Can a Chiropractor Help With Joint Pain?
Many people know that chiropractors help with stiff neck or lower back pain, but the benefit of chiropractic care doesn’t just stop there. Seeing a chiropractor for joint pain can provide relief from a variety of unpleasant symptoms. Chiropractors are able to manipulate sore or painful joints as well as the spine to improve pinched nerves throughout the body. The doctors at Balance Family are able to adjust a range of body areas to relieve tension and promote efficient mobility.
At our office, some of the most commonly requested chiropractic adjustments are the back and neck, wrists, ankles, knees, elbows, and shoulders. An adjustment to relieve joint pain generally doesn’t hurt and many patients find instant relief. Joint pain and joint inflammation can seriously limit your mobility and daily function, an adjustment in any of these areas may provide a pain reduction and improvement in your mobility.
Chiropractic care is a non-invasive and non-addictive alternative to traditional pain management. About 27 million Americans are treated by a doctor of chiropractic each year to treat a variety of issues — including joint pain — as well as routine maintenance. Chiropractic care is often used for joint and lower back pain treatment and is a combination of spinal manipulation as well as a holistic, whole-body approach to wellness and nutrition. Spinal manipulation uses the doctor’s hands or a small device to increase joint mobility in a targeted area, which in turn reduces muscle tightness, relieves swelling, or decreases nerve irritation.
Adding chiropractic care to your wellness routine can help:
- Reduce pain and discomfort
- Decrease inflammation
- Improve range of motion
- Improve flexibility
- Increase muscle tone and strength
Chiropractic care is gentle. In our office, we treat newborns and seniors, and everyone in between. There are more than 150 techniques that chiropractors are experts in when adjusting the body, all vary in degrees of force. A high school athlete with back pain may benefit from a high velocity spinal adjustment, and you may benefit from a more gentle tissue manipulation. Your doctor is able to adjust every part of your care specific to your needs.
To see if chiropractic care is right for your condition, the doctors at Balance Family Chiropractic will perform a consultation and examination to fully evaluate your body’s needs and abilities.
