What Causes Joint Pain?

Joint pain typically affects most people at some point in their life due to injuries or overuse. It can make movement, various activities and daily life a challenge. 
Some typical causes of joint pain or arthritis are:

Who is at Risk for Joint Pain Related Conditions?

As we age, the general ‘wear and tear’ on our joints increases as the available cartilage or “cushioning” decreases resulting in inflammation and irritation, especially with movement. Typically, this means that the older population is at greater risk for joint pain and joint-related injuries however, those with certain auto-immune diseases also can experience joint pain. 

When Should a Doctor be Consulted for Joint Pain?

If you have recently experienced an injury that is resulting in nearby joint pain, or have been experiencing joint discomfort and pain when moving consistently you should talk to your primary care physician about seeing pain management to be evaluated and treated. 

Joint & Arthritis Treatments

Treatments can vary based on pain origin and other related conditions, but in general some of our minimally invasive, effective joint and arthritis pain treatments include:


Joint Injections

Joint injections are done under fluoroscopy guided imaging and inject anti-inflammatory or pain-blocking medication in the affected joints for inflammation reduction, pain relief and mobility. 

*This is done outpatient and does not require anesthesia. 


Regenerative Therapies

Two types of regenerative therapies can be used to reduce or eliminate inflammation and restrengthen the area in pain. Platelet-rich Plasma and Prolotherapy are used for this stimulation and pain reduction treatment.

*This is done outpatient and does not require anesthesia


Medication & Topicals

Various anti-inflammatory medications are used to reduce the inflammation and make the joint pain more comfortable. There are also topical agents for inflammation that can help treat these symptoms. 

*This is done outpatient and does not require anesthesia.
