Arthritic Pain or Spondylosis
Any degenerative changes in the spine may be known as spondylosis. Arthritis means inflammation of the joints, however; many people and practitioners use the term ‘arthritis’ to mean general wear and tear that we all, given enough time, will get in the bones, joints and discs of the spine and body. There are many forms of arthritis including osteoarthritis, which is due to wear and tear on the joint surfaces which can lead on to cause inflammation and stiffening of joints.
Although Chiropractors are known to predominately treat the spine their training also incorporates assesment and treatment of all the joints in the body.
Chiropractors cannot cure arthritis as we cannot grow the bones back to the way they once were, however by treating the joints and surrounding tissues patients may benefit from treatment.
At the Milton Keynes Chiropractic Clinic, we perform a thorough history taking and full examination (which involves chiropractic, orthopaedic, neurological and postural assessments and may even involve us taking X-rays of you) . Your first appointment will take approximately 1 hour.
