What causes joint pain?

Joint pain occurs when there’s damage or disease in any of the bones or soft tissues that make up a joint. Knee pain is the most common type of joint pain, but the joints of your elbows, ankles, and shoulder can also be a source of ongoing pain in adults.

Acute pain can result from direct trauma to your joint from falls, sports injuries, or other events and often lasts less than six weeks.

Chronic joint pain lasts six months or longer and can result from:

  • Bursitis
  • Tendinitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

Repetitive use injuries from running and other sports or manual labor jobs can also lead to joint pain. ‘

Anodyne Pain & Wellness Solutions provides comprehensive care for joint pain. The medical team focuses on nonsurgical solutions to relieve your pain and prevent its cause from worsening.

When should I seek medical attention for joint pain?

Schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Anodyne Pain & Wellness Solutions if you have joint pain that persists, even with rest and over-the-counter medications.

You should also book an appointment if your pain limits what you can do physically, causes a disability, or occurs with symptoms like:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Tenderness
  • Stiffness

The medical team assesses the overall health and function of your joints during a physical exam. They also review your lifestyle and medical history to identify the cause of your pain.

How is joint pain treated?

Anodyne Pain & Wellness Solutions offers nonsurgical, minimally invasive treatments for joint pain that results from injuries, arthritis, or other conditions.

The team may initially recommend acupuncture to increase blood circulation to the injured tissues and therapeutic exercises to strengthen the muscles that support your joint. They also offer: 

Chiropractic adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments involve manual manipulations of the bones and soft tissues of the joint to improve their alignment.

Cold laser therapy

Cold laser therapy is noninvasive and uses low-intensity light to reduce inflammation and pain in the joint tissues.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy

PRP therapy involves injections of PRP, a substance already in your body that contains growth factors that stimulate new tissue growth. Injections of PRP directly into your joint heal damaged tissues and provide lasting relief of inflammation and pain.
