Can Neck Bone Adjustments Relieve Spinal Arthritis?

People rarely think about the joints in the spinal column when they hear about arthritis. That’s because many assume that arthritis only affects the joints in the knees or hands. Unfortunately, statistics reveal that about 28 percent of women and 30 percent of men in the USA have spinal arthritis. It’s also a leading concern of patients who visit a Redwood City upper cervical chiropractor. So, how exactly does this disorder affect the body, and how can an upper cervical doctor like Dr. Tsiglieris help?


Spinal Arthritis: Its Possible Causes

Our Redwood City upper cervical chiropractor has met with several patients with spinal arthritis over the years. Most of these patients are seniors with pre-existing spinal disorders like slipped discs and osteoporosis. Additionally, these people either have ankylosing spondylitis or osteoarthritis. Here’s a closer look at the two:

Ankylosing spondylitis

People diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis have inflamed spinal joints. It can limit movement and cause the joints, ligaments, and muscles to stiffen. Additionally, it can lead to vertebral bone fusion – a condition that can reduce the spine’s flexibility and compromise your body posture. 


This type of spinal arthritis stems from the excessive wear and tear of the spinal joints. It can also develop due to repetitive strenuous activities like carrying heavy objects or using large pieces of machinery. 

Notably, some patients who seek a Redwood City upper cervical chiropractor for arthritis relief have rare forms of the disorder such as: 

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Enteropathic arthritis
  • Psoriatic arthritis
  • Reactive arthritis


Manage Spinal Arthritis Better with a Redwood City Upper Cervical Chiropractor

So, how does upper cervical care fit into the picture? How can neck adjustments relieve patients with mild to severe spinal arthritis? The answer lies in the key mechanisms of the technique: 

  • Improving CNS function
  • Resolving the effects of neck and head trauma
  • Reducing the stress caused by degenerative disc diseases

When combined, these three main benefits of upper cervical chiropractic can help the body cope better from the many types of spinal arthritis.
