Pain You Don't Have To Live With!!!
Of the millions who suffer the recurring and agonizing pain of Bursitis, Chiropractic
is fast becoming the treatment of choice. Chiropractors provide gentle treatment
to correct the cause of this often disabling condition. Bursitis can occur in
almost any joint of the body, but the shoulder, elbow, hip and knee are the
most commons areas of involvement.
The joints have a padded sac and glands which produce a lubricating fluid.
Four small glands around the thyroid, the parathyroids, control the calcium
and phosphorous levels in the blood, bones and ligaments. The adrenal glands
produce cortisone necessary for the surface tissue of the joints.
The delicate balance of joint fluids and the coordination of movement is controlled
by the nervous system which begins in the brain and continues down the spinal
cord and out between the vertebrae of the spine to the glands and joints.
Occasionally, due to trauma or stress, muscles along the spine will contract
severely enough of for long enough as to pull the spine out of its normal alignment,
producing pressure on nerves to the glands and joints. Without proper nerve
supply to the various glands and joints, the amount of fluids, the viscosity
of fluids and the slipperiness of the fluids can be affected. An example would
be an automobile that is low on oil, or the oil is old and too thick. If we
drive the car for too long we'll have problems with the moving parts
of the engine.
The automobile doesn't have a self-healing system. The human body does!! Your
body has an Innate Intelligence that can produce more fluids when needed. Once
normal nerve supply is restored to the joints, glands and tissues through the
gentle expertise of modern day Chiropractic, then "the power that created
the body can heal the body."
If you or someone you know is suffering from the discomfort of Bursitis, more
than likely is a needless suffering. Time is a friend of disease. Left untreated,
Bursitis can become Arthritis.
