Common Causes of Joint Pain
Joint pain is one of the most common types of pain affecting people of all ages. Joint pain can be caused by a variety of conditions caused by natural wear and tear to the body. This can occur in people of older age or people that work in physical labor or other physically demanding tasks.
One of the most common causes of joint pain is a condition known as osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is the wearing down of a joint, and it can cause excruciating pain around the knees, shoulders, hands, and elbows.
Rheumatoid arthritis is another common cause of joint pain that can be experienced by people of all ages. In addition, bursitis, which is an inflammation of the bursa sacs surrounding the joint, can also cause acute or chronic joint pain. Pre-existing conditions, such as previous injuries or dislocated bones can also lead to joint pain later on in life.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
Your chiropractor will determine the root cause of your joint pain by conducting physical exams and imaging tests to determine if your joint pain is caused by a pre-existing injury, osteoarthritis, or bursitis. Using this information, they will conduct the appropriate chiropractic care, which can include muscle massages around the joint.
Muscle massages and muscle exercises can help alleviate pain by reducing inflammation and tension, as well as stabilizing the joint. Manual adjustments of the extremities can also help stabilize a joint and provide long-lasting relief. Your chiropractor will determine if other specialized chiropractic treatments, such as laser therapy or more intense massage therapy, can also help alleviate your joint pain.
