Joint pain can be felt throughout the body, especially in the hands, feet, knees, hips, and spine. The pain could be persistent, or it could come and go. Sometimes those who suffer from joint pain feel stiff, achy, and sore. Other patients claim they have a burning, throbbing, or grinding sensation in the joint area. For some, gentle morning stretches and over-the-counter medications can help with the pain. However, others may need to see a chiropractor create a specific chiropractic plan to treat the root cause of their joint pain. The chiropractors at Back & Neck Care Center of North County in Florissant, MO, will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the root cause of your joint pain before creating a chiropractic care plan to address it.
