Whether you were recently diagnosed with arthritis, or you’ve been dealing with the condition for some time, you may have heard of the benefits of chiropractic care for treating your symptoms. While your initial impression of chiropractic treatments may be that they center on “cracking” the back, the truth is that chiropractors are trained to assess and treat the entire musculoskeletal system through a wide variety of techniques, many of which can be effective at restoring both mobility and function for arthritis patients.
The majority of chiropractic treatment techniques for arthritis involve gentle spinal manipulation combined with soft tissue therapies. These can include massage therapy, ultrasound, electrotherapy and more. The specific techniques our chiropractor uses will depend on the type of arthritis you have, as well as the specific nature of your symptoms.
For instance, we will not directly manipulate an inflamed joint, but we can use various therapies and diet recommendations to help your body work to reduce inflammation on its own. We’ll also provide adjustments in other areas that can help reduce pain from misalignments that result from changes you make to compensate for pain in one area, and these adjustments often take some of the stress off the affected joint as well.
Chiropractic treatments focus on restoring function to your joints and reducing pain by ensuring that all aspects of your musculoskeletal system are properly aligned. This non-invasive approach has no side effects and promotes healing by stimulating your body’s natural systems and processes. Chiropractic treatments have been shown to reduce symptoms in arthritis patients without the need for additional pain medication.
Because our chiropractor focuses on restoring as much function as possible to affected joints, the benefits from our treatment can extend beyond pain management. In fact, they can help maintain a more active lifestyle, and that, in turn, is better for your overall health and well-being.
