Osteoarthritis

Chiropractic Options in Stouffville for Osteoarthritis

The most common kind of arthritis, osteoarthritis is a disease of inflammation in the joints that have lost healthy cartilage. Usually that rubbery tissue cushions our bones at the joints, absorbing shock and letting our bones glide over each other. When cartilage breaks down and wears away in osteoarthritis, affected bones rub together. You are left suffering with pain, swelling and stiffness – most often in hands, knees, hips or spine.

Osteoarthritis usually shows up as people age, but you can also develop osteoarthritis earlier because of genetics, being overweight, or overusing or injuring a particular joint. More women than men report symptoms, which include:

  • Stiffness upon waking or after sitting more than 15 minutes
  • Joint pain and swelling that improves when you rest
  • Limited range of motion
  • Joints warm to the touch
  • Bony knobs on finger joints
  • Muscle weakness around painful joints

You may be able to decrease damage to your joints with regular exercise, a healthy weight and proper care of joint injuries.

Osteoarthritis & the Role of Chiropractic Care

Once joint damage begins, chiropractic care cannot stop it. However, your chiropractor can offer relief from osteoarthritis with spinal manipulation. Some studies have found that chiropractic spinal manipulation may result in:

  • Increased range of motion and reduced pain
  • Restoration of normal movement of the spine
  • Relaxing of muscles
  • Improved joint coordination
