Chiropractic Care And Osteoarthritis

Chiropractic Care for Osteoarthritis
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.

How Chiropractic Care Treats Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis can cause pain, stiffness and a reduced range of motion. Common treatment for osteoarthritis are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs which alleviate pain, but don’t prevent progression and actually have side effects.
Chiropractic care can be a more effective treatment because although more research is needed, it can help prevent the progression of arthritis. Chiropractic care also helps improve muscle and joint function, which helps relieve osteoarthritis symptoms. In general, spinal adjustments improve nervous system function, relieve muscle tension and increase range of motion, which are all effective in relieving the symptoms of osteoarthritis. Chiropractors can also recommend dietary changes to help reduce inflammation and pain.
