How we can help?

Although there is no known cure for arthritis, there are many treatments that can help alleviate the effects of the condition. 

Many clients undergo surgical procedures, such as arthroplasty, arthodesis or osteotomy, which either replace or fuse joints as well as cutting and re-aligning bones.  In many cases, sufferers are prescribed painkillers and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

However, treatments such as sports massage and regular chiropractic care are far less invasive treatments and have been proven to slow the condition progress and minimise damage to joints, as well as alleviating stiffness and joint pain.

"My flexibility in my neck and shoulders was very poor when I first came to the clinic and was preventing me from certain exercises.
Now I can return to things I haven’t been able to do for several years."

What is arthritis?

Arthritis is a common condition that causes pain and inflammation in the joints.  It’s estimated that within the UK over 10 million people of all ages suffer from some form of arthritis.

Arthritis is a common condition that causes pain and inflammation in the joints.  It’s estimated that within the UK over 10 million people of all ages suffer from some form of arthritis.

The two most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis in the UK, affecting around 8 million people.  In the majority of cases, osteoarthritis develops in people over 50 years of age, although it can develop at any age from a joint-related injury or medical condition.  Osteoarthritis affects the smooth cartilage lining of the joints, causing stiffness, which makes everyday movements difficult and often very painful.  In osteoarthritis, the cartilage (connective tissue) between the bones gradually erodes, often causing the joints in the sufferer’s hands, spine, knees and hips to rub together.

In the UK, rheumatoid arthritis affects over 400,000 people and much like osteoarthritis, it often develops in people who are between 40 and 50 years of age.  Women are three times more likely to be affected than men and unlike osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis occurs when the body’s immune system targets affected joints, which leads to pain and swelling.  Initially, the outer covering of the joint is affected but the condition can then spread across the joint, leading to further swelling and an altering of the shape of the joint, which causes both the bone and cartilage to break down.

Other types of Arthritis

Although osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are the two most common types of arthritis, other types of arthritis and related conditions include:

Ankylosing spondylitis:
This is a long-term inflammatory condition, which affects the bones, muscles and ligaments of the spine. This condition can also cause swelling of the tendons, eyes and large joints.

Cervical spondylosis:
This is often referred to as degenerative osteoarthritis; cervical spondylitis affects the joints and bones in the neck.

Fibromyalgia:
This condition causes pain in the body’s muscles, ligaments and tendons (for more information, see our health condition section on Fibromyalgia).

Psoriatic arthritis:
An inflammatory joint condition, which can affect people with psoriasis.

Secondary arthritis:
A form of arthritis, which can occur after a joint injury.

Don’t put up with pain, discomfort and loss of mobility for a moment longer. 

Reclaiming your flexibility, feeling great again, and living a life without pain is just a few clicks away.

What are the symptoms of arthritis?

You’ll experience differing symptoms depending on the type of arthritis you suffer from. This makes it fundamental to receive an accurate arthritis diagnosis in order to receive the appropriate arthritis treatment.

It’s crucial that you seek professional help if you suffer from any of the following symptoms:

  • Joint pain, tenderness and stiffness

  • Inflammation in and around the joints

  • Restricted movement of the joints

  • Warm, red skin over the affected joint

  • Weakness and muscle deterioration
