Arthritis is usually NOT the cause of your pain! In most cases, arthritis is the after-effect of years of abuse and neglect of a joint’s health. While the body treats injuries or joint abnormalities with inflammation and muscle spasm, it also causes excess deposits of calcium to go on the edge of the joints in an effort to stabilize it. This causes further abnormal motion and irritation. Chiropractic care can help to restore this motion, and in most cases, slow further degeneration of the joint! Better yet, see a chiropractor to help your body to function properly before any arthritic degeneration sets in!
