When people say "chiropractor," most think of treating neck and back pain from workplace injuries or a car accident, but chiropractic care involves much more than that and treats everything from carpal tunnel to headaches and more. Joint pain also responds well to chiropractic treatment.
When achy joints flare up, it is often easy and convenient to reach for over-the-counter medicine. While medications may help at first, many people find they need to take higher doses over time. While prescription medication can effectively mask your joint pain, it does nothing to address its root cause. At Spine One Center in New Jersey, our chiropractor will evaluate your musculoskeletal system to identify the root cause of your joint pain. Once the source of your back pain has been determined, we will create a chiropractic care plan to address it.
Common Treatments for Joint Pain
Chiropractic care for joint pain differs from chiropractic treatment for other musculoskeletal issues. If joint pain is due to osteoarthritis, traditional spinal manipulation is often not recommended. Some more effective methods offered by our chiropractor include:
Ultrasound -- This imaging technology isn't just about seeing the joints. Sound waves produced by the ultrasound can reduce swelling, alleviate pain, and reduce your overall stiffness. Regular ultrasound treatments will reduce your pain and restore your range of motion.
Electrotherapy - Stimulates soft tissues and nerves with gentle electric pulses to reduce pain and promote healing.
There are many reasons for joint pain to occur. Among the most common is arthritis. If a person is experiencing joint pain it is important to understand why before treatment begins. At Spine One Chiropractic Center, we are careful to use the diagnostic equipment available to make sure that the appropriate treatment is applied.
