Inflammation

Dr. Jimenez Chiropractic and Functional Medicine Inflammation Team. Inflammation is part of the body’s defense system that plays a role in healing. It refers to the body’s process of fighting:

  • Infections
  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • Injuries
  • Toxins

This is all done so the body can heal itself. When something damages the cells, the body releases chemicals that trigger a response from the immune system.

It plays a critical role in healing, but chronic inflammation can increase the risk of various diseases, including:

  • Cancers
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Periodontitis
  • Hay fever

It can result from different musculoskeletal disorders. This includes:

  • Autoimmune disorders – example, rheumatoid arthritis
  • Infections

When inflammation affects a joint, fluid can accumulate inside the joint. This can cause pain, swelling, and decreased range of motion.
