Arthritis & Rheumatism

Conditions > Arthritis & Rheumatism

Arthritis is a disease that can affect every bone of the body and is called by many different names. Osteoarthritis (OA) seen in most adults results primarily from misalignments of the spine. These misalignments in the spine result in an unequal distribution of weight that causes unnecessary wear and tear on the effected joints. Degenerative joint disease (DJD) of the spine is an example if arthritis. When DJD is associated with degenerative disc disease it produces bone spurs that cause nerve pain and organ dysfunction.

Adult onset rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and juvenile arthritis (JRA) are thought to be an autoimmune disease. It can come on anytime and resolve anytime without any known cause. The effects of RA and JRA can be devastating, painful, leaving the individual cripple. Allopathic physicians offer no cures for OA, RA or JRA.

Treatments include anti-inflammatory, steroids, hot/cold treatments and surgery after the joint is severely damaged. These anti-inflammatory drugs can result in ulcers of the stomach and kidney damage. Approximately 10,000 people die each year from the chronic usage of these drugs.

Chiropractic has been successful in preventing, limiting and even reversing OA. Chiropractic helps to restore normal function of the joints by restoring normal motion to that joint. Motion is life and restoring motion to the joint stops the progression of OA to the joint.

Never underestimate the power of the body to heal it self. Misalignments of the spine can lead to nerve interference reducing the optimal health of the body. An optimal functioning spine and nervous system are the goals of chiropractic care.
