Chiropractic Care For Arthritis
An Intuitive First Step Determining Relief From Arthritis Pain and Irritation
The Perception of Arthritis and How to Manage your Arthritis Pain with Chiropractic Care.
What is Arthritis?
Though common, arthritis is one of the American’s most abused diseases. Arthritis is inflammation of one or more joints, which can cause pain, irritation, and stiffness throughout joints of the body. More common symptoms of arthritis and joint inflammation include swelling, joint pain, and stiffness, and decreased range of motion (this is typically worsening with age).
In reality, arthritis is not a single disease. There are over 100 different types of the actual disease, making it the #1 cause of America’s disability that is affecting more than 50 million people to this day. Nevertheless, there are two main types of arthritis that can gain from routine chiropractic care and they are:
Osteoarthritis – A degenerative disorder affecting flexible joint cartilage
Rheumatoid Arthritis – A chronic inflammatory disorder in joints
In both cases, self-care combined with non-invasive, non-addictive treatment, should serve as your first line of defense to manage and relieve pain and discomfort.
How Can Chiropractic Care Assist Those with Arthritis?
Chiropractic care is a great way to get a handle on and release the pain that is caused by arthritis. Regular chiropractic care provides arthritis patients with a safe, non-invasive, non-addictive alternative to prescription medication a.k.a. opioids or over-the-counter pain medications (OTCs), which are the most commonly prescribed to patients to assist them in getting a handle on their pain.
Chiropractors deliver a gentle, non-invasive, non-addictive therapy, known as a chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments are to reduce joint limitations or misalignments in the spine and other joints in the body in an attempt to reduce inflammation and improve the function of both the affected joints and nervous system. By increasing joint mobility and improving your nervous system function and spinal health, your body has the ability to better manage symptoms caused by osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.
Below are some of the health benefits chiropractic care and chiropractic adjustments can provide to arthritis patients:
- Reduced pain and discomfort
- Decreased inflammation
- Improved range of motion
- Improved flexibility
- Increased activity and lifestyle
