What Causes Joint Pain?
Joint pain can be a result of injuries or inflammatory disorders. Conditions such as arthritis will cause joints to stay in a state of inflammation for long periods. If left untreated, this type of inflammation can cause long-term damage to the joints.
When a joint has been injured, it will inflame as a means of protecting itself so that healing can take place. However, if this inflammation response does not relax over time, you will experience ongoing pain issues.
Can a Chiropractor Help with Joint Pain Treatment?
One of the most difficult aspects of joint pain is finding pain solutions that do not have a negative effect on your overall health. Traditional medical doctors will often treat joint pain with pain medication. Although this offers temporary relief, it does nothing to resolve the current health problem that is taking place, which is inflammation. To find lasting pain relief, the inflammation in the joints must be addressed.
A chiropractor will be able to assess your pain levels, pinpoint what is causing your pain, and then develop a treatment plan that can reduce inflammation. The methods used will seem very different to you than those of a traditional doctor.
What Types of Treatment Will Be Used?
Chiropractic care seeks to help patients get their bodies back into balance and optimum health. This often involves dealing with the entire body, not just the part that hurts. Your chiropractor will recommend treatments that align the spine, relax the muscles and improve lifestyle habits that may be contributing to your pain issues, such as poor diet and lack of exercise.
Some treatments may include spinal adjustment, massage therapy, shockwave therapy, hot/cold therapy, stretching, and exercises.
