Joint Pain Relief
Joint pain frequently gets lumped with age and becoming older. Wrist pain, elbow pain, ankle pain and feet pain are very common. However, many cases involve far more than an aging body. Joint pain can come from heavy and frequent manual work, from the misalignment caused by accidents and trauma, from degenerative conditions, and even from the sports and exercise that are supposed to make us healthier. At Whole Health Chiropractic in Issaquah, WA, we can diagnose and treat your joint pain.
Symptoms and Common Issues
The sensations of joint pain are often felt in the connecting points of the body. Whether it be shoulder pain, knee pain, neck pain, or even jaw pain, joint pain can happen in one or multiple locations, and it can be debilitating in serious cases. Symptoms are frequently described with burning feelings, swelling, contact pain, and grinding soreness when moving. Stiffness is also a frequent symptom and result that can last for days after the initial pain. Sometimes, elbow pain or neck pain goes away with a hot shower or bath and movement, but it comes back again at the end of the day or after sleeping. In very serious cases, people’s mobility can be severely limited, even with wrist pain or ankle pain. That can cause a cascading health condition of less movement, less exercise, more problems, and degrading health overall. Successful treatment isn’t just about pain relief. It needs to be focused on restoring life activity as well.
The Most Vulnerable Groups
Seniors and those getting older tend to be the first folks people think of with joint pain, and much of that has to do with the large number of people that suffer from arthritis, which is indeed more prevalent in older age. However, other groups susceptible to joint pain include:
- Those with prior injuries, such as those from car accidents or personal injuries
- Heavy use of the same muscle and joints, such as the knees, elbows and shoulders
- Being overweight or obese
- General bad health
- A lack of exercise
