Joint Pain

What is joint pain?

Around one-third of adults report having recent joint pain. Pain can arise from a number of areas around the joint, including bone, ligaments, tendons, or muscles, and affect the knee, neck, hip, ankle, and beyond. 

If the area has damage or inflammation from an injury, underlying disease or condition, you may be experiencing pain. It’s important to seek out care, as joint pain can worsen or become debilitating if left untreated. 

What are the causes of joint pain?

Joint pain can be a temporary issue or the result of a chronic pain condition. Reasons you may have joint pain include: 

  • Bursitis, or joint inflammation 
  • Arthritis, including gout
  • Underlying diseases such as lupus or Lyme disease
  • Tendinitis
  • Sprains or other sports-related injuries

At the first sign of joint pain, visit Cornerstone Acupuncture Institute for treatment.

What are the treatment options for joint pain?

Cornerstone Acupuncture Institute is passionate about minimally invasive treatment solutions that provide pain relief and an improved overall well-being in patients. 

After a thorough exam and potential X-rays or other diagnostic procedures, your provider tailors a treatment plan for your needs. It may include:

Chiropractic manipulation 

This treatment can relieve inflammation and discomfort in specific joint areas. Cornerstone Acupuncture Institute’s experienced and compassionate chiropractors utilize hands-on spinal manipulation to align the body as well as additional therapies to reduce pain.

Massage therapy 

Because joint pain can often involve certain muscle groups, massage therapy is a healthy and effective solution for various joint pain issues. An expert massage therapist works to relieve tension in certain trigger points and improve blood flow.


This massage practice focuses on applying pressure to the ears, hands, and feet. Your skilled reflexologist works to improve the flow of blood and energy to certain regions of the body, reducing pain.


Through the application of needles in certain points of the body, chi, or the flow of energy, can be redirected. Acupuncture, a traditional Chinese practice, provides pain relief, relaxation, and long-lasting results after singular or multiple treatments. 


Joint pain is related to inflammation; therefore, physiotherapy, or a more broad treatment of lifestyle, nutrition, and a combination of exercises may be encouraged. This provides patients with self-empowering tactics they can implement in addition to other treatment therapies.
