Will Chiropractic Care Ease Your Joint Pain?

Joint pain is a common complaint for many Americans. Arthritis, sprains, tendinitis, bursitis, Lyme diseases, and other conditions and diseases can cause achy joints and make moving uncomfortable. Chiropractic treatment offers an effective way to soothe your sore joints and improve your mobility.

Why You Should Consider Chiropractic Treatment if You Have Joint Pain

Heat, ice, and over-the-counter pain medications can be helpful if you have mild or occasional joint pain but may be less effective for moderate to severe pain. Prescription medications offer another option but come with side effects that may not make them the best option. When your medication wears off, pain often returns. Even worse, some prescription painkillers can be very addicting.

Chiropractic offers a natural, drug-free way to not only treat your symptoms but also address the cause of your pain. Treating the source of your condition can eliminate or reduce pain and may even prevent it from occurring in the future.

You'll Have Less Pain and Stiffness, Thanks to Chiropractic Care

When the nerves around your joints are irritated, you're bound to experience aches and pains. Irritation may happen if your vertebrae, the bony bones that make up your spine, become misaligned and press on your nerves. Pain may also occur if the muscles, tendons, bones, or bulging spinal discs press against and irritate the nerves.

Correcting misaligned vertebrae with spinal manipulation eases joint pain and also reduces pressure on nerves. Your chiropractor uses quick thrusts to move the vertebrae back into alignment. Once your spine is properly aligned, tight muscles and tendons will loosen and no longer compress the nerves.

Manipulation and other chiropractic treatments reduce pain and stiffness while improving your range of motion. After a visit to the chiropractor, you'll probably find that it's a little easier to move your joints.

    Treatments Improve Blood Flow

    Your blood supplies oxygen, energy, and nutrients to your body's organs, tissues, and cells. Unfortunately, blood flow may be restricted if you have an injury or chronic condition that causes joint pain. Spinal manipulation, massage, and other treatments improve blood flow, which helps speed healing.

    Chiropractic Care Can Help You Manage Arthritis Symptoms

    Whether you have osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, or another form of a joint condition, you may find chiropractic treatment beneficial. In addition to reducing pain and stiffness, chiropractic care may also ease muscle spasms and reduce tenderness in the soft tissues around your joints.

    In a case study that appeared in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine, a 70-year-old woman with a history of hip osteoarthritis received 12 weeks of chiropractic care. At the end of the treatment period, she saw improvements in range of motion, gait speed, and balance.

    Your Treatment is Geared to Your Condition

    Chiropractic care isn't a one-size-fits-all approach to joint pain management. In fact, your treatment plan is designed to specifically address your symptoms and diagnosis.

    Chiropractic treatments that can be helpful for joint pain include:

    • Manipulation of your spine or other joints
    • Soft tissue mobilization or massage to loosen tight muscles and tissues while also breaking apart scar tissue
    • Ultrasound therapy to decrease pain, stiffness, and swelling
    • Electrical nerve stimulation to prevent pain signals from reaching your brain
    • Traction to decompress your spine, improve range of motion, and reduce pressure on your nerves
    • Exercises that help you strengthen the muscles that support your joints and improve flexibility

    Chiropractic care can make your life much more pleasant if you suffer from joint pain. Contact our office if you'd like to schedule an appointment with the chiropractor.

    Testimonials

    Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    • "Life would not be the same without Dr. Jayne! In addition to being the loveliest and most caring person, she's an extraordinary chiropractor. She truly has healing hands, an incredible knowledge of the body (MY body!), an uncanny gift for knowing exactly what the issue is right away, and then correcting it effectively. I always know I can rely on her to correct my neck and back issues when they arise, sometimes just after one visit. And Dr. Lou and Jayne's staff are wonderful - kind and patient, and always extremely helpful. I wouldn't go anywhere else."

    • "Dr Jayne and Dr Lou are both amazing! They offer not just great care, but a warm, welcoming atmosphere— truly family friendly! They go above and beyond and truly care about the whole patient, well beyond chiropractic care. Dr Jayne has offered amazing support and solace through my journey as a new mom and I will always be grateful!"

    • "Absolutely amazing ! First, the staff was very friendly. I am 8 months pregnant and I've had a lot of back/shoulder pain, and the doctor Jayne was very friendly and professional. You can tell she know what she's doing. She did an amazing job, when I got up from the chair I felt like I was 10 years old again ! My pain was completely gone. I am so happy I have found that place !"

    • "I've seen a whole bunch of chiropractors and Lou and Jayne are the best, by far. They're also two of the sweetest people I know."

    • "I have no words to express my gratitude for Dr. Jayne. I was looking for a Webster Technique chiropractor during my pregnancy and I am so happy I found her. Thanks to her treatments we were able to turn the baby in optimal position and avoid any kind of medical interventions during delivery. But most of all, I valued her precious advice and physical and emotional support during before and after my baby was born. The most beautiful moment of all was giving my son his very first adjustment when he was only couple of days old. I definitely recommend her and her team!"

    • "Drs. Lou and Jayne are the best. Wonderful with even the very youngest children and babies, all the way to folks in later life. Friendly, personable, and strong at what they do -- each with his or her own style. Great to have appointments with both of them! They also have things like a water massage table, which is a wonderfully relaxing mini-escape, and laser treatments for things like carpal tunnel. They are also a gay-friendly business, which encourages me to refer more folks to them."
