Joint Pain Treatment at Arbor Crossing Chiropractic Life Center
Acute injuries and chronic conditions affecting the joints can make even the slightest movement painful. Even so, you don't have to let joint pain overwhelm your way of life, nor are you limited to medications that provide only partial relief. Here at Arbor Crossing Chiropractic Life Center in Livonia, we can administer joint pain treatments that can help your joints work better, restoring your lost mobility.
Understanding Your Joint Pain Issues
Some joint pain may strike you all of a sudden, especially if it's connected to an acute injury that has knocked joint components out of position. A sports injury or auto accident injury, for example, can dislocate joints while also tearing the muscles and tendons that make those joints move. Even after some aspects of your acute injury have healed, you may still suffer pain from joints that lost their alignment.
Chronic pain may develop with less fanfare than acute joint pain, but it can cause even longer-lasting misery. Some chronic joint pain stems from incurable issues, such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, meaning that the pain can be managed or reduced, but not permanently eliminated. In addition to chronic knee, ankle, hip, or shoulder or elbow pain, you can also experience chronic pain in your vertebral joints. Bulging discs and other spinal changes often contribute to this kind of pain. Even a longstanding postural or ergonomic problem can place some of your joints under unnatural stresses and strains.
Chiropractic Adjustment and Other Drug-free Treatment Strategies
Joint pain can be hard to treat through over-the-counter drugs, which only reduce surface symptoms temporarily. Fixing a joint in place through surgery may eliminate pain, but it also eliminates useful joint motion. Our chiropractor can provide you with treatments that correct alignment errors and increase your pain-free range of motion without either surgery or medication. After determining the exact nature of your ailment, we can construct a personalized pain management program that uses modalities such as:
- Chiropractic adjustments to correct joint alignment problems that inhibit motion
- Massage therapy to ease pain and inflammation in injured or inflamed joint tissues
- Stretches and exercises to help you stay flexible and strong
- Lifestyle changes to optimize your posture and ergonomics
