Problems & Treatments » Wear & Tear – Arthritis

Chiropractic can’t stop you getting old ... but it might stop you feeling it!

Many patients have been told they have pain due to ‘arthritis’ and they will just have to ‘put up with it’ or ‘live with it’. It is true that most people will get some wear and tear or osteoarthritis as they get older. However, do they need to just put up with the pain?

Osteoarthritis (degenerative arthritis) is usually due to damage to the cartilage and bone. Generally our bodies can compensate for this and we can feel little or even no pain – even if the wear and tear is quite advanced. You might notice some stiffness in the affected joints especially in the morning, when the weather changes or after a period of inactivity.

Sometimes people have been told that they have ‘arthritis’ when in fact their pain is due to simple joint dysfunction rather than wear and tear.

Putting a stop to it

Degeneration of joints cannot be reversed. However the Chiropractors at this Centre can help to improve joint and muscle function which can make a significant difference to pain and stiffness.

The Doctors of Chiropractic at this Centre will ask you questions about your pain, medical history, posture and lifestyle and carry out a fully and thorough examination to discover the cause of your pain. You will then be offered a diagnosis of your complaint.

Then your treatment will begin often with gentle, specific adjustments (the chiropractic word for manipulation) done by hand to free stiff joints and myofascial release techniques to help the function of the muscles. You will also be advised of specific exercises to strengthen weak muscles and stretch tight muscles to improve flexibility.
