Arthritis of the spine is a condition where the protective cartilage in the joints of the spine degenerate and cause inflammation, leading to bone-on-bone contact. If you have been diagnosed with this condition, we know how much stress it can add to your life. At USA Spine Care, our team is committed to helping you find a treatment that allows you to get your life back from chronic back pain. Read the following article to learn more about arthritis of the spine and the conservative and surgical treatments available to provide you with lasting relief from this condition.
How chiropractic care can help
Using chiropractic manipulation to treat arthritis of the spine can be a beneficial method to restoring movement. A chiropractic approach includes massages and adjustments to help ease pressure on the joints. Other conservative measures such as weight management, low-impact exercises and a healthy diet plan may also be useful in treating arthritis of the spine without the need for pain medication which can carry potentially dangerous side effects.
Surgical treatments for arthritis of the spine
If chiropractic therapy and other conservative treatments do not provide adequate relief, then surgical intervention may become necessary. If this is the case for you, contact USA Spine Care to learn about what sets us apart as the leader in minimally invasive spine surgery. At USA Spine Care, our procedures offer a shorter recovery period and a lower risk of complication, along with a safer and effective alternative to traditional open spine surgery.^
Since 2005, we have helped more than 75,000 patients find relief from chronic neck or back surgery. Depending on the severity of the arthritis of the spine, our highly skilled surgeons are able to remove a portion of the arthritic disc or remove the entire disc to decompress the impacted nerve root, thereby relieving the symptoms associated with this condition. Reach out to our dedicated team today and ask for a no-cost MRI review* to determine if you are a potential candidate for one of our minimally invasive procedures. We can help guide you on your journey to wellness.
