How Can the Dorsi Spinal Institute Help With Arthritis

Even though our practitioners excel in maintenance care, it is becoming more common for people to visit us to treat a variety of different kinds of pain. Because of this, our practitioners provide many benefits to people and patients who suffer from a wide variety of conditions like arthritis. In today’s article, we’ll explore how the Dorsi Spinal Institute practitioners can help people who suffer from arthritis and give you additional suggestions on how to alleviate the pain that’s associated with it.

What a Dorsi Spinal Institute Chiropractor does

The Dorsi Spinal Institute practitioners are Chiropractors. Chiropractic is a health professional that focuses primarily on health care instead of sickness care. Their specialty focuses on the spine to correct misalignments.

Regular visits to a Chiropractor can not only restore health throughout the body but also help alleviate back pain and other symptoms associated with an improperly aligned spinal column and its associated muscles. They can also work with their patients to plan exercise routines and alterations in diet to assist management of inflammation and pain. Most insurance companies cover visits to us on at least some level.

What Is Arthritis?

Put simply, arthritis is inflammation in the joints which result in joint pain, stiffness and limited range of movement. There are over 200 different varieties of the ailment. While it is generally associated with age, it can also affect young people. It can strike almost any area of the body, with each region having a different cause and name. In some cases, arthritis can cause damage to soft tissues and muscles, like the heart and lungs.

Osteoarthritis, also called degenerative joint disease, is the most common type of arthritis. It results from repeated trauma to the joint and becomes more common in the elderly.

Other common forms of arthritis include:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis, the second most common form in which the body’s immune system attacks the joint.
  • Psoriatic arthritis, another autoimmune form of arthritis.
  • Ankylosing spondylitis, also a type of arthritis where the body attacks itself.
  • Septic arthritis, which is caused by a viral or bacterial infection of the joint.

Diagnosis

Diagnosing arthritis involves a complete and thorough examination. If a the Dorsi Spinal Institute practitioner feels the need to co-manage the case, a medical work-up by a rheumatologist may be recommended. This can include radiology (x-ray) or an MRI, urine and blood analysis and physical examinations.

It is important to have your condition properly diagnosed so you can more effectively treat the symptoms of the disease.

the Dorsi Spinal Institute and Arthritis

The most common treatment for arthritis is medication, which can take down the inflammation and swelling and reduce pain. However, the Dorsi Spinal Institute practitioners can be of great help in managing arthritis. While medications work, it has long-term health risks such as impairing healing, damage to the stomach lining and internal bleeding.

By visiting a the Dorsi Spinal Institute Chiropractor you may be able to reduce your reliance upon these medications while managing your pain and symptoms naturally. A the Dorsi Spinal Institute practitioner can:

  • Improve your range of motion by keeping your spine in line
  • Improve endurance and flexibility
  • Increase your strength and muscle tone
  • Help you develop a dietary and nutritional plan to reduce inflammation naturally

In addition, the Dorsi Spinal Institute practitioners can recommend an exercise regimen that’s conducive to arthritis. According to the American Chiropractic Association, this is a vital component in managing your arthritis symptoms.

Treating the Symptoms

Please understand that the Dorsi Spinal Institute practitioners cannot cure your arthritis. At this time, there is no cure for this ailment. They can, however, help to alleviate the symptoms and slow the progression of the illness. They may use spinal mobilisation in conjunction with other treatments to address the disease. These options can include:

  • Hot and cold therapy
  • Ultrasound treatments
  • Massage
  • Electronic muscle stimulation
  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Magnet therapy

  CLINIC HOURS

Friday 8:00 – 2:00

Our principal Chiropractor Dr Matthew ABJ Potts has over 20 year experience in healthcare and has developed the unique Dorsi Method that has a waiting list for other practitioners to learn.

Rather than treating everyone the same, our goal is to find the cause of your problems and really understand WHY they have happened. Your treatment plan will be unique to you. The hands-on treatment you receive will be provided by the Chiropractor or Osteopath and a qualified sports therapist. The Chiropractor or Osteopath will take overall responsibility for your care and provide any recommendations plus the spinal manipulation component of your care. Your sports therapist will work on the soft tissues by providing deep tissue massage, traction or stretching and will take care of your rehabilitation: your homework (if necessary.)

The clinic offers a state of the art diagnostic suite including Colour Ultra HD and 3D diagnostic ultrasound and a GE Direct Digital X-ray system due to be installed in early 2019. We also use the latest posture scanners using Infra-red imaging to build a photo-realistic postural avatar of your body. From this scan we can assess your posture, show you where your body is dysfunctional, identifying potential causes for the condition to relapse and most importantly, we re-assess you at regular intervals during your treatment plan without any additional radiation.

Our treatment protocols are ultra specific to your body and may include traction sessions stretching your spine in the exact opposite (Mirror-Image) to its usual incorrect position. You will have a personalised rehabilitation plan designed by our Masters Degree Level trained Rehab Consultant.
