Chiropractic for Arthritis
Arthritis is known by many names—but all of them indicate a condition that can be both painful and debilitating. In some manifestations, it is an autoimmune disorder of the joints, and in other it occurs when the cartilage that lines the joint surfaces wears out. In fact, it comprises over 100 diseases and conditions. Chiropractic has been proven remarkably effective in treating arthritis and its symptoms, both in genetic and non-genetic related forms of arthritis.

Testimonial of the Month
No Generic Adjustments Here!
I have had some pretty severe injuries and broken many bones (including some in my spine) so I have received chiropractic care before- but nothing like this! No generic adjustments- Dr. Helia will adjust specific vertebrae depending on what I have going on at the time and what my goals/treatment concerns are. I also admire that she relies on X-rays, Thermography, and postural assessments to determine what is going on in the body. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking health, balance, alignment, and long-term results.
To Help Support Your Spine and Strengthen Your Core!
Begin on your hands and knees, with your wrists directly under your shoulders. Breathe smoothly and evenly through your nose. Bring your thoughts to focus on the present moment.
Spread your fingers and press down through your forearms and hands. Do not let your chest collapse.
Gaze down between your hands, lengthening the back of your neck and drawing your abdominal muscles toward your spine.
Tuck your toes and step back with your feet, bringing your body and head into one straight line.
Keep your thighs lifted and take care not to let your hips sink too low. If your butt sticks up in the air, realign your body so your shoulders are directly above your wrists.
Draw your pelvic floor muscles toward your spine as you contract your abdominal muscles. Keep your head in line with your spine. Broaden across your shoulder blades and across your collarbones.
Draw down through the bases of your index fingers — do not let your hands roll open toward the pinkie fingers.
Press the front of your thighs (quadriceps) up toward the ceiling while lengthening your tailbone toward your heels.
Hold the pose while breathing smoothly for five breaths. If you are using the pose to build strength and stamina, hold for up to five minutes. To release, slowly lower onto your knees, then press back into Child’s Pose (see June Newsletter) and rest.
