Arthritis is a common condition affecting one in six Australians. While most believe that arthritis only affects our senior citizens the majority of people with arthritis are between the ages of 15 and 60, meaning that it should be a consideration for most Australians who are presenting joint pain and inflammation.
At Incline Health our chiropractic treatments don’t only focus on the health of the spine but on the health of the body as a whole. Our treatments centre on how the different interconnected systems of the body affect each other and in turn affect the experience and severity of your arthritis. Chiropractic treatments have had a proven impact on reducing the symptoms of arthritis and helping your body manage the condition naturally, making it an important part of the first line of defence against the disease.

While commonly treatment for arthritis involves medication for pain such as medical narcotics (opioids), chiropractic treatment aims to target the symptoms of arthritis in a gentle, natural and non-invasive manner.
Arthritis can cause swelling, joint restrictions, muscle tension and impaired mobility. At Incline Health the aim of chiropractic treatments is to help reduce pain and stimulate mobility in the body by gently relieving the strain on the nervous system and realigning the affected areas of the spine. This is intended to improve the function of the body as a whole and give your body the ability to better manage the symptoms of arthritis.
The core of our treatment for arthritis is gentle chiropractic manipulation of the spine to help realign the body and ease tension in tortured joints. We also offer significant pain management protocols including physical therapy, dry needling and pain management advice to be used outside of the clinic.
