Arthritis Care

Chiropractic care for Arthritis

Chiropractic treatment for Arthritis has two clear and well established functions. The first is to enable the body to move more freely. The second is to provide optimal central nervous system functioning to enable the body to best fight the condition over time.

Chiropractic focuses on physical manipulation called chiropractic adjustments, which allow your chiropractor to work directly on your joints to enable mobility and reduce pain. In addition, the lifestyle benefits of chiropractic include maintaining the body’s alignment and immune system (through optimal support of the central nervous system) which are essential in limiting the devastating effects of all forms of arthritis but especially rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.

Chiropractic and arthritis are uniquely entwined. Whether the cause of arthritis is an autoimmune disorder, endocrine system failure, environmental factors or genetics chiropractic is uniquely placed to help deal with both the physical symptoms and the whole-body health that can help your body heal and yes… actually help prevent arthritis.
