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.
