The Impact of Slips and Falls on the Body

Chiropractic Solutions Newsletter – March 2019

A Drug Free Approach to Arthritis and Fibrosis

From the Doctor

If you escaped February without broken bones, a fractured pelvis, or missing a limb, you have done well.  All these little traumas add up, and it wears a body out.  One of the most common causes of degeneration or arthritis are from old seemingly insignificant traumas–yes, those simple slips and falls.
Whether it be slips and falls on the ice, car accidents, sports injuries, shoveling, obesity, or possibly chipping ice, these can all contribute to arthritis.  Arthritis is the most common joint disease, and it happens when the cartilage in the joint wears away due to too much pressure on the joint.  Your arthritis can happen in any joint, and we see it most in the spine, knees, hips, hands, and feet.
We all know a loved one who has arthritis and is miserable due to the pain and lack of mobility caused by this disease.  Medical care for arthritis is pain pills, known as NSAIDS (Advil or Aleve), injections, or surgery, and all of those have obvious risks and side effects.
The best way to treat arthritis naturally is to use food, soft tissue correction, and chiropractic care.  Naturally anti-inflammatory foods that can help arthritis symptoms are oily fish, broccoli, turmeric, ginger, dark leafy greens, green tea and nuts.  Soft tissue correction is lengthening and strengthening the tissues around the affected joint, so it can move with less stress on the arthritic joint.  Chiropractic care can be a great way to manage and relieve pain caused by arthritis.  
Chiropractic adjustments reduce joint restrictions or misalignments in the spine and other joints in the body in an effort to reduce inflammation and improve function of both the affected joint and nervous system. 

Here Dr Matt explains how slips and falls cause fibrosis and why to be proactive in caring for these commonly insignificant injuries:
