If you find yourself with creaking, aching joints, you may be suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. When you need help with rheumatoid arthritis, turn to RedRiver Health and Wellness Center. We provide rheumatoid arthritis care in Boise, Las Vegas, and other locations. This autoimmune disorder is extremely common, especially among the elderly, though younger people may get it, too.

Risk Factors for Rheumatoid Arthritis

Experts are not entirely sure why some individuals develop rheumatoid arthritis. Years of research, however, suggest that the people most prone to this condition have:

  • Been exposed to harmful environmental factors, such as smoking or pollution
  • Experienced major hormonal balance disruptions
  • An imbalance of intestinal microbes
  • A genetic predisposition to rheumatoid arthritis

The Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease characterized by the chronic inflammation of the joint linings.

This causes mild to severe pain that not only affects the joints, but may travel through the body as well. Like all autoimmune disorders, the immune system is mistakenly attacking your body’s own tissues.

Rheumatoid arthritis may turn into a debilitating disease if left unmanaged, which greatly affects the quality of life. It may severely limit your day-to-day activities.

Some of the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis may include, but are not limited to:

  • Painful joints
  • Deformed joints
  • Hard bumps or nodules under the skin on the arms
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Dry mouth
  • Eye inflammation and discharge
  • Fever
  • Anemia
  • Chest pain when breathing

About Us

One of the main goals at RedRiver Health and Wellness Center is to work with patients to improve their health, wellbeing, and quality of life. The RedRiver Health and Wellness Center team is passionate about helping ailing patients achieve optimal health, and we truly care about the success of each and every patient.

RedRiver chiropractic physicians are great advocates for prescribing physicians and endocrinologists. In fact, many of our patients see their prescribing physician(s) more frequently while under our care than they would otherwise. Our goal is not to replace our patients’ primary care physicians and specialists, but to complement their care by providing patients with nutrition, diet, lifestyle and educational support and strategies. This way, patients can learn to manage their symptoms more efficiently. We have developed rewarding relationships with many prescribing physicians across the country, and we strive to continue to building relationships with MDs, DOs, NPs, and NMDs. When health professionals can work together for the benefit of the patient’s health, it becomes a win/win situation for the one who matters most—the patient.
