Osteoarthritis: The common joint disease

Do you suffer from pain in your joints?




If so, you may have osteoarthritis.

Osteoarthritis can affect any joint in the body, but it most often affects weight-bearing joints such as the hips, knees and feet.

Symptoms of osteoarthritis include pain, stiffness, swelling and decreased range of motion.

What is osteoarthritis?


Osteoarthritis is a degenerative process that attacks the cartilage in the joints. As the disease progresses, the cartilage wears away and the bones rub against each other, causing more pain and inflammation.

Osteoarthritis is a very common phenomenon in the population, especially in people over 50.  However, it can start anywhere from 20 to 30 years.

Men and women are affected in equal proportions.


How to relieve osteoarthritis with chiropractic?


If you are one of the many people who suffer from osteoarthritis, you know how debilitating the pain can be.

Even everyday activities like walking or going up and down stairs can become difficult.

You may have tried various treatments, but none of them seem to provide lasting relief.

Chiropractic care may be the answer you are looking for. It is a safe and effective treatment for osteoarthritis.

Chiropractors use a gentle method of relaxing the muscles and ligaments and then releasing the affected joint.

They are non-invasive and do not require the use of medication. This makes them an excellent option for people who are looking for a natural way to relieve their symptoms.

With the care of a chiropractor, you will gain joint flexibility. Thus, your pain will decrease drastically.

With proper management, osteoarthritis should not prevent you from leading an active and fulfilling life.
