ABOUT Chronic Inflammation

Chronic inflammation occurs when the body generates an inflammatory response that is greater than necessary because of an imbalance in the immune system or a condition that causes the immune system to attack itself. There are a plethora of issues that can cause chronic inflammation to occur including food sensitivities, lack of sleep, and continuously high stress. Some other conditions that cause chronic inflammation include Rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, and multiple sclerosis. 

CAUSES OF CHRONIC INFLAMMATION

There are a  multitude of causes of chronic inflammation with the most common being an untreated cause of acute inflammation such as an infection, an autoimmune disorder, which involves your immune system attacking healthy tissue, or long term exposure to harmful chemicals or irritants. In  our office, we most commonly see chronic inflammation linked to the gut.

We know this to be called leaky gut. Leaky gut is a form of chronic inflammation in the stomach and intestines that is most commonly linked to smoking, obesity, alcohol, chronic stress, and eating a lot of processed foods, gluten, sugar, and dairy. This form of chronic inflammation can cause joint and muscle pain throughout the whole body

Great atmosphere. Friendly staff that makes you feel welcomed.

TREATMENT OPTIONS In Lebanon County, PA

Chiropractic care may be helpful in the reduction of chronic inflammation. Getting adjusted helps by realigning the spine in order to take unnecessary pressure off of the nerves throughout your body. When your spine and joints are properly aligned, your body’s natural biomechanics return to normal. By restoring proper biomechanics, the production of neuropeptides and cytokines, which cause inflammation, can be reduced. Along with chiropractic care, we recommend scheduling an appointment with our nutritionist to see if dietary counseling may be right for you as well to help combat your chronic inflammation.
