Osteoarthritis

Arthritis is a condition that is caused by the wearing down of the cartilage between joints.  Some of the major joints that are affected are the knees, hips, back neck and hands/wrist.  Arthritis can be painful and can cause the affected areas to not function properly.  Arthritis in the one area can cause arthritis or referred areas to not function properly.  Arthritis in one area can cause arthritis or referred pain in a different area.  For instance, if you have arthritis in your left knee, you may compensate for this by putting more pressure on your right side, leading to right hip problems.

Chiropractic Treatment

Traditional chiropractic has done a good job for arthritis in the spinal joints (facet arthrosis).  It has not had much to offer to the other joints such as knees and shoulders-UNTIL NOW!!!!

With the availability of MLS Laser Therapy, we can now successfully treat the majority of painful joint conditions!  That is because the pain from osteoarthritis is predominantly from inflammation in the joint.  The joints are filled with synovial fluid and when they become inflamed because of wear-and-tear arthritis, they hurt.  MLS M6 Laser addresses this inflammation directly by flushing it out at experiencing immediate increases in range of motion (flexibility) from the very first treatment. 

Orthopedic Surgeons, as well as Doctors of Chiropractic using the MLS Laser, are on a mission to spread the word on opioid sparing treatments.  As Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Sigman, states; “Patients are aware, and patients are worried about opioid addictions.”

Dr. Tucker here at Brookview Chiropractic Clinic shares that sentiment.  He never wants patients to find that they are one who will become addicted to opioids.  Built on a 30-year foundation of scientific research, the patented MLS pulse-pattern Laser has been proven safe and effective for a wide range of pain-related osteoarthritis conditions.  That includes: shoulder, knees, wrists, and hands.  And of course it is also great for arthritis in the joints of the spine.

In coordination with MLS Laser therapy, chiropractic can alleviate pain by releasing irritation to the nerves with proper alignment.  We have gentle, extremity manipulations for restoration of movement to all the major joints.  We are not concerned strictly with the affected area, but rather the body as a whole.  We aim to restore and maintain proper movement and functionality to increase your overall well being.  When you can move without pain, you can walk and get the exercise you crave.  Every aspect of your health benefits, from your nervous system to your cardiovascular health.
