Arthritis occurs when one or more joints becomes inflamed, resulting in pain, swelling, stiffness, and limited movement. Joint pain and arthritis are almost synonymous, since over 100 different types of arthritis lead to and may be referred to as joint pain.
If you have arthritis or think you may have arthritis, you may experience the following arthritis symptoms:
Reduced ability to move the joint
Redness of the Skin Around a Joint
Joint Stiffness (especially in the morning)
Warmth in and Around a Joint
Using chiropractic therapy for arthritis can begin getting the body's joints and muscles to move more freely. The chiropractic adjustment begins to align the body, allowing movement with fewer restrictions, reducing or eliminating the need for pain-relieving medications.
Chiropractic therapy for arthritis should be used as a regularly as both a treatment and prevention for arthritis, lessening its damaging effects. Chiropractic therapy used as a prevention is probably the most crucial benefit in treating the disease. Along with regular adjustments, other lifestyle changes and therapies should be implemented including a change in eating habits and regular exercise. Maintaining a proper weight and a healthy immune system are important factors in limiting the amount of devastating effects of arthritis--especially osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Many practitioners believe maintaining the body’s alignment via chiropractic therapy for arthritis will help offset the health problems that often accompany this disease.
