Your joints connect your bones and support movement throughout your body. Unfortunately, joint pain is a common issue that affects millions of people every day. There are many potential causes of joint pain. At Davis Family Chiropractic & Massage, we have been providing residents of Vancouver, WA with chiropractic care for joint pain treatment for many years. Read on to learn more about what might be causing your joint pain and how our chiropractor can help you manage it.
Common Causes of Joint Pain
There are many potential causes of joint pain. The most common causes of joint pain include:
- Overuse or repetitive movements
- Poor posture
- A sedentary/inactive lifestyle that involves sitting for long periods every day
- Trauma, impact, or injury
- An autoimmune disorder such as fibromyalgia
- Sleep deprivation can cause fatigue and joint stiffness
When you first visit our office, our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the root cause of your joint pain before creating a chiropractic care plan to address it.
Joint Pain Treatment
Joint pain treatment depends on the severity of your symptoms and what is causing your pain in the first place. Alongside natural remedies, our chiropractor Vancouver WA may also recommend lifestyle changes to prevent your pain from returning or becoming worse. Potential lifestyle changes include exercise, weight loss, or addressing any underlying health conditions. If your joint pain is temporary (acute), such as the result of an injury, your medical provider may recommend over-the-counter pain medications to help reduce the inflammation and pain. Some common natural remedies for joint pain include:
- Epsom salt soak
- Hot and cold therapy
- Increasing movement
- Diet modifications
- Supplements such as collagen
It is important to note that joint pain is an extremely common issue among adults. Other risk factors include overuse, obesity, excessive stress, or health conditions such as arthritis. Joint pain generally occurs in the knees, neck, lower back, hips, shoulders, hands, and ankles. Over time, chiropractic adjustments will ease your joint pain, restore your range of motion, and minimize the likelihood of your pain returning in the future.
