Arthritis can be in any joint - your finger, hip, neck, knee, etc.Arthritis could cause cervicalgia if it is located in the spine at the level of the vertebrae in the neck. But, other things can also cause cervicalgia, such as trauma and whiplash, sprain or strain, stress and tension, etc. and not only arthritis.Cervicalgia would be the symptom, and arthritis would be one condition that could cause that symptom.

Chiropractors are well trained in the pathology, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of arthritis.Chiropractors may be able to help someone that is suffering from osteoarthritis by providing spinal manipulation or deep tissue therapy that can help relieve the associated pain and inflammation. Further, chiropractors can help by giving nutritional, suplementation or excercise advice that can help reduce pain, inflammation and/or joint space reductions.If the condition is rheumatoid arthritis, then all of the above will still apply, except for spinal manipulation, which itself is not a treatment for rheumatoid arthritisand should not be performedThus, the treatment of arthritis by a chiropractor is often judged on a case-by-case basis, and only your chiropractor will be able to tell you how much he/she can help.There is some research that suggests that keeping joints moving properly throughout life (by being active, and perhaps with regular chiropractic care) may reduce the liklihood of getting arthritis in the first place.
