“The place where chiropractic really shines is in maximizing the function of an arthritic joint,” says Robert Hayden, DC, Ph.D. a spokesperson for the American Chiropractic Association, “Our goal is to restore patients’ function so they can have the kind of life they want.”
We often take these abilities to stay mobile and flexible for granted until something goes wrong. Joint disorders usually involve pain and other symptoms. They range from mild to severe to making it impossible to use a joint.
Some factors that contribute to joint deterioration are:
– Aging (getting older can mean stiffer, less flexible joints)
– Previous injuries
– Losing muscle mass
– Excess weight (this puts extra stress on your bones and joints, especially at the knees)
– Many joint disorders and accompanying symptoms occur because of arthritis, which impacts the joints and surrounding tissues.
