But what exactly is arthritis? Arthritis is not really one medical condition. Rather, it’s a more general term that refers toinflammation that may affect joints and otherparts of the body as a result of more than 100 “rheumatic diseases”, such as fibromyalgia,osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.  These disorders destroy joints, bones, muscles, cartilage and other connective tissues.

You have choices when it comes to treating arthritis. If you or someone you care about issuffering from arthritis, you should know that arthritis doesn’t have to mean an end to an active lifestyle.  Prior generations may have accepted the condition as an inevitable part of agingand been given a standard prescription of bed rest and drug therapies. 

However, today’s health care professionals recognize that appropriate exercise and nutrition are also critical to managing arthritis effectively, and they canrecommend a much wider range of treatment options.

Your chiropractor can play an importantrole, not only in relieving pain, but also in helping patients with arthritis continue to live a more independent, active lifestyle.  For many arthritis sufferers, treatment still begins with rest and medication.  

But if you have arthritis, a chiropractic physiciancan help you develop a well-rounded, long-termapproach to managing your arthritis in twoother very important ways: Designing an exercise program based on your own unique requirements.  Such a program usually focuses on a combination of goals, including (1) restoring any lost range of motion in your joints, (2) improving your flexibility and endurance, and (3) increasing your muscle tone and strength.   Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated that inactivity can make joints affected by arthritis even more painful and stiff.  It can also have other negative health effects.   A properly designed and supervised exercise program can reduce these risks.

Some research indicates that certain foods can have a role in either increasing or suppressing the body’s natural inflammatory response.  Making adjustments to your diet may reduce swelling, redness and pain related to arthritis.
