Pain and Inflammation

The Pain of Inflammation

 

Inflammation is a physical condtion that is typically localized to one specific area of the body as a response to injury or infection. But, understanding what inflammation does is only part of the equation. Knowing how to recognize the symptoms is every bit as important. Here are five signs you may be experiencing inflammation:

     Pain

     Redness

     Heat

     Swelling

     Loss of function

 

What Can Cause Inflammation?

 

While inflammation can take many forms in nearly every part of the body, it commonly occurs within the low back, mid back, and neck. Pain usually arises from microtears and strains caused by:

     Heavy lifting

     Repetitive motion

     Sudden impact

     Poor posture

     Lack of quality sleep

 

How can Inflammation Be Treated?

 

A study published in The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that Chiropractic adjustments helped reduce the production of two inflammatory cytokines. In other words, Chiropractic care can treat inflammation without the need for drugs or opioids, reducing the risk of harmful side effects associated with certain types of medication. We also have a medical team who administers Traumeel and other natural remedies to help with pain and inflammation.
