Arthritis and Aging
As we age, there may be multiple strains that are superimposed one on the other over decades. Degenerative changes may occur in the spine and peripheral joints resulting in distortions of the three myofascial and bony tissues so that the function of nerves and blood vessels may be affected.
One of the most common things is experienced as we age is the shortening and thickening of connective tissues and the consequent stiffening and reduction of range of motion in joints.
Osteopathic treatment improves the circulation around joints and can result in improved mobility with less pain.
