Chiropractic

The chiropractic treatment for arthritis depends on whether the chiropractor is a "straight" chiropractor or a "mixed" chiropractor. (See Chiropractic Infocenter in Holisticonline.com to learn the differences int he two approaches.)

Straight chiropractors treat arthritis by manipulating the spine to correct subluxation and other imbalances, thus allowing the body to heal itself.

The mixed chiropractor will likely treat arthritis with a combination of spinal manipulation and other therapies. Mixed chiropractors will carefully evaluate a patient in order to determine the cause of the arthritis. In some cases, the problem may be related to an injury that happened many years ago that resulted in several vertebra to fuse together in the spine.

The mixed chiropractor may manipulate the spine in order to: 1) "free" the fused vertebra, if necessary and 2) realign the damaged areas above and below, allowing the spine to operate properly in the future. 
Mixed chiropractors may also call for physical therapy, nutritional supplements to help you rebuild your back muscles and overall health, stretching and strengthening exercises and spine maintenance education (how to walk, sit, lift, etc.).
