What is Joint Pain?
Joint pain can refer to any number of things that cause pain in one’s joints. The common symptoms of joint pain that we see in our office are typically caused by overuse, arthritis or injury. That said, there are tons of reasons why someone could have pain in a joint such as poor foot function, posture, lifestyle and a repetitive daily routine.
How Do We Treat Joint Pain?
When treating joint pain, our first step is to reduce pain and inflammation using soft tissue treatment, cold laser, ice, athletic tape and joint manipulation. Once we have reduced pain sufficiently, we can focus on correction of the underlying cause and help you to build better habits that reduce stress to your joints over time. This leads to long lasting success.
