What Is Gout Pain?

Gout is a form of inflammatory arthritis characterized by sudden, severe attacks of pain, redness, and tenderness in joints. It often occurs at the base of the big toe. Gout pain is caused by the buildup of uric acid crystals in a joint, leading to intense aches, swelling, warmth, and redness in the affected area. A gout attack typically comes on quickly, reaching maximum intensity within 12 to 24 hours. It can last for 5 to 10 days if left untreated. The first flare-up usually lasts longer, while subsequent ones may grow shorter and affect more joints over time. If uric acid levels are not lowered through treatment, attacks become more frequent and bothersome.

Where is Gout Pain Occur?

Gout pain may occur in many body parts, including:

Dietary Factors

A key dietary factor that can lead to gout is high purine intake. Foods that contain a lot of purine include red meat, seafood, and organ meats (liver, heart, and kidneys). Alcohol, especially beer, is also commonly associated with this problem. Additionally, foods high in fructose, such as sugary beverages and some fruits, can increase uric acid levels. Moderating intake of high-purine and high-fructose products and maintaining a healthy body weight may help to reduce the risk of developing gout.

Gout often runs in families, which means that there is a genetic predisposition. Having a close relative with this condition significantly raises the patient’s risk of getting it as well. Such genetic susceptibility is caused by inherited defects that make it difficult for the body to properly break down and remove uric acid. When the acid builds up, it can form painful crystals in the joints, leading to gout attacks.
Excess weight is a major risk factor for developing gout. Being overweight or obese leads to hyperuricemia, or high uric acid levels in the blood, which causes painful inflammatory arthritis. Along with obesity, other metabolic conditions like insulin resistance, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and kidney disease also raise uric acid levels, making the patient more prone to this disease.

Diuretics, which are used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure, make the kidneys less efficient at removing uric acid from the body. This may lead to gout over time. Aspirin is another culprit, as it interferes with uric acid removal. Other medications that can be harmful include some immune-suppressing drugs, niacin, and levodopa. By causing high uric acid buildup, these drugs create conditions that are favorable for flares-ups in the joints due to urate crystals. Being aware of gout as a potential side effect may help to monitor and prevent painful symptoms.

Chiropractic Care From Our Gout Specialist

Chiropractic care can be an effective component of a treatment plan for patients with gout. Dr. Schulz may use spinal manipulation and mobilization techniques 
to improve spinal function and reduce nerve interference, allowing the body 
to better heal itself. Additionally, we can identify biomechanical dysfunctions 
and imbalances that contribute to higher uric acid levels and painful symptoms.
Our gout specialist provides customized exercise and stretching programs to help restore range of motion and flexibility, encourage the movement of the affected joints, and improve circulation and drainage of excess uric acid from the body. 
Dr. Schulz may use advanced joint manipulation techniques and other modalities to reduce inflammation and pain associated with gout flare-ups. By addressing musculoskeletal factors and supporting overall wellness, chiropractic treatment can be a valuable addition to a patient’s plan of care for managing gout.

Gout Pain Relief

Getting chiropractic treatment can reduce pain from gout attacks. By restoring proper alignment and mobility in the affected joints, Dr. Schulz may alleviate gout flare-ups. We also address the limited range of motion caused by crystal deposits. Ongoing chiropractic treatment, combined with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and other medication, may prevent or minimize future gout attacks. With proper management, many patients find that they experience less pain between flare-ups.

Chiropractic care may also reduce the frequency of gout attacks. Our preventative therapy allows uric acid levels to be better controlled, making flare-ups less likely to occur over time. We can improve overall joint function and recommend lifestyle changes that are highly beneficial for patients with this condition.
By preventing severe gout pain, we help patients perform daily tasks with ease and comfort. People also experience better sleep, mood, and ability to participate in social activities. When gout is properly managed, their quality of life increases.
