4 Tips for Living a Life Free from
Joint Pain in Los Angeles

Chiropractic Los Angeles CA x-ray

Joint pain in Los Angeles occurs during a lifetime of bumps, bruises, and stressors that come from our lifestyle. Let’s see how to live a life free from joint pain and how I work with patients who want an Upper Cervical adjustment.

Here are simple ways you can create a lifestyle that minimizes problems you’re your hips, elbows and knees.


Overcoming Joint Pain in Los Angeles

  1. Practice Proper Posture
    Sit comfortably at the computer and make sure you’re not slumped in front of the screen. Practice walking straight and relaxed to maintain alignment. As noted in my blog post from March 6, Finding Lasting Relief from Aching Joints at Any Age, postural imbalance puts pressure on the neck area. This will lead to misalignment of the C1 and C2 bones at the brainstem level.
  2. Fight Inflammation by Eating Healthy
    Cut down on fatty high sugar foods. In the offices near my practice on Wilshire Boulevard in the Koreatown section of Los Angeles, I’m sure there are plenty of staff meetings where a manager who means well brings in a box of doughnuts. Bring your own veggies. They will taste just as delicious and you will feel much better after. In this article on the website Healthline, Does Sugar Cause Inflammation in the Body?, studies show how eating 50 grams of refined carbs in white bread raises blood sugar levels and inflammatory markers. Lean proteins and green, leafy vegetables are smart alternatives.
  3. Be Smart about Supplements
    Simply taking vitamin supplements won’t help you if you’re out of alignment and you’re eating a diet full of fatty foods and sugar. Make those changes and I’ll be glad to talk to you about supplements that benefit you. Glucosamine can help. It’s naturally found in your body and keeps up the health of your cartilage. It is the “rubbery tissue that cushions bones at your joints,” as described on WebMD. A glucosamine supplement can help strengthen and restore the cartilage lining between joints.
  4. Stay Optimized with An Upper Cervical Adjustment
    To function at your best, get an Upper Cervical adjustment at Truong Upper Cervical Chiropractic Corporation to benefit all areas of your body—and your mind by improving the blood flow to your brain. New patients who visit benefit from my attention. I’ll spend about 20 minutes or more taking history and making an assessment so we can come up with the best possible treatment plan.

Getting started is easy and I suggest you visit the New Patient Special page on my website.
