Arthritis has been used to describe chronic irritation, inflammation and degeneration of a joint. However, arthritis is broken up into two groups; inflammatory and degenerative. Inflammatory arthritis produces excessive swelling of the joint and can lead to pain and erosive changes in the joint if left unchecked.
The goal of treating degenerative arthritis is therefore to increase flexibility, joint mobility, and improve surrounding musculature function to the area without further irritation. The goal of treating inflammatory arthritis is first and foremost to reduce inflammation to the area temporarily, followed by a plan for helping to prevent the inflammation from re-occurring. As Arthritis patients will have pain in the surrounding tissue, a therapeutic plan should be addressed to lend relief and support of the affected area. Conservative treatment can have profound effects on decreasing symptoms and improving function.
I have been seeing Dr. Troy for years! Started with chronic headaches due to neck and shoulder issues, and he was able to treat me, and teach me techniques to do on my own, to make it better. I now only go see him for maintenance - tune ups, as I no longer have the issues I had before. My entire family goes to him, and I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to feel their best! The entire staff in so friendly, helpful, and accommodating.
Dr. Troy has been keeping my back & neck aligned for over 10 years and is always able to get me fixed up. From the daily strain that comes from computer work or carrying around a baby to the occasional more painful episodes, it's always nice to have a place to go to feel better! All the staff are wonderful & caring.
