Joints are formed when two bones connect via multiple tissues,
including muscle, cartilage and tendon. Often times they are filled with a
substance called “synovial fluid”. If this fluid becomes inflamed, or if
there is damage to cartilage, then joint pain will inevitably result. It is hard
enough to deal with any type of pain, but when it affects the joints this can
be the worst pain of all. The depleting, stressful affect joint dysfunction
can have on your life is rather significant. Joint pain hurts and has the
ability to limit the activities you love to do. If you have constant, debilitating
joint pain, then please consult your chiropractic doctor. We may have
suggestions for treatments and lifestyle modifications that can give you
relief of your joint pain and help you get back to a normal quality of life.
The pain, of course, is just an indication that you have a problem. In fact, without actually knowing the cause of
sore and aching joints, it is almost impossible to treat and rid yourself of these symptoms. Joint pain is best
described as a tenderness or discomfort when touched, swelling of the affected area, a bruised feeling, or
restriction from any sort of movement. Many people even give their joint pain a nickname; “a hitch in my get a
long”, “a trick knee”, “a catch in my hip” and “a crick in my neck” are just a few examples people use.
The Symptoms Of Joint Dysfunction Include:
- Redness of the skin around the affected joint.
- Swollen joint that's tender and warm to the touch.
- Joint pain either constant or irregular.
- Joint stiffness or fixation.
- Loss of joint function, mobility and strength.
As we become older, the cartilage in our joints begins to wear thin. For many, this is the source of their joint pain.
Any joint in your body can be affected; neck, knees, shoulder, back, feet, ankles, arms and other joints all are
susceptible to acquiring these troubles. Joint pain can severely detract from your quality of life, make it more
difficult to get around and generally make it harder to function on a daily basis. Finding relief should be your
number one priority when experiencing these difficulties.
