Chronic joint pain is a common condition that causes great discomfort and can be debilitating for those who suffer from it. This type of joint pain is most common in the knees, shoulders, and elbows, and as the word chronic suggests, it is continuous and does not go away. While arthritis is one of the leading causes of chronic joint pain, there are various disorders and diseases that cause joint pain and inflammation. In some cases, chronic pain leads to significant interference in daily activities and the inability to carry out everyday tasks such as walking, going up and down stairs - even sleep can be difficult and uncomfortable. While arthritis and chronic joint pain is usually associated with the aging population, it can affect anyone at any age.
Joint pain occurs where two or more bones meet, commonly in the knees, hips, shoulders, elbows, and hands. Often, pain occurs when the cartilage in between two bones has degenerated, making the bones rub against one another. In other cases, the cartilage itself has become severely inflamed, leading to heat, swelling, and pain. The first step to dealing with this type of pain is to determine the underlying cause.
The CDC reports that Arthritis effects 24% of all adults and it is a leading cause of work disability. Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, develops when tissue and cartilage at the end of your joints and bones breaks down. This cartilage protects your bones and joints, so as it wears away the joints and bones are exposed to one another. This can cause chronic pain and inflammation in the joints.
Because the cartilage between joints is there to smooth the surface and keep mobility painless, the breakdown of this cartilage and the friction of bone rubbing against bone is the cause of the joint pain known as osteoarthritis. This breakdown in tissue can be caused by:
Osteoarthritis can also simply develop over time as joints are used. Osteoarthritis is most common in older adults (aged 65 and older) and most often involves the knees, hips, spine, fingers and other frequently used joints.
The Arthritis Foundation states that osteoarthritis impacts up to 31 million Americans. Symptoms that point to osteoarthritis include:
As a degenerative condition, osteoarthritis generally becomes worse over time. For this reason, many people eventually seek osteoarthritis treatment in order to maintain mobility and manage pain.Experiencing chronic pain due to arthritis can be disheartening and frustrating. With over 100 different types of arthritis, it can be difficult to pinpoint the right osteoarthritis treatment for you.

We specialize in safe, effective treatments that help patients heal naturally without worry of side effects or long recovery.
All of our treatment programs offer the potential for long-term, lasting results for multiple chronic conditions.
With so many different types of arthritis and so many possible joints impacted by osteoarthritis, selecting the treatment that makes the most sense for your specific needs can be overwhelming. However, maintaining a high quality of life and allowing you to continue participating in the events and activities you wish to is worth the work of finding the right osteoarthritis treatment.
Osteoarthritis cannot be cured or reversed, so osteoarthritis treatments are aimed at managing the pain and preserving as much mobility as possible. One of the most common treatments is to take NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as ibuprofen to treat the pain and swelling caused by osteoarthritis. In some cases, doctors may recommend physical therapy or transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation as osteoarthritis treatment.
While over-the-counter painkillers are the most common osteoarthritis treatment in Richmond, many people suffering from osteoarthritis do not want to take painkillers continuously. Additionally, sometimes these medications are not sufficient to treat the pain and mobility issues caused by osteoarthritis. In some cases, if the disease is very progressed, doctors will recommend surgeries to try to treat osteoarthritis.
Chronic Care of Richmond uses an alternative approach to chronic pain therapy that relies on the healing power of the body. Using medical procedures to address the inflammation and work to regenerate the body’s tissue, Chronic Care of Richmond offers alternative pain management instead of invasive surgery or ongoing medication. This neuropathic approach truly addresses the issue, instead of covering it up as painkillers do.
You deserve to enjoy a walk through the neighborhood, a round of golf with friends, or a day at the beach with your family without suffering from pain or mobility issues all day. At the same time, no one wants to live with the constant worry of what side effects might arise due to taking ibuprofen on an ongoing basis.
That’s why Chronic Care of Richmond leverages FDA-approved protocols and all therapies are highly researched to offer an alternative to surgeries with long recovery times or endless regimens of medications. Osteoarthritis treatments from Chronic Care of Richmond work with the body’s natural function to regenerate the tissue within impacted joints and to reduce inflammation within the body.

DC, BCIM, DAAIM
Dr. Bryant Snyder is a leader in the field of non-drug, non-surgical chronic pain procedures. He has successfully managed thousands of patients suffering from chronic joint pain, peripheral neuropathy, and other chronic neurological and metabolic conditions.
Dr. Bryant Snyder graduated from Life University in Marietta, Georgia and has been in full-time practice since 2002. He regularly attends post-graduate educational seminars on topics such as regenerative medicine, functional neurology, functional medicine, spinal structure, and nutrition and also consults other doctors in his profession.
Dr. Snyder is a graduate of the American Functional Neurology Institute (AFNI). He is Board Certified in Integrative Medicine and is a diplomate in Whole Medical Systems from the American Association of Integrative Medicine.
Dr. Snyder and his wife of 20 years, Jenneane, have three beautiful children, Delaney, Chloe, and Crosby. They enjoy sports of all kinds as well as hiking, camping, and other outdoor activities.
Growing up Jenneane always got an “x” in that box on the report card for “Excessive talking”. Although her teachers may not have agreed at the time, that “x” that just reflected her love of people – being around them, talking to them, helping them. Her passion for people transitioned into a passion for little people as an elementary school teacher. She later moved on to work in a successful children’s franchise company in which she eventually became Vice President, where she helped people who wanted to bring enrichment education to children in their community. But everything changed when Bryant first learned about regenerative medicine and how it was helping people with chronic pain. He was in his 16th year of practice when they realized that by incorporating stem cells into the practice, they could not only help current patients, but they could also help the people in our community who are living with chronic pain and have lost hope. Those who have tried everything else and just want their life back! This was the only natural path for them to take. So, Jenneane quit her career, they both received an immense amount of training, they worked hard, and here they are – offering a safe, affordable, effective, non-invasive procedure for chronic pain to their community. When she is not working in or on their practice, she is with the people she is most passionate about – their three kiddos, Delaney, Chloe, and Crosby who keep them busy and happy. And, at the root of it all, everyone has the right to be happy. If you are living with chronic pain, you, too, can once again be truly happy! Jenneane is seeing the life-changing results in their patients and that, too, makes her happy.
