The body, in its intelligence, adds calcium (bone) to an area that is under prolonged stress. It’s similar to calluses on your hands. It is a long-standing problem that is a sign of trauma, abuse or repetitive actions. It doesn’t come slowly nor will it go away slowly. But as I tell patients if the body deposited all that calcium in a response to prolonged stress the body can just as easily remove it if the stress is relieved. Just like with so may other things in life, it is best to catch and arrest it early. The primary focus of the chiropractor is restoration of the motion of the spine. Where there is arthritis, there hasn’t been much motion.
