Golfer’s elbow is a condition that affects far more than those who hit the golf course regularly. According to Dynamic Chiropractic, golfer’s elbow can affect violinists, construction workers, tennis players, bikers and more. Essentially, anyone who is prone to overusing the elbow can find themselves with pain inside the forearm and elbow, pain that is unlikely to go away without treatment. While medication and surgery are sometimes options for treatment, chiropractic provides a non-invasive, effective way to relieve golfer’s elbow without the many potential side-effects that come with surgery and prescription medications.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a condition that can cause considerable discomfort—something you are probably well aware of if you have been diagnosed with this autoimmune disease. When your immune system starts attacking your joints instead of foreign invaders inflammation results, and inflammation in your joints is certain to be painful.
The worse the RA, the more severe your symptoms. If things get bad enough you can lose mobility altogether, which is why it is so important to get treatment. Fortunately, chiropractic is excellent for reducing inflammation and improving mobility. With regular chiropractic treatment, you can do a lot to ease your pain and get back to moving the way you want and need to do.
An ankle sprain is always inconvenient, and often painful. But not all ankle sprains are equal in their severity.

For your chiropractor, the classification will help to direct the best treatment options.
