Arthritis

we can manage chiropractic arthritis treatments

Over the years we have helped our patients manage their pain and joint discomfort relating to arthritis.

Arthritis is any inflammation of a joint. There are over 2,000 types with the most common being osteoarthritis (OA) which people often refer to as simply “arthritis” or “wear and tear.” This is the type of arthritis that Chiropractic can help relieve.

OA is a degenerative joint disease as the result of “wear and tear” whereas RA (rheumatoid arthritis) is an autoimmune disease (body attacks its own tissue) causing joints to become inflamed, causing scarring within the joints and deformity.

manageable arthritus conditions

Causes:

Wear and tear coupled with genetic factors and a range of disease processes may be the cause of your arthritis. Effectively managing a complaint of arthritis requires an accurate diagnosis of the cause. This is our priority at Regenerate Chiropractic so we can effectively treat your complaint. Regular Chiropractic treatment together with an exercise program is may be effective for specific forms of arthritis, and it is believed that by keeping the joints mobile, progression may be slowed down or even prevented. Some have argued that regular treatment may even help prevent osteoarthritic changes from occurring in the first place. A Chiropractor may adjusts the affected joints to provide pain relief and slow the progression of arthritic change.

Symptoms of osteoarthritis may include joint pain and progressive stiffness that develops gradually. Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis may include painful swelling, inflammation, and stiffness in the fingers, arms, legs, and wrists occurring in the same joints on both sides of the body, especially upon awakening.
