Joint Pain Q & A

What is joint pain?

Joint pain is discomfort or soreness in one or more of your joints. Your joints form the connection between two or more bones. Most of the joints in your body are mobile, enabling you to walk, lift, swim, and write. 


Joint pain is common and may occur from an acute injury, overuse, or age-related wear-and-tear. The type and severity of the pain you feel may depend on the joint affected and the cause. 

What are common causes of joint pain?

Joint pain may occur from any number of causes. Some of the common causes of this type of pain include:


  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Sprain or strain
  • Dislocation
  • Bursitis
  • Fracture


Arthritis, which is inflammation and stiffness in a joint, is the most common cause of joint pain. Joint pain is also common following sports injuries.


You can also develop joint pain from joint dysfunction, a condition where your joints are stiff and have restricted movement. Poor posture, muscle imbalance, and over or underuse of a joint may cause this type of joint pain. 

What happens during an evaluation for joint pain?

The team at 5th Avenue Chiropractic NYC conducts a comprehensive evaluation when you come in needing help for your joint pain. Your provider listens to your concerns and asks detailed questions about your symptoms, when they started, and how they affect your day.


They also review your daily routine, eating and exercise habits, and medical history. Your provider completes a physical exam, paying particular attention to the alignment of your joints and spine. They may also have you complete X-rays of the joint responsible for your discomfort so they can confirm or rule out a cause.


The team at 5th Avenue Chiropractic NYC also does an ergonomic assessment to evaluate your body posture and position at your workstation. 

What are the treatments for joint pain?

The team discusses your joint pain, the underlying cause, and their treatment recommendations. Your plan aims to relieve your joint pain and restore normal function.


Treatment for joint pain may include:


  • Spinal adjustments and manipulation
  • Therapeutic exercises
  • Massage therapy
  • Electrical stimulation therapies
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Cryotherapy


The team ensures you get the right treatment plan for the best experience.
