What's Super for your Arthritic Problems? CHIRO...
Happy Super Bowl Everyone. This fun entertainment spectacle brings lifting of your wings to your mouths and sitting watching the game, drinking your cans of beer with your head back into extension, even tossing the old pig skin around kicking up old shoulder pain. All of these things can be connected too- Osteoarthritis.
Their are different forms of arthritis- Osteo being by far the most common. Unfortunately, over time and repetitive usage our joints become less fluid. The joint spaces decrease, the disks get thinner, the bone spurs grow, the cartilage lessens, etc. etc. (This is not to bum you out, this is to put a smile on your face).
Not that chiropractic is the answer to take away Arthritis, but the number one thing to do to lessen the effect of these arthritic changes- is "Keep them moving."
Stretching, exercising, walking, moving- this is what is best for the arthritic joint. So, it goes without saying but I will say it anyways, chiropractic should be included in any ones treatment for their arthritic symptoms because the essence behind chiropractic is helping with function and movement.
Please call the office if you or anyone you know or work with is battling with arthritic symptoms and is not sure what to do. We are here to help.
Yours in good health,
