Dr. Haydel, your Houma chiropractor, and the rest of the staff at HealthPro Wellness Center can develop an individualized treatment plan for managing your arthritis pain. A variety of chiropractic treatments are available for managing arthritis. Depending on your needs and the severity of your arthritis, your treatment plan might consist of only a single treatment method or a combination of several treatments. Dr. Haydel can outline the best treatment approach for your needs. Chiropractic treatments for managing arthritis include:

  • Massage therapy
  • Trigger point therapy

Many of the above therapies, such as spinal adjustments, ultrasound treatment, and stretching, help reduce the stiffness associated with arthritis, which can alleviate pain and discomfort.

Massage therapy and trigger point therapy both help reduce some of the muscle pain resulting from arthritis flare-ups. Overall, the different therapies available provide relief by reducing inflammation, stiffness, or muscle pain. Some therapies might even reduce the severity of future arthritis flare-ups.
