Joint Pain Treatment

Joint Pain

Living with joint pain can hurt, but it doesn't have to be hard. Your joints are crucial to comfortable movement and everyday life.

 Acute joint pain lasts only a few days or weeks, but can be frustrating and incapacitating nonetheless. Chronic joint pain lasts far longer, from months at a time, and can be completely life altering.

Symptoms of Joint Pain

Joint pain manifests itself in a number of ways, including:

  • Dull aches
  • Pain
  • Stiffness
  • Soreness
  • Swelling
  • Reduced movement

These symptoms can appear in muscles and joints throughout the body, from areas as large as the shoulders to as small as the toes.

Causes of Joint Pain

Whether you feel it in your knees, hips, elbows, ankles or shoulders, joint pain can have numerous causes. These include:

  • Bursitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Strains
  • Sprains
  • Gout
  • Sacroiliitis
  • Sports / activity injuries

Joint Pain Treatment Options

Just as joint pain can range in severity, you have a number of treatment options and remedies.

For acute joint pain, treatment options include over-the-counter NSAID medications, such as ibuprofen and aspirin. Simple aids such as ice packs and heating pads may also reduce swelling and make life more comfortable.

For severe joint pain, treatment options are more comprehensive:

  • Braces and wraps
  • Physical therapy
  • Nerve stimulation
  • Topical medications, such as arthritis cream
  • Steroid injections
  • Fluid removal
  • Surgery

Additionally, preventative measures can make a difference for joint pain. Healthier life choices such as losing weight, healthy eating and increased activity can cut down on your overall level of discomfort.

What to Do

No one wants to live with aches, pains and stiffness; seeking treatment can provide relief and comes in a variety of options to suit the unique challenges of your condition. Please call 973-544-1196 or request more information online.
