If you’re dealing with shoulder osteoarthritis, you know how painful and debilitating it can be. Luckily, chiropractic care offers a natural and non-invasive option to help manage the pain and improve your quality of life. But what is it about chiropractic care that makes it so helpful? Let’s take a closer look.
One of the main benefits of chiropractic care for shoulder osteoarthritis is its ability to reduce inflammation in the joint by realigning the vertebrae in your neck to reduce nerve irritation and pressure. This is done through a series of gentle spinal manipulations, or adjustments. These adjustments work to restore mobility, reduce pain, and prevent further damage. For example, if the vertebrae are out of alignment due to muscle tension caused by posture issues or injury, those spinal adjustments can help restore proper movement in that joint area.
In addition to spinal manipulations, your chiropractor may also recommend therapeutic exercises as part of your treatment plan. These exercises are designed to strengthen the muscles around your affected joints, helping them better support your body and improve your range of motion while reducing pain levels. Furthermore, therapeutic exercises can help improve coordination which will make everyday activities easier and less painful for you.
Another important component of chiropractic care for shoulder osteoarthritis is nutritional counseling from an experienced practitioner such as a registered dietitian (RD). Nutrition plays an important role in managing osteoarthritis symptoms and promoting overall health; Your RD can provide personalized guidance on specific foods or supplements that may be beneficial for managing your condition. Additionally, they may suggest lifestyle changes such as weight loss or stress reduction techniques that can also help improve your quality of life.
Suffering from shoulder osteoarthritis? Chiropractic care offers a natural solution to manage both the pain and other symptoms associated with this condition. It works by providing gentle spinal manipulations along with therapeutic exercises and nutrition coaching —all designed to reduce inflammation in the joint while improving the range of motion and strengthening the muscles around it. When combined together into one comprehensive treatment plan, chiropractic care can make an enormous difference when it comes to improving quality of life while living with shoulder osteoarthritis.
