Chiropractic Enhancing Joint Health
Updated: Feb 18
Chiropractic care not only promotes long lasting joint health in kids and adults, but it also can reduce reliance on medications and other invasive pain management for joints. At Restoration Chiropractic, we are committed to increasing quality of life in our practice members through gentle yet specific chiropractic adjustments. We focus on maintaining proper joint motion to keep those joints from wearing down.
What are some common causes of Joint Pain?
Acute Injury – Injuries are happening all the time. Whether it be from an automobile accident, workplace injury, or trying to relive the glory days and playing over your level of conditioning at the YMCA, injuries happen. The most common joint injuries affecting the shoulders, knees, and elbows can all find great improvement with chiropractic adjustments. In younger adults and adolescents, joint injuries can often be the result of participation in various types of sports. Chiropractic care has shown tremendous results in the rehabilitation process of many types of sports injuries, both in youth leagues and the pros. Once the acute pain and harm to the body has been addressed and repaired medically, chiropractic intervention can be vital in the proper restoration of the joint to its former health.
Chronic Pain (Arthritis, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia) – As many people age, they suffer from arthritic conditions that limit mobility and flexibility of their joints. Arthritis can affect almost any joint and many times can be avoided. Fibromyalgia is also a rising issue that causes often painful joints as a result of improper nervous system communication. Osteoporosis affects at least 20% of the female population over the age of 60.
Inflammation Induced Pain (Lupus, Lyme Disease, Tendinitis, Bursitis) - Pain that occurs as a result of inflammation in the joints tends to be chronic and responds poorly to other forms of pain management. When chiropractic care is utilized for inflammation-based joint pain problems, practice members tend to see results in just a matter of weeks.
Torque Release Technique (TRT) is one technique practiced by both Dr. Grady and Dr. Jessica that helps us be as gentle and specific as possible when it comes to adjusting the spine. This is important when it comes to those achy joints because they can be very sensitive.
