Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and is a joint disease that results from bones rubbing together due to a breakdown of cartilage. Osteoarthritis usually develops in the hands, hips, knees and spine, causing pain, swelling and stiffness. Osteoarthritis is as frequent in men as it is in women and the symptoms typically occur once patients reach their 50’s and 60’s. However, injuries or overuse of joints can cause osteoarthritis to occur much earlier.
Using a combination of nutritional changes, massage therapy and traditional chiropractic treatments, the team at Advanced Chiropractic & Rehab, Inc. helps osteoarthritis patients reduce the pain they are experiencing. Other benefits include improving joint coordination, relaxing muscles, increasing range of motion and restoring normal movement of the spine.
Osteoarthritis can be debilitating and frustrating and should be addressed immediately so that chronic problems do not persist and so that you return to the field, court track, road or pool as quickly as you can. Advanced Chiropractic & Rehab, Inc. is the smart choice to better health in the Youngstown / Mahoning Valley area.
