How Can a Chiropractor Help Me Manage My Arthritis?, Manhattan, New York

Chiropractors help patients manage many conditions related to pain, including chronic pain caused by a broad range of sources. Although arthritis can’t be cured, its symptoms can be managed effectively through an individualized care plan. If you have this joint condition, discover how a chiropractor can help below.

What is Arthritis?

Arthritis is among the most widespread conditions in the U.S. With over 100 different types and more than 50 million adults afflicted, it impacts the daily lives of many individuals. Different types of the disease affect the body in unique ways. For instance, in degenerative types, including osteoarthritis, cartilage wears away and can weaken or wear away joints. Inflammatory types, such as rheumatoid arthritis, cause joint erosion as the immune system attacks healthy joints and causes erosion.

How Can a Chiropractor Help?

arthritisChiropractors employ a variety of techniques to provide relief for their patients, but one of the most effective methods applied specifically for arthritis is craniosacral therapy (CST). This safe, noninvasive treatment is often used as an alternative to prescription or over-the-counter pain medications. While it can be used to manage both acute and chronic condition, it has become a preferred therapy for degenerative joint diseases.

CST is a gentle technique in which a soft touch is used to apply no more than 5 grams of pressure to release tension in the joints and the surrounding soft tissues. Chiropractors use their hands to pick up on the body’s subtle rhythms, which helps them determine where restrictions lie so they can address each patient’s unique needs. Releasing this tension can relieve pain and improve joint function, thereby contributing to an improved quality of life for those with arthritis.
