Anyone can get arthritis, including children, though many people never experience any symptoms of this systemic disease when they develop it.
The current medical approach to arthritis is to treat the symptoms as much as possible through exercises in warm water and use of heat packs or painkillers to alleviate pain.
While chiropractic treatments cannot treat arthritis itself, having a chiropractor remove any vertebral subluxations can play an important role in reducing the associated symptoms.
There is no known cure for arthritis at this time, nor is there a specific underlying cause that is known to cause it. Some cases have simply disappeared from patients for no discernable reason.
