Joint pain has many causes, including arthritis-related diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. If you’re suffering from joint pain, see a chiropractic doctor who can diagnose it, identify the underlying problem, and recommend ways of treating it.
If the pain is due to conditions such as arthritis or an injury, a chiropractor on our chiropractic care team may recommend visiting a chiropractor for rehabilitation. At Clark Chiropractic Clinic, P.C., we offer chiropractic services to patients with joint pains in Odessa, TX, and Midland, TX. You can call us and schedule an appointment with one of our chiropractors, but first, it may be useful to understand what joint pain is all about.
What Is Joint Pain?
Joint pain can be the discomfort felt at the points where bones come into contact with each other. It can be in the knees, hands, spine, hips, or feet joints. The pain can be sharp, sudden, dull, and sometimes accompanied by stiffness, inflammation, or burning.
Joint pain affects the joint’s function and limits an individual’s ability to perform basic tasks. Severe joint pain affects one’s quality of life.
Symptoms of Joint Pain
The symptoms vary by person and the underlying condition. They might include:
- Weakness at the joint
- Reduced movement
Causes of Joint Pain
Various conditions can cause joint pain. Often, it results from an injury, and the pain can develop in multiple joints. An injury may result from the excess impact that leads to a strain or fracture, or excessive use of a particular joint. Other causes of joint pain include:
- Rheumatoid arthritis: This condition leads to joint pain and swelling, sometimes leading to deformity of some joints.
- Osteoarthritis: This is another form of arthritis that progresses over time when the cartilage between the bones wears out. The joints develop stiffness and pain.
- Overuse: Overtime, repeated use of the same joints, especially in an improper fashion, can cause joint pain.
Chiropractic Care for Joint Pain
Chiropractic care can help restore a joint’s mobility and eases pain. The premise is to adjust the joints to position while improving the nervous system without prescription medication.
