Arthrosis

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis (OA), which is also known as osteoarthrosis or degenerative joint disease (DJD), is a progressive disorder of the joints caused by gradual loss of cartilage and resulting in the development of bony spurs at the margins of the joints. The name osteoarthritis comes from three Greek words meaning bone, joint, and inflammation.

An estimated 95% of osteoarthritic patients also have misaligned joints. Chiropractic manipulative therapy also increases the mobility of the joint which can help improve joint stiffness and lack of motion. We also recommend stretches and exercises for our patients and advise on how to protect your back.


Arthrosis

Arthrosis is a normal degenerative condition associated with aging. It affects mainly cartilage which becomes rugged, irregular and worn out. This wearing out of cartilage can cause pain, loss of mobility and loss of muscle strength.

The general rule with osteoarthritis or arthrosis is if you don’t move it, you lose it.
