Have you ever felt that your arthritis is beyond help?
We may hear someone lament, ‘There nothing that can be done, I’ve got arthritis.’ While in its severe form, this condition can be debilitating, in most cases symptoms improve when steps are taken to maintain muscle tone and strength, along with joint movement.
By a certain age, we all show signs of wear and tear – also known as Osteoarthritis. This comes about due to previous injuries, poor posture and generalised de-conditioning.
Don’t settle for a life that is limited by an inability to move well.
At Simply Health, our chiropractors are very experienced in recognising when arthritis is a factor in your health.
If arthritis is present, specialised gentle techniques and exercise programs are implemented to suit your individual needs, which may help you improve function, movement and strength.
How can chiropractic care ease your arthritis?
It’s all about restoring gentle movement and muscle tone. Typically, the deep chiropractic adjustments (manipulation) and similar techniques are too heavy for people with arthritis. Much better are low force techniques, such as mobilization and instrument adjusting.
In more severe cases you might still need to be under the care of a GP or Rheumatologist. But as far as your care with us – it’s all about natural health care and encouraging movement.
