What Causes Joint Pain?
Joint pain has a wide range of causes, which can include something as simple as twisting your shoulder or knee a certain way, to more serious causes like personal injuries, auto accident injuries, and sports injuries.
Joint pain is characterized by pain felt at the hinge of two bones, known as the joints, such as knee pain, shoulder pain, and hip pain. It can be difficult to know what the exact cause of joint pain is, but one of the most common causes is wear and tear of the cartilage that provides cushioning between the joints. This is known as osteoarthritis, and it can affect anyone at any age.
Previous injuries that have gone untreated can also pose a threat to your joints, leading to severe joint pain.
How Does a Chiropractor Treat Joint Pain?
Our chiropractor, Dr. Craig Senft, can treat joint pain by first conducting a limited physical exam to determine if you're suffering from any underlying injuries that could be contributing to your pain. Our chiropractor can also order tests like imaging tests including x-rays and use this information to help formulate a treatment plan that works for you.
Chiropractic treatment for joint pain can include certain types of streches of lifestyle advice. Other treatments can include manual adjustments or a spinal adjustment, which can alleviate pain around the spine, realigns the spine, and can help restore balance to the body. A spinal adjustment is one of the primary ways our chiropractor provides chiropractic care.
Muscle exercises can also help strengthen the muscles around the joint, so that can better support the body against future personal injuries and auto accident injuries.
