Joint Pain

Joint pain

Joint pain can strike active persons as well as people in middle to older age. There can be a range of causes for joint pain, and fortunately, chiropractic care can help to bring both joint pain relief and deep healing.

Chiropractors are versed in a range of healing interventions for back, neck and spinal issues. We also have tools and techniques to assist with relief for many types of joint pain. Best of all, these interventions are safe, non-invasive and drug-free.

Common Causes of Joint Pain

Some of the most common causes of joint pain include:

Sports Injury - Sports injuries can emerge gradually over time due to strenuous activity or to an acute incident on the playing field. Chiropractic care can help with relieving pain, expediting healing and assisting athletes in coming back stronger than ever before.

Overuse Injury - Repetitive use of a joint at work or in any other context is another top cause of joint pain and discomfort. There can also be form and tracking issues that exacerbate the issue. Chiropractic care can assist with correcting imbalances and misalignment.

Arthritis - Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. Arthritis causes inflammation and discomfort in an ongoing way that can seriously reduce quality of life. Chiropractic care can correct imbalances that may be exacerbating this condition.

Tendinitis - Tendinitis is a specific type of overuse injury that compromises the integrity of the joint. The tendons become irritated and injured, leading to inflammation and joint pain. Some examples of tendinitis include:

  • Tennis Elbow
  • Golfer’s Elbow
  • Pitcher’s Arm (Rotator Cuff Injury)
  • Runner’s Knee

Any joint can be prone to tendinitis, and it is caused by both overuse and poor form. This can lead to imbalances that injure one or more joint tendons in the area over time.

Chiropractic care isn’t just for the issue of the spine. Chiropractic interventions can also bring relief to joint pain and facilitate healing at its source.

This will likely include a combination of chiropractic adjustments and instrument-assisted manipulation for pain relief, and to restore your joints to proper health. We may also utilize soft tissue treatments like therapeutic massage, electrical stimulation, and ultrasound to reduce tension and inflammation in the tissues around the affected area. Laser therapy may also be recommended to reduce inflammation, promote healing, and speed up recovery.
