Alternatives to Joint Replacement
A joint is any place where one bone meets another in your body. Joints are the spaces with the connective tissue that allow you to bend your limbs, turn your head or clench your fists. When your joints don’t move or can’t function as they should, you’ll find your body’s overall functionality is quickly compromised.
Fortunately, many can find relief for severe joint pain without needing expensive medications, injections or joint replacement surgery. Medications and injections often only mask the pain and do not address the root cause. Surgery can be helpful but can also be ineffective or cause even more pain. Even when successful, surgery comes with additional risks.
Pros of Joint Replacements:
- Reduced pain
- Restore quality of life
- Better mobility
Cons of Joint Replacements:
- Risks of complications
- Lifestyle changes
- Long recovery that requires rehabilitation
- Creation of scar tissue
- Post-surgical pain
- Wait time to get in for surgery
- Outliving your new joint
- Failed surgery
- Scar tissue
Midwest Pain Solutions Offers
Our non-invasive chiropractic adjustments and high intensity laser therapy (HILT) aid healing right at the source instead of temporarily masking the problems. Because lasers can easily and painlessly penetrate the tissue, we are able to reach spots of pain that may otherwise be inaccessible.
Our treatments correct the underlying cause of joint dysfunction without the need for surgery, decreasing pain and increasing range of movement while keeping your original joints. New does not always mean better – it is better to preserve your original joints than to get new ones.
Joints are complex structures that enable movement, cushion your body, and support your weight. Any type of degenerative condition or injury can affect your joints, causing stiffness, aches, and pains. Joint replacement surgery isn’t the only option for those suffering from joint pain. Even with very little cartilage left in the joint, the team at Midwest Pain Solutions can help you find relief.
