Managing Joint Pain with Chiropractic Care
A chiropractor is the single professional that is most qualified to assess, treat, and manage joint pain. This is because chiropractors are professionals who specialize only in the treatment of conditions of the spine, nervous system, and musculoskeletal injuries.
To come up with a plan for joint pain treatment, your chiropractor will discuss the onset of pain, its location and nature, and any factors that aggravate it or have provided some measure of relief. They will conduct a physical examination and review any diagnostic images or other tools available such as past X-rays or medical files.
You chiropractor will treat your joint pain primarily by providing manual manipulation of the spine to correct any deformities. They may also assist with or recommend physical therapy exercises to improve mobility and range of motion. Often, they will provide referrals to other specialists or services such as massage therapy as well.
We will create a tailored treatment plan to provide you with the best treatments possible for any health concerns or pain you may have.
