What Is Arthritis? 

Arthritis is a condition where inflammation in the joints causes pain and stiffness. It can happen in one or more joints at a time. It can be caused by aging or previous injury. In some cases, arthritis is the result of another condition. Autoimmune diseases like lupus often come with arthritis. A joint infection might also deteriorate the cushioning in that space, causing arthritis to appear. 

What Are the Symptoms of Arthritis?  

The most common symptoms of arthritis are pain and stiffness in your joints. It might come out of nowhere or be connected to another condition you’re already aware of. Sometimes the joint might feel hot to the touch. There could be swelling as well. There are less commonly known symptoms for arthritis as well. Sudden weight loss or difficulty moving might be signs of arthritis. Since these symptoms are connected to various conditions, we will need to do tests to connect them to arthritis. 

How Can a Chiropractor Help? 

Chiropractic care can make a big difference in treating arthritis. Once you’ve been diagnosed via exam and imaging, you can choose a care plan to address your immediate and long-term needs. Our chiropractor can provide several different treatments and services. These will focus on keeping your spine moving optimally with balanced alignment, which can reduce joint pain specific to arthritis. We can also recommend stretches and exercises to strengthen your muscles and joint movements to keep them as healthy as possible. Outside of the office, our chiropractor can also provide health management coaching, offering dietary and lifestyle coaching to help you provide your body with everything it needs to reduce arthritis flare-ups.
