A Chiropractor Can Help With Your Arthritis

Arthritis, deterioration and pain in the joints, is a debilitating condition for many people. There are different types and presentations, and chriopractordifferent treatment options available. Most treatment options only treat symptoms however, not the cause, and provide only temporary, short-term relief. More and more people are turning to the chiropractic healing arts for safe and effective treatment of their arthritis. Read on to discover more about arthritis, chiropractic treatment and how it can help relieve you of your joint pain and increase your quality of life. 

What is arthritis?
Arthritis occurs most commonly as people age, and can be due to overuse and trauma, auto-immune disorders, or just genetics. Whatever the cause, the result is usually pain and decreased ability to use the arthritic joint. As the joint deteriorates, the body tries to build extra bone to provide support. These “bone spurs” can actually cause more severe problems depending on their location- for example, they can press on nerves and cause more pain or numbness and loss of movement. 

What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic treatment is based on two foundational principles: that the structure and condition of the body affects not only its function, but also its ability to heal itself, and that the mind and body relationship is also essential to self-healing. Chiropractors use a holistic approach to healing by focusing on your complete wellness so that your body can heal itself- the best way to treat the problem at its source. None of the physical systems (musculoskeletal, neurological, vascular, etc) can function alone- each depends on the other, and so the proper functioning of each is necessary for the proper function of all. In practice, this means your chiropractor can help ensure the proper alignment of your musculoskeletal system, develop nutrition and exercise plans, perform physiotherapy to restore joint mobility, and much more depending on your personal needs. 

How will it help me?
Keeping your spine aligned correctly can reduce musculoskeletal tension, and relieve pressure on nerves and joints. Not only can this relieve arthritis pain, but it can help increase circulation to the affected joints and allow better healing. Your chiropractor can also develop a personalized physiotherapy regimen that will strengthen muscles to provide more support to your affected joints, increasing mobility and decreasing pain. In addition, your chiropractor can help you improve your nutritional and emotional health- allowing you to fully enjoy your life despite the challenges of living with arthritis.
