Inflamed and painful joints can be caused by physical, mental and chemical stressors. When you are attempting to improve inflammation and painful joints, you have to consider all of three of these stressors. Chiropractic can be very helpful in reducing inflammation and making your joints much less painful.

To determine what caused your inflammation and painful joints in the first place, you need to ask your self a few questions. With physical stressors, have you been lifting more than normal? Perhaps bending and squatting more than usual in your garden? Sitting too much and not exercising enough? As far as mental stressors go, do you have more stressful deadlines happening at work than normal, frequent fights with your spouse or kids causing tension and anxiety?
