ABOUT Arthritis

The term arthritis means inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and pain in a joint. Arthritis is extremely common and can impact any joint in the body making life more difficult for those affected by it. There are many different types of arthritis but the most common diagnoses are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and gout. Osteoarthritis is the type most people are diagnosed with. Osteoarthritis generally develops from poor biomechanics leading to wear and tear on the joints over time. As the cartilage in the joint breaks down, it can get stiff and painful to move. Inflammation compounds the problem, causing swelling and more pain. There are many excellent treatments that can address arthritis such as chiropractic adjustments, decompression therapy, and anti-inflammatory nutrition. Regenerative medicine is another promising treatment that can address arthritis at its source and help heal the joint. The doctors at Blue Mountain Wellness Center will assess the severity of your condition and design a treatment plan to meet your needs. 

CAUSES OF ARTHRITIS

The main causes of arthritis are trauma and genetics, but they can also be a result of lifestyle factors. People have a higher chance of developing arthritic conditions when they have physical labor type jobs because of excessive wear on the joints. People who are overweight also increase stress on the joints and can lead them to wear out more quickly. The treatments at Blue Mountain Wellness are designed to address these problems through a whole body approach leading to optimum results. Our Lebanon chiropractors help promote healing, decrease recovery time, and help eliminate additional damage to keep you active and comfortable longer.

I can’t say enough about Dr. Jim and his staff. I was having severe pain in my right shoulder and neck. Called and explained it. They got me in immediately and started working on a wellness plan. They are all great people. It’s a very friendly and warm atmosphere. Just couldn’t be happier the service ! Thank you Blue Mountain Wellness !
