Joint Pain

Joint PainAlthough most people come to see a chiropractor for neck and back pain, many people do not know that pain of the body’s major joints—shoulders, elbows, and knees—is one of the areas of focus of chiropractic medicine.

Mechanical-type problems of the muscles or joints of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee, ankle, and foot can be helped by Dr. Richard Tavares—Dr. Rick the Chiropractor—who uses soft tissue therapy and a variety of manipulation techniques.

Chiropractors correct the underlying cause of joint dysfunction so that the body can restore normal ranges of motion in the region. The good news is that many joints can be fixed naturally with chiropractic treatment rather than surgery.

But joint pain can be caused by many things: strains and sprains, arthritis, and fibromyalgia. Correct diagnosis is important and a referral to another specialist might be needed.
