Arthritis is a common condition that causes inflammation, pain and stiffness in the joints. Factors that can lead to arthritis include your occupation, physical activities, diet, heredity and past joint trauma. Arthritis is a culmination of over 100 diseases, with different levels of severity, but the most common types are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis.

Adjustments for Arthritis Pain

It’s a misconception that arthritis is a natural result of aging and we must deal with the pain. If that were the case, everyone would develop the condition and there would be no treatment options! However, the over three million people who suffer from arthritis often use medication to ease the pain – which only provides temporary relief. While there is no cure, chiropractic is a natural alternative that has long-lasting effects.

Regular chiropractic adjustments can help reestablish normal motion in arthritic joints. Whether your hands, knees or spine is inflamed, chiropractic can help reduce joint swelling in these areas and restore overall body function. Our chiropractic care for the treatment of arthritis is designed to slow or reverse the degeneration of joints.

At the Chiropractic Health Center of Glastonbury, we combine the many benefits of chiropractic with wellness care to promote an overall healthy lifestyle for patients. Along with gentle spinal manipulation, a healthy diet can help reduce joint inflammation.

Treating Degenerative Arthritis

Commonly known as osteoarthritis, joint degeneration occurs when cartilage starts to gradually break down. Cartilage is the protective tissue at the end of our bones that allows the joints to glide smoothly. As this material wears away, the bones also break down and can develop ridges called spurs. Over time, the cartilage completely deteriorates and the bone spurs rub together, causing moderate to severe joint discomfort. You don’t have to live with this level of discomfort; manage your pain with chiropractic! Studies show that chiropractic care is an effective way to improve joint mobility.

"I'm a very active individual and lower back pain was getting in the way of activities I love. While my back is still a work in progress, the time spent with Dr. D has been well worth it. I just ran 2 marathons in 2 weeks and these sessions helped me run these races with no back pain."
