Chiropractic helps with rheumatoid arthritis

 Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease where the body’s immune system attacks your joints.  The hallmark of disease is chronic inflammation.  Over time, it actually destroys joints, tissues and organs. A recent study published in the Annals of Vertebral Subluxation Research shows how chiropractic care showed outstanding results in a woman with long-term rheumatoid arthritis.

An elderly old woman went to see a chiropractor after suffering from rheumatoid arthritis for over seven years. She complained of severe joint pain, especially in the hands and fingers. She also complained of swelling in her hands, fingers, knees, toes and feet. Her pain and swelling were so bad that she had difficulties with just getting around.  Every morning she woke up incredibly stiff every morning. In fact, she was taking several strong drugs just to manage her symptoms. She described her pain severe all the time.

The doctor performed an extensive evaluation including posture evaluation, physical exam and x-ray imaging. The treating doctor found subluxations throughout the spine, especially in the upper neck area. X-rays also showed a loss in the curve of the neck.  As a result of this decreased curve,  a forward head shift was another clinical feature.

Research shows that forward head posture can add a significant amount of abnormal stress pulling the entire spine out of alignment.  This can also restrict normal breathing. In fact, this sort of posture problem can cause a loss of 30 percent of vital lung capacity. When this occurs, your body gets less oxygen which can affect your immune system.

Subluxation is the term for problems in the spine that interrupt nerve pathways.  This, in turn affects the organs and systems of the body impacting your overall health. Causes include any type of physical, emotional, or nutritional stress.  This stress affects nerve function, which leads poor immune function, and increased inflammation.

Subluxation causes Swelling

Chronic inflammatory based disease processes are influenced by several systems.  These include the nervous, endocrine and immune systems. In fact, nerve stimulation is essential for the growth, function and control of inflammatory cells. Researchers have noted that abnormal neurological control results in the development of various auto-immune based inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.

learn about Turmeric and Inflammation

Turmeric and Inflammation.  As I’ve stated in the past, supplements and natural wellness are very popular in the U.S. today.  In fact leading experts expect profits from supplement sales to double between 2012 and 2020.  And like it or not, this really is a double edged sword.  On one hand it gives you free access to an amazing way to support health and wellness.  However, many corporations profit by selling products with false claims.  Today, we will explore a popular supplement many tout for inflammation.  And of course I’ll cover the latest research behind it.

Did you know that many Americans turn to turmeric as the go to supplement for inflammation?  In fact many people use it for both chronic inflammation and for swelling from injuries.  However, according to the NCCI*, extensive research shows turmeric doesn’t help in either case.  What’s more, this research looked at over 579 strong nation-wide studies.  These studies “cannot support claims that turmeric helps to reduce inflammation.”  So where exactly did this information come from?  You can find this research in PubMed and was published in 2013.  Of course it’s also important to realize that chronic inflammation can lead to many serious illnesses.  Which ones?  These ailments include type 2 diabetes, cancer, digestive problems and arthritis.

Support Healthy Inflammation Levels

So just what is the key to supporting healthy inflammation levels?  First of all, It’s important to realize that inflammation is a necessary part of our health.  As a matter of fact it is crucial in the early stages of wound healing.  On the other hand, chronic inflammation is a problem that plagues most Americans.  Why?  For starters, you can thank the all mighty SAD.  But just what is SAD?  It stands for the Standard American Diet, which is rich in simple carbs and the wrong kinds of fibers.  “SADly” (pun intended) this contributes to the very problem.  Another problem is that many Americans are deficient in the vital enzymes required to control and counter the inflammation process.  Through a combination of dietary changes, and the proper enzyme supplements we can support a healthy inflammatory response.
