Chronic Inflammation

Do your joints ache, or does your back feel particularly uncomfortable? Have you been experiencing more headaches than normal? These concerns stem from swelling, which is normal. Chronic inflammation, however, is not normal and something Palm Beach Health Center treats regularly. Call us today if you’re experiencing an unnatural amount of swelling or have questions.

What is Chronic Swelling?

What is inflammation? Swelling, as it’s often called, is the body’s way of coping with foreign invaders. Its purpose is to protect the endangered area from harm, but it’s a double-edged sword. At Palm Beach Health Center, we can help you reduce the chronic inflammation that’s been troubling you.

Symptoms of inflammation are:

  • Flu-like symptoms

  • Loss of appetite

  • Redness and warmth to the touch

  • Muscle stiffness

Why Does Inflammation Cause Pain?

Pain occurs when a large number of white blood cells flood an infected body part. Doing so causes fluid to leach into your soft tissues, spurring swelling. White blood cells can trigger:

  • Joint irritation

  • Swelling in the joint’s lining

  • Degradation of cartilage

Chronic inflammation may be the reason for your chronic low back or knee pain, headaches, and even weight gain.

Treatment for Chronic Inflammation

Corrective Chiropractic

Small and gradual chiropractic adjustments over time will combat your swelling, making daily tasks much more manageable. Each realignment can help reduce pain and discomfort.

Laser Therapy

The use of medical-grade lasers is exceedingly beneficial across many medical fields. Laser therapy takes just 15 minutes per affected body part, and once it’s over, the pain and discomfort seemingly melt away.
