Joint Pain Q&A

What causes joint pain?

Joint pain typically begins when an injury or disease damages the structures inside the joint. But you can also have joint pain when the muscles and ligaments outside the joint weaken, tear, or become inflamed.

While every joint in your body is vulnerable to pain because of its extensive and repetitive movement, your shoulders and weight-bearing joints (ankles, knees, hips, and lower spine) are usually the first to develop painful problems.

A few common causes of joint pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Misaligned vertebrae
  • Ligament injuries
  • Meniscus injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Fractures
  • Dislocations

Though an injury causes sudden joint pain, many conditions cause pain that increases gradually as the underlying problem causes progressive joint damage.

What symptoms accompany joint pain?

Painful joints often have other symptoms, such as:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Joint instability
  • Joint stiffness
  • Limited movement or loss of movement
  • Clicking or snapping sounds when using the joint

The problems responsible for pain in the spinal facet joints (the joints connecting vertebrae) may also pinch the nerves, causing pain and tingling in your arms and legs.

How is joint pain treated?

The heart of chiropractic care is diagnosing the root cause of your joint pain. Then, your provider can carefully customize your treatment to heal the problem.

Your Repair Recover Restore chiropractor diagnoses the problem by learning about your symptoms, lifestyle, and medical history. They also complete a physical exam, checking for inflammation, deformities, misalignments, and other possible problems. They may then order X-rays to evaluate tissues inside the joint.

While chiropractors are known for their expertise in treating spinal joints, they have extensive training in techniques for all the joints in your body. 

A few examples of the therapies your provider may recommend include:

  • Joint mobilization
  • Spinal manipulation
  • Extremity manipulation
  • Activator Method
  • Muscle energy technique
  • Massage therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Kinesiology taping

Your provider bases your treatment on your diagnosis, pain severity, and whether the joints are inflamed. Your Repair Recover Restore chiropractor may use passive techniques and therapies to reduce inflammation and promote healing before active treatments like manipulation.

The personalized care provided by the Repair Recover Restore team alleviates joint pain, improves the joint’s range of motion, and puts you on the path to healing and recovery. Call the nearest office or book an appointment online today to get help for joint pain.
