Also is known as Osteoarthritis (OA) affects more than 20 million Americans. However, it is more common in women than in men.
Typically the tissue (cartilage) on the bone connects at the joint and helps the bones glide as the joints move.
However, the cartilage is broken down and eventually wears away.
In other words, instead of gliding, bones rub against each other, causing pain, swelling, and loss of motion.
Although the underlying process cannot be reversed, symptoms can be effectively managed, through an active lifestyle, healthy weight, and chiropractic care.
We can detect the earliest degenerative changes in the spine and other weight-bearing joints. After we understand the phase of your condition, our goal is to slow down the progression of the disease. Chiropractors adjust the bone into a better position this allows the joints to function and improve symptoms. In addition, we will help you choose exercises to improve mobility and stiffness. We may recommend therapeutic modalities, such as traction therapy, and muscle stimulation in order to maximize your health through our care.
