An Overview of a Holistic Inflammation Test from Meek Chiropractic
At Meek Chiropractic, our goal is to provide exceptional healthcare to everyone who lives in the Springfield, MO, area. That is the goal of each chiropractor in our office. People often come to see us because they are experiencing pain, discomfort, and dysfunction. One of the most common reasons why people feel pain is inflammation. With the help of our team, we can do an inflammation test and help you evaluate your treatment options.
Signs of Inflammation
If someone has inflammation throughout his or her body, the body is reacting to something. The most common reasons why someone has inflammation include injuries and illnesses. Some of the most common signs of inflammation include:
- • Pain located either in an isolated area or spread throughout the body
- • Swelling that might be located at the site of an injury
- • Injured or damaged areas turning red
- • When someone places their hand over an area with inflammation, that area is going to feel warm
- • Some people may even run a fever
Inflammation can present differently in different people. The appearance and spread will also vary with the cause and severity of the injury or illness. It is important to quantify the amount of inflammation that someone might have.
The Holistic Inflammation Test from Meek Chiropractic
At Meek Chiropractic, we practice something called functional medicine. This allows us to take a holistic approach to healthcare, including the diagnosis and treatment of issues such as inflammation. With our inflammation test, we figure out exactly how much inflammation is occurring in your body. Then, we will figure out where this inflammation is coming from. We will take a complete history and physical, looking for possible causes of your inflammation. Finally, we will come up with a treatment plan to address your inflammation. This treatment plan may include chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, or even changes in diet. Trust us to help you with your inflammation.
