Although it doesn’t feel it in many areas of the country, fall is quickly approaching. Kids are back at school and that means cooler weather will soon be here. While for many, this season is a time of relaxation before winter or a nice reprieve from the heat of summer, for others it is not so joyful. While many people enjoy the seasonal rise of pumpkin spice, well, everything, others see this time of year only as a precursor to the pain and discomfort that comes along with the colder weather.
For many, fall and winter bring more medical problems. Cracked, dry skin is a common complaint that becomes more prevalent around this time of year. Another issue that begins to rise around this time is arthritic joint pain. Due to the colder temperatures and the changes in humidity, many people who suffer from arthritis and other joint disorders can find themselves in a higher level of discomfort than they do during the warmer months of the year. Unfortunately, for many this means more pain pills or simply having to grin and bear it. Invisible disorders such as arthritis have a certain stigma about them and most who suffer choose to deal in silence rather than complain and receive odd looks or people claiming they are only saying these things for attention.
At Wirth, we understand that just because the source of your pain cannot be seen doesn’t mean it does not exist. Many disorders that are considered “invisible” have been discovered through the years, and more continue to be added to medical text books along the way. We also understand that for ages, chiropractors have been helping to alleviate the pain that those who suffer from these disorders feel, even before they were categorized and diagnosed as medical conditions.
Coming in for a chiropractic adjustment is a quick and easy task. An adjustment requires no needles, no incisions, and no braces. Although it may be in your best interest to wear some type of brace depending on your medical condition, most people can simply walk in and out of our office with ease. The benefits of chiropractic care for those suffering from arthritis is well documented, but only you can know how it helps you personally. Come in today and see how much better it makes you feel!
