Arthritis is a slow degeneration of the joints that connect your bones and allow you to move. Aging, injury, poor posture, and excessive weight can cause joints to wear down and become stiff and painful. Your doctor of chiropractic is trained to restore the health of your spine and joints. Adjustments can reduce swelling and irritation, relieve pain, and slow degeneration. Your Chiropractor may suggest other types of treatment in their office to improve range of motion.
