Joint Pain Q & A
What is joint pain?
Joints make up the juncture between bones. When you have arthritis, or an injury, including overuse, it compromises your joints’ ability to move freely and without pain.
Both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis cause painful joints. You may also experience joint pain due to bursitis, gout, and strains or sprains. Dr. Dillow helps you manage any of these issues, including strains or sprains due to sports injuries.
Can Dr. Dillow help alleviate my knee pain?
More people complain about knee pain than any other type of joint pain. Knee pain can be temporary or long-lasting, depending on its origin. The causes include overuse, poor posture, tight muscles, and arthritis. Dr. Dillow helps you pinpoint the reason for your knee pain and designs a treatment plan to offer relief and help you achieve greater function.
What is cold laser therapy?
A state-of-the-art treatment, cold laser therapy involves applying an impulse light to the affected site. The photons in the light waves penetrate the skin to stimulate healing deep in the cellular structure. It’s noninvasive, safe and results in no side effects.The cold laser therapy reduces inflammation, stimulates the nerves, and promotes the synthesis of collagen to help with wound healing.
What other treatments help with joint pain?
Chiropractic adjustments of the spine and manual therapy can help correct muscular imbalances that lead to joint pain. These complement the cold laser therapy treatments.
