There are actually over 100 types of arthritis and all of them lead to inflammation, stiffness of joint and debilitating pain which lead to limited function of joints and makes normal living difficult. Most common afflictions include degenerative arthritis or osteoarthritis, auto-immune disorder or rheumatoid arthritis and gout. If left untreated, inflammation and swelling can severely damage the joints. Some may harm essential organs like eyes or your skin. Treatment of Arthritis includes thorough and accurate diagnosis before therapy is introduced. It is more often related to age or injury but can also be the result of severe infection, presence of uric acid crystals and underlying diseases like psoriasis or lupus. In children it is rare but can occur as an immunity disorder called jjuvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

Advanced treatment of Arthritis involves chiropractic treatment, functional neurology which focuses on accurate diagnosis to prevent irreversible damage and disability. Before we go into the various treatment methods and their details, let’s take a look at the symptoms.

Signs and symptoms of various kinds of arthritis:

  • Acute joint pain
  • Reduced ability to move the joint
  • Limited movement options as a whole
  • Stiffness of joints, especially in the morning
  • Swelling in joints
  • Redness of the skin around a joint
  • Warmth and tenderness around a joint
  • Fatigue
  • Depression

Breakthrough in diagnosis and arthritis treatment includes looking at and beyond these symptoms to discern and understand the type you are suffering from. For osteoarthritis patients there will be increased stiffness in the morning, a grating feeling of joints when pressure applied and reduced flexibility. For rheumatoid arthritis patients the symptoms will also include painful and swollen fingers and wrists and zero flexibility right after they wake up, fever swelling of glands and later abnormalities in organs like lungs, heart, or kidneys. For infectious and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis fever is a common symptom along with joint inflammation and swelling, weight loss, lack of appetite and anemia.

Functional neurology involves going deep into the causes which lead to joint damage, inflammations and pain. These could range from an autoimmune disease, general "wear and tear" on joints, broken bone or a severe viral or bacterial infection.
