Can chiropractors reverse degenerative arthritis?

I am looking for something to reverse this arthritis of mine.

Only if it isn't true arthritis. Chiropractors can't get rid if bone spurs. They can howerver help you with the symptoms. Also, if you have something else that has the symptoms of arthritis, the chiropractor may very well be able to cure you. Depends on what it might be. It's worth a shot anyway.

I've seen claims that a combination of chiropratic treatment, glucosamine supplements and regular, rehabilitative exercise can alleviate the debilitating effects of arthritis but those claims came from chiropractic sources. Conventionally oriented sources of medical information spend a lot of time talking about education, exercise, weight loss, joint protection, Tylenol and ibuprofen.

Chiropractors can help treat the pain, but they can't reverse arthritis. Beware of any chiropractor who claims that they can.

Chiropractors can be effective in treating many conditions that relate to muscle and bone ailments. Manipulation of joints and deep tissue massage, helps increase blow flow to areas that are inflamed. Chiropractors are trained in the science of bone structure, this should help arthritis sufferers.

No. Since millions of people still suffer from degenerative arthritis. Try exercise, pain management and consult a physician regularly. There is no cure for arthritis, however, you can manage to live a healthy life, with exercise, consultation, sleeping well and minimizing further aggravating your condition. Arthritis is hard to live with but harder if you do nothing.

Chiropractic care can only help slow or reduce the advancement of it. If a chiropractor tells you he can reverse arthritis i would change to a different one.
