When our joints stop moving or we are in the same position for a long period (think how many hours people spend at a computer), our bodies begin to lose their range of motion. This is especially worse when we are sitting with bad posture, because we are now putting uneven wear and tear on our joints. Our bodies respond to the stress and pressure in a variety of ways, but ultimately it leads to make the joints more solid. This means losing range of motion and eventually creating arthritis.
To fix this, movement is key. “A body at rest will stay at rest” and we need to keep good range of motion in our joints. This includes simple activities such as stretching and exercise, but it can also be small changes such as varying the way you sit at a computer every hour. Trying to reduce repetitive motions—such as constantly leaning over to answer the phone—are also beneficial. Water exercise is a great way to improve mobility and bring arthritis relief.

Second, the chiropractor will restore the range of motion with a gentle adjustment to reduce nerve irritation and improve mobility. Finally, needle-less acupuncture is a quick and painless therapy that speeds the healing process and provides additional relief.
