Arthritis Q & A

What is arthritis?

Arthritis is an inflammatory joint condition that affects millions of Americans. Arthritis is an umbrella term for more than 100 different joint conditions that are characterized by joint tenderness, joint stiffness, swelling, limited range of motion, and pain.

What are the types of arthritis?

Each type of arthritis affects your body differently. A few of the most common types are:

  • Degenerative
  • Rheumatoid
  • Inflammatory
  • Metabolic
  • Infectious

With extensive testing and screening options, Dr. Cabrera pinpoints the type of arthritis you have and its root cause. In addition to a comprehensive hands-on examination, she may use stool, blood, and urine samples, as well as X-rays, ultrasounds, or CT scans to identify your condition.

What causes arthritis?

Each type of arthritis is triggered by a specific cause. Typically, wear and tear on your joints, autoimmune dysfunction, and aging are the main culprits.

How is arthritis treated?

To support your innate ability to heal, Dr. Cabrera and the team of skilled providers at Holistic Care Solutions use natural botanicals, homeopathic remedies, herbs, and carefully curated supplements to support your immune system.

Pain relief is immediate with traditional Chinese protocols like acupuncture and cupping. Craniosacral therapy is also a go-to method to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and improve your function and range of motion.

Are there any at-home methods to relieve my pain?

Dr. Cabrera diagnoses which type of arthritis you have and arms you with ways that you can minimize the pain and joint stiffness at home. She’ll teach you exercises to keep your joints limber and recommend options, like warm compresses, that alleviates arthritic flare-ups.

It’s especially important to incorporate all manner of fruits and vegetables into your diet. Regular exercise, such as walking or swimming, keeps your arthritis from advancing and prevents your joints from getting too stiff.
