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.

"This office was the best experience I have ever had with a doctor. The staff are warm, friendly and accommodating. There was never a long wait to see my doctor. Dr. Wade helped with some long term lower back pain that I thought I would have to live with, however after going through the treatment process, I'm happy to say i'm no longer in any pain. I would highly recommend the office to anyone."

He brings positive energy into the office every single day and is in a good mood 100% of the time. During each session, he gave me tips on faster healing and lifestyle changes I could make to help in the future."
