Arthritis


    Is inflammation of one or more joints causing pain, swelling and limited movement. Arthritis is usually caused by the breakdown of cartilage within a joint.

    Cartilage protects the joint by not only acting as a shock absorber but also creates a smooth surface between two bones assisting fluid like motion within the joint.

    Arthritis is usually an overuse (general wear and tear) problem but can also be caused by a broken bone, infection, or an autoimmune disease.

    Osteoarthritis, is the most common, and is most likely due to aging. Pain and or loss of motion may be felt in your hips, knees, or fingers. Risk factors may include being overweight, previous injuries, or a repetitive motion.

    Symptoms may include: joint pain, joint swelling, stiffness-especially in the morning, warmth and or redness around the joint, or reduced movement  of the joint or joints. Chiropractic has been shown to help.
