Arthritis can be an extremely uncomfortable and painful condition which makes daily tasks and normal routines difficult to do — if not impossible. No one should have to live a life in pain, accepting their physical struggles as something to be expected, and no one should have to “grin and bear it” on a consistent basis. If you’ve been dealing with the pain of arthritis, our chiropractors could help you find the relief you’re looking for. Contact ReVive Health Centre in South Naperville to work with a chiropractic team that always has your wellness and health as a top priority.
WHAT IS ARTHRITIS?
Arthritis is a condition that results from inflammation of the joints or when the cartilage between the bone wears away. In your body, cartilage protects your joints by absorbing impact. Cartilage allows you to move freely, smoothly and without pain. When cartilage is lacking, your bones rub together, making it painful for you to use that particular joint.
HOW CHIROPRACTIC CAN HELP:
Chiropractic care can be helpful for arthritis pain, according to the National Institutes of Health website. In one case, an elderly woman with osteoarthritis in her hip received a 12-week round of chiropractic care. It was determined that she had an increased range of motion, better balance, and decreased disability.
Chiropractic treatment has also been found to relax muscles, increase motion range, and improve joint coordination, among other things
Chiropractic care can also help to reduce inflammation in the body, which can help to reduce pain as well.
