How to Fix Joint Pain

How to Fix Joint Pain Permanently

Do you have stiff, achy and painful joints? Does it hurt to move?

Let me let you in on a little secret how you can fix it. I’ve helped thousands of patients in my Charleston Chiropractic office with joint pain over the past 20 years. That is unless you would prefer to keep trying to take anti-inflammatories instead. 

When patients come in with chronic joint pain, I typically tell then that it is often a physical issue, a chemical issue or a combination of the two. 

When I say chemical, I’m referring to inflammation or inflammatory chemicals. 

Did you know that 7 out of the top 10 killers of mankind are resultant from systemic chronic inflammation? 

It’s not that inflammation is all bad. Inflammation helps initiate the healing process when you first become injured and inflammation is your defense against pathogens like bacteria and viruses. We just don’t want inflammation for a long period of time because too much of good thing can be just as bad for your health and the way that you feel.

Most people don’t realize that they are inflamed. Your doctor might not even mention a word to you about chronic inflammation even after reviewing your blood lab work. 

Chronic inflammation is like a slow fire or a slow burn in your cells. If you think of a sunburn. You burn your skin over and over and over again and cells don’t have the ability to divide infinitely and so you ultimately end up with mutations or cancers. Same thing, this is just across the entire body. 

Lots of things can cause inflammation from toxins that we are exposed to daily, chronic stress, poor sleep… but today our main focus is diet. 

Long story short. Your diet may be causing chronic inflammation. Food intolerances, processed foods, sugar, alcohol all disrupt your gut bacteria which can lead to chronic inflammation. 

I had this athletic high profile lawyer once who came in with severe neck, shoulder and nerve pain. He had tried everything to get rid of his pain. 

He was super fit, very type A and was determined to get rid of his joint pain. Now I tried everything in the book to get rid of his pain. This was a few years ago and I didn’t even have some of the ground-breaking techniques that I do today at my disposal. But I tried everything to get rid of his pain and nothing.

I told him that his pain might be chemical in nature and that he might want to avoid some common foods that might be causing his inflammation: Wheat, Dairy, Sugar and alcohol are all easy bets and a great place to start. I told him my story about how cutting gluten saved my career and was my origin story for feeling amazing and pain free at 46 years old. Ultimately he just kind of stared at me, hoping for a sexier, more exciting answer to his problem other than a dietary change…. Nobody likes hearing that their diet is causing their health issues. Especially when you feel like you have things dialed in right.

Fast forward to a year later. I notice that he’s back on my schedule. He comes into my treatment room and looks me in the eyes and says “Dude, you totally changed my life.”

He goes on to tell me how he continued searching for the answer to his pain even after me. He tried over $20K in different therapies from stem cells, anti-inflammatories, nerve blocks… you name it. “I was at the end of my rope when I thought of you and your story. So I did it. I cut out gluten and you’ll never believe it. The pain went completely away. And even since then, I’ve told a couple of other people the same thing and THEIR pain went away too.”

Cases like this is one of the reasons why I developed the Younger You Blueprint program designed to release pain, pounds and chronic inflammation in 42 days.

The other side of the coin is the physical aspect of joint pain. This is typically due to biomechanical issues like scar tissue, tight muscles and weak muscles creating imbalances across the body. 

Take your knees for instance. Tight ankles, tight toes, tight hips, weak butt muscles and hamstrings all can lead to instability in your knee. When your knees become achy and inflamed, all of your activities will suffer. Sometimes you might be able to warm the tissue up. Get up, move around, stretch and the pain goes away, only to increase again after rest periods like sitting for awhile or sleeping or moving around first thing in the mornings. 

One of the easiest barometers for any joint pain is how does it feel first thing in the morning or after periods of rest. 

If you have joint pain and you’re ready to feel like the youngest version of yourself, schedule in for an appointment at my West Ashley office.
