Joint/Muscle Pain and Stiffness

For over 20 years, Dr. Zafis, DC has been using chiropractic therapies, which assess the biochemistry and function of the muscles. During the last two to three years, chemicals in the environment and our food have led to an increase in pain. Unfortunately, this is not recognized by either alternative or traditional health care practitioners.

Knee Pain from Chemicals in the Environment — A Case Study

Some patient’s pain can be resolved simply by identifying and then detoxing a chemical in the system. One patient was a landscaper who had been suffering from knee pain for several years. We recommended supplements specific to her issue, and her knee pain resolved. For her treatment plan, we did not do chiropractic adjustments or manual therapy on her knee. Once we identified the chemical in her muscles, simply detoxing out the chemical and resolving the imbalance that the chemical caused resolved the pain. Other patients, however, may need manual therapy in order to manage or resolve pain.

Two things have to happen for a detoxification program to be successful. The first is to identify the chemical, because different chemicals require different nutritional supplements for detoxification. The second step is to test for the ramifications of the chemical in the body and then nutritionally address those imbalances. The clinic has had many successes in helping patients accomplish this, which has resulted in a decrease in or elimination of pain.

Joint Pain May Be Muscle Stiffness and Pain

The clinic does very detailed testing for the biology and function of the muscles and the spine. Our more specific testing has shown a rise in pain and other symptoms due to a significant increase of chemicals in our food and environment.

It is very common for a patient to think that they have joint pain when it is actually in some cases due to muscle stiffness and pain resulting from chemicals. If the joint pain began or has gotten worse in the last three years, Dr. Zafis, DC will check for chemicals causing muscle stiffness and pain. This may help reduce or eliminate what many patients perceive as joint pain.
