Chiropractic Treatment for Arthritis Pain and Loss of Mobility
If you suffer from arthritis, you know firsthand how this chronic condition can affect your daily life. The pain and stiffness can make it challenging to move around and complete everyday tasks, and over time, the loss of mobility can become a significant issue. Many patients have found that incorporating chiropractic treatment into their health management plan does provide arthritis pain relief and improves their level of mobility.
Chiropractic Treatment for Arthritis
Arthritis is a chronic condition that causes inflammation and pain in the joints. There are many different types of arthritis, but the two most common are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Osteoarthritis, also known as degenerative joint disease, is the most common form of arthritis. It occurs when the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of bones wears down over time. This can lead to pain, stiffness, and difficulty moving the affected joints.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder that causes the body’s immune system to attack the joints. This can lead to inflammation, swelling, and pain.
Chiropractic treatment is able to help people with arthritis in several ways. First and foremost, chiropractic adjustments can help reduce joint pain and discomfort. By manipulating the spine and other joints, chiropractors can help to alleviate the pressure on the affected areas, which can reduce inflammation and improve mobility.
Chiropractic treatment also helps to improve flexibility and range of motion in the affected joints. This can be especially beneficial for people with arthritis who have lost some of their mobility due to the condition. By stretching and manipulating the joints, chiropractors can help to increase flexibility and improve overall movement.
When working with patients who suffer from arthritis pain and associated symptoms, I often recommend the gentler ProAdjusterSP adjustment system rather than more traditional, hands-on manual adjustment techniques as part of their care plan. The ProAdjusterSP is an innovative technology that allows for precise adjustments using low-force impulses to stimulate the patient’s joints, muscles, and tissues without applying forceful pressure that could potentially cause already sensitive areas pain or discomfort.
Regular chiropractic care has been shown to improve the overall quality of life for people with arthritis. By reducing pain and improving mobility, chiropractic care can help people with arthritis to enjoy their daily activities better and maintain an active lifestyle.
Is Chiropractic Treatment Safe for People with Arthritis?
Chiropractic treatment is generally considered safe for people with arthritis. However, each patient is different and it’s important to be sure the chiropractor you choose will provide you with a thorough assessment and examination before recommending or beginning any treatment plan and be willing to work with any other healthcare professional providing treatment for your condition.
Arthritis can be a challenging condition to live with, but chiropractic treatment is found by many patients to provide relief from their symptoms. By reducing pain, improving mobility, and increasing flexibility, chiropractic care can help people with arthritis to enjoy a better quality of life.
