There's no cure for arthritis, but there are many treatments that can help manage the pain as well as slow the progression. Common interventions include chiropractic care, lifestyle changes, medicines and surgery. Treatment aims to slow the condition's progress and minimize joint inflammation to help prevent damage to the joint.
The risk of many types of arthritis increases with age. In addition, women are more likely than men to develop rheumatoid arthritis, while men are more likely to develop gout, which is another type of arthritis.
The most common triggers are excessive activity or pressure on the joint. Other triggers can include diet, stress, repetitive motions, cold weather, an infection or weight gain.
Dr. Mike is personable and listens to his patients. My primary interaction with him was with one of my wrestlers that was tryin to get back on the mat after numerous surgeries. He tried and tried and continued to have problems with his shoulder. He was sidelined for a good portion of his senior year. Dr. Mike started working with him a couples days a week. This last for for about 8 weeks. He was ultimately able to compete and placed 3rd in the state tournament. What is truly unique is that he had gone to numerous other experts and the results were always the same. It was different with Dr. mike and so were the results. This guy does it right and gets results! I strongly recommend him.
