Who has arthritis?

Both men and women, children and adults through out the age spectrum can suffer from arthritis. That's 50 million people in the United States alone, says the Arthritis Foundation. Plus, the disability that often results from both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis can be substantial, affecting the:

  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Elbows
  • Thoracic and lumbar spine
  • Hips
  • Knees
  • Ankles

While we all associate arthritis with advancing age, sports injuries, auto accidents, work-related injuries and even heredity contribute to the development of the signature pain and inflammation. As joints break down, nerves are affected (pinched), and fluid collects at the targeted joints. Bone spurs, or osteophytes, frequently occur with arthritis, too, as the body works to compensate for and to support arthritic joints.

Can chiropractic treatment help?

They use a very hands-on approach in treating arthritis, making use sure that your spine and associated nerves are functioning as well as possible.
