Kanata Chiropractors Can Help With Osteoarthritis

According to the American Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (November 2006, Vol. 85, No.11, pp. S2-S11, “Osteoarthritis – Epidemiology, Risk Factors, and Pathophysiology”), “osteoarthritis (OA) is the most prevalent form of arthritis and a major cause of disability in people aged 65 and older.”

“Injuries that alter mechanical or joint alignment may also predispose individuals to OA at other sites.”

“Other risk factors for post traumatic arthritis include high body mass, high level of activity, and residual joint instability or malalignment.”

If there is a loss of the normal joint bio-mechanics, this results in the joint being more vulnerable to osteoarthritis.

These are just a few facts as to why we do spinal reconstructive chiropractic care at the clinic. Are you suffering from osteoarthritis or know of someone who is? Chiropractic may be able to help you or them live pain free!
