What Is Arthritis

Arthritis is characterized by painful joint inflammation. The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis, also known as Degenerative Joint Disease, is associated with wear and tear of the joint after a specific injury or repetitive use. It usually progresses slowly over time. Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory autoimmune disorder in which the immune system attacks the joints. RA causes swelling around the joints which can eventually lead to joint deformity and bone erosion. RA can also damage other parts of the body.

Chiropractic Treatment For Arthritis

The good news for arthritis sufferers is that at any stage, proper care can have a large impact on healing and healthy aging. Specific chiropractic adjustments can help to alleviate joint pain and improve function. By restoring proper alignment and motion to the affected joints and those around them, patients often see a decrease in inflammation, a larger range of movement, and less discomfort. Not only can specific chiropractic care help with current arthritis challenges, but it can also prevent future flare-ups.
