Chiropractic for the Elderly. What is osteoarthritis? How chiropractic can help you?

Arthritis chiropractic pain osteoarthritis hip pain knee painOver time, your body has accumulated more stress related to many injuries and trauma. To this we must add the cumulative effect of poor posture and repetitive movements are felt as we get older.

All these stresses are generated gradually with a loss of mobility and arthritis (degenerative / wear and tear) in your joints particularly in the spine, hands, hips and knees.

We understand that osteoarthrosis is a normal aging phenomenon. However, some people will develop moderate osteoarthritis symptoms while others will have more. Osteoarthrosis is responsible for a decrease in the mobility and flexibility and can bring morning stiffness lasting several minutes. In comparison, arthritis such as rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory disease which affects a much smaller percentage of the population.

There is no direct link between osteoarthrosis and pain. Indeed, you may have a lot of pain and little osteoarthritis and the reverse is also possible. These conditions may limit your activities of daily life and that is where a Doctor of Chiropractic can help.
