Got Arthritis? How can chiropractic spinal treatments and floatation therapy help you to find relief?
Are you looking for a safe and effective way to ease the pain in your sore and aching joints caused by osteoarthritis? If so, Orange Chiro and Float Orange might be able to help you.
The term arthritis literally means inflammation of a joint and comes in many forms. The most common form of arthritis, osteoarthritis can manifest itself as aching joints. It can also make you feel a bit “creaky” after you get out of bed in the morning but your movement becomes easier as the day goes on until of course, you start to “tighten up” again towards the end of the day. A warm shower can alleviate your aches and pains temporarily.
Here at Orange Chiro, principle chiropractor, Dr. Mick Cornish treats quite a number of clients who’ve been diagnosed with osteoarthritis. Now, we won’t claim to “cure” your osteoarthritis because that’s just not realistic. However, with the treatment methods use at Orange Chiro, we might be able to help you increase the range of motion in your joints thus improving your ability to enjoy your family, social and work activities with greater comfort and confidence. In addition to the in-office treatments we offer, we’ll also review your lifestyle habits and integrate simple and effective movement, postural and stretching habits to help give you even greater relief for longer periods of time.
As you might know, my vision for the Orange Chiropractic Centre is to be known as the most trusted provider of treatment for any of the musculoskeletal conditions you experience during your life. In keeping with this philosophy, and in addition to the massage and yoga services we provide, you can now access our floatation therapy pod. You can learn more about floatation therapy by clicking here but essentially, heres how it works.
You’ll float effortlessly in 400 litres of water warmed to body temperature. Into this water we dissolve almost 400kg (yes, you read that correctly…four hundred kilograms) of high grade Epsom salts which give you great buoyancy. In fact, so much buoyancy that you can comfortably fall asleep while floating without concern of rolling over.
Not only will the Epsom salts keep you afloat but the magnesium in the salts is gently absorbed through the skin to provide amazing relief to your aching joints and muscles. This coupled with the decreased stress on your spine and joints while you’re floating means you can feel relief from the moment you start to float. But be warned, a session with Float Orange might also produce a particular side-effect; a calming of your mind … and that’s a great side-effect.
You see, as the magnesium is gently absorbed into your muscles and joints, it stimulates the release of serotonin which is a hormone that promotes rest and relaxation. So not only can you soothe your body, you can also calm your mind from the stress and busyness of your day.
Float Orange is located within the Orange Chiropractic Centre and is particularly suited for people who suffer from work & family related stress as well as sufferers of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia.
