Inflammation is a process by which the body’s white blood cells and substances they produce protect us from infection with foreign organisms, such as bacteria and viruses.

When pro-inflammatory mediators are released from damaged tissue or when a component of the body is mistaken for a foreign object, the immune system attacks with an influx of white blood cells and neurotransmitters that cause pain fibers to send signals to the brain.

Inflammation is a common cause of chronic pain such as arthritis, gout, Lyme disease, osteoarthritis, plantar fascitis, post-traumatic arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
