Navigating Arthritis with Chiropractic Care in Singapore

Arthritis, a condition that refers to inflammation of the joints, is commonly experienced by residents of Singapore. Of the over one hundred forms of arthritis, osteoarthritis, often present in the weight-bearing bones of the back, neck, and spine, is the most prevalent.

Unpacking Osteoarthritis

Mechanical stress is a significant contributor to osteoarthritis in the back, neck, and spine. Being a load-bearing structure, the spine can exhibit inefficient weight distribution due to misalignments.

These misalignments contribute to excessive 'wear and tear,' causing the spinal bones to remodel in response to abnormal loading. This can lead to inflammation, thinning discs, bone spurs, and potential nerve entrapment. If arthritis progresses without intervention, it can result in spinal stenosis, a severe condition marked by a narrowing of the spinal canal.

Recognising the Symptoms of Spinal Arthritis

Spinal arthritis may manifest in a variety of symptoms:

  • Discomfort in the back, neck, shoulders, arms, and legs

  • Movement-induced pain that restricts mobility

  • Numbness and tingling sensations

  • Weakness

  • Possible bowel or bladder dysfunction

Chiropractic Care for Arthritis: Supporting Joint Health

Incorrect spine alignment, often due to poor posture, can contribute to osteoarthritis. By improving the alignment and movement of the spine, we aim to support better joint health and assist in managing pain and inflammation.

Misalignments are a significant contributor to arthritis. While medication may provide temporary symptom relief, it's crucial to address the root cause to prevent the condition from worsening.

“I was horrified when I was shown the arthritis in my neck. No wonder I had so much pain and stiffness. My GP had previously given me anti-inflammatories which eased the pain for a while, but after 6 months or so, it became even worse, and I became scared of taking all those drugs.


A friend told me to try Total Health Chiropractic, and I have to say.... it was the best thing I have done.  After a few short weeks, my pain is almost completely gone, and I regain near-perfect movement. Another thing that I didn't realize was related is that my headaches have completely vanished. When it was all explained to me, it made complete sense, and I now understand the importance of being in alignment. It's obvious, really... can't believe I never thought of it before. ”
