Chiropractic Care for Degenerative Joint Disease

Degenerative Joint Disease

Degenerative joint disease is also known as osteoarthritis. Bony spurs can develop as the spine degenerates. This happens when the cartilage becomes rough and worn out, causing the joints to rub against each other, creating inflammation, pain, stiffness, loss of motion and ultimately the formation of bone spurs.

The fluid lubricant may become thin and the joint lining swollen and inflamed. This is the most common form of arthritis, the most frequently disabling, and often the most painful. Avoiding and stopping any progression of spinal degenerative change is a primary goal of chiropractic care. All anatomical joints can be affected, commonly weight bearing joints (hips and knees) as well as hands, elbows, knees and feet.
