A joint is the connection of two bones. Joints of the body provide structure and allow us to move. When a joint is injured, the joint may move to much creating instability or it can move too little, creating fixations, arthritis, misalignments and a host of other problems.
Many conditions can create joint pain including: joint misalignments and subluxations, sprained ligaments, strained muscles, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, bursitis, or torn cartilage. Even some medication creates joint pain as a side effect. Proper diagnosis is crucial for determining the treatment plan to stop the joint pain.
With a thorough history and exam, Dr. Brandon Nevel can evaluate your painful joint, find out what is causing your discomfort and determine if chiropractic and physical therapy can benefit you. If Dr. Nevel determines you have a condition that will not respond to chiropractic and physical therapy, he will refer you to the correct place for proper care.
