Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage in the joints gets wore down. The likelihood of developing osteoarthritis increases if you have suffered an injury in joints like the hips, knees, wrist, hands, ankles, feet, neck or back. This condition can be very painful and make daily life a struggle. It also can have an effect on the rest of your body. This happens due to compensation. If a person has pain in one knee then they are going to put extra weight on the opposite knee. This not only effects the knee you are putting more weight on but it also effects your ankles, feet, hips, pelvis and low back. Pain killers can provide relief until it wears off and it’s time to take another pill. Chiropractic can help the pain by taking pressure off nerves and joints due to compensation. Chiropractic adjustments also help restore proper movement in joints in the affected and unaffected areas. This is important because at Advanced Health of Oakbrook we are concerned with treating your entire body.
The condition joint dysfunction can be described as joints that become stiff and full movement is restricted. There are many difference causes of this condition including, but not limited to, muscle imbalance, injury, or poor posture. Compensation is a common cause of addition pain, just like with arthritis. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is the most commonly treated joint dysfunction. The sacroiliac joint is where the sacrum (tailbone) joins with the pelvis. The joint dysfunction can create pain in the low back and limit movement.
Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is often misdiagnosed for sciatica or a herniated disc. Call Advanced Health of Oakbrook today to be properly diagnosed. At Advanced Health of Oakbrook we will perform a thorough exam and specific adjustments to restore movement and give you relief.
