Nearly 1 in 4—that’s how many Americans have arthritis, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. At Allied Pain and Wellness of Burbank, CA, our chiropractor staff routinely meets individuals with arthritis and many other types of joint pain, whether acute and chronic. We’d love to be a part of your joint health team and offer a variety of techniques and education to help you or your loved one start feeling and functioning better ASAP.

Common Causes of Joint Pain

Arthritis is a broad term that means “joint inflammation” and there are over 100 different types. This includes osteoarthritis (inflammation caused by age-related “wear and tear”), gout (inflammation caused by a build-up of a substance called uric acid in the joint), and rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation caused by the autoimmune problem, in which the body mistakenly attacks its own joint tissue). Other common joint pain conditions include:

  • Sprains and strains of joint-supporting muscles, ligaments, tendons, and capsules
  • Joint dislocations or misalignments
  • Bursitis
  • Fibromyalgia

Of course, there’s more to your joint pain than the diagnosis. What’s causing the diagnosis in the first place? Our Burbank chiropractor staff finds that joint pain is usually caused or exacerbated by a variety of factors, including:

  • Traumatic incurred during a sports injury, work injury, or auto accident injury
  • Overuse and repetitive movement
  • Poor posture and body mechanics
  • Stress
  • Smoking
  • Overweight and obesity
  • Excessive sedentary behavior

The most common types of joint pain include knee pain, shoulder pain, ankle pain, hand pain, wrist pain, and elbow pain. Keep in mind that if you have a history of joint pain in the past but never sought professional treatment, you may have residual scar tissue, movement patterns, or muscle imbalances which may just be increasing your risk for future injury and pain.
