Arthritis is a condition that produces pain at the joints. In the most common
cases, it is either an autoimmune disorder (Osteoarthritis) or occurs when the
the surfaces of the joints wear out (Rheumatoid arthritis). Arthritis causes the
joints to swell, resulting in pain and stiffness, loss of range of motion
especially in the hands, feet, hips and spine.
The holistic approach of chiropractic care focuses on relieving
pressure along the joints to help increase the range of motion, helping
to relieve pain and pressure buildup along the joints. With chiropractic
care, treatments enable the body to improve the range of motion with
fewer restrictions. Chiropractic care also focuses on lifestyle
adjustments to focus on overall health to reduce pain and help eliminate
the need for pain medications. Some of theses treatments may include:
exercise, massage therapy, weight loss and other alternatives to address
accompanying arthritis issues.
