Oh, My Aching Joints!!

As the weather gets warmer, many of us come out of our winter hibernation state and become more and more active. For some people, this means going for a walk or run. For others, it means playing tennis, golf, or another sport. Perhaps you and your children are starting to be more active. Have you noticed any joint stiffness from riding your bike or playing tennis more? Chiropractic adjustments can help.

Many people know that chiropractors can adjust the spine but are surprised to learn that chiropractors can also do adjustments on joints. Pain in the joints can be from repetitive motions, accidents, overexertion, and other causes. You may have heard terms such as “tennis elbow,” “jumper’s knee,” and “carpel tunnel syndrome” to describe the pain you are experiencing. Traditional treatments for these issues often include using a brace or splint to reduce movement, pain medications and muscle relaxers, and sometimes even surgery. Consider joint mobilization as an option. Seeing your chiropractor for adjustments for your joint pain can help restore normal range of motion in any joint that has been injured or “locked-up.” Schedule an appointment today to find out how chiropractic care can get you moving again!
