While there is no cure for arthritis, people who suffer from arthritis – in particular osteoarthritis or Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD) – often possess joints that are subluxated or “locked up” due to cartilage breakdown. The resulting pain occurs when the exposed joint irritates the joint nerves. These irritated nerves may prevent a person from healing in an effective manner. Specific chiropractic techniques can help relieve pain from arthritis by safely correcting the “locked up” or subluxated joints. Also, these regular adjustments can help keep arthritic individuals more mobile and in turn, these manipulations can reduce potential stresses that can cause further discomfort.

Dr. Kesselman utilizes a combination of manipulation and other techniques to help provide natural arthritis pain relief. These additional therapies can include: nutritional therapy (to help with pain and inflammation), exercise therapy (to aid with strength and flexibility), soft tissue therapy (to obtain healthier muscle mass), and electrical stimulation therapy (to help with pain management).
