To say that arthritis makes your life difficult is an understatement. Yes, arthritis causes significant pain, limited range of motion, limited mobility, and uncomfortable swelling and stiffness; but it also causes cancelled plans, lost play time with children or grandchildren, and loss of the hobbies and activities you used to enjoy. But what if you could get some effective, pain relieving treatment so you can get back to being active? Here are some of the services we offer our arthritis patients that may be of some benefit to you.
Cryotherapy involves enclosing your body up to the neck within an extremely cold chamber for just a few minutes. The chamber is well below -100 degrees Fahrenheit, but it won’t harm you in this small dose. In fact, it can relieve much of the pain and inflammation that you feel in your joints for at least a few days.
This treatment is extremely affordable in our practice. We often have specials that include this and other features of our Elite Recovery Room. After your cryotherapy treatment reduces inflammation, you can take a turn in our infrared sauna for additional therapeutic benefits.
Theralight 360 Red Light Therapy
This innovative new technology allows us to use infrared or low-light energy to penetrate the injury. This increases cellular activity, which in turn decreases inflammation significantly. By doing so, you can get significant pain relief from this treatment.
This treatment also reduces oxidative stress, which is one of the main causes of inflammation in the body. You’ll get many more health benefits from this whole-body inflammation treatment than just relief from joint pain.
If you are tired of being in pain and have limited range of motion due to arthritis, contact us today to schedule your appointment.
