Natural joint pain relief is something that is searched for frequently in our society. Many people continue to try new pharmaceutical products or nutritional supplements that claim to have fantastic results, just to find out months or years later that those products were harmful and full of side effects that could be life altering. Here we will address truly natural ways to find joint pain relief.
So what is natural? The easiest, but sometimes non-definitive definition is “a compound that can be found in nature.” This would preclude anything that is created synthetically in a laboratory setting, such as pharmaceuticals. There can be value utilizing pharmaceuticals for pain relief, but this article is focused on finding pain relief without the need for such substances.
Natural pain relief is one of the many benfits of chiropractic care. Chiropractic has seen many miracles in its history. There have been many recent studies to try to understand exactly what the chiropractic adjustment provides as far as pain relief. We are just now beginning to understand the science and biology involved in the natural pain relief that chiropractic provides. How about side effects? Very few. The most common side effect of chiropractic care is discomfort or soreness. This usually last for a few hours, if at all, then subsides. The process of being adjusted is very natural and can provide significant pain relief for joint pain sufferers.
So why chiropractic? The worst, most unhealthy thing that can happen to a joint is lack of motion. If a joint does not move properly for long periods of time- say for weeks or months- it may provide its owner with significant pain. As a joint stops moving it begins to lose its ability to move and degeneration begins. The most effective way to restore health to that joint, and thereby provide natural pain relief, is to restore proper motion.
Most patients who enter our office never having received chiropractic care leave with a smile and with significantly decreased levels of pain. This is such a wonderful experience for us because these patients initially show such apprehension before treatment. During their first few visit patients frequently comment on how much better they feel and tell us they wish they would’ve come in sooner. During those same visits we offer patients an overview of chiropractic, its philosophy, and our approach to a natural pain relieving process. We also show how we can not just provide pain relief, but how we can help patients on their way to optimal health and wellness.
One of the most vital portions the treatments we provide is home care. Health involves more than simply coming in for treatment or care. It involves certain activities that a patient may need to add or eliminate from their lifestyle or activities of daily living (ADL’s). This will help optimize the care you receive during your visits.
Other sources of natural joint pain relief include massage, essential oils, changes in diet, and moderate exercise. Most of this can be included in your visit to a chiropractor. Contact us today and schedule an appointment to find your natural joint pain relief. 801-810-4144.
