Arthritic pain care in Bridgend, Cowbridge, Pencoed, Porthcawl and South Wales
Arthritis is the inflammation of the joints and comes from “Arth” which means joint, and “itis’ meaning inflammation. Arthritic pain is caused by the joint swelling and feels red and hot. When this swelling occurs over a long period of time, pressure is created, which then causes pain. Arthritis over a period of time will damage the joints.
There are also different types of arthritis, such as rheumatic, psoriatic and degenerative. Degenerative/Osteoarthritis is the most common type that we see & is the form which can be helped by Chiropractic.
How can a chiropractor help arthritis pain?
Chiropractors work with the joints of the spine and extremities. When inflammation is present in the body, certain chemicals are released by the body and it starts to deposit calcium in the joint, causing bone spurs and other problems that cause the joints to break down.
A chiropractor can help to limit the damage caused by arthritis. A chiropractor assists the proper alignment and function of joints, and as a result helps to reduce the process that causes arthritis in the first place.
