Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care For Rheumatoid Arthritis Sufferers

Rheumatoid arthritis is a tragic disease that can strike in childhood, adolescence, or even later in life. As the upper cervical chiropractic experts in Georgia, we want to offer the reader alternative ideas on how to help the body heal from this painful condition.  
As it stands, conventional medicine treats rheumatoid through the use of several drugs. These drugs are aimed at decreasing inflammation and modulating pain.
These medications include:

  • NSAIDs – Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs can reduce inflammation and relieve pain.
  • Steroids – Corticosteroid medications, like what is known as prednisone, reduce pain and inflammation in addition to slowing joint damage.
  • Disease-Modifying Antirheumatic Drugs (DMARDs).

While these medications certainly can provide some temporary relief, the larger question that you should be asking is this: What causes my rheumatoid arthritis? And, more importantly, what can you do in this moment to help your body recover in order for you to lead a better quality of life?

Factors in The Development of Rheumatoid

These include genetic factors.as well as what is called leaky gut syndrome, which is subsequent immune damage that leads to food and autoimmune sensitivities.
However, a factor most aren’t aware of is upper cervical (specifically upper neck) trauma which will lead to decreased nervous system function.

Natural Things You Can do to Heal

Like most chronic health conditions, rheumatoid arthritis has a myriad of converging factors that lead to chronic health problems.
One area of research in the quest to uncover causative factors in autoimmunity is with the brain, gut, and axis. While the use of strong pain killing medications as well as corticosteroids often lead to the calming of symptoms, their long term use can, unfortunately, be devastating to the liver and GI track.
Prolonged use of these medications can create a chronic inflammatory response to the gut lining, which will lead to a cascade of detrimental effects on your immunity. Leaky gut aggravates autoimmune problems, however, taking real steps to correct this problem will aid in helping you to recover from rheumatoid, as well as other related autoimmune problems, such as lupus.
For instance, a procedure known as Upper Cervical Chiropractic has been found to be quite effective when it comes to unleashing your body’s innate abilities to both heal and repair. Many people — not even just rheumatoid sufferers —  have experienced neck trauma that is a contributing factor to their health problems.  This is where Upper Cervical Care can act as the link that you didn’t know you were missing.
