Can chiropractic treatment help if my joints are already worn?
Chiropractic treatment cannot reverse any damage or wear that has already taken place to the joint but your chiropractor can help to improve muscle and joint function around the area. By spreading the load and taking excessive strain away from the degenerative joints pain and stiffness can be reduced . This can be achieved by specific gentle manipulation and mobilisations of the joints.
The chiropractor can, and often will offer advice and education regarding correct lifestyle changes that may also need to take place in order to optimise recovery and reduce pain, further enhancing treatment.
