Joint pain can have drastic effects on your quality of life. Whether you suffer from an acute joint problem or a chronic joint pain issue such as arthritis, you're probably searching for treatment that doesn’t rely on surgery or drugs to make your joints feel and function better. That's why you should talk to our Topeka, KS team at Counselman & Wade Chiropractic. We can provide you with safe, drug-free, non-invasive care that helps you enjoy everyday life again.
Common Causes of Joint Pain
Joint pain can be caused by numerous problems, from age-related conditions to injuries. The latter may occur in auto accidents, sports injuries, workplace incidents, or mishaps around the house, causing immediate and excruciating pain. However, not all joint pain has such obvious causes. Joint pain that sneaks up on you over the years may be due to osteoarthritis, a degenerative condition in which the bone ends in the joints lose their cushioning layer of cartilage. Other kinds of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis, may come and go in painful, disfiguring bouts.
Chronic joint pain can also stem from musculoskeletal alignment problems. Changes in your spinal discs, for instance, can place extra stress on your vertebral joints, triggering inflammation and neck or back pain. An unbalanced body may develop premature arthritis or connective tissue strain in weight-bearing joints. An old injury that never quite healed right may leave alignment problems behind which grow progressively worse (and more painful) over time.
How Chiropractic Care Improves Joint Function and Comfort
Chiropractic care offers an effective method for correcting positional problems and alignment errors that cause joint pain. Either chiropractor on our team can take X-rays of painful joints, evaluate your overall posture and alignment, and discuss your symptoms with you to determine whether chiropractic adjustment makes sense for your condition. If it does, our chiropractor can administer your first adjustment on the spot. These small, precise applications of force can bring joint components, discs, and other structures back into their normal positions, relieving joint pain, easing stress on tissues, and allowing your joints to move more freely. We can complement your chiropractic adjustments with other, equally safe treatments such as massage therapy, physiotherapy, nutritional counseling, and exercises to keep your joints limber.
