Quick Arthritis Quiz

Take our 2 minute arthritis quiz to find out what kind of arthritis you might have, and what can be done for relief.

 You are not alone! Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis, affecting nearly five million Canadians (one in six). Those numbers are increasing: an estimated one in four Canadians will have OA by 2035. Symptoms include morning stiffness, pain that decreases with movement, swelling, and clicking or cracking within the joint itself.

Facts About Osteoarthritis (OA)

OA is more common in older adults. Factors that can contribute to or accelerate the process of osteoarthritis is being overweight, previous injuries, and significant overuse. For many, the assumption is that it is impossible to prevent arthritis of this kind. They feel that arthritis pain and its symptoms are just a normal part of ageing and that it goes hand in hand with typical expected “wear and tear” on the body.

The term arthritis is actually “arthro” meaning joint, “itis” meaning inflammation, so joint inflammation. OA shouldn’t be confused with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) which is an auto-immune disease and affects a much smaller percentage of the population. Osteoarthritis is characterized by the “wear and tear” of the cartilage in a joint. This can occur in the joints of the extremities or the spine because the joints are not aligned or biomechanically efficient.

What Can You Do Right Now?

In order to manage arthritis pain symptoms, regular exercise and optimal nutrition are key to properly “feed” your joints with the right nutrients and create proper lubrication of the joints. Proper movement of all joints is key to not only pain relief but also from a proprioceptive point of view as joints that are restricted in motion are not sending the proper feedback to the brain and can affect how we perceive our own body position in our environment; this can lead to even more abnormal position, misalignment, pain and—you guessed it—worsened osteoarthritis.

One answer is to be proactive about taking care of your joints at a younger age so you don’t have to do arthritis pain treatment later. Taking precautions in your 20s, 30s, and 40s will help to reduce the impact and prevent arthritis from lowering the quality of life in your 50s, 60s, and 70s. Even people who experience daily pain and limited motion today can benefit greatly from chiropractic care; it is never too late!

Or, it’s arthritis and there is nothing that can be done?

Perhaps that you should just learn to live with it?

It doesn’t have to be that way. There are a number of things that you can do to prevent, treat or get relief from OA. Prevalence doesn’t mean normal, so what if I told you you can get help to redefine your own normal?

Imagine being pain-free for a moment and what it would change in your life. Whether it is for the joints of the spine or the joints of the extremities, chiropractic care can help you stay in better alignment. Therefore, reducing your chances of abnormal wear and tear.
