Tendinitis Pain Relief at Tucker Chiropractic
The human body does so many things with such an apparent lack of effort that we're often taken back when an everyday motion or activity starts to hurt. One of the most common causes of this situation is tendinitis. When the connective tissues that attach your muscles to your bones become damaged or inflamed, pain and stiffness are sure to follow. The good news is that you can relieve yourself of this misery without succumbing to surgery or relying on drugs. Our Blue Springs chiropractor at Tucker Chiropractic offers tendinitis pain relief through natural treatment methods.
What Is Tendinitis?
Without your body's tendons, you literally couldn't move a muscle. These connective tissues give muscles the leverage they need to move your joints through contraction and relaxation. Unfortunately, these tissues are not immune to acute damage or gradual wear and tear. A tendon can be seriously stretched or torn in an auto accident or sports injury, for example, rendering you suddenly unable to move the afflicted part of your body without agonizing pain. More insidious kinds of tendinitis can develop slowly, creeping up on you until you realize that you have pain every time you make a specific movement.
Chronic tendinitis can have many possible causes. Overuse of the joint in question is a common issue, especially in athletes or individuals who perform repetitive motions in their work. As the tendons undergo this constant stress, they develop small tears at a more rapid pace than the body's healing processes can keep up with. The result is a chronic state of low-grade tendon inflammation, pain, and swelling. Well-known examples include:
- Jumper's or runner's knee
- Tennis or golfer's elbow
- Pitcher's shoulder
- Achilles tendinitis
Natural Relief for Elbow Pain, Knee Pain, and Other Symptoms
If you're struggling with elbow pain, knee pain, shoulder pain or any other kind of tendinitis-related pain, come to Tucker Chiropractic. We can evaluate your symptoms, range of joint motion, joint structure, and work or sports routine to determine the exact nature of your injury. We may even examine your stance, gait, and spinal alignment to see whether a larger musculoskeletal imbalance is causing your tendons to experience abnormal stresses. We can then prescribe a tendinitis pain relief plan using techniques such as chiropractic adjustment (including extremity adjustment), acupuncture, corrective exercises, and lifestyle recommendations to help you enjoy a tendinitis-free future.
