Joint Pain and Arthritis Q & A

Plantation Health and Wellness

What are common causes of joint pain?

Joint pain occurs for a number of reasons including:

  • Strains
  • Overuse
  • Heavy lifting
  • Repetitive motions
  • Athletic activity

Arthritis is also a common cause of joint pain. It’s a degenerative disease caused by degrading of the cartilage and cushioning in the joint. This happens a result of gradual wear and tear through repetitive motions, age, or from injury.

When the cushioning becomes sparse through arthritis, it causes a lot of friction within the joint. This leads to inflammation and chronic pain. Arthritis is often found in hands, knees, or the spine. Rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune condition, is another cause of joint pain. It causes antibodies to attack the healthy lining of joints, which brings on inflammation.

How is joint pain treated?

Manual therapies from the provider can provide relief to joint pain. The process of joint and tissue manipulation is where he uses his hands to apply pressure to the affected areas.

It's been used to relieve pressure on joints, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function. In addition to the manipulation or adjustments, practitioners can use ice and heat therapy, electric stimulation, and ultrasound for deep tissue healing. At Plantation Health and Wellness, patients may also benefit from trigger point treatments and joint injections. Traditional pain relief medication is avoided as it doesn’t treat the underlying cause of the pain.

How does chiropractic care provide arthritis pain relief?

Chiropractic care incorporates drug-free, non-invasive techniques for treating the pain associated with arthritis. The provider also uses chiropractic care in combination with other treatments. To help patients achieve long-term health, he may recommend nutritional supplementations, diet, and exercise. These changes in lifestyle can improve the patient’s overall health and, subsequently, the arthritis. If you’re experiencing pain related to arthritis, contact Plantation Health and Wellness to discuss how chiropractic care can provide pain relief and help you achieve a higher level of overall health.
