About Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis in the knee and hip area can be very painful and if left untreated become a chronic condition. Chiropractic care can be very helpful for patients who have been unable to find relief for their hip and knee osteoarthritis. Patients find chiropractic treatment to reduce inflammation, reduce pain, improve joint function and strengthen the muscles around the affected joints.
