Bone spurs (osteophytes) are bony projections that form off of bones in and along joints, and are often seen with arthritis. Bone spurs can limit joint motion and can cause joint pain. Bone spurs form when the body tries to increase the surface area of the joint to better distribute weight across a joint surface that has been damaged by arthritis. To slow formation and alleviate symptoms, it has been shown that joint motion improves nutrition to the tissue and maintains the health of the joint.
Did you hear that..."joint motion" improves nutrition for the health of the joint. Chiropractic care is the only health profession focused on joint motion by reducing fibrosis of repair (scar tissue). Many of us think Chiropractic is spinal related only. This couldn't be further from the truth. Chiropractors are highly trained in caring for every joint in the body including the ears! If you or someone you know has arthritis (aka degenerative joint disease), give WellnessOne a call and ask about our internet special! Or better yet, check it out at wellnessoneofredding.com!
