Hip and knee pain associated with arthritis
Arthritis or osteoarthritis is a progressive condition that over time leads to a wearing down of the cartilage within the joints which puts more stress and load across the local muscles that over time weakens the area and further adds to the problem.
.Whilst there is always a genetic component, you and your chiropractor need to assess those lifestyle choices and habits that are contributing to the problem. By making appropriate changes, engaging in deep tissue work and joint mobilisation that your body can start making changes thta will halt the progression of the condition and go some ways towards reducing the level of pain and increasing the movement of the local joints.
There is no cure, but with ongoing and proactive treatment and care, you don’t have to have symptoms on a daily basis.
