Joint Pain and a Chiropractic Adjustment from Our Chiropractor
Pain management has been a frequent need for patients visiting chiropractors. Where traditional medicine might use invasive surgeries or potentially harmful drugs to try to give you pain relief, chiropractic care offers long-term recovery, pain management, and personal wellness improvement. Chiropractors have developed their craft to meet your personal needs so that you do not have to rely on treatments with burdensome side effects or do not get you relief that lasts. We at Health First Chiropractic Marysville in Marysville, WA, are here to help.
The Body Ages and the Joints Feel It
While young, many people are able to perform amazing physical feats and activities. However, as the body moves into middle-age and later years, a combination of wear and tear, age, previous injuries and start to catch up. The combination can be felt in worn cartilage in joints, loss of bone density and arthritis. All these factors as well as others such as weight gain can contribute to joint pain, which can get worse over time. A person hurts, doesn’t want to move much, stays immobile, and then hurts even more as he gains weight and the joint weakens further. This damaging, downward cycle might be addressed with temporary painkiller pharmaceuticals versus focusing on the real cause of the joint pain and getting the body working again.
Arthritis and Joint Inflammation
Arthritis can also develop as you age and can cause painful inflammation in the joints, causing a patient to lose mobility, flexibility and eventually activity altogether. Chiropractic care can help reduce inflammation and get you moving again.
Identifying the Joint Pain Cause
Our chiropractor can use a limited physical examination and ask you a number of questions to help determine what is causing your joint pain. Once our chiropractor has found the cause, he will then focus on how to maintain and improve range and motion again, help you with endurance and strength re-building, and might focus on dietary improvement as well to increase needed resources for healing.
Chiropractic treatments can corrective exercises, chiropractic adjustments, lifestyle advice, and more. The goal is to reduce the pain and swelling, increase circulation, and help the body heal itself better. Along with myofascial release, guided exercise, adjustment and weight management, we help with joint pain beyond just the drug approach.
