This year, July has been noted as the National Juvenile Arthritis Month. At SF Custom Chiropractic, Dr Adam Jacobs combines chiropractic care, laser therapy and active release technique to treat patients suffering from arthritis. The SF Custom Chiropractic will offer consultations free of charge and provide laser therapy treatments.
Affecting close to 27 million people in United States, osteoarthritis is extremely common in joints, which bear weights such as the knees, ankles and hips. Arthritis is the result of reduction or loss of joint cartilage causing bones to rub together. This causes extreme pain and irritation, loss of mobility and inflammation. Osteoarthritis can also occur in joints due to injury and genetics. The treatment of arthritis focuses on reduction of pain and slowing down of the degradation process.
Juvenile Arthritis is the arthritis condition that is present in children or teenagers under the age of eighteen. It exhibits osteoarthritic symptoms similar to those in adults. Children can also be affected by the autoimmune diseases known as the Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis.
SF Custom Chiropractic will treat patients using the Multi Radiance Laser, which increases healing time, aids in rapid cell growth, reduces scar tissue and inflammation and increases blood flow. It can be used to treat patients of every age.
Another benefit of the drug-free Multi Radiance Laser therapy is that the treatment can be done non-invasively to treat both chronic and acute pain.
