Osteoarthritis is also called Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD). This disease is one of the most common reasons why people seek out chiropractic care. It affects more than 20 million Americans and is more commonly found in women.
“Although the majority of patients with OA are 65 and older, recent research shows that osteoarthritis is not a by-product of aging. Family history of OA, being overweight, lack of exercise, and prior joint injuries are suggested as OA risk factors.” (ACAtoday.org)
Osteoarthritis can be a preventable condition by staying fit and keeping your spine healthy and flexible with regular Chiropractic adjustments.
Chiropractic treatment is one the most recommended and researched methods to stop OA in its tracks and prevent it from getting worse. Chiropractic is also used to prevent other parts of the spine from being affected. The best time to begin chiropractic care is before osteoarthritis sets in.
Chiropractic care is a safe, effective, non-invasive and pain free method of managing osteoarthritis.
