Benefits of chiropractic for Arthrosis

Reduces premature degeneration of the cartilage surrounding the joints
Helps to increase movement within the joints which aides in decreasing pain
Correctly aligns the body allowing for correct posture and decreased pressure on the affected area


Arthrosis or osteoarthritis is the the degeneration of the cartilage around the effected joints. Symptoms can start slowly and only become noticeable when the arthritic joint is being moved. Arthrosis can also progress over time to become a continuous pain felt all the time, even at rest.

When the cartilage degenerates, the body will begin laying bone around the joint to help stabilize the area, causing the joint to deform and become painful.

Chiropractic has been demonstrated to be an effective, natural therapy to help prevent and decrease symptoms of arthrosis. Because chiropractic is a safe and effective remedy, people of all ages, can find benefits for articular pains and disorders.

What causes arthrosis?

Genetic factors
Problems with cartilage production

Sitting for prolonged periods
Playing sports with incorrect equipment
Overloading the joint (bad posture, obesity, overworking the joint)

“Given the detrimental effects of NSAIDs on joints and other organs, their use should be discouraged and their classification as a first choice conservative treatment should be abolished. A truly effective and conservative approach to the treatment of osteoarthritis should include chiropractic manipulation, essential nutrient supplementation,….”
