It is estimated that one in every two people will get symptomatic osteoarthritis of the knee in their lifetime. As the condition progresses, it can cause chronic pain and impaired mobility. A Friendswood chiropractor provides knee osteoarthritis patients with safe, drug-free therapies that alleviate pain, reduce inflammation and enhance joint function.
Sporting activity is increasingly popular among professional athletes and individuals, which means that there is a greater risk for physical injuries. Some of the damages that are often reported include muscle strain, spasms, pinched nerves, dislocations and misalignment of the spinal column. The Friendswood chiropractor emphasizes prevention and safer methods to achieve a recovered state.
Chiropractic therapy adheres to the principle that it is possible for the body to get over illness and injury naturally provided all the interlinked parts are working optimally. It is the the nervous system which touches every body part that runs body functions. Thus the body can be manipulated through spinal cord vertebrae. One Bee Cave chiropractor has healed patients afflicted with the problem of pinched nerves following this doctrine.
