In fact, alot of research has shown that having joints that do not move properly, or do not move enough, can cause Arthritis. Chiropractic treatments often involve restoring normal motion to the joints. This means, regular chiropractic treatment may in fact reduce the chance of getting arthritis in the neck, or any other area, because it keeps joints moving properly.

Can chiropractors help arthritis?

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.
