Arthritis

Do you have osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis? If you do, you might be surprised to learn that chiropractic care can help manage your symptoms and increase the range of motion of the joints that are affected by the condition.

Understanding Arthritis

Arthritis causes joint pain, stiffness and loss of range of motion in the affected joints. Individuals typically experience increased symptoms in the morning or after extended periods of sitting, standing or laying down. Chiropractic care treatments that help with arthritis include manual and instrument adjustments, corrective exercises and lifestyle advice that can help reduce pain, inflammation and joint dysfunction.

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis – Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that causes chronic, wide-spread joint inflammation. This is because the immune system attacks the joints as if they were a bacteria or virus. Individuals with RA may also experience fatigue and low-grade fevers.
  • Osteoarthritis – Osteoarthritis is sometimes referred to as Degenerative Joint Disease. This occurs due to wear and tear on the joints and is considered an age-related condition. Primary joints affected include the hips, knees, neck, lower back and hands and fingers. Individuals typically experience joint stiffness and pain as well as joint swelling.
