What Causes Joint Pain?
Joint pain has a wide range of causes, including wear and tear on the joints that can happen during older age. This is known as arthritis, and occurs due to a wearing down of the joint and the fluid surrounding the joint.
Joint pain can also be caused by a condition known as bursitis, inflammation of the bursa around the joint, which are the sacs that hold the fluid to lubricate the joints. Lastly, inflammation of the surrounding muscles can also contribute to joint pain. Previous injuries and dislocations can cause joint pain, too.
How Our Chiropractor Treats Joint Pain
Our chiropractor can help treat joint pain by first conducting a physical exam to determine the root cause of your joint pain. Because there are so many different causes, our chiropractor will determine which of the above reasons is causing your joint pain, and provide care to help ease your pain.
This chiropractic care can include things like massage therapy around the joint to help ease inflammation, exercises to help strengthen the muscles around the joint and improve the joint's stabilization, or adjustments to the extremities to help realign the joint and boost its natural functioning.
