Joint Pain & Chiropractic Care

Joint Replacement Alternatives

The human body is a marvel of engineering. The basic structure is held up by rigid bones. As in the old song, all of the bones are connected by joints. However, unlike a mechanical machine, the bones (ideally) do not actually touch one another. Instead, they are connected with soft tissues, such as tendons and cartilage, that cushion the joints.

Your body has many different kind of joints; some joints move very little, some bend in only one direction (like your knees and elbows), while others bend in two or more directions (like the bones in your spine or wrist). Flexibility varies from individual to individual and is affected by exercise (or the lack of it) and age.

Dr. Bearden is a Joint and Spinal Specialist who has more than 20 years experience treating all related injuries and conditions. SO…before you consider joint replacement, read thru the information on this website and give us a call to schedule a consultation visit!

Causes of Joint Pain

Action Spine & Joint recognize there may be many more causes of joint pain than listed; here we highlight a few that we encounter almost daily with our patients.

Joint Overuse or Strain

Probably the most common cause of joint pain comes from overuse or causing the soft tissue to move in ways it is not designed to do. Stepping on the side of a brick with overstretch the outside of your ankle and you wind up with a sprained ankle.

Other types of injury come from over use or over extension – think “tennis elbow” or “writer’s cramp”. Usually a bit of rest will take care of the problem. More serious injuries may require ice packs or immobilization.

Age Affects of Joint Conditions & Injuries

During the first part of life, our cells replicate rapidly as we grow. Injuries heal quickly and bruises and wounds go away pretty much on their own.

However, the process slows down as we no longer need to grow. The spongy cartilage that acts as a buffer between the bones of our joints loses its elasticity and becomes susceptible to injury.

Impact on Joints from Lack of Exercise

The adage “use it or lose it” certainly applies to body function. With our sedentary lifestyle, our joints are asked to do less and less.

Then, when suddenly called upon for movement, the muscles tense at the unusual strain and place a lot of strain on the tendons and ligaments that connect the joints. Unlike age, this is a condition that regular exercise, particularly stretching exercise, can help.

Diseases (Arthritis, Auto Immune, more) Contributing to Joint Issues

Many types of joint pain are actually caused by diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, gout, or hemochromatosis.

Auto-immune deficiency or cancer can cause the body itself to attack the healthy cells in your joints. Getting the right diagnosis is critical to treating these kinds of joint pain.

My sciatica was bothering me so bad it was making it very difficult to live a normal life, at least to move normally without pretty bad pain. It was limiting the things I could do and even making it hard to do my job at times. After About three months of going to Action, Spine and Joint regularly (2 to 3 times weekly), the pain is now gone! The staff there is super friendly and accommodating and the Dr. Casey and Dr. Josh are amazing! I see why they were voted the Best Chiropractic office in Nashville for many years. Would highly recommend them!

I came to Action with significant disc compression between L5 & S1, with steady pain 8/10 and stabs way past 10. I went from not being able to walk the day after my injury to able to walk without significant pain in less than a week. Dr. Bearden & Dr. Joshua are both experts at their craft, they listened when I told them what was working, what wasn't, and what I could afford, and they worked with me to get me on a treatment plan that has helped me regain mobility & reduce pain in a short amount of time. The front of house staff is helpful, kind & generally lovely. If you're thinking about chiropractic care, look mo further than Action!

After being involved in an auto accident I had major pain to my lower back from a bulged disk, and other joint pains. The pain was constant and went on for months. Due to a pinched nerve and misalignment. After orthopedic appointments and MRIs my Dr. Referred me to these guys for help. I have noticed a major improvement since my first visit and feeling better and better every time I go. I have more energy, less pain, I am able to do things without the pain I was feeling before without the need for surgery! My blood psi is back to normal, and much more! I would highly recommend Action Spine and Joint to anyone needing to alleviate pain in their body! The physical therapy and chiropractic care is on point! And everyone is very friendly and professional.

I had a very positive experience with the staff and provider each time I have a session. I have pain and spinal issues and treatment they are providing puts me on a path for healing. Dr. Casey and Dr. Joshs’ knowledge reflects in my care. They are empathetic and respectful to my concerns and needs for my back pain. So glad I found them.

Love Dr. Josh and Dr. Casey. When I have needed adjustment, they have always straightened me out! I especially appreciate their approach to post-injury care. They carefully assess to rule out fractures or other serious complications, including using X ray on site if needed, before performing a chiropractic adjustment. They also have excellent therapists on staff and a diverse array of equipment that can help correct posture, relieve inflammation, treat pain, and promote healing. My family and I have trusted them for years.
