Many people live every day with chronic joint pain. This can be a result of an injury or from an illness. Understanding what is causing the joint pain, and the symptoms of joint pain can go a long way in joint pain treatment. Below, let’s look more in-depth at joint pain and understand why chiropractic care is an excellent treatment option. Our staff at True Potential Chiropractic wants you to know how we treat joint pain with high-quality chiropractic care.
Causes of Joint Pain
There are hundreds of conditions and injuries that can cause joint pain ranging from a simple sprain to bone cancer. Joint pain is caused by a handful of conditions but is most commonly caused by arthritis. This is a disease that typically sets in with age and can impact any joint within the body. Another common cause of joint pain is an injury. This can be a strain or a sprain, or a pulled tendon or ligament. Joint pain can also be caused by certain diseases such as gout, influenza, or hepatitis.
Joint Pain Symptoms
The biggest symptom of joint pain is soreness within the joint. The pain typically becomes more intense with certain movements or use. The joint can be stiff and the range of motion limited. Depending on the injury or condition, joint pain may also be accompanied by swelling and inflammation. If the joint also appears red or if there is a sudden warmth and tenderness around the joint, it may be time to visit a doctor.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
People regularly seek out a chiropractor for joint pain treatment. Often, joints are painful because undue stress is added to the joint. This stress can be from an imbalance in the body, which a chiropractor works to correct. Using a combination of techniques, a chiropractor is able to relieve excess stress so that the joint may heal properly and move freely. A chiropractor may prescribe a combination of manual manipulation, strengthening, and stretching exercises, or massage therapy to help you on the road to recovery.
