Chiropractic helps Osteoarthritis.  According to Chiro.org, the University of Maryland once published an abstract showing the benefits of chiropractic care.  However, before I continue, I need to be clear about this next point.  In fact, I’ll state it twice.  There is not cure for osteoarthritis.  Let me say that again.  There is no cure for osteoarthritis.  However, the abstract does say the following:

“Although there is no evidence that chiropractic care can reverse the joint degeneration that causes OA, studies indicate that spinal manipulation can:

  • increase range of motion
  • restore normal movement of the spine
  • relax the muscles
  • improve joint coordination
  • reduce pain”

Since the major symptoms of arthritis are stiffness and pain, it stands to reason that chiropractic is a powerful ally in maintaining your active lifestyle.  In fact, this is particularly true if you suffer from arthritis.  However, it’s also important to remember that there are several causes to arthritis.  In fact, one of them is nutritional.  This is why I take a unique approach to supporting healthy joint function and repair.  In fact, this approach is crucial if you suffer from arthritis.

Using Tried & True Science for Nutrition

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition, we use science to support healthy joint function and repair.  We use a unique combination of enzyme nutrition, dietary changes, a carefully selected home exercise program, and traditional or low force chiropractic care to support healthy joint function and repair.  Why?  Because research shows that chiropractic helps osteoarthritis. Even if you already suffer from the maladies of arthritis, we can provide some support for healthy joint function.

A Complete Approach

Since arthritis is not reversible, your best ally is prevention.  However, whether you’re trying to prevent arthritis, or trying to keep it from impacting your life, here is a unique and effective approach.  In fact, the secret to preventing arthritis is three things: movement, diet, and enzymes.  Movement keeps your joints healthy.  In fact, chiropractic care is key in restoring and maintaining normal healthy joint movement.  Why is movement important?  Because movement helps your joints squeeze out waste and siphon in vital nutrients.  This is how chiropractic helps osteoarthritis.  Since sugar also causes arthritis, just learned, keeping your carbs under control is also key.  However, since protein builds and repairs joints, you also have to make sure you eat enough protein.

So, where exactly do enzymes come in?  When it comes to healthy joint function, enzymes play two key roles.  First, the right enzymes can help your body process sugar properly.  Since sugar causes arthritis, your body needs help breaking it down and getting rid of the excess.  As a result, sugar won’t build up in the joints and wear them down.  Furthermore, yet other enzymes help your body use protein properly for healthy joint repair.

Enzymes help Sciatica

Enzymes help Sciatica.  Sciatic is a life-limiting condition causing pain, weakness and/or numbness down one or both legs.  It can affect work, sleep play, and your overall quality of life.  In addition to classical chiropractic and physical therapy, research shows enzymes support healthy spinal and nerve function.

Enzymes help Sciatica.  Several studies provide evidence that the right enzymes can help with various forms of chronic pain, including osteoarthritis, sciatica and low back pain.  Studies enrolling a total of more than 400 people compared a specific enzyme to the standard anti-inflammatory drug for the treatment of osteoarthritis low back pain and sciatica.  The results generally showed the benefits with the supplement to be about the same as with the medication. However, none of these studies included a placebo group.   Because of this experts require more research before they can draw any solid conclusion.

If you decide to visit our office for sciatica or related issues, the first thing we will do is sit down with you and talk.  The purpose is to find out the severity of your problem, and how it limits your life.  Specifically, how it affects your work, family and play time.  Then we will perform a detailed examination to uncover the root cause of your suffering.  If necessary, we will order any necessary imaging.  If you already have x-rays or MRI’s we will request them.  Either way we will perform a thorough review.  Once we’ve identified the cause, we will put a specific plan in place based on the type of impingement you suffer from. This includes the right specific chiropractic corrections, home exercises, specific traction and enzyme nutrition.  And of course, if you are a surgical candidate, we will provide you with an appropriate referral.

This combined approach has several advantages.  First of all, it helps heal ALL of the involved tissues.  Second, it helps your body digest absorb and use vital nutrients essential to tissue repair.  These tissues include bones, nerves, muscles (tendons) and ligaments.  When you address the problem from all four angles, your chances of success go way up.

Call us for a Consult
