What is joint pain?
Joint pain is often the symptom of a joint injury or disease that affects your joints, such as arthritis. It may develop for numerous reasons, presenting as:
- Sharp pain
- Decreased range of motion
- Reduced mobility
Joint discomfort can affect your hips, knees, ankles, toes, fingers, wrists, elbows, shoulders, spine, and other joints. Treatment with the One Life Chiropractic team helps diminish discomfort and restore joint health.
What are the common causes of joint pain?
Joint pain may develop because of injuries, diseases, or age-related wear. Examples of joint-pain risk factors include:
- Lack of flexibility
- Work injuries
- Sports injuries
- Car accident injuries
- Being overweight
- Family history of joint problems

How does my provider pinpoint the cause of joint pain?
