The easiest way for a chiropractor to help a person suffering from joint pain and dysfunction is to do a proper examination and dispense advice. People come to us with all types of conditions relating to joint pain and dysfunction. What a chiropractor can do is actually take a history, listen to everything that you have to say and then prescribe a specific plan to keep your spine healthy. A chiropractor is truly like a dentist is to teeth, a chiropractor is to the spine.
Keeping your spine healthy is something that you need to do continually throughout the course of your lifetime so prevention is always the best way to go – getting checked by a chiropractor, making sure that you have proper alignment and eliminating the vertebral subluxation or the misalignments that put pressure on the delicate spinal nerves or what most people call “pinched nerves.” When the bones are out of alignment, if they’re not lined up properly when they move, they’re going to grind on each other. That is what is going to start to cause joint degeneration or what most doctors call “arthritis.” Arthritis isn’t the problem. What caused it is the problem and that’s the failure to maintain a properly aligned healthy spine by maintaining good posture and getting your spine checked for those subluxations and misalignments.
A chiropractor can check the alignment, find out where these misalignments are and get rid of that poor alignment situation to improve the mechanics of the spine and get the pressure off the nerves.
