Joint pain can interfere with your ability to live your life normally, especially if it limits your mobility. It can even disrupt your sleep. However, you can find relief if you visit our professional team at Beyond Medical in Altamonte Springs, FL. Here are a few common questions about joint pain and how chiropractic care can help.
What Causes Joint Pain?
Everything from an autoimmune deficiency to wear and tear can lead to joint pain. You could also sustain an injury from trauma to a joint. Other possible causes of joint pain include sprains, strains, fractures, or dislocation.
How Is Joint Pain Diagnosed?
This issue is diagnosed similarly to other musculoskeletal problems. For instance, our chiropractor will assess your medical history and want to know about any condition, surgeries, or injuries you experienced to that particular body part or any possible conditions potentially causing your pain.
Our practitioner will ask you to move that joint to assess your range of motion. Then, we will manually press on and around the joint to evaluate the area for swelling.
When Should You See a Chiropractor for Joint Pain?
Anytime you feel like you could benefit from pain relief or an increase in flexibility or your sports performance, you should see a chiropractor. We recommend you visit our office if you recently had an injury to a joint, want to prevent an injury, or if you have recurring joint pain that's disrupting your life or sleep. If you notice you have limited mobility or wake up stiff, you should visit us for professional care.
What Can a Chiropractor Do for Joint Pain?
Our chiropractor may recommend exercise therapy to reduce or alleviate your joint pain. Our practitioner will guide you through exercises that increase flexibility and function in the joint.
If you have a dislocation, our chiropractor can manually move the joint back into the proper position to reduce stress on the surrounding soft tissue and nerves. If it's in your back, our practitioner will move all the vertebrae back in place.
Our practitioner may also recommend at-home remedies to ease your pain.
