Personalize Scoliosis Treatment
The joints are the spaces between bones which allow for proper movement and function, and they’re vital all over the body. Some are more commonly used than others, but in all areas, proper joint function allows muscles, ligaments and bones to perform optimally.
When joints don’t work properly, however, it can create systematic imbalances all over the body, particularly in the knees, shoulders and hips. Muscles and ligaments will shorten or elongate, which will lead to the leaking of toxins which irritate everything from tissues to nerves. This is where many joint pain issues stem from and can cause further complications, and getting to the core of this pain is our primary focus for joint pain patients at Apollo Health.
Addressing Three Major Areas
There are three major factors which can contribute to joint pain:
- Mechanical: These include injuries and traumas, such as those caused in a car crash
- Chemical: This relates to everything from diet to enzymes in the body, and how they interact with joints. Certain elements will cause joints to swell and cause pain more easily
- Mental: Stress has a real impact on hormones and chemicals, and can affect joint pain in major ways. More on this in a moment
In addressing each of these three causes of joint pain, often more than one simultaneously, we aim to stop them at their root. Our soft tissue adjustments allow for healing not only in the affected area itself, but in adjacent areas which may be compensating. We aim to restore full, comfortable ranges of motion with individualized treatments tailored to your affected areas. Our goal isn’t just to solve the problem temporarily, but to rebuild your joints and muscles to the point where future issues are avoided.
Stress and Joints
Stress can play a huge role in joint pain. It can lead to complications with hormones and chemicals in the body, and enough buildup of these complications can make healthy joint function nearly impossible for the body to maintain. Stress also leads to related issues like headaches, back pain and neck pain.
In addressing these issues therapeutically, we at Apollo Health are providing both general and specialized services at the same time. Stress relief is a large part of our chiropractic care in the first place, and in this case, it has an additional benefit in the realm of joint pain as well.
