Causes of Joint Pain
Arthritis is the most common cause of joint pain. Both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis cause joint pain. Rheumatoid arthritis or RA typically causes pain, fluid buildup, and inflammation of the joints. Osteoarthritis, commonly associated with the aging process, causes pain and stiff joints in the hands, knees, and hips. It may also cause swelling and limit your range of motion.
Joint pain can stem from the following causes:
- Adult Still's disease
- Vascular necrosis (bone tissue death)
- Bone cancer
- Broken bone or dislocation
- Bursitis (joint inflammation)
- Complex regional pain syndrome (nervous disorder)
- Gonococcal arthritis
Chiropractic Joint Pain Treatment
Chiropractic joint pain treatment relieves the pain and discomfort associated with arthritis. If you have tried other remedies with no luck, we recommend making an appointment to see if you could benefit from a chiropractic adjustment. Doctor Armstrong can help you increase your range of motion if it has been limited due to joint deterioration.
Having a greater range of motion reduces joint stiffness and improves your ability to complete everyday tasks. After your initial examination, you may receive additional instructions or treatment options customized for your situation. When your joints are out of alignment, the area tends to swell. Chiropractic joint pain treatment improves joint swelling and manipulation can align your elbows, hips, or knees to prevent or alleviate future issues.
Chiropractic treatment helps your body begin the healing process by stimulating the production of endorphins, nature’s painkillers. The chiropractor may also suggest changes to your lifestyle, such as increased exercising and a healthier diet. Weight contributes to the severity of joint pain. So, if you have a few extra pounds, it may be time to try to lose them.
