Top 5 Effective Joint Pain Treatment Options

Joint pain is caused when cartilage in the joints is worn down over time. The longer joint pain symptoms such as swelling, stiffness, tenderness, and grating at the site persists, the worse symptoms may become. 

In the later stages of osteoarthritis, bone spurs can develop, harming remaining cartilage. This eventually causes less to no protection, producing a painful rubbing of bone-on-bone contact.  

There are 5 main treatment options Anchorage Spinal Care offers patients to treat and even cure joint pain. 

  1. Adjustment Techniques

Chiropractic care uses an individualized approach to the type and cause of joint pain. Treating osteoarthritis with personalized adjustment techniques is a safe way to treat joint pain unless there is swelling involved. If an area contains swelling, this issue needs to be resolved before starting any chiropractic treatments. 

  1. Spinal Manipulation

Osteoarthritic pain in the back and neck can often be treated with spinal manipulation, or physically aligning of a specific joint with hands-on force to that area. 

  1. Infrared Sauna

Infrared sauna rooms use heat to relieve pain. Controlled heat is used to treat any painful joints and improve circulation.

  1. Electrotherapy

Electrotherapy uses tiny electric pulses at the site of joint pain. These pulses are not painful but stimulate the nerves and muscles that are affected within the joints. 

  1. Ultrasound

Ultrasounds are not just for imaging. This ultrasound treatment is applied to soft tissues and associated joints. The ultrasound causes a massaging effect within the soft tissues, which treats swelling, pain, tenderness, and stiffness.
