your chiropractor will review other recommended treatments, such as massage, hot and cold treatments, prescribed exercises, and specific lifestyle changes. You'll also be provided with aftercare instructions that you must follow to prevent your body from immediately reverting to the same position it was in before your adjustment. You may be instructed to avoid sitting for long periods on the first day after treatment or participating in strenuous activities.
