Osteoarthritis Causes, Symptoms, and Effects
There are many different conditions associated with arthritis, or chronic joint inflammation. These conditions can be caused by everything from autoimmune dysfunction to uric acid accumulation in the joints. In the case of osteoarthritis, the most common cause is simple wear and tear combined with natural, age-related changes.
As your joints continue to take a beating, the cartilage between the bone ends starts to deteriorate, creating extra friction within the joint. At the same time, your joints may lose some of their ability to lubricate themselves. This natural degeneration may be accelerated if you overburden your joints through heavy use (as in athletic activity), obesity, or spinal imbalances that distribute your weight unevenly.
Osteoarthritis symptoms typically include redness, swelling, stiffness, and bony lumps in the joints. you may also feel an unpleasant grinding sensation when you move the joint. This form of arthritis tends to feel better when you are at rest, at least early on. as it advances, you may feel round-the-clock discomfort that limits your ability (or willingness) to get around or perform everyday tasks.
How Our Chiropractor Provides Joint Pain Relief
Although osteoarthritis is a chronic (and technically irreversible) condition, our chiropractor can help you enjoy joint pain relief and optimal mobility for many years to come -- without the use of potentially harmful medications. Chiropractic adjustment can help arthritic joints by shifting misaligned joint components into a more efficient alignment, reducing painful friction. Spine adjustments can improve your body symmetry, equalizing weight distribution, and taking undue stress off certain overworked joints. Our use of the Activator Methods ensures that you receive the most gentle and precise adjustments possible.
Our chiropractor may also prescribe other safe, non-invasive therapies to complement and enhance the benefits of chiropractic care for osteoarthritis. We can offer a holistic plan that includes services such as acupuncture, massage therapy, exercise, and lifestyle changes.
