Arthritis is a disease that affects one in five people. There are many types of arthritis including rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, enteropathic arthritis, and many others. However, the most common form is old age arthritis, also known as osteoarthritis, or degenerative joint disease (DJD). DJD is the arthritis that most people get as they age and the joints start to break down. In many people, their DJD is not associated with joint pain, but in some the joint pain is severe.
The most commonly affected areas are the spine (low back and neck), shoulders, hips, knees, and hands. The most important thing you can do to prevent DJD or prevent it from getting worse is to keep moving! Movement of the joints helps to bring nutrients and lubrication to the joints, allowing them to heal.
This is where chiropractic care can make a difference. One of the major affects of chiropractic treatments (adjustments) is to improvement the movement of the joints, specifically the joints of the spine. Specific segments can be identified through the evaluation process which can then be addressed with chiropractic adjustments, increasing the mobility of a stuck, stiff, and painful joint.
If you have been told you have degeneration or arthritis in your spine, it’s a good idea to have a chiropractic check up and find out how it can help you.
