Think you have Arthritis? Can We Help?
Arthritis is a term used to describe inflammation and pain in the joints. It is a common condition that affects people of all ages, but is more common in older adults. There are many types of arthritis, but the most common are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that occurs when the cartilage that cushions the joints wears down over time. This can cause pain, stiffness, and limited mobility in the affected joint. It is most commonly found in weight-bearing joints such as the hips, knees, and spine.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that occurs when the immune system attacks the lining of the joints, causing inflammation and pain. It can affect any joint in the body, and can also cause fatigue, fever, and weight loss.
Arthritis can be managed with a variety of treatments, including medications, physiotherapy, and lifestyle changes.
Chiropractic care can also be an effective complementary therapy to help manage the symptoms of arthritis. Chiropractic care can help alleviate the symptoms of arthritis by reducing inflammation, improving joint mobility and flexibility, and reducing pain. Chiropractors use a variety of techniques, such as spinal adjustments, soft tissue therapy, and stretching, to restore joint function and relieve pressure on the affected joints. They may also recommend exercises and lifestyle modifications, such as weight loss and dietary changes, to help manage the symptoms of arthritis. While chiropractic care cannot cure arthritis, it can be an effective complementary therapy to help manage pain and improve quality of life for those with the condition. It is important to consult with a qualified chiropractor to discuss your individual case and determine the best treatment plan for you.
