Arthritis is a joint pain or joint disease which causes pain, joint inflammation and swelling. People with arthritis have a hard time staying active or doing exercise because of their condition. When you visit a chiropractor for arthritis, you will most often be told of the importance of exercising because of its ability to relieve the pain, inflammation and swelling.
If you have received or are receiving chiropractic care, you have probably wondered what a popping sound or sounds were during treatment. Although there is really no clear explanation, it is highly believed that either a bone is out of place and the pop sounds means it was just realigned or a stiff joint has been unstiffened.
For neck pain, many people will decide to go with pain relief medication. Although pain medication can help ease neck pain, it will most likely only be temporary. There are chiropractic techniques that can help. These techniques can be more effective than pain medication because they focus on joint motion and reducing neck tightness.
