Should You Go to a Chiropractor for Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Tacoma Chiropractor Dr. Perry Chinn Joins Proctor Chiropractic

Such therapies might be helpful in someone with RA who has other conditions that could benefit: massage therapy for tight muscles, for example, or ultrasound for a condition of the feet called plantar fasciitis, which causes pain on the bottom of your foot because of tight and inflamed tissues. The Cons of Chiropractic Care for Rheumatoid Arthritis “I think that chiropractors provide a very useful service for many different problems,” says John M. Stuart, MD, professor of medicine and rheumatology at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. “However, their role in RA is somewhat limited.” Dr. Stuart explains that the pain and disability in rheumatoid arthritis is also due to inflammation in the joints as well as vertebrae that may be out of alignment. Medication remains the best way to treat inflammation, says Stuart. Chiropractors cannot prescribe the medications that are needed to treat more severe rheumatoid arthritis. Finding a Chiropractor for Rheumatoid Arthritis If you decide that a visit to the chiropractoris right for you, find a reputable chiropractor with experience treating someone with rheumatoid arthritis. Conduct Internet research (Yelp,com,,, etc.)and talk to people who have used chiropractors. As with all health care choices you make, talk to your primary care doctor or rheumatologist. “Communication is the most important thing,” says Stuart, who emphasizes that patients should always tell their rheumatologist if they are trying any alternative or complementary therapies.

Christensen is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail without bail.

According to a complaint by both the state and the FBI two years ago, Wagner used the names of Christensen and other medical doctors. The prescription pads Wagner used were pre-stamped and pre-signed using the names of those doctors, the complaint shows. Christensen’s name appeared on some of the prescription bottles of Wagner’s patients, investigators said.

Christensen’s arrest comes after an investigation into three medical offices he owned and operated, including part-ownership in Wagner’s clinic in Daytona Beach, which was once a fixture on Ridgewood Avenue. Christensen also owned clinics in Port St. Lucie and West Palm Beach.

The Daytona Beach clinic was raided in August 2011 by the FBI and other federal agencies. The agents were seeking any evidence that would show Wagner was dispensing controlled substances specifically Xanax and Lortab and defrauding insurance companies, according to a criminal complaint filed by FBI Special Agent John Groeschner Jr.

These neurosensory processing disorders, including ADHD, are all related to the central nervous system. All the same things that can exacerbate any central nervous system issue, such as emotional and environmental stress, nutritional deficiencies, and trauma, can exacerbate these disorders. Chiropractic directly addresses these types of issues, and by implementing the tools and concepts from the SHINE for Doctors program, special care can be given to those affected by ADHD. The program is designed to strengthen, balance and improve brain function. According to an article by Kira Bailey, titled ADHD Treatment through the SHINE Protocol Model, those being cared for and those around them have reported improved school and work performance, better behavior, a happier home, better teacher, student, social, work, filial and romantic relationships as well as better sleep and increased ability to focus and improved self-esteem.

“That’ll keep her even while she’s healing up,” he said. Generally, McCarthy sees four categories of patients: animals compensating after surgery, geriatric animals with arthritic issues, performance or show animals whose owners want to maximize their performance and animals injured in accidents. Abby, a Yorkie, definitely suffered from old age. She walked unevenly, legs bowing, back dipping. Consulting with a hospital orthopedic surgeon, Abby’s owner and a local veterinary acupuncturist who has worked on the dog, McCarthy gingerly pressed on Abby’s hips with one hand while cupping her belly. He lightly kneaded her shoulders. In the end, Abby still had a lot of work ahead of her, but McCarthy noticed her topline looked straighter as she ambled around the hospital, checking out ankles. “It looks like she’s sagging less,” he said. His next patient, a Corgi/terrier mix named Lucy, was even older 19. Since she fell down basement stairs last year, McCarthy has been regularly treating her. “Hello, Lucy,” McCarthy said as the dog shuffled into the room.
