Arthritis Can Cause Chronic Pain a Decreased Mobility
Arthritis is a category of degenerative bone diseases that affect the joints and spine. There are over a hundred forms of arthritis and related conditions, but the most common types are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. These conditions cause the typical pain, swelling, and problems with mobility that are characteristic of the disease. Arthritis can affect the knees, hips, ankles, toes, back, shoulders, wrists or fingers. More than 50 million people are affected by arthritis in the United States. In some cases, the inflammation of joints is caused by normal wear and tear or by injury. In other cases, immune system dysfunction can cause inflammation of the joints. In yet other cases, arthritis can be caused by other types of diseases.
Common Osteoarthritis Is A Progressive Disease
Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, is a condition that gets worse over time, leading to increasing problems with pain, swelling and lack of flexibility, as people age. A wide range of treatment options are available for treating osteoarthritides, such as oral pain medications, injections, and surgery. However, many people want to avoid the strong medications that cause side effects or would prefer to avoid the lengthy recovery times involved in surgery. For these individuals, chiropractic care offers a drug-free, non-invasive method for relieving pain and improving function. Our Colorado Springs chiropractic professional can design a program for your unique needs that will improve pain and increase function in joints.
