How Chronic Inflammation Affects Your Overall Health and What You Can Do About It

by | Dec 21, 2020 | The Rubin Chiropractic Health Center Blog

Did you know that chronic inflammation affects more than just the damaged part of your body? In fact, the body’s inflammatory response can be so violent and prolonged that it causes secondary diagnoses. 

When your body is injured, damaged from a chronic illness, or ill, it causes an inflammatory reaction in the body. When you have chronic pain or illnesses, the inflammation can last long enough to start doing damage to your overall health.

The most common symptoms of chronic inflammation are:

  • Tiredness
  • Unexplained fever
  • Rashes
  • Abdominal pain
  • Chest pain and tightness

If you experience any of these symptoms in conjunction with conditions or injuries that create an inflammatory response, you need to seek treatment with your doctor as soon as you can.

If chronic inflammation continues unchecked, it can lead to:

  • Heart disease
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Asthma

But what can you do about it?

If you have a chronic condition or chronic pain, chances are you will have chronic inflammation. To keep your health under control, it is important to take measures to reduce inflammation in the body.
