Many chiropractic patients suffer from joint pain. Chiropractic treatment can be very effective in providing joint pain relief and many different treatment options exist for those who suffer from such pain. At Market Place Chiropractic, we have training in treating pain, and are here to serve our patients in the Lake Stevens, WA, region.
Causes of Joint Pain
Joints are very complex structures, consisting of bone, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. They are susceptible to damage from any serious trauma, and also prone to deteriorate with age. With damage or deterioration comes joint pain.
Joint pain can be either acute or chronic. Acute pain occurs in the body quickly, with little or no time for the onset of symptoms. Acute pain might be caused by trauma or injury, leading to pain in the aftermath of the incident. Chronic joint pain develops slowly, over time measured in weeks or months. For example, rheumatoid arthritis might cause chronic joint pain.
Sometimes, medicine or surgery is prescribed for treating joint pain. These treatments aren't always effective, and can sometimes lead to further complications. Chiropractic adjustment and other chiropractic treatments can be effective in treating joint pain, whether acute or chronic. Such treatments are natural and holistic, and can help avoid the need for powerful drugs or invasive surgery.
How Does Our Chiropractor Treat Joint Pain?
Joint pain can frequently be eased by chiropractic adjustment of the spine. The spine is designed to carry the weight of the human body, and is finely balanced to do so. If the spine becomes misaligned, due to stress, trauma, or other causes, it may begin to suffer from pain, or the joints of the arms and legs may become misaligned as well. The result is often chronic pain. Patients may find relief after a series of spinal adjustments to realign the body.
Other therapies available to the chiropractor to relieve joint pain include massage therapy, trigger point therapy, or cold laser treatments. We can also help advise our patients about lifestyle adjustments that can reduce the pain arising due to inflammation, or arthritis. Improved diet and exercise can not only make a patient feel better generally, but can also help reduce specific issues of pain.
