Our Nailsea Clinic Discusses Arthritis
13 July 2020
Arthritis is a very common condition in the UK, affecting millions of people each year. It’s a debilitating condition that causes swelling and pain in the joints. People who suffer from arthritis often struggle with mobility and find that the condition severely impacts their lifestyle.
Although arthritis is a common condition, it is sometimes not well understood by the general public. Arthritis is not a single disease, but a term used to describe many different conditions that cause joint pain. In total, there are over 100 types of arthritis and associated conditions.
Chiropractic care is a great way to manage and relieve pain caused by arthritis. Routine chiropractic care provides arthritis patients with a safe alternative to prescription or over-the-counter pain medications – which are commonly prescribed to patients to help them manage their pain. However, this only masks the problem and can lead to other health issues.
Chiropractic adjustments reduce joint restrictions or misalignments in the spine and other joints in the body to reduce inflammation and improve the function of both the affected joint and nervous system. By increasing joint mobility and improving your nervous system and overall health, your body can manage symptoms caused by arthritis much better.
Our Nailsea Clinic frequently receives new patients who are suffering from arthritis and they are usually in a great deal of pain, wondering if we can help them obtain some pain relief. Regular Chiropractic treatment from our Chiropractors will significantly reduce inflammation, relieve pain and restore mobility, significantly reducing the symptoms of many types of arthritis and allowing patients to live their life to the full.
Our chiropractors conduct a thorough examination and go through a few gentle movements and diagnostic tests to fully assess your needs and problem areas. Your chiropractor will then give you a full report of the issues and problem areas they found during your consultation. They will recommend a bespoke course of treatment, which you can begin in this appointment if you wish.
