Weston, FL – Weston Medical Health Center health professionals learned long ago that treating symptoms of joint pain is never the answer here in South Florida. Working to restore a better range of motion often IS the way to strike at the root of the problem.
“Lots of injuries or discomfort for joints can be treated naturally – and without surgery,” Weston Medical Health Center Dr. Dennis Spoonhour said. “Instead of only prescribing some anti-inflammatory medications to mask the problem – we work to try and heal the soft tissue that is around the painful area. We’ve found this approach to be far more successful in the long run.
Joints connect bones and permit proper movement and function. When joints are not working their best, muscles and ligaments can’t function well, either.
Three factors impact joint function.
- Mechanical-A big car crash or a repetitive use injury often lead to joint damage.
- Chemical-If your diet is poor, your joints are more likely to swell and be prone to more injury.
- Mental-This is apparent when people are under stress. They will get headaches, back pain, neck pain or stomach discomfort.
