Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic and potentially debilitating inflammatory disease. It causes pain, swelling, and stiffness and loss of function in the joints. The symptoms can also include fatigue, occasional fever, morning stiffness, and a general sense of malaise. The severity of rheumatoid arthritis varies from person to person, but most cases are chronic. That means the disease and its symptoms are active most of the time. Some people have mild or moderate variations of the disease, with periods of flare ups and remissions.. When a person suffers from arthritis, the individual’s immune system cells malfunction. This causes the immune cells to attack their own, healthy joint cells. The resulting joint damage can be disabling.
Doctors have an idea of what causes inflammatory arthritic conditions. Most theories include hypersensitivity, as well as malfunction of the immune system through an auto-immune response. Because of this, the immune system initiates an exaggerated or improper response to its own tissues and attacks its own cells. The immune system depends on normal communication from the brain, through the spinal cord, and to the rest of the body. This allows it to coordinate its functions and perform optimally. This means that alterations in neurological function can contribute to malfunctions in the immune system. Specifically, an imbalance in nervous system function can produce or exaggerate auto-immune reactions within a person’s joints or other locations.
Fortunately, this type of neurological imbalance is exactly what our Brookfield Chiropractors can fix! Subluxations, or misalignments in the spinal vertebrae, are one of the largest causes of neurological imbalance. Bones that are in the wrong position can pinch and irritate the nerves exiting the spinal cord. This causes inflammation and irritation, as well as miscommunication of messages through those nerves. Neurologically-based chiropractors find those subluxations and correct them. Therefore, chiropractors restore the proper function of your nerves!
