Joint Pain: How Chiropractic Care Can Relieve Your Discomfort

Joints are important musculoskeletal structures that connect bones to one another. Some facilitate different types of movement while others remain fixed. Joint pain is a very common and often debilitating problem with around one third of all adults experiencing it at some point during their lifetime. Fortunately, there are treatments that can help and one of the most effective is chiropractic care.

Here’s what you need to know about joint pain and how chiropractic care can help relieve discomfort.

Causes Of Joint Pain

There are many different things that can cause joint pain. The most common is a condition called osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis occurs when the protective cartilage that usually protects the ends of bones begins to deteriorate, causing them to rub against one another. This friction causes pain, swelling and problems moving the joint.

Other potential causes of joint pain include but are not limited to:

  • Gout

  • Bursitis

  • Inflammation of the joint lining

  • Damage to the cartilage at the back of the kneecap

  • Bleeding into the joint space

  • A fracture to the bones of the joint

  • Other types of arthritis such as rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis

 Your chiropractor will be able to assess your condition to determine the cause of your joint pain and recommend chiropractic techniques to help ease your discomfort.

Chiropractic Care And Joint Pain

Chiropractic treatment is a popular alternative to conventional medicine when it comes to treating the many causes of joint pain. It can also be used alongside medications and other conventional treatments.

Chiropractic care focuses on eliminating misalignments in the spine and joints so that there is less pressure on the spinal cord and central nervous system. This allows all bodily systems to function optimally and boost circulation, enabling blood and nutrients to be delivered to the areas of the body that require healing.

A reduction in inflammation helps to counteract spinal and joint motion problems, easing movement and reducing the pain that you might be experiencing, without the need for pain medications.

Chiropractors can also help address other factors that could be contributing to your joint pain, such as poor posture or sleep position, or not warming up or cooling down properly when exercising.

Chiropractic treatment plans are personalized and tailored to the needs of each individual. This means that the precise techniques used, frequency of appointments and overall the care you are given will vary depending on the extent of your joint problem.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does chiropractic treat?

The field of action of chiropractic is extensive, it treats all neuros-musculos-skeletal pathologies.
It therefore takes care of vertebral pain (cervical, thoracic, lumbar), upper limb and lower limb pain, but also certain headaches, jaw pain and certain types of tinnitus, whatever your age. .

Is chiropractic legal in UK?

The Chiropractors Act provides statutory regulation for the profession and protects its title ‘chiropractor’. The General Chiropractic Council (GCC) is responsible to enforce these laws, so it’s illegal without being registered with them.

What happens during a consultation ?

It takes place in three stages:

-Anamnesis / questions: Your chiropractor takes note of your pain / symptoms, your personal and family medical history, which allows him an initial analysis of your pain.

-The clinical / postural examination: It will identify the cause of your pain (orthopedic, neurological and vascular tests if necessary).

-Treatment: Your chiropractor will perform treatments to treat the origin of your pain. Exercises, as well as postural and dietary advice can also be offered to you.

Several consultations may be necessary in order to treat your pathology and obtain lasting results. The treatment plan will be communicated to you during the consultation according to your symptoms.

How many consultations are needed?

The number of consultations will depend mainly on your pathology / pain, its seniority, your age and your ability to recover. The number and frequency will be proposed to you from the first session.

How much does chiropractor cost UK?

Most patients who have chiropractic treatment pay for it privately. It usually costs around £80 to £100 per session. You do not need to see a GP before making an appointment, but it’s best to speak to them for advice first.

Can chiropractor fix sciatica?

Some people with sciatica seek treatment outside traditional medical care. Chiropractic care is a popular natural treatment for sciatica. It can relieve pain without medication and is generally considered a safe treatment option.

How long does it take for a chiropractor to fix sciatica?

The goal of most chiropractors is to relieve pain as quickly and efficiently as possible. If you have sciatica-like symptoms, your chiropractor will probably only need four visits before they’re able to remove all traces of the problem!

Is chiropractic suitable for my child or during my pregnancy?

For kids :

Treatment techniques are suitable for children. They will be different depending on their age, height and weight. I don’t use manipulations until I’m 11.

For pregnant women:

Chiropractic is recommended for pregnant women. It helps relieve pregnancy-related pain, as well as relaxes the muscles of the pelvis. This allows your baby to have more room in your belly and therefore to develop and position themselves better.

I use a chiropractic table that adapts to your body and gentle techniques to relieve your pain or muscle tension. During the consultation I will show you exercises to do alone or in pairs to relax your back.

The frequency of consultations varies according to your needs.

For a so-called “normal” pregnancy without pain, it is recommended to consult once per trimester.

In the case of pain, the frequency of consultations will be explained to you during your first session.

It is advisable to consult once a month for an ideal follow-up.

Do I need to see my doctor for chiropractic care?

No. Chiropractic is a so-called first-line profession, so you do not have to consult your doctor to consult in chiropractic. However, it is advisable to speak to your general practitioner and to keep a regular follow-up.

How do chiropractors know where to adjust?

We use our hands to carefully examine the patient’s response and range of motion, as well gait. This allows us a better understanding on where we need work with their body in order get them feeling better again

How much does a chiropractor cost in London?

The cost of chiropractic treatment in London can vary anywhere from £80 to £250 per session.

There is a lot of misinformation out there about chiropractic treatment and what it entails. The cost varies depending on the individual doctor, but you should make sure they also have years’ experience as well!

Do chiropractors hurt?

The process of receiving an adjustment is painless because it doesn’t involve any intense feelings or physical discomfort. You may experience pops and cracks, but these will not last long enough for you to feel anything else than mild soreness following your visit with us!

Is a chiropractor worth it?

Chiropractic care has been shown to be an excellent side effect in many cases. The improvement of quality-of life is really a stand out factor, and it can make for happier days than surgery or other expensive medical treatments might not provide you with; however there are drawbacks as well such as higher costs associated with visiting your chiropractor regularly.

I had pretty bad back pain, so went to see them. Managed to get a same day appointment. The service was great, friendly, and I left being able to walk without anywhere near as much pain as when I walked in. I will be going back a few more times before I am fully fit. Update - A year or so later I still go here if I have issues. Ida is really great.
