How Chiropractic Care Can Help Your Joint Pain

Your joints are vital for your ability to move freely and comfortably. Sadly, many people suffer from joint pain that makes even the simplest tasks almost impossible to manage. Fortunately, chiropractic care is an effective way to treat and manage joint pain and improve your range of motion so you can move more freely. The team at Druzbik Family Chiropractic in Statesville, NC, is here to tell you more about joint pain and how our chiropractic care can provide long-lasting pain relief.


What Causes Joint Pain?

Most people think of the knees when they think of joint pain. While the knees are a common area to experience joint pain, you can also suffer joint pain in the hips, neck, fingers, shoulders, ankles, wrists, and elbows. Some people have pain in one area, while others feel pain in multiple joints. Several factors can both cause and contribute to joint pain, such as:

  • Auto accident injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Overuse injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Being overweight, especially with knee pain
  • Compressed nerves
  • Improper diet
  • Bursitis
  • Poor posture
  • Poor sleep position
  • Ligament and tendon injuries

Chiropractic Joint Pain Treatment

Chiropractic care offers a natural and effective way of reducing or eliminating joint pain. Your chiropractor will begin your consultation by determining the root cause of your pain and all factors that might contribute to it. Your chiropractor can devise a customized treatment plan to reduce your pain and improve your range of motion once they determine the underlying cause of your joint pain. For example, joint pain from an auto accident will likely require a different combination of techniques than joint pain from arthritis. However, some of the most common techniques for joint pain include the following:

  • Adjustments: Adjustments are not exclusive to the back and neck. Your chiropractor can also use adjustments on the extremities to restore alignment throughout the body and take pressure off your nerves, muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
  • Therapeutic exercises: Specific and targeted stretching and strengthening movements can be vital in joint pain treatment. These exercises help restore your range of motion, improve the blood flow to the joints, and reduce inflammation.
  • Nutritional guidance: Your chiropractor can recommend the best vitamins, nutrients, and minerals for joint health. These can help your body’s natural healing ability and boost your immune system function to prevent future joint pain.
  • Soft tissue techniques: Tension and strain on the tendons, ligaments, and surrounding muscles can contribute to joint pain. Soft tissue therapy can help relieve these issues, improve blood circulation, and increase range of motion.
