Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints that causes swelling, pain, stiffness, fatigue, and other very difficult symptoms for many people. There are more than 200 distinct varieties of arthritis today. The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriatic arthritis. Arthritis primarily causes damage to the joints, but it may also cause damage to the lungs, the valves in the heart, and the connective ligaments in the body. Arthritis is so common today that it is the main cause of disability in people who are older than 55.
The chiropractic approach to arthritis treatment can vary according to the type of arthritis and the patient’s individual symptoms. Gentle adjustments to the spine are often extremely effective in improving overall body function and in making patients feel better. Additionally, laser treatments, heat therapy, ice therapy, and other physical therapy modalities may be used for pain relief in arthritis patients. The chiropractor can also provide lifestyle counseling that may help the patient get additional relief. For example, dietary changes may be very effective in relieving arthritis symptoms when combined with other chiropractic treatments. Arthritis patients may also benefit from prescribed exercises and stretches that are specifically designed to improve overall strength and endurance levels.
Pain relief and improved range of motion are some of the main goals for chiropractic arthritis treatment. In many cases, the patient hopes to reduce or even eliminate the need for anti-inflammatory medication. This is often possible, but it is important for the patient’s medical doctor and chiropractor to work together on a care plan to make sure that the arthritis is addressed fully and effectively. With proper treatment, symptoms can be effectively managed, and they may also slow the progression of the arthritis.
