Can Chiropractic Help With Arthritis?

Osteoarthritis (OA)  and Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) have  similar symptoms:
  • Stiffness in joints
  • Pain in joints 
  • Restricted mobility in joints 
  • Swelling in the joints 
  • Symptoms that are worse in the morning
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease.  It occurs when a person’s immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissues in the joints. 

Osteoarthritis is a wear and tear disease caused by the protective cartilage gradually wearing  down and the bones  rubbing together.

While symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis  arise and begin to worsen quickly, Osteoarthritis symptoms come on gradually over time due to the wear and tear of the joints.

Chiropractic has been shown to improve the symptoms of osteoarthritis  according to a study published in PubMed. “If you have back or neck pain due to osteoarthritis, chiropractic is one of the safest therapies you can use.” Scott Halderman,MD, a neurologist in Santa Ana, California.
