Arthritis is a common condition that affects the joints, causing pain, stiffness, and limited range of motion. The symptoms of arthritis can vary depending on the type and severity of the condition but may include joint pain, stiffness, swelling, and a reduced range of motion. There are many types of arthritis, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriatic arthritis. Chiropractic for arthritis can reduce joint pain and allow one to live independently.
While Chiropractic care cannot cure arthritis, it can be a treatment option for managing symptoms and improving joint function. Chiropractors are trained to assess and diagnose musculoskeletal conditions, including arthritis. Through a combination of manual therapies, such as spinal manipulation and soft tissue therapy, as well as rehabilitative exercises, Chiropractors can help manage pain and improve joint function.
By addressing the underlying cause of arthritis, Chiropractic care can help improve overall joint health. During an initial consultation, a Chiropractor will perform a thorough evaluation to determine the cause and severity of arthritis. Based on this assessment, the Chiropractor will create a customised treatment plan that may include Chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and corrective exercises.
