What is Arthritis?

Arthritis is a degenerative disease that causes damage to your joints. Most arthritis occurs with age as a result of a lifetime of wear and tear on the joints. As we get older, repetitive use of a joint can cause the joint surfaces to wear down, resulting in increased friction inside the joint which in turn can cause inflammation. This type of arthritis is called osteoarthritis, and it’s the most common type. Less often, arthritis can occur when the immune system “malfunctions” and begins attacking the tissues that line the joints. This type of arthritis is called rheumatoid arthritis. Arthritis can also develop in a joint that’s been injured. 

What symptoms does arthritis cause?

Arthritis causes symptoms like:

  • joint pain
  • dull aching around a joint, especially when weight is applied or when the joint is moved
  • joint stiffness and decreased range of motion in a joint
  • swelling around a joint
  • tenderness around a joint
  • radiating pain or other symptoms, like chronic headaches (especially when the neck joints are involved) or arm or leg pain (when other areas of the spine are involved)

Symptoms can vary based on the extent of the disease and which joint is affected.

How does a chiropractor treat arthritis?

Chiropractors are skilled in the treatment of musculoskeletal diseases and conditions, including arthritis. Because arthritis affects the joints, it can also have an impact on the nerves as the pass through and around the joints, especially in the spine which serves as a conduit for all the nerves traveling from the brain to other areas of the body. Many patients with arthritis find spinal adjustments can be very effective in relieving chronic back and neck pain, as well as headaches and radiating pain and in the legs and arms.

In addition, complementary treatments like therapeutic massage and gentle stretching exercises can help relieve inflammation and improve joint function so you can enjoy greater mobility without nagging pain. Massage also stimulates circulation and lymphatic drainage to reduce swelling and promote natural healing in your joints and other areas. Our chiropractic team works closely with each patient to tailor treatment plans for each person's unique needs for optimal relief of their symptoms.
