Joint Pain Q & A

What kind of joint pain can chiropractic care help with?

Chiropractic care can be very helpful for many types of joint pain. Some of the many joint issues that your Lefranc Chiropractic chiropractor can help with include:

  • Tennis elbow
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Knee pain
  • Ankle pain
  • Arthritis

Chiropractic care is a noninvasive joint pain solution that doesn’t require prescription medication, so it’s a natural alternative that many joint pain sufferers today prefer.

How does chiropractic care for joint pain work?

Chiropractic care for joint pain can vary widely based on what kind of joint pain you have. Your Lefranc Chiropractic chiropractor will typically perform gentle hands-on manipulations directly at the site where you’re having problems.

For example, if you suffer from frozen shoulder and have almost no range-of-motion in that area, your chiropractor focuses adjustments on your shoulder and the areas immediately around it. However, if you’re also suffering from spinal imbalance, your chiropractor can perform a correction in that areas as well since it supports better overall body function and whole-body health.

Many joint pain sufferers also find physiotherapy treatments very beneficial. These treatments can include:

  • Electrical stimulation
  • Cryotherapy
  • Hot packs
  • Ultrasound therapy

With the blend of chiropractic adjustments and physiotherapy, you’ll get the maximum joint pain relief without relying on medication. In most cases, you’ll have physiotherapy treatments during the same appointments as your chiropractic care adjustments. Many patients really look forward to the physiotherapy treatments and the relief that they bring them.

How does chiropractic care help with arthritis joint pain?

Chiropractic care can offer great relief for arthritis joint pain. Modern medicine still hasn’t found a true arthritis cure, which means that joint deterioration isn’t controllable. However, the symptoms that go along with joint deterioration are very controllable with chiropractic care.

Chiropractic care can reduce your arthritis pain and improve your range-of-motion considerably. It may also help with muscle relaxation and even with muscle coordination. It’s important that your swelling is under control before having chiropractic care for joint pain, but even with swollen joints, you can still benefit greatly from physiotherapy treatments like cryotherapy.
