My Joints are Always Aching
Joints are the connections between bones; they provide cushion and allows you to move. When joints are damaged from disease or injury, it will interfere with your movement and cause a lot of pain.
Joint pain is extremely common and can affect any part of your body, from your ankles and feet to your shoulders and hands. Many different conditions can lead to painful joints, including arthritis, bone spurs, strains, sprains, and other injuries. As you get older, painful joints become increasingly more common.
Joint pain often comes with swelling, stiffness and decreased range of motion. Symptoms may come and go. They can be mild, moderate or severe. They may stay about the same for years, but may progress or get worse over time. Severe joint damage can result in chronic pain, inability to do daily activities and make it difficult to even walk or climb stairs.
It is important to identify the cause of joint pain to avoid irreversible changes.
Your body is built for movement, the 24 separate bones in your spine work together to let you bend, rotate, extend and flex, put simply it allows us to perform the most essential movements of daily life.
When your spine becomes misaligned, fixated or locked out of alignment it loses some of its ability to move. This lack of mobility will cause your spinal joints to inflame and in time wear down or degenerate.
The degree of joint damage can be seen on X rays and will allow us to diagnose and give the best recommendations for your case
This degenerative process takes time, so often; spinal decay is a sign of long-term misalignment damage.
