What is Arthritis?

And How Can a Chiropractor Help You if You are suffering from it?

Arthritis is any inflammation of a joint.  There are over 2,000 types with the most common being osteoarthritis (OA) which people often refer to as simply “arthritis” or “wear and tear.”  This is the type of arthritis that Chiropractic can help relieve.

OA is a degenerative joint disease as the result of “wear and tear” whereas RA (rheumatoid arthritis) is an autoimmune disease (body attacks its own tissue) causing joints to become inflamed, causing scarring within the joints and deformity.

WHO DOES IT AFFECT?

OA mainly affects the weight bearing joints e.g. the hips and knees as well as the joints in the hands and the spine. Although it may strike at any age, the older you get the more likely you are to get it.

HOW IS IT MANAGED?

Medically, arthritis is commonly managed with non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) which don’t stop the disease progression, but may relieve the pain.

Unfortunately, these drugs may be placing many patients in high-risk categories for developing gastric erosion, peptic-ulcers and kidney damage to name but a few.

Regular Chiropractic treatment together with an exercise program is considered to be effective and it is believed that by keeping the joints mobile, progression may be slowed down or even prevented. Some have argued that regular treatment may even help prevent osteoarthritic changes from occurring in the first place.  A Chiropractor adjusts the affected joints to provide pain relief and slow the progression of arthritic change.
