Chiropractic care is known as an effective treatment for arthritis. One of the most common types of arthritis is osteoarthritis, which is a degenerative joint disease caused by wear and tear of the cartilage in the joints. Osteoarthritis usually occurs in the spine, hips, knees and ankles and is more common with old age around 70, but can happen to younger adults.
Chiropractic care is commonly used to treat back pain. In general, chiropractic care targets musculoskeletal and nervous system disorders. Pain and stiffness in the joints and muscles associated with the effects of cancer treatment can benefit from chiropractic care.
