Arthritis Awareness Month: Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Arthritis
Did you know that upwards of 60 million adults and 300,000 kids have arthritis (aka pain or disease in the joints)? You’re likely to get arthritis as you age, and you’re at a higher risk if you are a female, according to the Arthritis Foundation.
With people subject to over 100 types of arthritis, the chances are that at least one person you know is affected. Whether that is you, a friend, or a family member, the right arthritis treatment can make a world of difference.
That’s where a chiropractor, like your friends at Complete Health Chiropractic Center in Oregon City, comes in. In support of Arthritis Awareness Month, we’re going to share a few of the many benefits of chiropractic care for arthritis. If you feel the need to book an appointment after reading, feel free to reach out to us at (503) 557-9266.
Should You Get Chiropractic Care for Arthritis?
It is a great idea to see a chiropractor to discuss chiropractic treatment if you have been diagnosed with arthritis. Dr. Pitcairn has over 25 years of chiropractic experience, so you can trust that our team has the necessary know-how to help you manage your arthritis symptoms.
First, we’ll perform a detailed examination using cutting-edge technology, digital tests, and x-rays to figure out if it’s the right call to get chiropractic care for your arthritis. We may also ask questions about your medical history, symptoms, and more to best understand your needs and how we can help. Then, once we figure out if chiropractic treatment is right for you, we’ll work with you to create a treatment plan.
Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment for Arthritis Symptoms
Here are a couple of reasons to consider chiropractic care for arthritis:
Joint Pain Relief
Do you have osteoarthritis (the most prevalent type of arthritis, which happens in the event that the cartilage around your bones deteriorates, causing joint discomfort)?
If so, chiropractic care is generally recommended, particularly if you’re facing back pain. We will align your spine, which takes the pressure off of the joints, discs and nerves. That can help you get the much-needed relief you deserve.

Another amazing thing about using chiropractic care to treat arthritis is that it can help to improve your range of motion. A spinal adjustment can reduce your joint pain levels and add to your mobility, allowing you to move easier than before.
To help with this, our chiropractor will apply a gentle force to help bring those joints back into alignment and help you move your arms, back, neck, and legs with ease once again. Once this realignment happens, your spine and brain will also communicate better, which can help with your overall body functioning.
