We understand how difficult it can be to live with the pain of arthritis. At Advanced Chiropractic & Wellness Center, we have helped patients with all types of arthritis, accompanied by varying levels of pain. While arthritis cannot be totally cured by chiropractic care, seeing a chiropractor for arthritis can serve as an effective treatment, relieving your pain and preventing further damage.
Many people assume chiropractors only perform sharp, swift “snaps” of the neck and spine. The truth is that chiropractic care is a holistic approach to healing, and includes gentle stretches, as well as body and joint maneuvering and gentle exercises. When visiting our practice for help with arthritis, Dr. Richard Schwartz will take great care in ensuring your pain is addressed and a treatment plan is put in place that will alleviate your pain.
While some of the pain we address in our patients is directly caused by their arthritis, another source of pain is the body’s overcompensation in order to avoid feeling that original arthritic pain. This can cause the musculoskeletal to misalign, leading to additional suffering. Dr. Schwartz will make sure your entire body is fully aligned, allowing it to heal more efficiently on its own and protecting you from further pain or even damage to your bones and joints.
Osteoarthritis, which often occurs in the spine, knees, and hips, is the result of the wearing down of cartilage over time. Studies have shown that regular chiropractic treatment accompanied by patient education are more effective at treating osteoarthritis than stretching and education alone.
Similarly, Dr. Schwartz has been able to help patients with rheumatoid arthritis find relief from their pain. Those with rheumatoid arthritis, which is a chronic disorder, have experienced reduced pain and discomfort, improved flexibility and motion, a decrease in inflammation, and an overall increase and enjoyment of daily activities.
