Common Culprits of Joint Pain

When it comes to joint pain, it’s likely resulting from either an exotic movement or exercise you’ve done that has resulted in pain or injury, or your pain is coming as the result of something you’re doing habitually every day.

For instance, if you work at a car wash on the side or for your primary vocation, you’re likely going to experience shoulder, neck, and/or back pain at some point in time. If you’re an avid basketball player you’re likely going to experience pain in your hips, knees, shoulders, and your lower back.

Below, Holmes Chiropractic goes over a few of the common culprits when it comes to joint pain.

First, tendonitis is a very common contributor to joint pain, which have to do with your tendons becoming inflamed or irritated, which will cause tenderness in the area.

Next, arthritis is another common contributor to joint pain, which can occur in two forms, either osteoarthritis (OA) or rheumatoid arthritis (RA). OA has to do with the breakdown of important shock-absorbing cartilage that serves as cushion, while RA has to do with inflammation, irritation, and fluid build-up in the joints.

Fibromyalgia and osteoporosis are both common contributors and causes of joint pain as well. RA, Fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, and tendonitis can all be treated with chiropractic adjustments, which provide drug-free pain relief and help improve symptoms related to the conditions mentioned above.
