Arthritis Q & A

What is arthritis?

Arthritis is a degenerative disease that affects the health and function of your joints. While there are over 100 types of arthritis, the two most common types include:


Osteoarthritis is a condition that develops when the cartilage that lines the ends of your joint bones breaks down and wears away. The loss of cartilage allows your bones to rub together, creating friction, inflammation, and pain.

Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory disease that causes persistent swelling in your joints. Joints become stiff and inflexible, which can affect your long-term mobility.

When should I consider chiropractic care for arthritis?

You should schedule an evaluation at Dabbs Rehab Center of MD if you have persistent arthritis symptoms that medications can no longer treat. These symptoms can include:

  • Joint pain

  • Swelling

  • Stiffness

  • Loss of range of motion

You can also consider chiropractic care to reduce your reliance on arthritis medications.

The providers review your medical history and assess your joints’ function. Based on your wellness goals and the severity of your symptoms, they create a treatment plan to restore your joint health.

Chiropractic care

Chiropractic care involves different techniques to align your spine and joints. Chiropractic adjustments efficiently ease joint inflammation and reduce pressure on nearby nerves that trigger pain.

The providers also use soft tissue mobilization to optimize the function of the muscles that support your joints.

Functional medicine

Functional medicine uses food as medicine to naturally reduce inflammation in your body. Over the course of a year-long program, the providers can eliminate harmful chemicals from your body that contribute to rheumatoid arthritis inflammation and pain.

Regular chiropractic adjustments keep your spine healthy and boost blood circulation in your body to prevent arthritis from worsening. Through a functional medicine program, you also learn what foods to eat to minimize inflammation in your joints and throughout your body
