Arthritis is inflammation of joints that affects both young and old people. It causes damage to the joints and can also affect the soft tissues of the body such as the ligaments, lungs, and heart valves. The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis (OA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and gout. It is especially common in people older than 55 years. Chiropractic care is found to be beneficial for people suffering from arthritis. It  helps to relieve stress on the spine and allows the body to restore itself to a greater level of health.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help Relieve Arthritis

Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation. It is a good pain relief treatment for muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissue, such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons.

The inflammation in arthritis can be severe and medication is necessary to avoid joint destruction. However, chiropractic care has been very useful in controlling the symptoms of arthritis. Most arthritic conditions benefit from Chiropractic Care, especially Osteoarthritis (OA).

It helps patients suffering from arthritis by identifying and rectifying the misalignments that are present in the joints. They do this using very gentle and specific adjustments. When the body is properly aligned, the pressure is taken off the nerves. This helps to reduce the symptoms of arthritis.

Chiropractic care also helps a patient by taking the stress off the nervous system. The body gets to rest relax and heal and is restored to proper functionality.
