Most people suffering from arthritis might not think of chiropractic care as a treatment option for relief. The truth is, many people suffering from arthritis of the hands, knees, shoulders, hips, ankles and spine can find relief with joint mobilization. Think of arthritis as rusting and locking of the joints. The more mobile the joint, the less likely it is to lose its range of motion or "lock up". Gentle movement of these joints restores range of motion and allows normal biomechanics. The rolling stone collects no moss, so a properly moving joint is less likely to freeze up due to arthritic pain.
