Arthritis is inflammation of one or more of your joints.
Osteoarthritis is usually caused by normal wear and tear, while rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder.
Other types of arthritis can be caused by uric acid crystals, infections or even an underlying disease — such as psoriasis (psoriatic arthritis)or lupus. Also see highlighted disorders for more information.
Treatments vary, depending on the type of arthritis. The main goals of arthritis treatments are to reduce symptoms and improve quality of life through specific, gentle chiropractic care, home exercises and in-clinic physiotherapy.
