Arthritis And Chiropractic Care

by Chiropractors Brighton on May 15, 2012

‘Arthritis cases set to double to 17m by 2030′ according to BBC news/health

Further to an article on the BBC news/health website 09 May 2012 ( the United Chiropractic Association believes Chiropractors can have a significant impact on the quality of life of individuals suffering from osteoarthritis.

 Unfortunately, one of the common symptoms of all types of arthritis, is pain. According to new research published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, seeing a chiropractor for chiropractic care and undertaking light exercise was a more effective form of pain relief than medications like aspirin and ibuprofen.

 This study reported that 63% of patients seeing a rheumatologist for rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia, sought out some sort of complementary care and alternative medicine (CAM). Of these individuals, 31% visited a chiropractor making chiropractic therapy the most popular alternative arthritic pain relief therapy used by this group of individuals. Importantly, 73% of these patients determined that chiropractic care was helpful in controlling their chronic pain.

 Although osteoarthritis is not life threatening, the ability to control pain relief through chiropractic care will not only reduce the financial burden on the NHS but more importantly improve the lifestyle of those who are suffering from this disease and may in some cases delay the necessity to take early retirement.
