Natural Tendinitis Pain Relief At Family Life Chiropractic
When one of your joints simply can't perform its normal motions without causing you pain, you've got an annoying and possible disabling problem on your hands. In many cases, the culprit behind your misery is an inflammatory condition known as tendinitis. Unfortunately, taking painkillers will only provide partial, temporary tendinitis pain relief. For more satisfying results, you need to pay a visit to Family Life Chiropractic. Our chiropractor in Clearwater, FL, can administer drug-free treatment techniques that take stress off of your tendons and give them a chance to function normally.
What Is Tendinitis?
While it's true that your muscles exert the leverage necessary to move parts of your body, those muscles wouldn't be able to do anything without their tendons. Tendons attach muscles to bones near the joints, permitting muscle contractions to mobilize those joints. Unfortunately, these connective tissues can be overworked just as muscles can, resulting in pain, swelling, and inflammation.
Tendinitis can develop suddenly in response to an acute injury that produces joint or muscle hyperextension. You can also develop it very gradually, without even realizing it until you can't move a specific joint without pain. Repetitive motions that keep causing small amounts of damage to the tendon can lead to tendinitis in office works, athletes, and anyone else who tends to overuse a joint. For instance, runners may develop knee pain if a musculoskeletal misalignment, coupled with over-training, has placed the knee under abnormal stress. Golfers develop a form of tendinitis along the inside of the elbow, while tennis players feel the elbow pain along the outside of the elbow instead. The ankles, the hips, and even the jaw joints can develop tendinitis.
Chiropractic Treatment for Elbow Pain, Knee Pain, and Other Tendinitis Issues
Joint components that have lost their optimal alignment make the joints more susceptible to tendinitis. Here at Family Life Chiropractic, we will examine your spinal alignment, joint structures, medical history, lifestyle factors, and current symptoms to diagnose your tendinitis. We can then use targeted chiropractic adjustments to correct any imbalances that are producing chronic tendon inflammation. We also use cold laser therapy and massage therapy to reduce pain and swelling without medication, enabling your body's own healing processes to repair the tissue as quickly and efficiently as possible. Corrective exercises and lifestyle changes can help you keep your joints strong, healthy, and pain-free going forward.
