Arthritis in the layman’s language is pain in the bones affecting the joints in particular. Hundreds of types of arthritis exist which affect people across all ages. Older people are however more vulnerable to develop arthritis. Arthritis often becomes a chronic illness, rendering daily activities painful.
A very common type of arthritis, Osteoarthritis is the degeneration of the cartilages in the joints of the body. Rheumatoid is another kind of arthritis in which the human immune system attacks the cellular lining of joints, causing pain.

Symptoms of Arthritis

- Reduced mobility of joints.
- Loss of appetite (Rheumatoid Arthritis).
- Joint pain in the early morning.
Simple daily activities are rendered very painful due to arthritis. The pain associated with every movement is so intense that professional life gets affected by it. Walking, climbing stairs, and running feel like grueling tasks for the patients suffering from arthritis. The main objective of arthritis treatment for most medical professionals is reducing the pain. While the degeneration already done cannot be repaired with conventional medicine, the focus remains with preventing further damage to the joints. Chiropractic treatment is very useful for arthritis. For patients with minor joint pain, chiropractics can entirely eliminate the risk of developing the disease altogether. With massage, rest and exercise, practitioners develop the muscle strength of the affected joints and improve the deteriorated condition of them.
