Joint Pain

Any injury that affects the ligaments, cartilage or bones can contribute to joint pain. Joint pain can affect any part of the body from your neck to your feet. Joint pain is common amongst seniors, but anyone can be affected by it. It can occur all of a sudden, and can be sharp and painful. On the other hand, it can last longer and can be dull and achy in nature.

What Causes Joint Pain?

Joint-PainOne of the causes of joint pain is bursitis (inflammation of the bursae). The bursae are fluid-filled sacs that cushion and pad bony prominences, allowing muscles and tendons to move freely over the bone.

Arthritis, traumatic injuries, sprains and strains can contribute to joint pain. At times, joint pain may be associated with tingling, numbness, or weakness. Symptoms like these should be reported to a physician as quickly as possible. Joint pain can trigger muscle compensations across your body, which is the body’s way of helping you cope with the joint pain.

Chiropractic rehabilitative therapy and joint pain treatment

Chiropractors correct the underlying cause of joint dysfunction so that the body can restore normal ranges of motion in the region that allows for the compensatory soft tissue reactions to heal. It is through this manner that chiropractors are best suited to deal with joint pain and dysfunction.

Your doctor of chiropractic will conduct a detailed evaluation to determine the cause of your joint pain and choose the correct method to treat the condition. Expect to be asked a series of questions to get to the root of the problem. These questions include:

What caused your pain?
Which joint hurts?
Is the pain on one side or both sides?
How long have you had this pain?
What is the nature or type of pain?
Have you injured yourself in any way?
