Arthritis and benefits of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractors focus on the relationships between structure and function, explains Robert Hayden, DC, PhD, a spokesperson for the American Chiropractic Association who has been in private practice for 22 years. They are different from an osteopath, who uses manual manipulations but also treats the entire body and may use medication or surgery.
The thinking is simple, he says. If the structure of a joint is not right then it can’t work as it was designed. “The place where chiropractic really shines is in maximizing the function of an arthritic joint,” he adds. “Our goal is to restore patients’ function so they can have the kind of life they want.”

Why is Posture Important?
Appearance benefits with good posture are obvious, but there are many less-obvious health benefits you should know. Good posture can:
-Maintain correct alignment of bones and joints
-Reduce stress on ligaments, minimizing risk of injury
-Prevent muscle strain, overuse and pain
-Conserve energy as muscles are used more efficiently
-Decrease abnormal joint wear
Research has shown that poor postures may increase feelings of depression, affect your digestive tract and influence confidence and stress levels.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help Treat Osteoporosis
Chiropractors commonly treat patients who have had nervous system disorders and musculoskeletal disorders, such as osteoporosis.
Common treatments they use include adjustments (spinal manipulation), relaxation techniques, rehabilitative exercises, and counseling about nutrition and dietary supplements.
But what type of chiropractic care will you need to treat osteoporosis? That all depends on your age and how advanced your osteoporosis is—for example, a post-menopausal woman with osteoporosis may need spinal manipulation, bone-building exercises, and dietary supplements (eg, calcium and vitamin D to build bone). Your chiropractic care plan with be tailored to you and your needs.
