Osteoarthritis Pain? Chiropractic Care Can Help!

By Donna Stark

It's a common misconception that osteoarthritis is an absolute in life and that we must simply learn how to live with the pain. If that were truly the case, we would all be in for a very uncomfortable ride, wouldn't we? The truth is that, although there is no cure for the condition, the pain from osteoarthritis can be managed and life can resume somewhat normally after a diagnosis. The right steps just need to be taken though, and one of the most important steps is receiving chiropractic care at The Joint Chiropractic.

Causes and Symptoms of Osteoarthritis

Widely known as the "wear and tear" form of arthritis, osteoarthritis occurs when the joint cartilage starts to break down and the bones begin to rub against each other. The joints that are most affected are the ones in the hands, knees, hips, and spine. But who is at risk? Well, osteoarthritis isn't particularly picky about who it chooses to inflict pain on, but certain factors can increase your chance of it occurring. Here are a few of them.

  • Older age
  • Obesity
  • Previous joint injuries
  • Repetitive stress on a joint
  • Genetics

Unfortunately, osteoarthritis symptoms often develop slowly, so you may not even realize the level of damage that is occurring. Therefore, it is so important to be aware of all the symptoms. Take a look at a few of them here.

  • Pain during or after movement
  • Joint stiffness in the morning or after being inactive
  • Loss of flexibility and range of motion
  • Grinding sensation when you use the joint
  • Bone spurs around the affected joint
  • Swelling and inflammation around the joint

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Routine chiropractic care can be an important addition in the lives of those who suffer from osteoarthritis pain. Chiropractic adjustments can help restore normal motion and function in the arthritic joints, reduce swelling and inflammation, and slow down the degeneration process. But those aren't the only benefits you will receive by establishing regular visits at The Joint Chiropractic.

Your chiropractors will also provide plenty of suggestions that can promote an overall healthier lifestyle. With specific exercises and stretches, and tips on how to incorporate non-inflammatory foods into your diet, you can look forward to days with reduced pain and discomfort.
