Chiropractic is the natural option for finding relief from arthritis pain and discomfort. Arthritis pain is well managed with routine chiropractic care. But, what is arthritis? Arthritis is unfortunately very common, but it is also one of the most commonly misunderstood diseases affecting millions of Americans. Arthritis is characterized by inflammation of one or more joints of the body (including the spine), and it causes pain, stiffness and achiness. There are many different types of arthritis, and it is the leading cause of disability in America. One of the most common types of arthritis which is well managed by chiropractic care is Osteoarthritis, which is a degenerative disorder affecting flexible joint cartilage.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help Those with Arthritis?
Chiropractic doctors provide a gentle, non-addictive therapy known as the chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments bring motion back to joint restrictions in the spine and other joints of the body in an effort to reduce inflammation and improve function. It is common for arthritis patients to experience improved flexibility, improved range of motion, reduced pain and discomfort, increased activity and improved lifestyle.
