This type of arthritis is due to overuse, bad posture, previous trauma, and is basically excessive loading or “wear and tear” of the spinal joints. This type of arthritis cannot be reversed, but can be slowed down and the symptoms improved with chiropractic care. A huge meta-analysis, (an overview of hundreds of studies), indicated that the most effective treatment of Osteoarthritis is regular chiropractic care and specific exercises and stretches. The chronic use of anti-inflammatory medication such as Advil or Aleve is responsible for over 10,000 deaths per year. Many nutritional supplements can also help with treating this type of arthritis, and Dr. Doyle can recommend those which might be right for you.
