What is Arthritis?

Arthritis isn’t just a single condition; it’s an umbrella term covering over a hundred different disorders. The three most prevalent types are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout. Osteoarthritis, often referred to as ‘wear and tear’ arthritis, is the most common form. Contrary to popular belief, osteoarthritis isn’t merely a result of aging but can occur due to poor joint mechanics over time, affecting various parts of the body such as the spine, hips, and knees, significantly impeding daily activities.

The Role of Your Spine

Your spine does more than just hold you upright; it plays a crucial role in protecting your nervous system. Misalignments in the spine, known as ‘subluxations,’ can impair the nervous system, disrupting the signals between your brain and body. This miscommunication can lead to poor joint control, which over time may contribute to the development of arthritis.

How Chiropractic May Help You

At Canberra Spine Centre, we understand that each case of arthritis is unique. That’s why our approach is tailored to individual needs. We start by determining whether chiropractic care is suitable for your type of condition. If so, our team can use gentle spinal manipulations and soft tissue techniques to help restore proper motion and alleviate nerve irritation.

This not only improves joint control but also enhances overall movement and reduces pain.

The Misconceptions of Aging

Many believe that osteoarthritis is an inevitable part of aging. However, age alone isn’t the cause; it’s more about how the joints have been used throughout one’s life. For instance, if one knee develops arthritis while the other remains healthy, it suggests that specific factors contribute to the condition beyond just aging. Factors such as previous injuries or long-term joint misalignment can lead to excessive wear and tear.

Who Can Benefit from Chiropractic Care?

If you’re experiencing daily pain and restricted mobility, chiropractic care might be the solution you need. It’s especially beneficial for those looking to manage their symptoms naturally without relying solely on medications, which could have long-term side effects.

Empowering You to Help Yourself

Movement is essential for managing the condition. Gentle activities like yoga, swimming, or even walking can stretch and strengthen the joints, improving mobility and reducing pain.

At Canberra Spine Centre, we go beyond adjustments; we provide specific exercise recommendations to complement your care and enhance your recovery.
