Arthritis is a progressive disorder of the bones and joint that can cause chronic pain and problems with normal movement. It is often associated with aging, but some types of arthritis can occur at a much younger age. At Campion Chiropractic in College Station, we provide relief from pain and improved mobility for people of all ages.
Arthritis is a group of degenerative disorders that affect the joints of the body. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, and it generally occurs due to aging. However, rheumatoid arthritis can occur at any age, when the immune system can become dysfunction, attacking structures in the body instead of doing its normal job of protecting against infection. Arthritis causes visible changes in cartilage and bones and can progress to a point where normal mobility becomes restricted.
Inflammation in the joints leads to degeneration of tissues that support the joints. Individuals may experience swelling, tenderness of joints and chronic discomfort when using the joint. Gradually, the structures of the joints become more damaged, leading to increasing pain and reduced range of motion.
The normal wear and tear on bones and joints that occurs with aging is the most common cause of arthritis. However, dysfunction of the immune system can result in another type of arthritis called rheumatoid arthritis. In some cases, injuries to a joint can lead to chronic inflammation that leads to arthritis in time. Arthritis can also be caused by infection or by metabolic disease.
Chiropractic care offers a drug-free, non-invasive method of dealing with common arthritis pain and loss of mobility. Spinal adjustment can help to improve the function of the body to facilitate movement. Cold laser therapy can help reduce inflammation of tissues to improve function. Corrective exercise can strengthen supporting muscles, increase flexibility, and range of motion.
