MIDWEST CITY, Okla., May 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Regular chiropractic may help patients avoid symptoms of arthritis and reduce associated pain. Sweeney Chiropractic Clinic shares that chiropractic is particularly beneficial in conjunction with an anti-inflammatory diet and exercise. During Arthritis Awareness Month in May, area residents should be aware of non-invasive alternative treatments to address discomfort and reduce the severity of symptoms.

One in five American adults, or more than 54 million men and women, develop arthritis. The team at Sweeney Chiropractic Clinic provides chiropractic treatment for those at risk of developing arthritis and others with significant arthritis symptoms and pain. Chiropractic adjustments and complimenting services can help prevent arthritis.

In honor of Arthritis Awareness Month, and as such, individuals are learning more about arthritis, conservative care treatments and acknowledge the everyday victories of those living with arthritis. In addition to sharing personal stories, people are encouraged to take steps to get in more exercise and explore alternative treatments.

Physical activity has shown to help reduce arthritic pain and improve quality of life. Two or three days of muscle-strengthening activities or 150 minutes of brisk walking each week are suggested for all adults. A healthy lifestyle, diet changes, and self-management education classes can help those with arthritis comfortably increase their physical activity.

Many individuals report that they benefit from chiropractic and experience a reduction in pain from arthritis. Chiropractors may, in addition to spinal adjustments, use cold laser therapy, trigger-point therapy, ultrasound therapy, and therapeutic exercises to improve comfort around the joint and minimize damage. A study published in Osteoarthritis and Cartilage showed that patients receiving chiropractic treatment paired with patient education showed improved results for osteoarthritis compared to those only receiving patient education or a daily stretching program. Patients with osteoarthritis who receive chiropractic care may see results in as little as two to six weeks. Let your chiropractor know if you have an active flare-up.

Other complementing treatments support the body’s healing process and reduce the inflammation commonly associated with severe arthritis.

“A number of factors can result in arthritis. Chiropractic and conservative care treatments can reduce inflammation and improve mobility in those with arthritis,” said Dr. Steve C. Sweeney. “Chiropractic treatments are beneficial for many of our patients but work best when combined with lifestyle changes and regular exercise.
