Causes of Joint Pain

There are several causes of joint pain. The most common ones we see at our clinics include:● Sprains and strains: Most people suffer from joint pain after twisting their joints. Also, falls, slips, and auto accidents can cause the ligaments and tendons of your joints to stretch, causing pain and swelling.● Osteoarthritis: The deterioration of the cartilage cushioning the joints causes bones to rub against each other, causing pain and stiffness.● Tendonitis: Injury and joint overuse may inflame the tendons of your joints, causing pain, swelling, and stiffness.● Bursitis: The inflammation of the fluid-filled sac protecting the knee (bursae) causes pain and tenderness.● Poor posture: Unnatural posture when lifting weights, sleeping, and sitting may put undue pressure on the joints, causing pain and limited mobility.

If you are experiencing joint pain, seek chiropractic treatment to restore your mobility and reduce pain. We will treat the root cause of your pain and provide information on how to avoid injuries in the future.

How Our Chiropractors Can Help

We will start with a comprehensive evaluation of your current symptoms and overall health to determine the root cause of your joint pain. Our chiropractors may ask you to move your joint in different directions to understand the exact location and severity of the pain. If necessary, we may request x-rays and MRIs to pinpoint the injury with accuracy.

Once we diagnose the cause of your joint pain, our chiropractors will create a treatment plan utilizing various non-invasive techniques. Common treatment options we offer for joint pain include:
