joint-pain-in-hand-sq-300Arthritis is a condition characterized by the degeneration and breakdown of joints due to various factors such as overuse, poor posture, lack of motion, accidents, injuries, genetics, lifestyle, and autoimmune reactions.

While some may associate arthritis primarily with hands, elbows, or knees, its occurrence varies depending on individual lifestyle and occupation. Whether you are a stonemason with arthritic hands or a former basketball player with worn-down knees, arthritis can manifest anywhere in the body.

Among the different types of arthritis, osteoarthritis is one of the most common forms that chiropractic care can effectively address. This progressive condition worsens over time if left untreated.

Recognizing the Symptoms

Some common symptoms of arthritis include stiffness, limited range of motion, and a dull, achy pain that is particularly noticeable in the morning. Nerve irritation or impingement caused by worn-down discs and tissues can also lead to numbness, tingling, and further discomfort. It is crucial to address these symptoms early to prevent further deterioration and increase overall comfort.

The Importance of Movement

According to research conducted by the Harvard School of Medicine, movement is vital when it comes to reducing the risks of arthritis. Restoring motion to joints is crucial in improving joint health and overall mobility. Chiropractic care can help reduce pain and stiffness and preserve joint function, allowing people to maintain an active and fulfilling lifestyle.

The Examination Process and Treatment Options

To accurately diagnose arthritis, an X-ray examination is often used to assess the extent of tissue damage and identify the affected areas. This information allows us to tailor treatment plans for each patient’s condition. For individuals with severe arthritis, standard adjustments may not be suitable.

However, alternative techniques like drop table adjustments or adjusting instruments can provide effective relief. The results of chiropractic care for arthritis can be significant, with noticeable improvements in range of motion, blood flow, circulation, and energy levels within three to six weeks.
