Arthritis FAQ

At Vitality Chiropractic, we offer chiropractic care for a variety of conditions, including arthritis. Vitality Chiropractic’s main office in Littleton Colorado serves Highlands Ranch, Centennial, and surrounding communities.

Arthritis is a medical condition characterized by joint stiffness and sharp pain and is the leading cause of disability in the US. It affects the quality of one’s life and has the potential to become a serious disability. The CDC reports that nearly one-quarter of the adults in the United States have been medically diagnosed with arthritis. This translates to more than 58 million people in raw numbers. Of those afflicted, more than 43% report limitations in their life due to arthritis. Following are the answers to several questions our chiropractor frequently receives regarding arthritis.

Can arthritis be cured?

While a cure for arthritis has yet to be discovered, advances in medicine and technology have significantly improved treatments, which has made it easier to manage the condition. Those with inflammatory arthritis benefit most when diagnosed and treated early.

What is the most common type of arthritis?

According to the NIH, osteoarthritis is the most common form of joint disorder. It is thought to arise from several critical issues at play, like weight, injury, gender, age, genetics, bone density, or muscle weakness, among others. Many of these contributing factors are controlled entirely by you. Take the following measures to avoid arthritis:-

  • Stay active
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Feed your body nutritious food.
  • See a chiropractor regularly for guidance and treatment
