Arthritis is a common variable as we age. It is unavoidable and from the day we are born we slowly advance. With that said there are ways to sustain and avoid advancement. The body needs motion to function properly. Undetected joint dysfunction (see Joint Dysfunction) causes instability in relationship to the joint above and below. Allowing a joint to move in its “designed” motion gives the body a chance to advance its “aging” process in a more uniform/symmetrical stage rather than severe advancement at one or two levels.
