Osteoarthritis Chiropractic treatment on a man with Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage that protects your joints begins to break down. Because of this, bones can rub together, leading to pain in your hands, hips, and knees. Because osteoarthritis is a lifelong condition, treatment focuses on managing the symptoms. This is where chiropractic management can help you out. Chiropractors can help with increasing the range of motion through treatments such as pre and post-adjustment stretches and manipulation of the ankles, lumbar spine, knees, and sacroiliac joints.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is caused by an autoimmune disease. This is when your immune system attacks your joints — causing pain, swelling, and deformity. Because it is a chronic inflammatory disorder, pain can spread to other parts of the body as well. In a case study, a patient experienced relief following a specifically applied manipulation technique. A chiropractor can also suggest other therapies to further improve your condition such as ultrasound, sauna, electrotherapy, or cold laser.

Sacroiliac Joint Pain

Do you feel a dull or sharp pain on your buttocks, thighs, groin, and upper back? At the lower back part of your body, there are two sacroiliac joints that support your weight when walking and standing. Sacroiliac joint pain is one possible reason for this. It can be caused by traumatic injuries, arthritis, pregnancy, or infection. Fortunately, chiropractors are experts when it comes to treating lower back pain. They can significantly decrease lumbosacral pain with treatments such as spinal manipulation, manual manipulation, and mobilization.

Temporomandibular Disorder

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your skull and jawbone together. This makes it possible for you to talk, chew, and grind your teeth. Unfortunately, chronic clenching, arthritis, and jaw injuries can lead to TMJ Disorder, causing pain and tenderness in the area. While medication and surgery are normally recommended in treating your symptoms, chiropractic treatment can also do wonders. Chiropractors can help through muscle release and joint manipulation to help you restore movement. Consult with your chiropractor about a treatment that is right for you.

Key Takeaway

While joint pain can be debilitating, you don’t have to independently rely on medication and surgery to treat your symptoms. Chiropractic treatment can help heal (and even prevent) different cases of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, sacroiliac joint pain, TMJ disorder, and more. Improving your joint problem from a chiropractor involves a holistic approach, ensuring long-term relief for your aches and pains.
