Arthritis affects people of all ages, not just older people! In fact, almost 300,000 babies and children have arthritis and by the year 2040, over 78 million people will be diagnosed with arthritis!

Arthritis is a disorder that affects the musculoskeletal system and because chiropractors have gone through school to treat the musculoskeletal system, they are the perfect option to help with Arthritis symptoms.

Regardless of what caused your arthritis, the most important thing you can do now is to alleviate your symptoms and slow the progression of arthritis by reducing the swelling and associated pain that comes from the movement of the affected, arthritic joints.

Seeing a chiropractor for arthritis can help with the following:

  • Improve Flexibility
  • Improve Range of Motion
  • Increase Muscle Tone and Strength
  • Providing nutritional and exercise tips to help with the inflammation of the joints caused by arthritis

Chiropractic care is the answer!

While it cannot cure arthritis, it has been known to slow the progression of the illness and help those suffering from it manage their symptoms better; therefore, being more comfortable in their own skin. Chiropractic care can help slow the progression by mobilizing the affected joints and help the individual take control of the symptoms, prevent further damage and reduce the need to take any anti-inflammatory medications! We understand these medications may work, but they come with dangerous, longterm side effects; whereas, chiropractic care is all natural and completely safe with no side effect, except to feel better.
