Arthritis means inflammation of the joint. This happens when swelling occurs in the joint, causing pressure which creates pain. When this occurs, the joints can become damaged or destroyed over time if not treated. There are multiple types of arthritis, but degenerative is the most common.
Arthritis cannot be cured, but chiropractic adjustments aids in preventing damage created by arthritis and relieving pain. Realignment through chiropractic care prevents stuck and uneven joints from grinding on each other, thus reducing swelling and inflammation. Reducing swelling is essential to preventing long term joint damage.
