Arthritis Treatment

If you are one of the many people who has been told by their doctor that they have arthritis, there is excellent arthritis treatment available that can help you to manage its painful side effects. Arthritic pain is so widespread that sometimes people with arthritis come to believe that it’s just one of those things that you have to put up with. Your grandparents had it, your parents had it and now it’s your turn to live with this pain. This is simply not the case today. The providers at Kentucky Pain Institute and Spurlock Chiropractic Centre have been trained in several methods of arthritis treatment that will bring you relief and help you to function throughout your daily routine with much less pain.

When you come to Kentucky Pain Institute and Spurlock Chiropractic Centre in Morehead for arthritis treatment, you will be receiving care close to home. This makes such a difference when you don’t feel like driving a distance to a medical office or facility that is complicated to navigate. Our excellent team of professionals have all of the expertise you would expect at a larger population center without the hassle of travel. To a great extent, your arthritis treatment should take approximately 30 minutes door-to-door. To be able to receive excellent arthritis treatment without setting aside a full day makes relieving your pain much more simple.

Arthritis is an inflammation within a joint that causes pain and stiffness, often worsening with age. Providers at KY Pain Institute & Spurlock Chiropractic Centre are trained in several methods of arthritis treatment.The major joints treated for arthritis at our facility include the spine, hip, the knee and the shoulder, commonly referred to as osteoarthritis:

  • Osteoarthritis of the hip, also known as degenerative joint disease, results from the breakdown of cartilage in the hip joint.  Steroid injections into the hip joint are an arthritis treatment that works to reduce the inflammation causing your pain and swelling.
  • Osteoarthritis of the knee is often treated with steroid injections and tends to bring our patients dramatic relief from pain and swelling. We have several methods for guiding our doctors as they inject this relieving medication, including fluoroscopic guidance and ultrasound guidance. Viscosupplementation treatment for knee arthritis injects hyaluronic acid, a thick gel-like substance, into your knee joint, replenishing the lost fluid that has caused the bones of the knee to rub together.
  • Osteoarthritis of the shoulder, also called degenerative joint disease, can result from aging, but it can also set in after traumatic injury to the shoulder. Sometimes osteoarthritis of the shoulder results from having worked in a job that caused stress to the shoulder.  This breakdown of cartilage is both painful and restrictive with loss of motion in the shoulder. Arthritis treatment of the shoulder may include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications and corticosteroid injections.

Come to Kentucky Pain Institute and Spurlock Chiropractic Centre and experience the dedication and commitment of every member of our staff. We have been treating patients in the Morehead area for many years and people trust the care that they receive from us.

If you are suffering from arthritis, pain medication is not the answer for you. Pain medication is not the solution: it keeps you from being able to carry on with your usual activities of daily living and can easily result in substance abuse and addiction. When you come to our facility for arthritis treatment, we will listen to you to understand the location of your pain, the strength of your pain and the restrictions that arthritis has caused you. We have a long history of restoring our patients to their productive lives. Give us a call at (606)784-1115 or Toll Free at (800)318-4444 to set up a visit and learn about our arthritis treatments.

Patient Reviews

Through manipulation, stimulation, traction, exercise, muscle shots and epidurals, in a short period of time, I went from only being able to stand for an hour at a time to being able to work a full day. This is a much better alternative than medications and I am truly grateful for the fast, friendly and professional service I have been given.
