Arthritis Pain Relief

Arthritis, which is considered the primary cause of disability nationwide, is a medical condition that manifests as joint stiffness, pain, and reduced mobility. Those afflicted with arthritis find it impacts their quality of life and has the potential to lead to debilitating consequences. Dr. Kirk Henrichs of Stout-Henrichs Chiropractic Clinic in Dodge City, KS, notes that while a cure for arthritis has yet to be discovered, an array of chiropractic and complementary care services offer relief from its symptoms.

The Most Common Type of Arthritis

A report from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention notes that about one-quarter of American adults have been diagnosed with an arthritic condition. In raw numbers, this is equivalent to more than 80 million people (2022).

There are more than 100 types of arthritis; however, the most common type is osteoarthritis. It happens when the cartilage in your joint wears away (typically as a function of time). The result often leaves a painful bone-on-bone condition. Various chiropractic services are available to help relieve the painful symptoms caused by osteoarthritis, which are noted below.

Osteoarthritis’s development and progression are influenced by several critical factors, like genetics, gender, age, or injury. However, there are factors that can often be controlled by each person –
- Weight.
- Muscle weakness from lack of exercise or movement.
- Poor nutrition.

Chiropractic Care for Arthritis

Chiropractic care may offer one or more of these holistic therapies that help reduce painful arthritic symptoms -  
- Gentle Spinal Adjustments. 
- Deep Tissue Laser Therapy.
- Intermittent Mechanical Traction.
- Electrical Stimulation Therapies.
- Therapeutic Ultrasound.
- Therapeutic Exercise.

Self-Care Guidance

Maintaining mobility as you age is crucial for overall health. Loss of mobility can lead to various medical issues. Losing one’s mobility can cause various medical problems, so-
- Keep your weight in a healthy range.  
- Maintain a Nutritious Diet.
- Seek regular guidance or treatment from a chiropractor.
