There are many types of arthritis, and chiropractic adjustment has been very successful at arthritis treatment for two particular types. These two types of arthritis are classified as rheumatic diseases, and they are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Arthritis simply means “joint inflammation.” Chiropractors are unable to reverse the damage already caused by arthritis, but they can help prevent further damage by decreasing inflammation in and around the joint.
Osteoarthritis is the most common degenerative joint condition. According to the CDC, 27 million people in the United States are diagnosed with osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is not reversible, and it is thought to be caused by aging and wear and tear. Each bone that is touching another bone is lined by a cartilage cushion. Eventually over time this cushion wears out and you end up with a bone on bone joint. The bones are not meant to grind together, and when they do, pain and inflammation occur i.e. osteoarthritis. Chiropractors can not replace the cartilage cushion in between your bones but they can help slow down further damage.
Most people believe that eventually you get to an age where you just have to live with stiff joints. This is not true. If you let arthritis slow you down, it will. You have to keep moving even though painful stiff joints are trying to slow you down. That is where chiropractic comes in; chiropractic is one of the best natural treatments for osteoarthritis. Chiropractic treatment has shown great success in increasing range of motion and decreasing pain and inflammation of patients diagnosed with osteoarthritis. Chiropractic adjustments put passive motion into stiff joints restoring proper range of motion. Chiropractors also use other therapies to help reduce inflammation and treat osteoarthritis such as electrical muscle stimulation, kinesiotape, physical rehabilitation, and more
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease where your immune system attacks particular joints causing pain and inflammation. Patients suffering from this disease have periods of symptoms and periods of remission. When the symptoms are present it is referred to as a flare up. Since RA is an autoimmune disease, there is no cure. Keeping the patient in remission as long as possible is the best treatment goal for patients with RA. Chiropractic is one of the best natural treatments for rheumatoid arthritis. Chiropractic techniques are used to prevent flare ups and reduce inflammation and pain during flare ups. One of the most natural and effective techniques used by our Blaine, MN chiropractors is a chiropractic adjustment. Other therapies are also used in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments such as electrical muscle stimulation, rocktape, graston, and physical rehabilitation. These therapies are designed to decrease inflammation and increase range of motion in order to prevent flare ups. Moving properly and staying active is the best way to prevent flares ups.
