Think about how much you use your knees, shoulders, and elbows. They're moving so much throughout the day. If you like to participate in physical activity, it's even more so than the average. It doesn't help that life can take a toll on your back joints if you live a sedentary lifestyle. Fortunately, at EPIC Life Chiropractic & Wellness, serving Florissant, MO, and the nearby region, our chiropractor can help with a variety of pain issues, including both muscle pain and joint pain.
Types of Joint Pain We Treat
With chiropractic care, we can treat a variety of conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system. For instance, sometimes a joint problem stems from an injury. You may have been on the basketball court and moved your knee in a way it shouldn't be moved suddenly. It could have damaged a ligament. We can help in that situation.
On the other hand, if you have arthritis that's affecting your joints and the pain and stiffness are interfering with your life, chiropractic care can assist as well.
We should note that these are merely a few examples of acute and chronic joint problems our chiropractor treats. We're available and capable of assisting with a variety of other conditions as well.
How We Treat Your Joint Pain
If you have any type of joint pain or muscle pain, we can guide you through exercises that'll stretch the area slowly. It enhances blood circulation to the area as well, which can help promote the healing of injuries. Keep in mind that the two sometimes occur at the same time, and we can help in that situation as well.
Sometimes, the best treatment for a patient is joint manipulation, which ensures the joint is in its proper position. It then no longer stresses the nearby nerves and soft tissue, reducing both pain and function issues.
Massage therapy is sometimes recommended because it can ease joint pain and any pain in the surrounding soft tissue.
Our chiropractor may also recommend laser therapy for your pain. With this treatment, our chiropractor guides lasers toward your joint. It promotes healing while also working to ease your pain.
