Joint Pain

Joint pain is one of the common musculoskeletal complaints among residents of Frederick, MD. At Frederick Chiropractic Wellness Center, we provide joint pain relief by finding and treating the underlying causes. Whether you suffer from chronic joint pain or occasional joint pain, chiropractic care can help you make a full recovery.

 

Common Types of Joint Pain

For patients in Frederick, MD, joint pain can strike all over the body. No matter where joint pain occurs, patients find that joint pain can be debilitating. Joint pain can even prevent patients from engaging in everyday activities that they love. Some of the most common types of joint pain include:

  • Shoulder and elbow pain
  • Knee pain.
  • Back pain.
  • Pain in the joints of the fingers.
  • Hip pain.

There are many different causes of joint pain in Frederick. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Arthritis. Arthritis is a condition that occurs when the joints become inflamed and painful. This can be due to acute or chronic injury, illness, or poor movement or poor nutrition causing inflammation
  • Injury. Recent injuries and old injuries can both cause pain in the joints. While new injuries can cause the joints to become temporarily inflamed and achy, old injuries can develop scar tissue and poor movement patterns which prevents the joints from functioning properly.
  • Stress. Stress can cause muscle tension and tightness, leading to joint and muscle pain. Stress is a common cause of pain in the neck and back.

In addition to the above causes, sometimes the joints hurt due to patient inactivity. A patient with a slipped disc, for example, may not move much. This causes the joints become stiff and sore.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

At Frederick Chiropractic Wellness Center, we use the gentle techniques to treat the underlying cause of the joint pain. With all natural chiropractic treatment, our patients get the care they need to feel comfortable again. Some of the most common techniques we use to treat joint pain include:

  • Spinal adjustment. Spinal adjustment improves joint flexibility, reduces pressure on the spinal cord and encourages the body to heal.
  • Stretches and exercises. We teach patients specific therapeutic stretches and exercises to help them improve joint mobility and maintain muscle strength while healing from injuries.
  • Lifestyle advice. We provide lifestyle advice to patients to control joint inflammation, help them avoid further injury and to prevent the joints from becoming painful due to everyday activity.
  • Nutrition counseling. Often a diet high in acidic foods can lead to a swelling of the joints. We teach patients to eat an anti-inflammatory diet to prevent joint pain from occurring.
