Arthritis is a joint disorder that involves inflammation of one or more
joints. There are over 100 different forms of arthritis. The most common form is
osteoarthritis or degenerative joint disease, which is a result of trauma to the
joint, infection of the joint, or age. Other forms of arthritis include
rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and related autoimmune diseases that
cause inflammation and damage to a joint or joints. The major complaint by
individuals who have arthritis is joint pain and stiffness. Pain can be constant
or come and go with activity and can be affected by a number of factors
including the weather.
Arthritic pain is due to inflammation that occurs around the joint, damage to
the joint from disease, daily wear and tear of the involved joint, muscle
strains caused by forceful movements against stiff, painful joints and fatigue.
Although movement of an arthritic joint can exacerbate symptoms at first, it is
actually the best remedy for the joint. Controlled movement and proper joint
function along with stretching and strengthening of the involved joint can be
very beneficial to limit future degeneration of an arthritic joint.
Chiropractic adjustments realign vertebrae allowing for proper joint function.
Adjustments can also be performed on arthritic joints in the extremities,
helping to restore joint function increase range of motion and alleviate pain.
