Relief from Joint Pain
Treatment of joint pain should be built around the exact source of your pain and should address the root cause as well as the symptoms. Our team at Advanced Pain Relief Clinic specializes in such treatment. Your healing journey will begin with a comprehensive assessment of your condition, symptoms, and lifestyle. From there, you will receive an individualized plan.
As the joints are part of the musculoskeletal system, chiropractic treatment is essential. Our chiropractor can address any misalignment, compressed nerves, and tension that might be causing your joint pain. Many patients also benefit from therapeutic exercise, which helps stretch and strengthen weakened joints and the surrounding areas. Through these exercises, you can often reduce and prevent joint pain.
Additional Treatment Options
We will also work with you to build better exercise and nutrition habits. The recommendations provided are intended to address the cause of your joint pain. Therefore, if you are overweight, lifestyle recommendations may focus on weight loss, which will typically result in healthier, pain-free joints.
On the other hand, if your joint pain is the result of an overuse injury, your lifestyle recommendations will look a bit different. They will focus on building healthier habits, such as resting, changing workouts, and similar strategies. Regardless of your needs, Dr. Moona at Advanced Pain Relief Clinic is dedicated to helping you meet them.
