Inflammation is the body’s response to injury, infection, and disease. For example, a fever is a type of inflammatory response to infection in the body. A swollen ankle is a type of inflammatory response to injury to the body. Acute and chronic inflammation can be a result of a single injury or multiple injuries as a result of an auto accident or slip-and-fall accident. Lifestyle factors such as repetitive strain due to poor posture habits and/or excessive amounts of lifting, pushing, pulling, reaching, and bending can also contribute to inflammation.
Most people treat inflammation with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which include ibuprofen and aspirin. While they can relieve symptoms, they may not address the full underlying cause of inflammation pain. Additional anti-inflammatory treatments may be recommended along with possible lifestyle activity modifications to further reduce the inflammation. Also consider the benefits of chiropractic treatment. Studies have shown that spinal adjustments can reduce the production of certain chemicals (neuropeptides and cytokines, specifically) in the body that cause inflammation. Spinal adjustments also correct dysfunction in the nervous system, which regulates the immune system and can help reduce acute or chronic pain.
When you come to Back & Neck Pain Center for inflammation treatment, Dr. Venis will conduct a full review of your medical history and learn more about the pain you’re experiencing. He will also examine your area of pain and make further recommendations if necessary, such as X-rays or MRI scans.
