Joint Pain

Joint pain can range from irritating to severe pain.

Joint pain may range from irritating, such as the inability to use a finger due to pain in a single small joint, to devastating in the context of being unable to walk due to severe hip or knee pain.

You may experience a mechanical type of pain that can be relieved by not moving, or nerve pain that is substantially more unremitting, never reaches a comfortable state, and interferes with all activities, including sleep.

Understanding Joint Pain

There are a few factors that can increase a person’s likelihood of developing this pain, including: 

  • Previous joint injury
  • Repetitive use or overuse of a joint
  • Osteoarthritis/rheumatoid arthritis
  • Depression, anxiety, or stress
  • Being overweight
  • Age
  • Bursitis

The treatments for these pains can be quite different. Occasionally, you may have undergone a joint replacement in an attempt to relieve pain and, while usually successful, sometimes this treatment leaves you with continued pain or an entirely new pain in another area.

We have close relationships with our orthopedic colleagues to pursue both the evaluation and treatment of pain in or surrounding your joints, ranging from the treatment of athletes to the patient who has undergone extensive reconstructive surgery and unfortunately still suffers from persistent pain.
