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 cartilage lining 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.
