Osteoarthritis is a chronic joint disease and occurs as the result of wear and tear. It mainly affects the weight-bearing joints (the spine, hips, knees, ankles and joints in the hands). The general wear and tear of a lifetime results in joints putting down extra areas of bone in order to support the damaged areas. Osteoarthritis can be progressive in your body without having any symptoms. Loss of movement in a joint overtime will cause you pain, the pain may come and go and eventually becomes more constant. Chiropractic treatments can prevent further arthritic development. Many of our patients say that chiropractic therapy helps them feel better which makes our patients able to stay more active and take care of themselves better. Dr. Cordima at The Advanced Pain Relief Clinic can help improve muscle and joint function and therefore, reduce the symptoms of arthritis.
