Do You Suffer From Arthritis?

Arthritis affects the musculoskeletal system, specifically joints where two or more bones meet. Often considered a single disease it is actually a general term covering more than 100 medical conditions. The three most significant of these conditions are osteoarthritisrheumatoid arthritis and gout which account for more than 95 per cent of cases in Australia.

There is a common misconception that arthritis is a consequence of age. The reality is that 60% of all people suffering from the disease are of working age.

Arthritis can be a debilitating condition that can lead to joint weakness, instability and deformities that can interfere with the most basic daily tasks such as walking, driving a car and preparing food. While the effects of arthritis can range from benign to severe, common symptoms include:

  • Pain – originating in the affected joint and often accompanied with stiffness and swelling.
  • Stiffness – restricted movement of the joints and accompanying pain.
  • Inflammation – swelling of the affected joints.

Common Conditions

Arthritis can be a debilitating condition that can lead to joint weakness, instability and deformities that can interfere with the most basic daily tasks such as walking, driving a car and preparing food. While the effects of arthritis can range from benign to severe, common symptoms include:

  • Pain – originating in the affected joint and often accompanied with stiffness and swelling.
  • Stiffness – restricted movement of the joints and accompanying pain.
  • Inflammation – swelling of the affected joints.

Treatment

In healthy joints the ends of bones come naturally equipped with a smooth and slick protective layer of tough tissue called cartilage which allows the bones to move freely within the joint. Arthritis causes the cartilage in joints to wear down becoming rough and pitted which overtime develop calcium deposits and spurs which can cause further damage.

While there may not yet be a cure for arthritis there are effective treatments available to reduce pain and discomfort. Through smart lifestyle choices including having a balanced diet, leading an active lifestyle and seeking regular chiropractic care, the effects of arthritis may be managed.

The most important thing with arthritis is to maintain as much normal function as possible in the affected areas. Regular chiropractic care may reduce pain, improve joint mobility and increase muscle flexibility for arthritis sufferers. This is achieved through specific adjustments that aim to help to return normal motion and position to fixated spinal joints. Improved mobility and a range of motion may also be improved through stretches and aids that your experienced Chiropractor can recommend. Exercise and activities such as yoga, swimming and joint specific mobilisation exercises may also be beneficial.

Arthritis need not be crippling disease, your chiropractor may help restore normal movement in your joints so you can possibly get back to enjoying life.
