Joint Pain Q & A

Why do I have joint pain?

You have more than 200 joints in your body, most of which allow you to move freely and easily. You use your joints when performing almost any kind of physical activity, including walking, sitting, swinging a bat, and texting. Due to the amount of use they get, joints may become inflamed and painful because of: 

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Dislocation
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Sprains or strains
  • Lyme disease
  • Fracture
  • Torn cartilage
  • Sarcoidosis

Many other conditions can cause joint pain, too. If you have joint pain, Dr. Hennen conducts a thorough physical examination and may order low-radiation, on-site digital X-rays to take a closer look at your joint. 

What treatments alleviate joint pain?

At Spring Creek Chiropractic & Massage, your wellness team takes a total-body approach to health and directs their treatments to the source of your pain. By healing the underlying conditions that cause your pain — rather than just masking symptoms — you increase your well-being and prevent further joint injury.

Dr. Hennen bases his treatment plan on the findings of your exam and X-rays. Some therapies that may heal your joint pain include:

  • Chiropractic adjustments to align the spine and take pressure off injured joint
  • Massage therapy to reduce pain and inflammation while increasing circulation
  • Infrared sauna treatments to detoxify, stimulate healing, and increase circulation
  • Advanced nutrition assessment to nourish your joint tissues
  • Supplements to support cartilage, synovial fluids, muscles, tendons, and ligaments
  • Yoga and Pilates classes to build strength that supports joints
  • CBD tinctures and body balms to reduce pain and improve mobility
  • E-STIM (electrical stimulation) to target and reduce pain

You may need a different combination of therapies during each phase of your joint healing and maintenance.

How can I keep my joints pain free?

Even if your joints are sore and painful, regular activity is part of your treatment plan. You may choose from low-impact activities that raise your heart rate, instigate detoxifying sweat, and promote circulation without stressing your joints. Some joint-friendly activities include:

  • Walking
  • Stair climbing
  • Bicycling
  • Swimming
  • Some types of dance
  • Yoga
  • Pilates
  • Tai chi

Your Spring Creek Chiropractic & Massage expert helps you design an activity plan that promotes health while keeping you engaged and excited. 

If you have joint pain, don’t mask it with painkillers or raise your risk for continued pain by curtailing activities. Set up a joint pain consultation by calling Spring Creek Chiropractic & Massage or booking an appointment online.
