About Arthritis

Arthritis is an inflammatory condition that swells up areas especially joints of the body. It is common to feel soreness and a loss of overall mobility within the joint. As people age arthritis worsens overtime and can have an affect on a persons overall functionality. There are many different types of arthritis ranging from autoimmune to inflammatory arthritis each with their own symptomatology.

What Causes Arthritis?

Arthritis is caused by the bodies autoimmune system attacking itself. Usually it can be a genetic health concern although it can occur from other problems such as gout. The most common type of arthritis is osteoarthritis which causes bone degeneration and is more common in females. Usually stressors from work and prolonged activities can have an effect on joint inflammation although the driving force of arthritis always comes down to the overuse of joints.

Can Chiropractic Care Help?

In Short, Yes! Chiropractic Care is a great way to help manage flareups especially with the surrounding musculature of the painful joint. Chiropractors are able to mobilise areas and enhance overall mobility in the affect region. It is to be noted that although symptoms may not go away for ever the function of the body would be a key change with the use of chiropractic care.
