Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints and can affect one or multiple joints in the body. The word “Arth” means joint, and “itis” means inflammation of. There have been more than 100 different types of arthritis identified. The most common two types are osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
Chiropractic arthritis treatment is an holistic way to take the edge off those inflamed and painful joints. Chiropractors, like Dr. Fenton, focus on the relationships between structures and functions of the body. If the structure of the joint is not right then it cannot work as it was intended. Chiropractic arthritis treatment maximizes the function of an arthritic joint with the goal to restore a patient's’ function so they can have the kind of life they want.
Once correction of the Vertebral Subluxation Complex begins, the function of your body can improve on every level. Correcting the condition will produce better health, reduce disease, infirmities, and pain, thereby increasing your overall well being.
Elimination of the Vertebral Subluxation Complex can produce better spinal function and improve all aspects of the spine (i.e. muscles, ligaments, cartilage and discs) so that they become healthier. Posture and body balance can improve and subluxation degeneration can be slowed, stopped and sometimes reversed. Better spinal health results in better organ and tissue health.
The spine is the core of the body and it is the pathway by which all of our human systems communicate. Proper alignment of the spine ensures that those systems can communicate fully without impedance. Dr. Fenton can help you gain excellent spine health and alignment through spinal manipulation, vitamin therapy and other methods that allow the body to rejuvenate and protect itself.
In a 2013 study published in Osteoarthritis and Cartilage found that patients education combined with 12 chiropractic treatments (twice a week for six weeks) were more effective for hip OA than a daily stretching program or patient education aone. Dr. Fenton has helped many patients who suffer from arthritis by focusing on:
- Helping them improve their range of motion
- Improving flexibility and endurance
- Providing education, nutritional advice, and supplementation to address inflammation in the joints and body
