Try Chiropractic Care for Joint Pain Relief

By Stephen R. Farris

There's almost nothing worse than waking up in the mornings, sitting up and feeling the agonizing pain of stiffness in your shoulder, knee, hip or other body parts. What could it be?

If you've had a recent injury, it could be from that. Or if you've been injured in the past, it could be catching up with you, especially if it didn't heal correctly or if it was a spot you injured frequently, maybe from overusing that particular joint. It could also be a sign of arthritis setting in as well.

Other conditions can cause joint pain, such as:

  • Bursitis
  • Gout
  • Lupus
  • Chondromalacia
  • Tendonitis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Rickets

These are just a few things that could be the cause of joint pain. Some of the symptoms of joint pain may include swelling, redness, tender to the touch, or the pain persists for several days or longer. 

Home Remedies

Besides taking over-the-counter medication or prescription medications -- which could become addicting -- there are a few things you can do naturally, without the side effects from medications. You can try a topical cream by applying a liberal amount over the area. There are stretching exercises you can do to loosen up stiff joints. Your best bet is to remain as active as possible. Take a warm bath or get a massage, sometimes those two techniques can help give you some relief as well. Another thing to consider is your weight. Dropping a few pounds can do wonders for your joints and overall health.

Chiropractic Care

If the pain persists, or you've been dealing with it for sometime, visit with your local chiropractor. They not only deal with back pain, but also painful joints, neck pain, and other ailments found in your arms, shoulders, hips, knees, wrist or ankles. After you've been examined, he/she will talk with you about treatment options and how long you may need them. Your local chiropractor can also provide tips and suggestions in the areas of nutrition and exercise.
