Back and joint pain are closely intertwined. They’re two different yet common types of musculoskeletal pain that can result from various injuries and certain degenerative illnesses.
You might experience back and joint pain because of an acute injury, which happens suddenly, or a chronic injury. Chronic injuries develop over time due to repeated use or overuse of a particular joint or muscle group.
Chiropractors specialize in treating back and joint pain as well as other symptoms that come with them, such as reduced mobility and numbness. A chiropractic care plan adjusts your spine to bring your whole body into alignment, which reduces pressure on various nerves and can reduce inflammation throughout your body.
Back and joint pain can be the result of spinal misalignment or complication. Many types of pain originate in your back because the roots of all of your nerves start at your spinal cord. Various spinal conditions and injuries can place pressure on these peripheral nerve roots, which results in pain in your back and elsewhere.
Joint pain often comes from injuries involving the musculature around your joints, such as sprains and strains. It can also be the result of some form of arthritis, which is a blanket term for joint pain and inflammation.
One of the most common types of arthritis is osteoarthritis, which is the result of wear-and-tear within your joints or spine. You’re at an increased risk for arthritis if you’re overweight because of the increased pressure placed on each of your joints. A weight management program may help alleviate your symptoms.
