The joints are parts of the body where two or more bones meet to allow skeletal movement. These are located in the elbows, shoulders, hips, and knees. Sometimes, the joints can suffer an injury or illness that causes joint pain. While most people will rely on medication to bring relief to their pain, it will not solve their problem. Here at Campion Chiropractic Clinic in College Station, TX, we can find the source of your pain and reduce or eliminate it with drug-free methods.
Joint pain can be caused by overuse /overexertion injuries, sports injuries, bad posture, poor sleeping habits, arthritis, and inflammation of one or more joints. This condition slowly deteriorates the protective layer (cartilage) that cushions the joints, ultimately, leading to the exposure of the bone and causing friction between two bones. This is enough to result in severe pain and restricted movement.
Other causes of joint pain include:
Rheumatoid Arthritis conditions
Overexertion of strenuous activities
Overuse of the joint
Bursitis of the joints
Whether it is from arthritis or another condition, people with joint pain can also experience the following signs and symptoms:
Red, swollen, or tenderness of the joints
Restricted range of motion
During your appointment with Dr. Sehorn , they will take a complete history of your health, do a physical & neurological examination, and take imagining tests of the area where you feel pain. Then, our chiropractic team of doctors will determine the right joint pain treatment that will not only help you reduce or eliminate your pain, but prevent the episodes from recurring.
A method that works well at treating joint pain is chiropractic adjustments. These adjustments decrease restrictions within the joints, reduce inflammation, and restore joint function. A few other techniques that may help with your joint pain and improve movement are corrective exercise, ultrasound, electric stimulation, Graston therapy and cold laser therapy.
