Chiropractic Care for Arthritis Relief

Arthritis pain can be debilitating. It can leave sufferers feeling hopeless and desperate for relief. It is in this pursuit that more and more people are discovering the benefits of chiropractic care for arthritis. How exactly can a chiropractor help? Dr. Altman in Cliffside Park, Edgewater, Fort Lee, and Palisades Park, NJ answers this question and more below.

What Is Arthritis?

Arthritis is, in short, joint inflammation. Most often, it occurs where the bones of the elbows or knees meet, but it can occur throughout the body. The inflammation causes swelling, stiffness, and a great deal of pain. It can make it difficult to move and even open a jar of jelly.

How Can a Chiropractor Help?

The joints are one component of the musculoskeletal system – the system chiropractors specialize in. Through various forms of treatment, including adjustments, manipulation, soft tissue therapy, and therapeutic exercises, your chiropractor can help you achieve the following benefits and more.

  • Improved range of motion and flexibility: Through manipulation and gentle exercises, your joints become more flexible and able to support your daily movements.
  • Reduction of pain: Soft tissue therapy can relieve tension, muscle spasms, and tenderness while improving circulation – all of which help relieve your pain.
  • Decrease in inflammation: As the joints become more mobile and circulation improves, excess fluid can be moved out of the joints, reducing inflammation.
  • Ability to live a more active lifestyle: As your joint function improves, you can become more active. And increased activity can further improve your joint function.
  • Improved nerve function: Restoring alignment of the joint and addressing issues in the soft tissues help restore nervous system function. This can reduce pain and further improve your condition.

These benefits are all provided through natural methods, without the use of medication or undesired invasive techniques.
