Chiropractic Care and Joint Health

by |

Joint health is essential for maintaining an active and pain-free lifestyle – but did you know that chiropractic care plays a crucial role in preserving and enhancing this aspect of our health? At Bare Chiropractic, we focus on holistic care that supports joint health and overall well-being. Let’s explore how chiropractic care can help you maintain healthy joints and what specific methods Dr. Thomas Keogh can use to improve your joint function.

The Importance of Healthy Joints

Joints are the connections between the bones in your body that allow you to perform all kinds of movements, from walking and bending to more complex athletic activities. Healthy joints are vital not only for movement but also for maintaining stability and strength.

Over time, joints can suffer from wear and tear, leading to discomfort and restricted mobility. Factors contributing to joint issues include age, injury, repetitive movements, and inflammatory conditions like arthritis.

How Chiropractic Care Supports Joint Health

Chiropractic care is centered around the adjustment of the musculoskeletal system, particularly the spine, to ensure the body functions optimally. This type of care is highly beneficial for joint health, as it impacts spinal alignment and joint function, and it reduces inflammation.

Spinal Alignment and Joint Function

A well-aligned spine is crucial for overall joint health. Misalignments, also known as subluxations, can lead to joint pain and dysfunction because they disrupt the communication of the nervous system, which controls all bodily movements and reactions. Regular chiropractic adjustments help maintain proper alignment and reduce stress on joints, thereby enhancing mobility and preventing conditions that may lead to pain and inflammation.

Reducing Inflammation

Inflammation is a common symptom associated with joint pain and arthritis. Chiropractic care helps reduce inflammation by improving the function of the nervous system and the immune response, as it improves blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, aiding in the reduction of swelling and improving the healing process.

Chiropractic Care for Joint Health

Regular chiropractic adjustments are the cornerstone of our practice. These adjustments help restore joint function and prevent wear and tear by ensuring proper alignment and movement patterns.

Dr. Thomas Keogh also uses the Torque Release Technique (TRT) as a primary adjusting technique. This advanced method of spinal adjusting targets specific subluxations within the spine using a gentle touch and light pressure by a hand-held instrument called the Integrator. This technique is unique because it focuses on enhancing the tone of the spinal cord, aiming to reduce tension and improve neural integrity. By improving nerve function and spinal alignment, TRT helps to restore balance to the body, promoting overall joint function and resilience in the whole body.
