Arthritis Q & A

What is arthritis?

Arthritis refers to joint pain or joint disease; it is the leading cause of disability in America. It is more common among women, but arthritis can affect people of all ages, sexes, and races. Common arthritis symptoms include:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Decreased range of motion

Symptoms can range from mild to severe and can progressively worsen over time. When arthritis becomes severe, it can result in chronic pain and inability to do daily activities such as walking or climbing stairs.

Are there different types of arthritis?

There are more than 100 different forms of arthritis that can affect different areas of the body. The most common types include:


  • Osteoarthritis (OA) -- Associated with a breakdown of cartilage in joints. It is most common in weight-bearing joints in the hips, knees, and spine, but OA can occur in almost any joint in the body. It also affects the fingers, thumb, neck, and large toe.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) -- Rheumatoid arthritis distresses the lining of the joints. It causes painful swelling eventually resulting in bone loss and joint deformity.
  • Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) -- Psoriatic arthritis can develop in those who have the skin condition known as psoriasis. It causes joint pain, stiffness, and swelling.

How does chiropractic care provide arthritis pain relief?

Chiropractic care incorporates drug-free, non-invasive techniques for treating the pain associated with arthritis. The Back & Body Clinic also employs a holistic approach which can supplement treatments. To help patients achieve long-term health, your provider may recommend nutritional supplementation, diet, and exercise. These changes in lifestyle can affect the patient’s overall health and, subsequently, arthritis.
