If you are living with joint pain, you know how debilitating this condition can be. Often, people who are suffering with this type of pain are simply told to take pain relievers while symptoms are dismissed as "what happens when you get older". Fortunately, chiropractic care takes a different approach to joint pain. Rather than try to solve the problem quickly with pills, chiropractic works to improve your overall health. We at ChiroCare serving Fairlawn and surrounding areas of Bath and Copley, know how chiropractic care can help with joint pain.
Chiropractic care focuses on the spine. All nerves in the body connect into the spine, and most of the time our bodies receive pain signals from nerves that are inflamed or being irritated by muscles that are out of place. Because of how these nerves are connected, adjusting the muscles of the back (particularly those that are around the spine), can alleviate pressure and reduce the inflammation of nerves throughout the body.
For someone with joint pain, that means that seeing our chiropractor can help with finding an actual long-term solution. Rather than temporarily masking the pain with drugs, our chiropractor will work with you to reduce the inflammation in the nerves that are sending pain signals to the brain.
Time Is Important
It's important to realize that a real solution to this problem will take time. Isolating the individual nerves that are causing the pain can be tricky. While it may be easy to assume that the pain is being caused by the nerves in the same area that is experiencing pain, it's often the case that the pain is being caused by inflamed nerves in another area of the body and that the signals are being "mixed up" by the time they reach the brain. This is often the case when the spine is under compression. Fortunately, our chiropractor can help with this.
