The ability to move freely directly impacts a person’s quality of life. Arthritis occurs silently due to a lack of proper movement. Arthritis in the spine decreases the ability to move without restriction and slowly diminishes a person’s quality of life. Large percentages of people suffer from joint degeneration with no possibility of reversing or recovering from the onset of this vitality vacuum.

Joint degeneration originates with a number of causes. The most predominant cause of degenerative joint problems comes from hypo-mobility. This term simply means a joint lost its full range of motion. Oftentimes this condition occurs from physical trauma or injury. A subsequent issue arises when early stages of arthritis occur with no warning signs or pain. When a joint moves even slightly out of alignment from its usual position, decreased mobility begins to take shape. If restoration of that range of motion does not take place within an appropriate time frame, the joint will begin to experience irreversible degeneration.

Doctors and researchers spent decades constantly disagreeing on the amount of time it takes for an improperly moving joint to experience the effects of irreversible damage. The argument settled in the mid-1980’s when a study showed irreversible damage occurring after just two weeks of joint immobilization as witnessed through x-ray findings. Though many more studies of its kind have been done, the 1987 research remains relevant today. The evidence created groundwork supporting the need for on-going maintenance and chiropractic wellness care. Irreversible degeneration of joints limits quality of life as an individual ages. Maintenance care remains essential to lower the risk of unnecessary degeneration due to spinal stiffness. Regular chiropractic checkups and adjustments help provide mobility and stability to the spine to prevent degeneration from occurring. Increased quality of life through greater mobility serves as one of the many benefits of regular and consistent chiropractic adjustments with or without the presence of pain.
