Arthritis, typically diagnosed when inflammation of one or more joints occurs, can cause quite a bit of discomfort and stiff joints. Patients typically notice stiff joints earlier in the day, or after periods of inactivity, and reduce motion in the affected joint(s). There are many types of arthritis, but most fall into two categories: osteoarthritis and rheumatoid.
Chiropractic adjustments can be very helpful for patients with arthritis. Not only do the adjustment help improve joint mobility, but they also help improve the nervous system function in the body, enabling better symptom management. The goals of chiropractic adjustments for patients with arthritis include: improved lifestyle, better pain management, reduced inflammation, and better range of motion with the affected joints.
