According to Medscape, about 8.3 million people in the United States suffer from gout, and this rate is only growing. A debilitating form of arthritis, gout interferes with a fulfilling life. But at ChiroCareLA.com, Dr. Jack Alajajian and his expert staff are here to help manage this pain. Here are four different types of treatment we offer at our Glendale, CA office to empower gout patients!
What is Gout?
Gout develops from increased levels of uric acid in the body. When your kidney produces too much or not enough uric acid, uric acid crystals build up in your joints, producing hard needle-like shards in the body. This is why gout is characterized by intense pain and inflammation.
Dr. Alajajian and his staff provide a variety of massage therapies at their Glendale, CA location. Designed to alleviate the inflammation caused by gout and stimulate blood circulation in the joints, massage therapy is a beneficial treatment plan to manage gout and other forms of arthritis. From Swedish and sports massage to deep tissue, we work with patients to select the best massage for their needs.
Many patients opt for laser therapy because of its painless procedure and healing results. At ChiroCareLA.com, we use a low-level laser to target your irritated tissues and nervous system.
Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM)
Using comfortable levels of electric currents, FSM is a technique known to treat inflammation and swelling by changing and repairing tissue. While other traditional treatments for gout focus on the symptoms, this technology uses non-invasive treatments to target the root of the issue.
