Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis

REDUCTION IN COMPLAINTS

Wear and tear, also called osteoarthritis, on the spine is what plaque is to teeth: even if we brush and do our best to prevent it, deposits can still form on teeth. With osteoarthritis, the cartilage that sits between the vertebrae becomes less. Thus, nothing can be done about the osteoarthritis itself, but a regular visit to the chiropractor can greatly reduce osteoarthritis symptoms, thereby providing relief.

CAUSES

The most common causes of osteoarthritis are:

  • an accident that causes damage to joints
  • congenital defect of cartilage
  • presence of joint disorders
  • essive joint mobility/muscle weakness
  • heredity
  • old age
  • obesity
  • physical strain in strenuous occupation

What to expect

Intake

During the intake, we will discuss your symptoms in detail and perform a scan of the spine. We show the results and we explain where subluxations occur and exactly what that means.

We also look at your posture and muscle tone. After the examination, you will immediately receive your first correction. Often quite a relief after which you will experience more freedom of movement.

Intensive Period

We will always recommend an intensive start-up period. Whether you suffer from many symptoms or not, it is important that your body learns to adopt and maintain proper posture. When there is too much time between the first corrections, it is more difficult to build this memory.

Once your spine gets used to the new alignment, we enter a less intense phase.

Maintenance phase

Usually, after the intensive period, it is enough to return monthly for what we call “maintenance. In fact, due to everyday stresses of life, we all get “stuck” on a regular basis. Some people like to come more often or less often.

What works for you is very personal, we will find out what works well for you.

Chiropractic also works well for

Headaches and migraines

Tension headaches are the most common type of headache. The pain is often oppressive and is usually located on both sides of the head. It also happens that the pain is only on one side of the head. In tension headaches, the muscles in the neck and upper back are often very tense. This tension often radiates to the head and can contribute to headaches.

Neck pain

Neck pain can be one of the most frustrating and debilitating complaints. It can prevent you from enjoying life, and it can complicate your daily tasks.

At TOPCHIRO, we believe that you don’t have to live with neck pain, and we know how to help you.

There are many different types of neck pain; each type has its own cause. We will discuss them all here, as well as how chiropractic care can help relieve your neck pain.

There are two types of neck pain: acute and chronic. Acute neck pain is usually caused by an injury or trauma to the neck, while chronic neck pain is usually caused by repetitive motion or stress on the spine.
