Get Moving with Arthritis
by Dr. Michael Jones
January 12, 2012
Arthritis is one of the most common chronic health conditions and is the leading cause of disability in the U.S. for individuals over the age of 15.
Arthritis can make even the most mundane things difficult, including walking, bathing or even getting dressed. In 1985, some 35 million Americans were found to have some form of arthritis or chronic joint symptom.

It was probably a migraine, her doctor told her, giving her a prescription for a drug called Zomig and ordering an M.R.I. of her brain. Neither the medicine nor the scans were helpful. The headache lasted two more days. After that, the occasional migraine would come and go; the whooshing noise remained constant.

Some 6 million people suffer from fibromyalgia, and a recent study reports that pain - more than depression, anxiety or sleeplessness -- is the primary factor behind cognitive dysfunction in patients suffering with this disorder.
According to Dr. Josh Wagner - the only Manhattan chiropractor specializing in Torque Release Technique, a drug-free, safe and natural treatment for fibromyalgia and other chronic pain disorders - the key to eliminating fibromyalgia lies in de-stressing and detoxifying the central nervous system, not in merely managing the often debilitating disorder with pain medication.
