Inflammation of your joints can be uncomfortable and painful, and its important to understand the form of arthritis you have
While there are many terms for various forms of arthritis (e.g. spondylosis, degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis) it essentially boils down to inflammation of the joints.
Your spine is made of numerous joints where spinal bones and ribs interact with each other. Spinal joints allow for a wide variety of movements. Because of the significant mobility in the spine, however, a lot of potential for injury exists.
The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis caused by mechanical stress in the back, neck, and spine.
Incorrect spinal alignment can result in osteoarthritis. While medication can provide a temporary relief to the pain caused by joint inflammation, it does not solve the root cause.
We have helped practice members who like in the X-ray image experienced severe misalignment, significant restriction in movement and flexibility, extreme disc degeneration, and obvious posture distortion.
We focus on using a drug-free approach to restore spinal function, decrease inflammation, and help healing of the surrounding soft tissues. Through regular adjustments to improve alignment and increase joint mobility, we have helped many of our practice members go beyond pain-relief and lead a healthier life.
