Lifting Expectations Beyond Limitations

Helping You Find Success With Inflammatory Care

Inflammation is part of the body’s defense system that plays a vital role in the healing process.

     Virtually everything that we treat in Physical Therapy is connected to one of the two types of inflammatory categories. Acute inflammation is caused when one suffers from an injury to parts of the body as well as when cells are invaded by bacteria, viruses, or other organisms that cause  infections. Acute inflammation starts immediately and usually will resolve between 2-6 weeks. 

 

There are 5 key signs of Acute inflammation:

Pain

May be continuous or when touching the affected area.

Redness

This is caused by increased blood flow to the area.

Loss of function/movement

Difficulty moving your joints, difficulty breathing, loss of sense of smell.

Heat

Caused by increased blood flow making the affected area feel warm.

Swelling

Fluid buildup in the area of inflammation.

Chronic inflammation can lead to more long-term serious debilitating effects on one’s body.
     Persistent acute inflammation can eventually lead to chronic inflammation. Genetic factors also play a role in chronic inflammation. Certain biomarkers in ones blood, called C-reactive protein, indicate inflammation in your body. This biomarker is usually higher in older people and those with conditions such as diabetes, obesity, cancer and other disease processes. Certain factors that may increase your risk of chronic inflammation are stress, sleep disturbances, smoking, a diet high in fats and sugars, excessive alcohol, and a sedentary lifestyle.
     Auto Immune diseases are when your own immune system mistakenly attacks normal healthy tissue. Diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriasis, diabetes type 1, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease such as Chron’s disease and ulcerative colitis are associated with chronic inflammation. Other diseases associated with chronic inflammation include atherosclerosis, asthma, some cancers, hay fever and sinusitis. 
     We at Rise Above Physical Therapy strongly believe that controlling and reducing inflammation plays a vital role in your injuries recovery as well as improving your overall health and condition. Rise Above Physical Therapy will educate you on lifestyle changes necessary to reduce your inflammation through exercise regimens, recommendations regarding herbal supplements, and Anti inflammatory dietary suggestions.
