Often, I ask my patients what do you think is the cause of joint arthritis?
Let’s examine this a little further. In Chiropractic, there is a relevant term that we use called “Vertebral Subluxation”. Without getting into the nitty-gritty details, the Vertebral Subluxation in part represents changes in the way a joint/s of the spine moves.
Increased joint tension and altered joint movement can be caused by a traumatic event such as a car accident, sports injury, a slip or fall. It can also arise from repetitive motions at work. Even something as simple as sitting with your legs crossed for hours at a time, sleeping in abnormal positions and bending over your phone. Dr. Epstein also suggests that emotional tension plays a role in the development of spinal stress and joint fixation.
Here’s the issue: most Vertebral Subluxations do not cause pain… at least not immediately. You can have a this issue in your spine for days, months, or even years without any apparent symptoms! Ask Yourself This. What is the relationship between my symptoms/discomfort/life and my spine?
I routinely see clients in their 30’s, and 40’s who have early onset joint arthritis in their spine, knees, fingers, etc. The answer is that joint arthritis isn’t solely caused by old age. Realise that joint misalignment can happen at any age, and scar tissue and inflammation arises very quickly with unresolved trauma and sustained stress.
Have you ever been driving and hit a pothole that threw off your cars wheel alignment? What would happen if you didn’t get it realigned? Your tires would begin to wear unevenly, and the longer it stayed that way, the worse the problem would get. The same thing is important for yourself. When a patient comes to my practice who is in the very late stages of joint arthritis, we can only ever work towards symptom management!
