Joint Pain

Joint Pain

Any joint in our body is able to cause pain.  Although the joints in the neck and low back are the most common causes of pain, the joints in the hand, foot or any in between can become painful.  Joints are between bones and allow them to move in a certain pattern.  As a joint starts to move improperly its structures can no longer withstand a normal level of strain.  This causes the cartilage between joints to break down, and the muscles that attach to the joints to become tight and painful.  Chiropractors fix joints by correcting their biomechanics through adjusting, and stretching or strengthening the muscles surrounding the joint.  Restoration of joint mechanics allows for a reduction in pain, and prevents any further damage.

Carpal Tunnel

Carpal Tunnel

Carpal tunnel is the irritation of the median nerve which travels through the forearm to the hand.  Patients often complain of tingling or weakness in the hand.  The nerve is formed from spinal nerves which start in the neck and eventually unite to form the median nerve.  Many health care specialists only focus on the wrist which ignores the many areas along the nerves pathway in which it can become irritated.  Reducing tension and compression of the nerve allows for it to function properly and eliminates the symptoms associated with carpal tunnel.

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the thick connective tissue of the bottom of the foot. This tissue is called the plantar fascia and it connects the heel to the toes to help support the arch of the foot. This tissue can become overworked and eventually painful.

Joint manipulation and soft tissue therapy have been shown to drastically improve patient’s symptoms.
