What it is:
Arthritis is inflammation of the joints. In your body, cartilage protects your joints by absorbing impact. Cartilage allows you to move freely, smoothly and without pain. When cartilage is lacking, your bones rub together, making it painful for you to use that particular joint.
How chiropractic can help:
Specific adjustments and lifestyle modifications can reduce irritation and inflammation in the joints, nerves and throughout the body. Extra strain, aging and inflammation can occur when the spine and joints are out of their normal positions. Chiropractic care looks to realign the spinal bones to normalize the neurological response. This process naturally boosts the healing response needed to treat arthritis.
