Chiropractic Care for Arthritis

Are you wondering how chiropractic can reduce arthritis pain? You’re not alone. Millions of people suffer from arthritis. Though common, arthritis is often misunderstood. This disease, with its painful joint inflammation, swelling, and stiffness, usually rears its head during middle age and grows worse with each passing year.

However, arthritis is more complicated than its basic name suggests. It’s not just one disease. Doctors are aware of more than 100 unique types of arthritis – and many levels of severity. In fact, arthritis is the leading disability cause in the U.S.A. and afflicts over 50 million people.

If you have arthritis, you know how much it can hurt. But did you know how chiropractic can reduce arthritis pain? There are 2 major kinds of arthritis that regular chiropractic can help: Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis.

For both types, your at-home care can be supplemented by gentle, non-addictive treatment to help manage pain and discomfort.

A Word of Caution

This may come as a surprise, but chiropractic care isn’t for everyone – especially patients with arthritis. Because rheumatoid arthritis is painful due to inflammation in joints, rather than misaligned vertebrae. Depending on your case, medication may actually be the best option.

In fact, if you’ve been taking medication already, you should be cautious about chiropractic care. Some rheumatoid arthritis medications can cause side effects that severely limit your ability to receive chiropractic treatment. These medications often result in deteriorated bone density. Normal chiropractic adjustment may result in fractured bones.

Protecting your spine is our first concern. Talk to your doctor before seeing a chiropractor.

How Chiropractic Can Reduce Arthritis Pain

When your arthritis hurts most, chiropractic care can step in with relief and pain management. Based on your condition, your chiropractor may be able to safely give you an alternative to those addictive pain meds. If approved for treatment, you’ll receive gentle adjustments to lessen painful joint restrictions.

With every patient suffering from arthritis, we hope to reduce inflammation and increase the function of the joints and nervous system alike. This helps your body to respond to symptoms better and start to manage your arthritis on its own.

Besides the reduction of pain and inflammation, you may also gain:

  • Better range of motion
  • More flexibility
  • Higher desire to be active
