Arthritis is a very wide medical term that covers over 200 different diseases. This is because arthritis has to do with your joints or places where bone connects.
Common Joints that Suffer From Arthritis Include:
All important areas of your body that you need for daily activity. Arthritis is one of the most commonly diagnosed diseases affecting every 1 in 5 adults in America. While it is less common in youth, it becomes more common as you get older and your joints get worn down from exercise and daily life. Arthritis is one of the largest causes of joint pain in the United States and beyond.
Causes that increase your risk for arthritis are:
- Being Female
- Hereditary Factors
- Excessive Injuries
- Various Infections
- Intensive Work
Arthritis is uncomfortable and even painful for some to live with. While there are solutions that, over time, can assist you with combatting this discomfort, chiropractic care can help offer immediate relief through adjustments.
Chiropractic Care for Arthritis
Chiropractic can mainly assist with the two primary forms of arthritis: Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disorder affecting mostly the flexible joint cartilage while Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder in the joints.
Through safe, non-invasive, and natural adjustments your chiropractor can offer you a safe alternative to prescription opioids and over the counter pain medications that are commonly prescribed to patients in an effort to assist them with their arthritis. Adjustments can help to reduce joint inflammation and improve function to both your treated joint and the body’s central nervous system.
Chiropractic Adjustments for Arthritis Patients can:
- Decrease Inflammation
- Reduce Discomfort or Pain
- Increase Your Flexibility
- Improve Your Range of Motion
