Joint Pain Treatment Through Chiropractic

Dr. Tucker Offers Relief With Activator Chiropractic Treatment

Joint pain is a common ailment that affects millions of Americans. The causes of joint pain can be varied, including:

Joint pain treatment presented by traditional doctors offer little more than a temporary respite from discomfort. Often dispensed in the form of pain relievers, or in more severe cases, painful steroid injections, many people suffering from chronic joint pain have a difficult time finding real relief from their discomfort.


Chiropractic has been helping people who suffer from chronic pain or who have experienced an acute injury to live healthier, happier and fuller lives. This field of medicine focuses upon the complex inter-relationships of the muscular and skeletal systems, working to achieve harmony and balance in order to obtain pain-free movement.

Common joints that chiropractors adjust include:

  • Shoulders
  • Elbows
  • Wrists
  • Hips
  • Knees
  • Ankles

These joints often experience high amounts of stress from constant use, and chiropractic care can help to relieve stiffness, inflammation and pain that may limit mobility and functionality. The relief that adjustments render often help patients to feel more energetic and relaxed.


Clinically proven and demonstrated to offer real results, the Activator chiropractic method works to provide gentle and effective adjustments to every patient. Also valuable for diagnostic purposes, this form of care delivers a gentle pulse to a specifically targeted area of the patient’s anatomy. Many patients experience notable relief after even one such treatment, and engaging in regular chiropractic care of this manner helps to create a lasting answer to the problem of chronic or acute joint pain.

The speed and efficacy of adjustments offered by the Activator Method prevent the formation of tension and resistance in the area of muscles to be treated, providing a more effective overall adjustment. Additionally, the highly targeted nature of this practice avoids any unnecessary movement in other areas of the body.
