Arthritis affects millions of people. Some people can live with it and it doesn't cause any problems, however, most people are not so lucky. Arthritis is when more bone is produced to limit the movement of the joints. Throughout the healthcare community, it is understood that arthritis is most prevalent in the inactive population. Muscles, tendons and ligaments become weak and cannot support the joints as effectively as they should. To help prevent arthritis an active lifestyle needs to be incorporated.
If you already have arthritis, you should become more active to help slow down the progression of arthritis. You should also visit Richard Williams Chiropractic and begin chiropractic care with Dr. Williams. Chiropractic care can help identify areas with arthritis and help get the joints moving properly again, which can decrease the pain so you can increase your activity level. Chiropractic cannot ever reverse the causes of arthritis but it can help slow the progression down and help you relieve the pain.
