It can be tough to get up in the morning when your joints creak and ache and you feel 10 to 15 years older than your actual age. As a Garland chiropractor, I work to help people get natural joint pain relief.
What is joint pain?
Joint pain is pain caused by injury or disease which damages the joint. A person’s joints connect their bones and help to provide mobility and support for walking, running and other movements. Unfortunately joints are susceptible to damage from accidents or diseases which may affect the bone. When the joint is damaged it can cause inflammation leading to joint pain.
What causes joint pain?
The most common types of joint pain are caused by sprains, arthritis, and gout, and other injuries of the joint or bone. Jobs that involve repetitive movements can also be a factor as they may cause wear and tear on the joints. Even exercising improperly can injure a joint.
When the joint is injured, it tends to become inflamed. Joint pain can effect just about any part of the body, including ankles, wrists, elbows, knees and shoulders and can occur in people of all ages.
Joint pain ranges from minor pain to incredibly intense pain and can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks or even months or years.
What is the best joint pain treatment?
There are several different treatments aimed at relieving joint pain, and the best method for you will depend on the duration and sevearity of your joint pain.
The most common way of treating joint pain is to suppress symptoms through medication or even steroid injections. However these treatments generally only offer temporary relief.
As a Garland chiropractor, I believe there are much better methods. A chiropractor will treat the underlying cause of joint pain by correcting minor joint misalignments and helping to restore range of motion and increase mobility. This treatment alone can brings many people dramatic pain relief.
Advanced treatments options help to speed healing
Our chiropractic office also offers additional advanced treatments like laser therapy and therapeutic massage. Our 10 watt hot laser therapy helps improve blood circulation in the affected area and reduces inflammation. This FDA cleared treatment is completely safe and painless.
Massage therapy works as a complement to chiropractic treatment. Besides being a wonderful, relaxing experience, many patient notice improved range of motion almost immediately.
