If you have an inflammatory condition such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, osteoporosis or eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis, you may benefit from working with a local chiropractor as well as a local rheumatologist. A local chiropractor is a medical professional who is specially trained in treating patients who have disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system, which includes the muscles, tendons, bones and ligaments. If you’re recovering from a surgery such as a hip replacement, you may work with a local chiropractor during your surgical recovery. Or, if you have a chronic inflammatory condition such as polymyalgia rheumatica, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, gout, pseudogout or spondylolysis, you may work with a local chiropractor to improve mobility, regain strength and reduce pain. A local chiropractor can work with your healthcare team to ensure you’re getting optimal treatment for your inflammatory condition, whether it’s your local registered dietitian or your orthopedic surgeon. If you’re interested in learning more about how a local chiropractor can help you, talk to your local family physician or local rheumatologist to get started.
