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.

Dr. D has been a true partner in my healing process."

"Dr. D has been providing an integrative approach to the health and well being of my family for over 25 years. He is not only a highly skilled practitioner, but is a compassionate and caring person, not only to his patients but to the community.
Susan Keane
"I came to see Dr. D after both my parents had been coming for quite some time and I began to experience neck pain. All of my visits have been in the midst of COVID-19, something that has turned a lot of places into a frenzy. But instead when coming here it was the opposite. Everything has gone smoothly and I’ve felt safe the entire time. I love coming in and seeing Brooke & Brittany who are always smiling and happy to help. Dr. D helps walk you through everything he is doing so you feel comfortable and are learning as you get adjusted. I would recommend them 100x over."
Caroline Kidney
"They are not only extremely professional and helpful but genuinely care about your well being! In addition, the group is very supportive of the community. I love that they partnered with We Are the Children to donate thousands of dollars worth of toys.

"I started adjustments for neck, back, and tailbone pain and at the end of the 10 weeks the pain was completely gone. Dr. Wade is kind, funny, and very good at what he does. 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."
Cassandra Kolstad
"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."
Matt from mission FITNESS
"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."
