Managing Joint Pain with Hilton Head Island Chiropractic Care
Pain is a problem that impacts your life in many different ways. It reduces your range of motion and general mobility while also causing problems with sleeping, enjoying a healthy lifestyle and even interacting with loved ones.
Although joint pain can occur at any time in your life, you can reduce the impact of the discomfort by addressing the underlying causes of the pain.
What Causes Joint Pain?
Joint pain, which is also called arthritis, stems from a variety of situations and problems. In some cases, the pain occurs from natural aging and the general wear and tear of using your body for several years. In other cases, injuries cause the pain because of inflammation in the joints and the nature of the injury. Other individuals find that the body attacks the joints in the same way it attacks a sickness: by causing inflammation in the area. It attacks the connective tissues in the joints, which results in pain.
While the underlying causes of joint pain differ between individuals, but treatment options and natural pain relief solutions allow individuals to enjoy a better range of motion, greater mobility and less discomfort.
Chiropractic Treatments for Joints
Chiropractic treatments for joint pain depend on the location of the pain and the specific type of joint pain. Generally, a professional chiropractor at our clinic evaluates the situation before recommending any treatment solution. In the case of back and neck pain, we offer options like spinal alignment and posture screenings to help adjust the underlying cause of your pain.
Fraum Center for Restorative Health offers services for several different forms of joint pain, which include:
- Chiropractic treatments
- Screenings and assessments to develop a personalized plan of action
- Corrective exercises for better mobility and range of motion
- Nutritional counseling and advice
- Lifestyle advice based on the severity of pain
Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle
Chiropractic care at our clinic helps reduce the amount of pain that individuals experience from poor alignment, poor posture or injuries to the joints. When combined with a healthy lifestyle that includes gentle exercises, a balanced dietary plan and natural tools to reduce pain, an individual can reduce the impact of inflammation in the joints and the pain that he or she experiences.
Pain in the joints stems from a variety of situations. It can start after an injury to the joint, it can relate to the aging process or it can stem from repetitive motions like typing or playing a sport. Regardless of the original cause, chiropractic care and a healthy lifestyle helps reduce and control the impact of arthritis or related joint conditions.
