Chiropractic Considerations for Arthritis

December 04, 2023

You may be familiar with some of the more well-known forms of the disease, such as osteoarthritis (OA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and psoriatic arthritis (PsA), but there are more than 100 forms of arthritis and related diseases (including gout and fibromyalgia). If a patient is experiencing active inflammation (as can happen during a flare-up), a chiropractic adjustment could be very painful—and even dangerous. There are still chiropractic treatment options for arthritis that don’t require spinal manipulation, including ultrasound, electrotherapy, low-level laser treatment, and infrared sauna rooms. Chiropractic adjustment to treat secondary pain brought on by arthritis may bring some relief.
