Dr. Robert David DC Chiropraticien can help reduce the pain caused by osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative problem characterized by joint wear and tear. The most common symptoms are pain and tenderness to the touch, swelling and localized heat, loss of mobility, joint stiffness following an activity, crackling.
To relieve this discomfort, your chiropractor performs a treatment that aims to re-educate the musculoskeletal and nervous system. These techniques are intended to improve the joint biomechanics of the spine (or other joints), i.e. by improving joint mobility and poor postures that can cause joint misalignment. Thus, he helps to slow the progression of osteoarthritis symptoms and improve autonomy and quality of life.
