Logan Supports Arthritis Foundation’s Mission, Event

May 14, 2019 -- Arthritis―a disease that impacts more than 50 million Americans.

Every year, the number of children and adults affected by arthritis grows, making it the No. 1 cause of disability in our country.

May is recognized as National Arthritis Awareness Month. While there is currently no cure for most kinds of arthritis, there are many available therapies, including chiropractic care, to help treat and manage the pain associated with the disease.

Logan is proud to be a silver sponsor of this year’s Arthritis Foundation’s Walk to Cure Arthritis in St. Louis. The event will be held Friday, May 17, 2019 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Logan University, 1851 Schoettler Road, Chesterfield, Mo. 63017. Click here to register or donate.

Logan Professor D. Robert Kuhn, DC, DACBR, ART®, says eliminating or reducing challenges to a person’s system is important. “Eating less pro-inflammatory food and drink, getting plenty of sleep, and staying active are all helpful,” he said.

Adding nutritional support specifically rich in calcium, magnesium and trace minerals can also provide relief, says Logan Professor Brian Snyder, DC. This, he said, with the addition of lifestyle changes that keep patients moving through normal daily activities as well as low impact exercise, all aid in pain management.

Dr. Kuhn said for many who experience rheumatoid arthritis (RA), which causes inflammation in the joints, chiropractic care can be used to treat the affected joints with gentle mobilizing techniques during remission periods. He notes that direct treatment of the affected joints during periods of exacerbation should be avoided.
