Joint pain can be caused by many types of injuries or conditions. It may be linked to arthritis, bursitis, and muscle pain. No matter what causes it, painful joints can be very bothersome
How Chiropractors Treat Joint Pain
Joint pain affects all aspects of your life. It becomes a struggle to go to work, to play with your children, and even to cook dinner at the counter. When you want to participate in life, painful joints can take away those opportunities.
At Chiropractor of Columbus, we treat joint pain. Whether you are living with arthritis or the impact of an injury that occurred long ago, our pain remedies can help.
Massage Therapy For Joint Pain
Your joints, like other parts of your body, can benefit from a massage. Massage improves blood flow to the region, which can be a great help for those with injuries that need to heal. Plus, massage reduces inflammation.
A chiropractic adjustment may also be part of your treatment plan. Adjustments keep your body balanced and in line, ensuring that your body is not putting too much pressure or weight on one body part.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger point therapy involves finding specific trigger points on the body and putting pressure on them. Sometimes these trigger points cause joint pain, but a chiropractor can identify them.
Sometimes, the best way to treat joint pain is to remedy the issue with some new gear. Orthotics can help you sit and stand in a way that puts less pressure on your sensitive joints.
Lifestyle and Nutritional Counseling
Often, making changes to one’s lifestyle or diet can impact painful joints. For example, you may have found that knee pain seemed to accompany a major shift in your weight. In other cases, pain is caused by a new physical activity. Your chiropractor will take the cause of your pain into account before making recommendations.
