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.
