What is arthritis?

Arthritis is simply inflammation of the joint. When the joints swell for a long period of time, pressure is created which is causes pain. If left alone, the joints are damaged and destroyed over time. 

There are also different types of arthritis such as rheumatic, psoriatic and degenerative. Degenerative is the most common.

What can a Chiropractor do for arthritis?

Chiropractors work with joints of the spine and extremities. When inflammation is present, certain chemicals are released and begin to deposit calcium in the joint. This causes bone spurs and other problems that causes the joint to break down. 

Arthritis can’t be cured, even by chiropractic. Chiropractic care simply prevents the damage that arthritis creates. If a joint is fixated and out of alignment, it is not working the way it should. The stuck or uneven surfaces will begin to grind. This grinding can lead to inflammation and arthritis. If left untreated, joint damage will result. 

A Crucial Time Frame

Allowing for proper alignment and function can stop the process that was causing arthritis. Studies have shown that when a joint is stuck for seven days or longer, it causes microtears in the disc. This means that the disc is breaking down and decaying. 

A chiropractor will make sure your joints are never fixated for more than those seven days. It is recommended that arthritic patients come see a chiropractor regularly for personalized recommendations.
