What is Arthritis?

Arthritis is inflammation of one or more joints, which can cause pain, discomfort and stiffness throughout the joints and the body. Common symptoms of arthritis include pain, stiffness, swelling and decreased range of motion. These symtoms typically worsen with age.

 

How can chiropractic care help?

There are two main types of arthritis that benefit from routine chiropractic care: osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disorder affecting joint cartilage. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder in joints. In both of these cases, chiropractic adjustments (treatments) can help to relieve the pain and discomfort of arthirits.

Chiropractic care provides arthritic patients with a safe, non-invesive, non-addictive alternative to prescription opioids or over-the-counter pain medications, which are commonly prescribed to manage arthritic pain.

 

Benefits from chiropractic care include:

  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Improved range of motion
  • Improved flexibility
  • Increased activity and lifestyle
