Oh, the aching joints! Arthritis is inflammation of the joints and if you have arthritis, you know firsthand how painful it can be. The tissue around the joints can cause pain and discomfort as well.
Arthritis is very common. Its symptoms can include pain, swelling, and stiffness. Although there are different forms of arthritis, I am a firm believer that chiropractic care can help. By using manipulation in chiropractic care, inflammation can decrease over time. As I’m sure you already know, you won’t instantly be completely healed. That’s with any care you receive though, not just chiropractic care.
It is true that when dealing with a patient who has arthritis, more gentle techniques may be used to prevent any discomfort. With continued use of chiropractic care, you also relieve the stiffness that comes from arthritis. How? With manipulation, you increase the mobility of your joints. With increased mobility, the stiffness starts to lessen.
Doesn’t it sound nice to have your mobility back in your joints? Let’s face it; none of us want to start slowing down! The goal is to decrease your inflammation and increase your mobility.
