Joint Pain Q&A

What causes joint pain?

Common joint pain causes include acute injuries, overuse, and underlying disease. Conditions The Center for Integrative and Functional Health and Wellness often treat include:

  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Tendinitis

Arthritis is the number-one cause of chronic joint pain. There are around 100 kinds of arthritis. The one that affects more people than any other is osteoarthritis, caused by the joints wearing down with age.

How is joint pain diagnosed?

The path to an accurate diagnosis of your joint pain starts with your consultation. Your provider at The Center for Integrative and Functional Health and Wellness examines the affected joints and asks you about your symptoms. They need to know when your pain started, what it feels like, and if anything seems to make it better or worse.

Depending on what’s found during your exam, your provider might also order blood tests to look for signs of infection or inflammation. Diagnostic imaging helps diagnose joint pain, so you might need an X-ray, CT scan, or MRI.

How is joint pain treated?

The Center for Integrative and Functional Health and Wellness uses conventional and complementary therapies to treat joint pain. They use a variety of treatments in your personalized rehabilitation program that can include:

  • Anti-inflammatory medication
  • Chiropractic care
  • Acupuncture
  • Physical therapy
  • Strapping or a brace
  • Orthotics (supportive shoe inserts)
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Regenerative medicine
  • Steroid injections
  • Viscosupplementation
  • Nerve blocks

Depending on the cause of your joint pain, you might need to rest the affected area. This is important for sprains and strains to give the tissues a chance to heal. However, it’s vital to stick with your physical therapy program to prevent connective tissue and muscles from getting too weak or shortening.

Taking good care of your general health also boosts your recovery from joint pain. Eating well, watching your weight, managing stress, and stopping smoking promote better, faster healing. Your provider can suggest an appropriate diet and supplements that can help with joint pain.
