Joint Pain Treatment at Brainard Chiropractic

Are you experiencing joint point? A joint functions to connect the bones of the body. They are typically made up of muscle, ligaments, cartilage, and synovial fluid. Joints essentially aid in supporting the movement for the body. When a joint is damaged, this can interfere with a person's mobility. Joint pain and aching could indicate that a musculoskeletal problem is present.

Causes of Joint Pain

There are a great number of health issues that could be causing joint pain, but here are the most common causes:

  • Osteoarthritis - Arthritis is an inflammation of the body's joints. Osteoarthritis specifically breaks down the cartilage and the bones connected to a joint. 
  • Rheumatoid arthritis - This autoimmune disorder results in inflammation, pain, and swelling in the joints.
  • Viral arthritis - In this condition, joints become inflamed by a viral infection. 
  • Lyme disease - Bacteria are the culprit of this infectious disease, often spread through ticks. 
  • Physical trauma - An injury from a sport or an auto collision could cause joint pain or soreness. 
  • Gout - This form of arthritis will often manifest in a person's big toe. 
  • Rheumatic fever - This inflammatory disease is often the result of an infection. It affects the heart, skin, and brain as well as the joints. 
  • Fibromyalgia - Alongside musculoskeletal pain, a patient with fibromyalgia can expect fatigue, sleep issues, memory issues, and mood swings. People with fibromyalgia are especially sensitive to pain and pressure. 

Associated Signs and Symptoms

Any symptoms that accompany joint pain will depend on the underlying cause of the problem. Symptoms that are commonly associated with joint pain include stiffness, aching, numbness, tingling, swelling, and fatigue. If these symptoms persist for a prolonged period of time, then the patient's condition may require some medical care. When left untreated, joint pain can significantly diminish a person's ability to enjoy life.
