Do you have joint pain? Here’s how you can find relief.
People love turning to the internet to diagnose their own health problems. However, there’s a reason you should see an expert — to get an accurate diagnosis and a personalized treatment strategy.
Joint pain can develop for several reasons, and it’s not always arthritis. Common causes of joint pain include:
Even if arthritis is to blame for your symptoms, there are more than 100 types, ranging from gout and osteoarthritis to rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis.
Because each cause of joint pain is unique, you need to know exactly what’s behind your symptoms in order to move forward with the most effective treatment strategy.
Once we have a clear understanding of what’s causing your joint pain, we can recommend a treatment plan to relieve your pain, improve joint function, and reduce your risk of ongoing issues.
Depending on the cause of your joint pain, we could suggest a variety of therapies, such as:
In addition to medical therapies, we also encourage people to make lifestyle changes that can benefit their joints.
It’s difficult to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle when you live with pain. However, your everyday behaviors have a direct impact on your body, especially your joints.
If you have joint pain, it’s more important than ever to make specific choices to keep your symptoms under control. Our team often recommends:
It’s also helpful to learn as much as possible about your condition. After all, when you clearly understand what causes or exacerbates your symptoms, you can make the best choices to avoid painful flare-ups.
Finally, it’s essential to know your limits and not overdo it. Instead, find a healthy balance between activity and rest — and know when it’s time to take a break.
