Is joint pain slowing you down? Dr. Michael Catalanello at Comprehensive Health & Chiropractic in Millersville, PA, offers natural and personalized joint pain relief.

Chiropractic Care for Joint Pain

Joint pain is a common issue that can occur due to anything from an active lifestyle to injuries and conditions like arthritis. Regardless of the cause, it’s not something anyone wants to deal with, but the good news is that you don’t have to. Dr. Catalanello and the team at Comprehensive Health & Chiropractic in Millersville, PA, share below how chiropractic care can provide the joint pain relief you desire and deserve.

The Role of Chiropractic Care in Joint Pain

Your joints consist of bones, nerves, and various soft and connective tissues – all of which help them move properly and support your lifestyle. As such, there are various reasons you might experience joint pain. Misalignment of the bones, nerve compression, inflammation of the bursa, and sprains and strains are just a few examples.

Chiropractic care is integral to relief, as it digs into the root causes. Through various techniques, it helps:

  • Reduce or relieve pressure on the nerves
  • Reduce or eliminate inflammation
  • Improve joint mobility
  • Reduce or eliminate stiffness

Effective Techniques for Joint Pain

Every patient’s treatment plan varies, according to their needs. However, below are some techniques that are effective for treating joint pain.

  • Adjustments and mobilization: Restoring alignment to the joints and using gentle movements to stretch and loosen them are two of the most common methods.
  • EMS: EMS or electrical muscle stimulation is used to help strengthen weakened muscles, reduce inflammation and swelling, and relieve pain.
  • Laser therapy: Warm laser therapy penetrates the soft tissues, improves blood circulation, helps loosen stiff joints, and stimulates natural healing.
  • Custom foot orthotics: Joint pain, specifically in the ankles, knees, and hips, can be caused or worsened by issues in the feet. Custom orthotics can address these issues, relieving pressure on your joints.
  • Therapeutic ultrasound: Ultrasound therapy is also effective in penetrating the soft tissues to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, stimulate healing, and improve circulation.
  • Therapeutic exercises: Your chiropractor can recommend specific stretching and strengthening movements that you can do each day to enhance healing and relief.

Additionally, your chiropractor can walk you through changes you can make in your daily life. For example, nutritional guidance can provide insight into what foods fight inflammation and which ones cause it.
