Long explained as a by-product of aging, arthritis affects over 40 million Americans. Arthritis, or joint inflammation, is a result of trauma to the joints, improper circulation, and poor nutritional habits. As we age our muscles weaken, our joints become less flexible, and our muscles and connective tissues become less hydrated.
Numerous studies have shown that while arthritis has no cure and degenerative changes are not reversible, chiropractic is one of the many options to help you increase joint mobility and decrease the inflammation of arthritis. The following may help ease pain and discomfort in arthritic joints:
- Nutritional Supplementation
- At the Anderson Chiropractic Clinics we offer the following supplementation to aid in the management of arthritis:
- Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate
Before undertaking any regimen of treatment for arthritis, you should check with your chiropractor for your specific needs. Certain supplements should be screened for conditions and drugs that may not be recommended in combination.
